One of the principal subgenres of MusicalTheater song, and very common in the Jazz Standards and traditional pop repertoire. A torch song is a sentimental ballad about lost or unrequited love, typically performed by a woman: the singer is still "holding a torch" for someone who (they think) doesn't or can't love them back.

The genre is most closely associated with the Great American Songbook era of the 1920s to 1950s or so, but newer musicals often still have songs that fit this category.

TheChanteuse is often seen performing one of these. A performer who specializes in these songs is called a "torch singer".
