Best of Indie Love Songs

Posted at July 23rd, 2015 | by Kamakshi Bhat | in

The myth says that love songs are limited to the likes of Sinatra, Adele or the Queen of love Songs Taylor Swift. But is that so?
 
Though Indie Artists are generally known to play more sad songs than love ones, but when they do play a romantic track, the time stands still and you understand the literal meaning of ‘Love is in the air’. Here is a list comprising of our pick for best of Indie Love Songs.

 

1. Angus and Julia Stone- Big Jet Plane

 

 

His voice is enough to make it sound like a love song and the lyrics could have been absolutely rubbish and it would not have mattered. But the blend of his voice, the never-ending drums in the background and amazing lyrics makes it a perfect love song.

 

2. Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes- Home

 


 
And in the streets we’re running free,
like I’s only you and me
Geez, you’re something to see,
..Home is wherever you are..

 

This one is a winner.
 

3.Bob Marley- Is This Love

 


 
Sure it’s reggae but we all know indie is just a wannabe reggae which makes this song somewhat indie. Bob Marley in his perfect soothing carefree voice is crooning “I wanna love and treat you right, I wanna love you every day and every night”. How can you resist that?

 

4. The Beatles – I want To Hold Your Hand

 


 
Back in the day when things were for a lack of better word not very ‘casual’, The Beatles very innocently mentioned that they wanna hold your hand. And we would let them, any day, hold our hand for the masterpiece this song is.

 

5. Meiko- Stuck On You

 

 

It’s just one of those cute little love songs we like to hear from time to time to still have hope that true love may actually exist. Do not deny it, we do it. Listen to this song, and you will see a heart shaped candy, rainbows and unicorns.

 

6. City and Colour- The Girl

 


 
Girls, this one is for you. This indie acoustic record is every girl’s secret dream.

 

While I’m off chasing my own dreams
Sailing around the world
Please know that I’m yours to keep
My beautiful girl

You can feel the love in his voice. So beautiful.

 

7. Alt j – Every Other Freckle

 

 

Let’s just say, The Beatles would have never dreamed of writing these lyrics.
