Gothic Love Songs for a Spooky Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day!

We all know music is the true language of love, so I decided to put together a few of my favorite love songs of the gothic persuasion to celebrate this day of amore!

Note: I realize these aren't all truly "goth" songs - there is some goth, some industrial, some electronic, some EBM, some synthpop and so on that appear on this list, but I decided to name this post "gothic love songs" for the overall emotional impact of the songs (and also "gothic-industrial-electro-EBM-synthpop-etc. love songs" just doesn't sound as nice as a title).

No matter the genre or sub-genre of music, there are numerous types of tunes sure to please anyone - there are playful love songs amidst ballads of love lost, classics and newer tracks, and even a few sensual numbers to sexify your day (and night)! 

Whatever you are doing this Valentine's Day, I hope you enjoy your day and take a moment to realize you are loved!

The simply stunning Siouxsie Sioux - "The Last Beat of My Heart"

One of the most beautiful songs ever - "Lullaby" by Assemblage 23

Zombies need love too! - "Corpses (A Zombie Love Song)" by God Module

Such a sensual song! - "Touch" by Wolfsheim

Somber yet dance-y love song - "Beloved" by VNV Nation

My only love, eternally - "The One" by Magenta

Without you, day is nothing but a waste of light - "Without You" by Seabound

October Rust is a sexy album in its entirety, but if I had to pick just one song it would be this one - "Love You to Death" by Type O Negative

I have to include this one...it's just a classic - "Lovesong" by The Cure

And finally this cover of Queen's "Get Down Make Love" by Nine Inch Nails always gets me feeling feisty and frisky!


  1. Happy Valentine's Day! :) I liked "The One" by Magenta. Somehow looking at her picture, I knew I was going to like the song. Thanks for introducing me to some new music!

  4. I came on this as I was looking for some info about Gothic Love Songs to put on my blog at http://emporiumgothica.blogspot.com/

    I just love it when people make things Goth by adding the word "Spooky."

    Also your song list is awesome.
