Following on from Sam’s post about Bonnie Tyler’s ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’ and Bill’s post on Annie Lennox’s ‘Love Song for a Vampire’, I thought I would post a few of my favourite Gothic love songs. (As it happens, I am planning to walk down the aisle to ‘Love Song for a Vampire’).
My favourites are, in no particular order:
- The Cure, ‘Love Song’
- Nick Cave, ‘Into My Arms’
- Florence + The Machine, ‘Howl’
Arguably ‘Howl’ isn’t that romantic – but it’s dark, it’s about love gone wrong and it’s about werewolves. Join in the conversation below!
