Valentine’s Day is here again, and whether your mood is blissful or bitter, we’ve got a playlist for you. Speaking to Alternative Press, members of The Pretty Reckless, Panic! at the Disco and Fall Out Boy reveal their favorite love songs that they wrote with their bands.
Taylor Momsen‘s pick is The Pretty Reckless’ song “You.”
“I don’t know about ‘best,’ but probably the most intimate love song we have written is the song ‘You’ off of our first record Light Me Up,” she says.
For Panic! at the Disco’s best love song, Brendon Urie chooses “Death of a Bachelor,” the title track from the band’s latest album.
“It’s that sentiment of, ‘I’m not going to be a bachelor anymore. I’m yours,” explains Urie. He adds that “there’s always been that one sentimental love song on every album,” except for Panic’s 2005’s debut A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out, which has “anti-love songs.”
As for Fall Out Boy, Pete Wentz would pick “Fourth of July” or the Folie à Deux bonus track “Lullabies.”
“It’s not a love song like a he-and-she love song, more of a love song for my first kid,” Wentz says of “Lullabies.” “But it’s about just the love you can have for somebody.”
Here are a few more musicians picking their band’s best love song:
Red Sun Rising‘s Mike Protich: “‘My Muse’ is a song of ours from the perspective of a loved one watching someone struggle with addiction…a different type of love, but love nonetheless.”
Islander‘s Mikey Carvajal: “‘Cold Speak’ for sure. The chorus says, ‘Say what you mean, but always love.’ It’s about being honest in a gentle way while remembering to listen more than speaking.”
Beartooth‘s Taylor Lumley: “Best love song from our discography is ‘Always Dead,’ because f*** you.”
