Ah just commented on another thread on the same theme so I risk repeating myself, but my absolute favourite ED song is "Skin And Bones" by Fear of Music, there's some really triggering lines in it.

Also a lot of Bright Eyes songs that aren't specifically about ED's, but can be interpreted that way enough to soundtrack a disorder. 

I'm a music journalist so its a major love of mine too xxx

Music journalist sounds like a wonderful career lol. I’m interested in knowing more about that!

I will give that song a listen too! Music is part of my day to day life. Probably put in over 30 hours a week just listening to music lol

Hunger by Florence and The Machine. She briefly talks about her ED growing up, and then goes onto other issues like anxiety, drug addiction etc.
Overall the song means ‘Hunger’ in it’s many forms.

Give it a listen and it’ll make more sense
Let everything happen to you. Beauty and terror. Just keep going.
No feeling is final.

- Rainer Maria Rilke

I loved this documentary, and I love the fact that she was an artist first and it seems like it's the rest of the world...not her... that defined her by her ED. R.I.P.

I just discovered this artist, Nicole Dollanganger. I first heard "Dog Teeth" (tw for abuse) which shocked me into listening to the lyrics, and after looking up more of her music I found "Please Eat"

It is 100% from the perspective of someone watching their loved one starve so it's kind of unique. A lot of ED songs focus on the emotions of the disordered person, not the caretaker. But this song is remarkably sad and had me in tears with how heart breaking it is.

A verse:
"It's not your body that I love, but it's the shell you're inside of
And you're killing it, you're killing the only piece of you I can touch
It's not your body that I need, but that's what sleeps next to me
And you're killing it, you're killing it, you're killing it
Please eat"
