After writing a post about songs that INFJs relate to, I decided to start talking to some other personality types about their most relatable songs. I joined an INFP group and asked for their input, and I also went through Quara threads where INFPs listed songs they think embody what it’s like to be an INFP.

There were far too many song recommendations to talk about in this post, so I’ve compiled the songs on a Spotify playlist so you can listen to them all. One thing I noticed that set INFP song recommendations apart from what I heard from INFJs is that many said they enjoy instrumental songs. I didn’t include any on this post, but I did want to mention that and they are included on the playlist. Enjoy!

12 Songs That INFPs Will Relate To

1. “3 Libras” by A Perfect Circle


Two INFPs recommended this song. According to the artists, this song is about the people who are rare, precious, empathic, and willing to be vulnerable in order to connect. It’s also about the “cold and oblivious” people who disappoint others by not understanding or caring.

2. “Alive” by Sia


Sia’s music received more than one recommendation, but “Alive” was the only song mentioned specifically. It’s a beautiful song that talks about finding solace inside your own mind and surviving against all odds.

3. “Creep” by Radiohead


This song comes recommended by three INFPs. On the surface, it might seem like a creepy, stalker-ish song. But when you listen more deeply it is (in the artists’ words) a song about “recognizing what you are.” The singer struggles with asserting themselves, then thinks about how that makes them seem weird even though they had no ill intentions.

4. “Dreams” by Fleetwood Mac


INFPs care deeply about staying true to their authentic selves, and they care about others doing the same. Even if that means splitting up a relationship, it is right to live in a way that makes you feel free and genuine. Because of this, many find solidarity with this song.

5. “Dosed” by Red Hot Chili Peppers


Several INFPs said they liked this song, and one said it was their favorite from Red Hot Chili Peppers. It’s about heartbreak after the loss of a deep relationship and finding peace even though the past hurts.

6. “Exist for Love” by AURORA


One INFP recommended this song specifically, and two more said they loved the artist. This is a beautiful love song, and it mirrors the way INFP types say “I love you.” It’s a deep, romantic, “soulmate” love that honors the other person and promises to have their back.

7. “Help I’m Alive” by Metric


It’s not easy to have a soft, tender heart in this world and INFPs know that as well (or perhaps better) than anyone. NPR described “Help I’m Alive” as an “anxious yet optimistic” song, and it captures the feeling of learning to exist in a society that doesn’t always fit your personality or preferences. Other recommended songs from Metric include “Dreams So Real” and “Empty.”

8.“Leif Erikson” by Interpol


I hadn’t listened to any Interpol music until writing this post. INFPs recommended, “Evil,” “Lights,” and “Untitled” along with the one I’ve included on this list. This one captured my attention first because of the reference to Norse explorer Leif Erikson, then for the interesting way it talks about two people exploring and discovering themselves and each other.

9. “my future” by Billie Eilish


This song was recommended by two INFPs. One INFP also recommended “Everything I Wanted” by the same artist. “my future” is about embracing a hopeful future and moving into a happier place, choosing to care for yourself because you’re someone who matters. INFPs enjoy anticipating and dreaming about their futures and feel a strong connection to this song.

10. “On The Turning Away” by Pink Floyd


Pink Floyd received several recommendations, even earning the distinction of favorite artist for some INFPs. I chose this song for my post because INFPs care so much about fighting for those who are downtrodden and vulnerable. They’re not going to turn away from such things, and they encourage others to care as well. Other Pink Floyd songs that INFPs recommended include “Comfortably Numb,” “Welcome to the Machine,” and “Wish You Were Here.”

11. “Saturn” by Sleeping at Last


This touching song is about losing someone you love who shaped who you are today and taught truths that will shine on even after they’re gone. The artist has said that it is “perhaps written from Galileo’s children perspective” and that his goal in writing the song was to make it beautiful.

12. “True Colors” by Cyndi Lauper


INFPs are deeply in-touch with their own authentic feelings. This familiarity with their own souls often gives them unique insight into other people as well. They also have the ability to help people find peace with themselves and show their true colors to the world.
