Laughing man wearing headphones

One Reddit user recently asked the r/GayMen community for “any gay (MLM) songs, possibly about romance,” and commenters had more than a dozen tracks to suggest.

Some users, meanwhile, even dropped entire Spotify playlists in the comments. Two of the comments, for example, suggested Spotify user Jason D. Clinton’s “Gay Men Singing About Men” playlist, which currently boasts 210 songs with a total runtime of about 11 hours.

Another user, r/alejandrogermanotta, offered up his “BubblePopBottomPop” playlist, saying it’s “about 4 hours of dudes singing either about dudes or navigating self-love as a gay man.”

Now, onto the specific song recommendations. Enjoy the tunes!

“King of My Heart” by Sub-Radio

”Look Away” by Eli Lieb & Steve Grand

“A beautiful and sad breakup song,” said u/faireymagik2.
