My Asexual Playlist

Songs that I Can Relate to that Aren't About Butts

So I have gathered a playlist of songs that may not intentionally be about asexuality, but definitely gives off vibes and they're songs that I genuinely like to sing too that aren't overly sexual. No particular number, I don't think I'll be numbering them as I'm actively looking for similar songs as I'm writing this, however! Let's get into the songs!

"Love Myself" by Hailee Steinfeld

This song is about self-love and although it implies some sexual aspects it's all for herself. Although it is also seen as a breakup song, as an asexual, I see this as saying, "Hey, I love myself and I don't need anybody else to love me." I really like this song, it has a good upbeat feel to it, definitely something you can have a little boogie to! Hailey herself definitely deserves more recognition, she was recently an opening act for Katy Perry's Witness tour and has a lot of other uplifting songs such as "Most Girls." She's worth checking out.

"Take a Hint" by Victoria Justice and Liz Gillies

Here is a song for those who grew up watching Nickelodeon. Victoria playing 'Tori' and Liz playing "Jade" sing this song to a bunch of boys who are hitting on them at their favourite restaurant—which, I can relate too. Maybe not at a restaurant that's kinda weird. But definitely, if I'm trying to chill with my girlfriends with a few cocktails. This song is the sassier version of telling a guy or girl or anyone who is hitting on you that you're not interested, as an asexual/aromantic. 

"The Middle" by Jimmy Eat World

One of the best uplifting, positive songs to jam too, I mean it's Jimmy Eat World! "Sometimes it's gonna take some time, but everything will be just fine, it'll be alright!" This definitely sends the message of not being alone, that there are people like you, not a lovey-dovey song or protesting against the idea of sex/relationships but more a song about community. 

"Here" by Alessia Cara

This one's for all those (like myself) who have friends who want to go out and drink, get drunk, listening to the worst music that's way too loud and it sets off my anxiety in all honestly. Why am I "here?" Personally, I'd rather just sit at home, watch Harry Potter and Disney movies, or maybe go do something creative, like write or draw. Alessia truly hits home with this tune.

"For Me" by Dearlie

Dearlie's amazing song For Me, is about asexuality and is on her experiences as an asexual. She sings about the struggles of always hearing the phrases "you're too young" and "you haven't found the right one" but that she finally met herself, raising awareness to self-love and how important it is. She continues by stating that everyone loves a little different and that it's all a part of being human. 

"We Don't Have To Take Our Clothes Off" by Jermaine Stewart

A classic, anything from the 80s is pretty much golden. The music, the lyrics. I'm always down to dance to this song and keep my clothes on. Side note, cherry wine? Yes please? Also Jermaine's vocals are on point here. P.S. Stop trying to take your clothes off around me when I'm just here to have a good time? 

"Love Love Love" by Of Monsters And Men

Slowing it down now (am I a DJ?). A personal favourite of mine that cuts deep into every wound I've ever had, I love torturing myself honestly. Of Monsters and Men know exactly what strings to pull in this hauntingly beautiful but heart breaking and all too relatable song, "Love Love Love." Which in a nutshell is about someone loving you but in a way that you can't return. I love this band, they have strange and unusual songs that somehow make sense? May I also recommend "Wolves Without Teeth" and "Little Talks"?

"I Feel Like Dancin'" by All Time Low

A personally favourite of my 14-year-old self, All Time Low have been a major influence for my growing up and they introduced me to the pop-punk genre of music and were one of the first bands I sort of obsessed over. "I Feel Like Dancin'" is the perfect party song, I just wanna dance and not be pushing weirdos away from me! Also the video is pretty funny.

"FRIENDS" by Marshmello and Anne-Marie

"Want me to spell it out for you? F-R-I-E-N-D-S!!" A more recent song in the pop world and such a perfect song with us aro-ace people! I don't want a relationship with you, let's just keep things platonic! Friends are important too, just don't "try it on" with me, please.

So there we go! 8 of the coolest asexual anthems that I love to jam out too! Do you listen to these songs? Let me know what you think about them, hope you've enjoyed this little playlist and I hope to make more of these in the future!
