    I'm currently making a mix-tape (CD) for my mrs (how old fashioned of me right?). I've done several in the past and they've always been concept albums. This one I want to make is love/affection/relationship songs that have an electrical theme. I'm looking for songs that mention:
    • electricity
    • lightning
    • power
    • charge
    • anything remotely relating to electricity

    So far I've got a couple. Songs include:
    High Voltage - Electric Six


    Powerful - Majer Lazer


    Energy - Fortunes


    I was hoping that you people might have some more suggestions for me. I've already found a few others, but does anyone know of more?

    Bit cheesy perhaps but Frankie Goes to Hollywood - The Power of Love ?

    Probably may not fit the bill though.

    Gary Numan/Tubeway Army - Are 'Friends' Electric
    The Cult - Dark Energy
    Energy 52 - Cafe Del Mar
    Jake Bugg - Lightning Bolt
    Oasis - The Shock of the Lightning
    Elbow - Charge
    Snap! - The Power
    Iron Maiden - Power Slave

    Someone else's go now :D

    I prefer Huey Lewis and the News - Power of Love. Good idea though.

    Some other good ones I've found are
    • MGMT - Electric Feel
    • Borns - Electric Love

    Lesser good, but still fit the bill
    • Polecats - Make a circuit with me
    • Buzzcocks - love battery
    • Tesla - What you give (no mention of electricity, but... Tesla)

    Thanks for the suggestions. Please keep them coming

    Anathema - Lightning Song

    And what a song it is! In fact, I reckon that introducing Anathema to my Missus is probably what sealed the deal. They are romantic and beautiful and awesome in every way.
