6 Songs With Slow In The Title:

1. Slow Dancing in a Burning Room by John Mayer

Slow Dancing in a Burning Room

Even though I do not listen to this song all the time, I still enjoy the few times I listen to it since it always makes me feel as though I’m hearing it for the first time.

This song immediately makes it clear that it is a sorrowful and heartbroken tune. There isn’t any hidden message in this song, in my opinion; rather, it just seems to be about two people who are in a relationship and who both sense that it is ending but who aren’t quite ready to call it quits.

I believe that both parties had grown accustomed to and confident in their relationship that being apart scared them. I have the impression that both parties are completely powerless over how their connection is developing, especially the line.

You try to hit me only to harm me, which makes me feel bad because you don’t realize we’re losing.

How could you say it’s nothing to me – darling, you’re the only light I ever saw” is my favorite phrase in the entire song.

That sentence, in my opinion, perfectly captures the emotions associated with a breakup, including how both parties typically place the blame on the other and are first quite resentful of one another. He acknowledges that she is/will always play a significant role in his life even though he is visibly pained by the turnout of things.

2. Slow Show by The National

Although this song may be about an introverted and shy person who finds love, I believe it shows a woman who helps him feel normal, loved, and cared for.

He probably feels ashamed and a little out of place, like an alien in a strange land. Additionally, he yearns to return home to that one person with whom he can be himself and feel confident in doing so.

His one and only source of sanity and normalcy. A life filled with insecurities and doubts about people is likely what he was referring to when he said that he had always wanted this person in his life. Now that he has finally found the person who accepts and understands him, he can finally live the life he has always wanted..

3. Slow It Down by The Lumineers

This song is so powerful. Aptly named, it’s the slowest song on the album and I hope it doesn’t go overlooked because it is certainly one of the best.

It’s about a guy that loves a girl that doesn’t love him anymore. He turned a blind eye to the bad turnout of things. Later in the song, he says the walls close in but with velvet curtains meaning he knows the shows are over.

He loves her but knows it’s not even worth trying to get her back. So like her, he will tell himself that he never looked back. In his head, he is saying come back to bed and relax instead of running away from love. The girl is living a life of “running downhill” and he says only love can dig you out of this. But when it came to love…they weren’t good enough.

4. Slow Hands by Interpol

Interpol - Slow Hands

I think this song has a much darker meaning. I think it’s about a sadistic guy who is still in love with his ex, but suddenly  begins to dislike her for not feeling the same way.

In the first line, he talks about how she doesn’t care about him and how no one cares to see things from his perspective. This puts him in a pitiful mood, not because of how bad he is, but rather because of all the rational and irrational actions he had taken for the sake of his love for her.

At some point, he begins to have odd feelings about her, each time he sees her, he describes it as a feeling of craziness which he doesn’t know if it’s a feeling of love or revenge.

He laments about how she has made him vulnerable at heart, saying his heart is now a wasteland and as a result, he feels empty inside. He doesn’t care about anything except her and thoughts of her cloud his mind.

The second verse is just him reminding her of how good things used to be and that he still feels that way even though he’s gone crazy.

5. Slow and Steady by Of Monsters And Men

Of Monsters And Men - Slow And Steady (Official Lyric Video)

This song is centered on the weight of loneliness; The artist in this song sings about the struggle to overcome your lonely tendencies. The idea of this song is that your shadow will never let you go, or hurt you, and can be a great friend in a time of solace. However, it’s hard to move on when your only peer is your own loving shadow.

You’ll convince yourself that you’re never ready to show your true colors and that no one would ever understand them anyhow. This is a very powerful cycle, kin to powerful emotions which is symbolized by the waterfall.

But regardless of how strong any of your feelings are, even if living this way makes you feel better, you’ll always be moving slow and steady past the monsters in your head.

You’ll never become anything better if you stay cooped up, with the lights out, somehow dancing still with your shadow.

6. Future Starts Slow by The Kills

The Kills - Future Starts Slow (Official Video)

The song is about two people who decide they can’t be together, for several reasons. Maybe someday in the future, they can be, but it won’t be for a while.

So the singer tells the lover, “it’s okay, I’ll let you go for now. date whoever you want, do as you wish, but in the end, don’t forget about me.” The singer does the same, and the “shaking like a dog” line is a reference to empty, passionless pleasure.

The singer accepts this because the want for the other person hurts so much that he/she would rather put those feelings aside for the time being.
