Oliver and Felicity are an epic couple. And epic couples have songs written about them, do they not? Here lies a playlist that will remind you of Olicity’s epicness (some of which were dug up from the depths of my angstiest teenage years), enjoy!
by: Amber Run
Notable lyrics: “and I found love where it wasn’t supposed to be / right in front of me, talk some sense to me”
Oliver, Felicity was right there all along! “I Found” reminds me of season 3 Oliver, going on a first date with the woman he knew he loved.
by: Arctic Monkeys
Notable lyrics: “do I wanna know / if this feeling flows both ways”
The sexy-rocker vibes to this song reminds me, quite frankly, of Olicity’s sexiness. Yes, Oliver and Felicity are very sweet and romantic but they are also known for some of the most iconic sex scenes. *Chef kiss*
by: Lana Del Rey
Notable lyrics: “kiss me hard before you go”
Lana Del Rey’s hauntingly beautiful song “Summertime Sadness” reminds me of Felicity’s perspective of Oliver’s hero journey. It’s like “I love you, do your thing, be a hero, but it still sucks.” It’s also a fitting song title considering that all of the Arrow season finales are in the summer.
by: Fleetwood Mac
Notable lyrics: “and I love you I love you I love you / like never before”
This classic is all about wanting beautiful things for the person you love, and how you’ll do anything for them. So basically, Olicity.
by: Sleeping At Last
Notable lyrics: “nothing prepared me for / what the privilege of being yours would do”
It’s season 4 happy Oliver (before the sad breakup)! He’s like, “woah, is this what being in love feels like? Why haven’t I been doing this all along?!” Silly, silly, boy.
by: Lady Gaga (A Star Is Born soundtrack)
Notable lyrics: “and I don’t wanna give somebody else the better part of me / I would rather wait for you”
Felicity is still wearing her ring 20 years later. There’s really nothing left to say.
by: Lord Huron
Notable lyrics: “I had all and then most of you / some and now none of you”
Ah, that disastrous season 4 breakup. Dark times in the Olicity fandom. Listen to this song and cry, my friends.
by: Elvis Presley (Ingrid Michaelson cover)
Notable lyrics: “I can’t help falling in love with you”
Remember when Oliver whipped out soufflés and a ring so fast without any warning? Was he trying to kill the Olicity fandom? I think he was. But he can’t help it.
by: Bonnie Tyler (Sleeping At Last cover)
Notable lyrics: “and I need you now tonight / and I need you more than ever”
I know what you’re thinking. “Are you really so extra that you’re putting ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’ on this playlist?” And the answer is yes, yes I am. It’s an understatement to say that Oliver goes through some really dark things, but he can get through anything with Felicity by his side.
by: The Civil Wars
Notable lyrics: “if the right one came / if the right one came along”
Season 2 Olicity, pretty much. With Diggle shipping it so hard.
by: Josh Garrels
Notable lyrics: “stumble out into the light / and raise my fist up to fight / then I catch your eyes / so full of love”
If this song doesn’t basically sum up Oliver Queen then I don’t know what does.
by: The Cinematic Orchestra
Notable lyrics: “and I built a home / for you / for me”
Saving Star City. That’s what it’s all about.
by: Adam Agin
Notable lyrics: “I swear I’ll work to make it better / so please don’t leave quite yet”
Sorry I keep mentioning the breakup. But alas, I have masochistic tendencies.
by: Brendan James
Notable lyrics: “you would look me in the eye, so afraid to ask me, “why?”/ but I knew you were the star that shines for me / and I had already planned to set us free”
It’s Olicity getting back together in 5×20, remember? The sewer talk in all of its angsty glory.
by: The Proclaimers (Sleeping At Last cover)
Notable lyrics: “and if I grow old, well, I know I’m gonna be / I’m gonna be the man who’s growin’ old with you”
“You will always be the love of my life.” Oliver Queen said that to Felicity Smoak.
by: Camila Cabello
Notable lyrics: “it’s you babe”
This is more of an upbeat rendition of season 3 Felicity, wanting to move on but knowing “it’s you.”
by: Alabama Shakes
Notable lyrics: “and it took a long time/ to find you/ but I finally found you”
When Olicity finally got married after 6 seasons.
Notable lyrics: “you took my soul and wiped it clean / our love was made for movie screens”
Season 5 Olicity personified!
by: Etta James
Notable lyrics: “at last my love has come along / my lonely days are over and life is like a song”
Finally, their first dance song.
