[UPDATE 6/13/10: Many commenters have made great suggestions for additional songs, and so I've added a few to the list! Thanks, everyone!]
Over a few years of blogging, I've collected a few geeky love songs to play on romantic evenings. Here's one that's new to me: "UP, UP, DOWN, DOWN" by Kirby Krackle, a geek rock band from Seattle. It's about a young man who has a crush on a girl who frequents his store. Very touching (via Comics Alliance)
"Comic Shop" by the Australian musical comedy group Tripod imagines an impossible scenario: a hot girl walked into the comic book shop. And it was obvious that she was not unfamiliar with its contents. (via Topless Robot)
"Gonna Make You Happy" is another great Tripod song about a man, the woman he loves, and his quest to get to a save point.
This Felicia Day song is a promotional video for the The Guild, the online sitcom about a group of World of Warcraft players.
Parry Gripp's "The Girl at the Video Game Story" stars gamer/model Olivia Munn. It's a tale of unrequited love at the local video game store. (via Geekologie)
My personal favorite is the soft, instrumental ballad "Geek Like Me" by The Wonderstrucks. It always makes me think of my wife. UPDATE 6/13/10: Thanks to all our readers for these great additions!
Composed and performed by musician Sam Hart, "Mario Cart Love Song" is a soft, gentle ballad professing love for Princess Peach on the great roadway of love. -- Thanks, Andi!
"Geeks in Love" by Lemon Demon (warning: sound) talks about how people respond to seeing two awkward geeks in love with each other. Heh. Somehow, it's socially unacceptable for two people like that to be happy. Video animated by Andrew Kepple. -- Thanks, Eric Berlin!
"Yuri the Only One" by LeetStreet Boys (a webcomic and a band) takes an otaku emphasis with lines like "like Gundam Seed, you're my destiny." And gratuitous, uh, bounciness. For authenticity, of course. -- Thanks, Ashy!
"Code Monkey" by Jonathan Coulton is about a shy programmer in love with the a beautiful woman at the office. He's a simple ape -- he loves Fritos, Tab, Mountain Dew...and you. This is more nerd than geek, but it's a great song and worth your attention. -- Thanks, Joe!
"Talk Nerdy to Me" by Lorraine Cink is, well, everything a geek could ever ask for. A hot girl looks directly into your eyes and wants to talk about tauntauns and Spider-Man. -- Thanks, Sean!
