Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays! Candy and showing appreciation for other people is basically all the world needs. So instead of my usual link round-up of the week, I decided to come up with a quick list of some of my favorite pop punk Valentine’s Day songs.
This cute ukulele song is a fun little duet. It’s not super cheesy and romantic – it’s real and turns the small gesture of saying “thanks” into something a little more meaningful. It’s good to remember to appreciate the people in ours lives.
Lyric: We know it’s not so bad / Here living the life we have / So hey thanks
The lead singer of this band, Max Bemis, wrote this song for the woman that eventually became his wife. (And now they’re super cute and married with kids). It’s a great mix of juvenile and quirky lyrics.
Lyric: We should make a verbal agreement to only to kiss each other
Runner up: Walk Through Hell (the Daytrotter studio version is really good)
This is just like a classic romantic song – as evidenced as the lyrics below. That’s why it’s not my favorite, it’s still really pretty and sweet but kinda generic.
Lyric: I’d walk through hell for you. / Let it burn right through my shoes. / These soles are useless without you.
The title is evidence alone why this song is great. It’s unconventional Fall Out Boy, which is the best Fall Out Boy. The album title is pretty great too – My Heart Will Always Be The B-Side To My Tongue.
Lyric: Put your hand between / An aching head and an aching world / We’ll make them so jealous / We’ll make them hate us
Although it was written for the lead singer’s mother, it’s still a cute and thoughtful song. I love the idea of doing things for those you care about, to help lighten their load, to show that you appreciate what they’ve done for you.
Lyric: I will make you queen of everything you see, / I’ll put you on the map, / I’ll cure you of disease.
I could barely pick a lyric for this one because they’re all so good and give you that warm and fuzzy pop punk feeling. It’s just about how awesome it is to be together with someone and enjoy their company so infinitely.
Lyric: I wanna chase forever down / With you around
Rest in peace, blink. In between all of their silly and immature songs, they did write some poignant lines. Going Away to College always give me some feelings.
Lyric: This world’s an ugly place, but you’re so beautiful to me
For those of you who are feeling a little alone this Valentine’s Day, this one’s for you. But don’t be too sad! It’s just one day and it’ll be over before you know it. In the meantime, let this song help you out.
Lyric: She makes me feel like it’s raining outside / And when the storm’s gone I’m all torn up inside
Happy Valentine’s Day! Listen with the playlist below.
