InstigatorGIRL’s Top Picks for You and Your Star-Crossed Lover.
Some songs fitting those who are star crossed lovers
Have you ever met that one person whom you thought you were meant to spend the rest of your life with but no matter how much you both tried or loved each other it just could never happen for you. Some of the most popular characters have been included in this heart-breaking category; ie: Romeo and Juliet, Tristan and Isolde, Clark Kent and Lana Lang, Buffy and Angel. I’ve put together a list of song fitting to those and their unachievable romance. Let’s begin:
#1 If I Never Knew You by Hal Ketchum & Shelby Lynn
Beautiful song. This song first premiered on the soundtrack of Disney’s Pocahontas, originally sung by Jon Secada and Shanice but later when Disney came out with an album with the country version of their songs, this gem showcased and really stood out to many. The melody and lyrics in this song really tug at the heart strings and really is a great pick for star crossed lovers everywhere.
#2 How Can I Not Love You by Joy Enriquez
Now this song is definitely not for everyone but is still on my list. From Anna and the King this heartbreaking song expresses what anyone would feel when trying to move on from the one they love.
#3 I Love You, Goodbye By Celine Dion
Now I’m not a big Celine Dion fan but this song is beautiful and makes me cry. I feel this song is fitting to this category especially her lyrics towards the end:
“Leaving someone when you love someone
Is the hardest thing to do
When you love someone as much as I love you
Oh I don't wanna leave you
Baby it tears me up inside
But I'll never be the one you're needing
I love you, goodbye”
#4 White Flag by Dido
Again, another artist I’m not a huge fan of but this song is definitely one, if not, her best. David Boreanaz was actually her “love interest” in the music video of this song. But this song holds true when she sings the words:
“And when we meet
Which I'm sure we will
All that was there
Will be there still
I'll let it pass
And hold my tongue
And you will think
That I've moved on....”
#5 Save Tonight by Eagle Eye Cherry.
This song is one of my personal favorite songs. The guy’s voice with the melody is blended so well together.
#6 Star Crossed by Scary Kids Scaring Kids
This song is all about being star crossed lovers.
#7 We Belong Together By Gavin DeGraw
From the soundtrack to Tristan and Isolde this song is the theme song for the movie. Very cool song and fitting.
#8 Private Emotions By Ricky Martin & Meja
Another one of my personal favorite songs, beautiful song and this song just screams star crossed lovers to me. The worst kind too, the kind where they love each other and don’t even know it.
