    Default Best love song for your type.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=70sbo...e_gdata_player

    So, I want to ask you to post the song you feel best fits your personality in relation to falling in love. I mean more so what attracts you, not what you would use to attract someone else, and if you like, why?

    So my song that I feel would most attract me to a guy would be "Just Say Yes" by Snow Patrol. I would explain, but to me if you listen to the song, you'll get it, lol. So, I hope you're intuitive. I will try though.

    It's a mix of the slightly hopeful yet serious, sad mood and the lyrics. He sounds convinced of his love and is almost taunting me with assurance if that makes sense. It's slightly sinister because the thought of responding without reason would seem foolish and it must be a trick, but it's purity superceeds that. In short, it appeals to my sensual primary infantile side by having lines of assurance that comfort me, and it appeals to my secondary aggressive tendencies by being spontaneous in how "he" wishes me to respond almost without thinking.

    Also, it's open to guesses at what would attract a certain type. Emphasis on infj would be cool, but not necessary.

    I blogged about it, reasoning is in below:

    http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...=1#post1369718


    BUT.

    for all those TL;DR

    Here is the synopsis:
    I'm not one of those people (as highlighted in my unbreak my heart blog) who particularly enjoys love songs, mainly because i am just not that person in those songs, i do not see the world through rose coloured glasses when i love someone. I'm too awkward, impetuous and i guess "unromantic" for the all encompassing Whitney Houston "i will always love you" style of things, they don't speak to me. I prefer a little realism with my love, the tangible over the intangible.

    Which is why i love this song, it kids of sums me up in a relationship, awkward, affectionate, and resigned to thinking i will somehow kill it. It's just one of those songs which makes me happily sulky.


    Here are the lyrics.

    Perfect Now - Sarah Blasko.

    Everything is perfect now
    I dont want to make a movement
    I'm too scared to breathe; I might do something wrong
    As you're sleeping silently
    Perfect beauty laid before me
    I feel every second is a life time long

    Here's a place I've been before
    A place some say I should go more
    But every journey just leads me so far away
    When I just wanted to stay
    I just wanted to stay.

    So that's why I wont wake you where you lie
    If I could now I'd freeze time
    I cant find forever in your eyes
    I should leave you while they're dry

    Living underneath this guilt
    I cant leave a house that I have built
    Though I feel it sinking further everytime
    And the weight of my mistakes
    Means that everything I touch breaks
    I dont want to see you as the next in line

    So that's why I wont wake you where you lie
    If I could now I'd freeze time
    I cant find forever in your eyes
    I should leave you while they're dry

    Terrible things happen to good people every day.
    Consequentially, I am not one of the good people.
    I am one of the terrible things.
    .

    It basically breaks down to the direct simplicity of "Call me, let's hang out and have good times in good weather. I dig you, wanna be my man?"


    "Yeah, I know she's cute, but hold back because you and me are a must and I'm sure that it's love now I've built the courage to come and claim you"

    And the best not in love song right here

    Seems I'm most partial to those who dig me enough to want to drag me out of the bat cave or away from a nasty woman out of what I consider to be real love.

    Beautiful thread btw

    Interesting thread, because I'm easily lured in by boys who play me pretty music...especially if they know exactly what songs would push my buttons. In fact, I am quite taken with someone who has a talent for doing this.

    I actually like sappy love songs, but tend to be more intrigued if a guy can show me something NEW I haven't heard before, and if it SOUNDS really profound and atmospheric and full of emotion. As much as I like sweet love songs and nice lyrics, I tend to be more lured in by stuff like this (is this even a love song?) ...timing and context are important.



    Another song that probably isn't a love song which had a similar effect on me in the past was "New Slang" by The Shins.

    I'm attracted to sounds and feelings and a man's sense of aesthetics and knowing what I'll like, not sincere words, though I like those too...it's weird, I mean I totally like stuff like "Swing Life Away" by Rise Against, but in and of itself it's not as intriguing because it's so straight forward and sweet.

    Oh I should make a separate post here saying how much I love this song, and it's actually a love song, and it has many qualities that I find very alluring - I like how romantic and atmospheric it is, and also how it relies on lovely descriptions of sensory experiences. It would probably be effective on people of my type. (Yeah sorry I'll actually follow the rules with my second post, instead of replying honestly to what has actually worked on me in the past ....)

    Daniel, when I first saw you
    I knew that you had a flame in your heart
    And under under wild blue skies
    Marble movie skies
    I found a home in your eyes
    We'll never be apart

    And when the fires came
    The smell of cinders and rain
    Perfumed almost everything
    We laughed and laughed and laughed
    And in the golden blue car
    You took me to the darkest place you knew
    And set fire to my heart

    When I run in the dark
    Daniel
    To a place that's vast
    Under a sheet of rain in my heart
    Daniel
    I dream of home

    But in a goodbye bed
    With my arms around your neck
    Into our mouths the tears crept
    Just kids in the eye of the storm
    And as my head spun round
    My dreams pulled me from the ground
    Forever to search for the flame
    For home again
    For home again

    When I run in the dark
    Daniel
    To a place that's vast
    Under a sheet of rain in my heart
    Daniel
    I dream of home

    When I run in the dark
    Daniel
    To a place that's vast
    Under a sheet of rain in my heart
    Daniel
    I dream of home

    i love this song. every single word.

    I want somebody to share
    Share the rest of my life
    Share my innermost thoughts
    Know my intimate details

    Someone who'll stand by my side
    And give me support
    And in return
    She'll get my support

    She will listen to me
    When I want to speak
    About the world we live in
    And life in general

    Though my views may be wrong
    They may even be perverted
    She'll hear me out
    And wont easily be converted
    To my way of thinking
    In fact she'll often disagree
    But at the end of it all
    She will understand me

    I want somebody who cares
    For me passionately
    With every thought and
    With every breath
    Someone who'll help me see things
    In a different light

    All the things I detest
    I will almost like
    I don't want to be tied
    To anyones strings
    I'm carefully trying to steer clear of
    Those things

    But when Im asleep
    I want somebody
    Who will put their arms around me
    And kiss me tenderly
    Though things like this
    Make me sick
    In a case like this
    I`ll get away with it
    every normal man must be tempted, at times,
    to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
    and begin slitting throats.

    Elton John's "Your Song".
    Music by Elton John
    Lyrics by Bernie Taupin

    It's a little bit funny this feeling inside
    I'm not one of those who can easily hide
    I don't have much money but boy if I did
    I'd buy a big house where we both could live

    If I was a sculptor, but then again, no
    Or a man who makes potions in a travelling show
    I know it's not much but it's the best I can do
    My gift is my song and this one's for you

    And you can tell everybody this is your song
    It may be quite simple but now that it's done
    I hope you don't mind
    I hope you don't mind that I put down in words
    How wonderful life is while you're in the world

    I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss
    Well a few of the verses well they've got me quite cross
    But the sun's been quite kind while I wrote this song
    It's for people like you that keep it turned on

    So excuse me forgetting but these things I do
    You see I've forgotten if they're green or they're blue
    Anyway the thing is what I really mean
    Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen

    And you can tell everybody this is your song
    It may be quite simple but now that it's done
    I hope you don't mind
    I hope you don't mind that I put down in words
    How wonderful life is while you're in the world

    I hope you don't mind
    I hope you don't mind that I put down in words
    How wonderful life is while you're in the world
    [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC] Smile! Now!

    Some people are like Slinkys.
    Useless, but still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.

    We are the music makers,and we are the dreamers of the dreams.

    End of line.

    I don't give a crap what anyone outside of my relationship thinks.
    A relationship without sarcasm and banter would be painful.
    Romance and humour must be linked.
    I do not want to "complete" someone or have someone who wants that kind of relationship.
    Sex is a way for me to show affection.


    Me and my old lady
    Lay in bed all day
    And when I say I love her
    Well she rolls the other way
    But really she don't mean it
    Everything she says
    Still if I believe in love
    There's nothing wrong
    There's nothing wrong with my head

    Me and my old lady
    Sit and sip on wine
    And when she says she loves me
    Will I say that love is blind
    But really I don't mean it
    Everything I say
    Still if she believes in love
    There's nothing wrong
    There's nothing wrong with her head

    So what if we're making a scene now
    You know she don't give a shit
    When she's pawin' and grabbin' on me now
    You know I don't mind a bit
    It's all good and we
    Ain't gonna change now
    The world is unaware
    So if you want to go on and stare
    Cause we don't care

    Me and my old lady
    Suck each other dry
    And when in that position
    I'm the luckiest man alive
    Quenching our libidos
    Passing time away
    Now that I believe in love
    There's nothing wrong
    There's nothing wrong with my head

    This isn't relevant to my "type", but to me as I'm a closet hopeless romantic.
    When you find that person and you realize why it didn't, why it couldn't, work out with anyone else.

    I got my smile from the sunshine,
    I got my tears from the rain.
    I learned to dance when I saw a tiger prance,
    And a peacock taught me to be vain.
    A little owl in a tree so high,
    He taught me how to wink my eye.
    I learned to bill and coo from a turtledove,
    And a grizzly bear taught me how to hug.
    But the guy that lived two caves from me,
    He taught me how to love.
