This may not be a specifically asexual archetype, but it resonates with asexual stereotypes which cast aces as eternally childlike. As a parody of this archetype, the lyrics of “Mr. Brightside” snidely invoke the idea of “looking on the bright side” even as they otherwise paint a picture of suffering and certain doom. One of the best uplifting, positive songs to jam too, I mean it’s Jimmy Eat World!
But even at the age of 17, that has yet to be the case. Last October, to mark Asexual Awareness Week, I made a video essay about the songs I had found so far. Artists like Bradford Cox from Deerhunter and Virginia-based indie pop singer-songwriter Dearlie were obvious candidates for my list, because they are two of the only well-known openly asexual musicians.
Will is released from the pressure to have sex when he isn’t sure he wants to. I like you… It’s only sex.” And this time he means it. This acknowledgment of asexual feelings casts Will’s earlier music in a different light.
Way later I found the original version by the Smiths and learnt that the singer Morrissey could actually be asexual himself. MIKA – Lollipop is a super upbeat and happy song about how love always gets you down.

Initially released in a TikTok video on August 29th, 2021, Leith Ross’s “We’ll Never Have Sex” instantly became a hit with more than 1.1 Million likes. The song is an ode to a relationship, a relationship that “was sweetness” and “simple”. It’s about finding someone who loves you for you.

F-R-I-E-N-D-S!!” A more recent song in the pop world and such a perfect song with us aro-ace people!
I’m guessing these would be the opposite of the kinds of examples OP wants though, lol. My partner respects my boundaries, never pressures me, and lets me take my time. She is kind, she is patient, and she is sweetness. Ross’s words sing to my relationship huh token buy with her. A relationship that doesn’t make me feel like I am inadequate. Although my stance on physical intimacy may never change, I know that it is possible to have someone who is perfectly content with just my company and love me regardless.
Enjoy isn’t the right word exactly, maybe appreciate is more accurate, a song called This Is The Way by a band called How to Swim. It expresses a cynical view of relationships that reminds me that being alone isn’t the worst thing possible.

It describes pretty well being in love with someone but not in a sexual way, and dealing with them needing to get that from other people. David Gillmour – Lovers are Deranged – About love/romance, not sex. Breaking up despite still loving each other, because of unspecified differences. It’s rock and roll, but the lyrics have a beautiful poetic beat and rhyme scheme.
