Fandom Picks — Love Songs

@KayMarieXW's Picks —
"Prettiest Eyes" by The Beautiful South
This has always been one of my all time favourite love songs and gives me hope that true love can last a lifetime.

"Angels" by Robbie Williams
I fell in love with Robbie when he was 17 and I was a little bit younger! This song feels like part of my history because I heard it so much. I love it because it is about unconditional love in all forms, but also because it's about how it feels to be loved, which is quite rare when so many songs are about how it feels to love someone else.

@wonderwoundedh's Picks —
"Bella Donna" by The Avett Brothers

"Sugar Mouse" by Oh, Atoms

@vRSoup's Picks —
"Your Song" by Kate Walsh

"Find A Way" by Safety Suit

"The Only Exception" by Paramore
"Tangled Up In You" by Staind
My fav love song as of late. The words are dreamy, and what I'm about to say probably shows how big of a dreamer I am, but I would really like to see Caius singing this song in a fic. *looks around* What? It could happen. It'd be hard to pull off and make it believable, but it could be AH with a young Caius at his ... sweetest. o.O? There's even this line: "You're the only thing that I like about me."

"More Than Words" by Extreme
Some people might say this is completely anti-Valentine's Day since the day is all about telling the one you love that you love them, but I think saying "I love you" can be overrated. Actions speak louder than words, and pertaining to writing, it is often said, "Show us. Don't tell us."

Many thanks to the lovely @KayMarieXW for submitting song recs.

If you don't see your style music or favorite songs, make sure you submit a song rec for our next theme: Breakup Songs. You could be helping your fellow fandom writers and readers write their next chapter or a new fic, and the only way this segment can be helpful is by submitting songs. Fill out the Fav Picks form, or tweet the song title and video link to @TheLUVNV with #LyricalLibations as a trend topic. Don't be shy! Every genre is welcome.

We'll be back with more Libations March 15th.

Please let us know if you found a song for your chapter or were inspired by one in this post.
We'd love to check out the fic if you can send us a link.

You can find us and all the songs featured in Lyrical Libations on YouTube.
