Looking for beautiful unknown emotional songs/ballads?


Hi :), I’m looking for beautiful songs. They can come from a metal, rock, indie, oldie, jazz, funk, soul artist, anything that is deep and touching.

Please, pretty please, no clich├ęs like Bed of Roses or too pop like Taylor Swift and anything that’s been playing on repeat a thousand times on the radio….

The Stone Roses – She Bangs the Drums, Waterfall, Elizabeth My Dear, This is the One

R.E.M. – Sitting Still, Shaking Through, We Walk, Perfect Circle, Harborcoat, Time After Time(AnnElise), So. Central Rain(I’m Sorry), 7 Chinese Bros., (Don’t Go Back to) Rockville, Driver 8, Maps and Legends, Good Advices, Wendell Gee, Green Grow the Rushes, What If We Give It Away?, Fall on Me, Cuyahoga

Radiohead – No Surprises, Lucky, The Tourist, Subterranean Homesick Alien, How to Disappear Completely, Knives Out, Morning Bell/Amnesiac, The Gloaming

Four Opeth songs and no “Hope Leaves”?

And I’m not a big Bullet For My Valentine fan but “Say Goodnight” is pretty emotional if you know the meaning of the song.

Breaking Benjamin’s “Dear Agony” is a good one too.

Here are some bands that have romantic songs.

Bullet For My Valentine-Road to Nowhere, Hearts Burst into Fire (Acoustic), Forever and Always (Acoustic)

Lifehouse-Everything, You and Me

Three Days Grace-Wicked Game, Lost in You

Goo Goo Dolls-Iris

The XX-Sunset

Oasis-Wonderwall

Just some songs that were on top of my head.

since you’ve listed opeth there… try listening to night and the silent water by them.
then…doomed to walk the earth by swallow the sun. errm… in the shadow of our pale companion by agalloch. These songs are brilliant. Though confined within metal, these songs have influences of jazz(opeth). Agalloch is atmospheric black metal and swallow the sun is doom.

You’d probably really like Joseph Arthur- here’s a couple of examples:
