How to use "Torch song" in context?

When I hear the term "torch song," my mind immediately goes to Viking era ships decked out with flickering flames from their burning torches. I can imagine a group of bearded men, their eyes bright with adventure and excitement, singing as they worked together to bring their ship to port. The famous torch songs of Olafur Arnalds, such as "Sigur Rós," are melancholy and passionate, conveying a depth of emotion that is typically absent in most popular music. In comparison, the music of Enya, with its lush and ethereal arrangement, is often seen as more subtle and reserved.
