Some examples of what I’m looking for is Shame by Stabbing Westward or the bridge in Lonely Day by System Of A Down. (“And if you go, I wanna go with you / And if you die, I wanna die with you / Take your hand and walk away”) Songs about complete devotion to a person, loving them so much you would do whatever they asked, not having an identity without this person, they are all you have, you would die for them, etc.

I’m not looking for stalker-ish songs like Dangerous by Big Data & Joywave or Mx. Sinister by I DONT KNOW HOW BUT THEY FOUND ME and I’m not a fan of rap, pop and most indie music (indie rock is acceptable).

Thank you :)

Are you familiar with Glassjaw?

No actually, should I give them a listen?


BlyStreetMusic t1_ja68owo wrote

The albums 'worship and tribute' and 'everything you ever wanted to know about silence' are both cover to cover what you're looking for in my opinion. Pure emotion.

That's nuts! Was gonna answer this initially, but realized it didn't quite fit the brief for the reasons op pointed out lol


user26748568 OP t1_ja6atxy wrote

I actually do like this song but it’s a little different to what I’m looking for. Love Hate Love is more about intense want for control and ownership of a person rather than absolute devotion and possibly submission to a person which is what I’m looking for. Thank you for the recommendation though, it’s much appreciated

"Ultimate Devotion" Strung Out Most their songs are about love and obsession. It's on my list of favorite breakup music.

Plus anything by NIN. Specifically "Something I can Never Have"

Harry Nilsson does heartache and heart break so well. You feel his pain every time.

I heard Shame by Stabbing Westward for the first time a few months ago and have listened to it dozens of times since. Nice to see it mentioned somewhere, I didn’t know if it was a well known song or not.


user26748568 OP t1_ja6b13p wrote

It’s such a well-written and underrated song. I’m so glad someone else can share my appreciation for it

I love how it sounds so rushed and desperate. I usually don’t like indie or pop music but this is definitely an exception. Thank you for the recommendation

You might POSSIBLY like Breezeblocks by alt-J “Please don’t go, please don’t go / I love you so, I love you so / please break my heart / please don’t go / I’ll eat you whole / I love you so / I love you I love you so”


user26748568 OP t1_ja6olie wrote

The lyrics are exactly what I’m looking for but the intensity is lacking, if you know what I mean. If the genre were different possibly? But thank you for the suggestion, I had forgot about that song until now. It was a nice refresher :)


FirstPotatoKing t1_ja7k0r6 wrote

What about something by Barns Courtney? Like maybe Never Let You Down, You and I, or Supernatural?

Maybe try Sometime Around Midnight by The Airborne Toxic Event

Edit to say on second thought this one might be more towards the stalkier end of the spectrum than what you are looking for
