My Top 5 Favorite Unrequited Love Songs

In Music, Relationships on May 10, 2012 at 6:38 pm


To be honest, I’ve never experienced unrequited love but that hasn’t stopped me from enjoying a good unrequited love song. Maybe it’s the fact that I have experienced love not being reciprocated in the way that I’ve liked it to. Which leads me to share my top 5 favorite “I-love-you-but-you-won’t-love-me-back” songs in descending order for a semi dramatic effect:

5. Deniece Williams- “Silly” Deniece laments in soprano about her imaginary relationship with a man who has no idea she exists.

4.Ginuwine- “Only When You’re Lonely”  Ginuwine is getting used by some girl only when she’s bored with her man. My favorite lyric “My heart got broken, when my heart got opened. Repeatedly you said you needed cheated me.” At least he left her alone in the end.

3. A Perfect Circle- “3 Libras” I love, love, love this song. “Difficult not to feel a little bit disappointed…passed over..”

2. Coldplay- “Shiver” I was surprised to find that a lot of people had never heard this song. Listen to it. It’s awesome.

1. Radiohead- “Creep” This song is #1 hands down! When Thom sings “I’m a creep…I’m a weirdo…what the hell am I doing here? I don’t belong here..” I feel sad for him to this day.

Feel free to add to my list. I’m always looking for new music.


  1. Ahhh, Creep. Love that song.

  2. Well I’m not one to hijack a list of love songs, but I’m surprised Only Exception by Paramour didn’t make the cut.

    • I didn’t really consider it an unrequited love song but then I looked up the lyrics just now and it’s worthy of being on the list. Good choice.

      I should’ve added Zero 7 “If I Can’t Have You” too. Maybe it should be a Top 10 List. Here’s the link in case you’ve never heard it.
