We share just some of the most romantic songs we've heard in time for Happy Hearts month. Share your own tracks and give our February playlist a listen!

Marla Miniano, Editor In Chief "Don't Go Home Without Me" by Lights has been on my playlist for months, but "Such Great Heights" by The Postal Service is an all-time favorite. —Marla, Editor In Chief
Steph Yapnayon, Art Director "All of the Stars" and "Thinking Out Loud" by Ed Sheeran, "Yellow" by Coldplay, and "Just the Way You Are" by Bruno Mars —Steph, Art Director
Angel Constantino Aquino, Managing Editor "At the Beginning" from the movie Anastasia, "1,2,3,4" by Plain White T's, and "Lucky" by Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat —Angel, Managing Editor
Dyan Zarzuela, Entertainment and Features Editor There are so many romantic songs in the world, but right now, I really like the soundtrack of The Theory of Everything. It's whimsical and engaging and reminds me of all the bittersweet moments in the movie. —Dyan, Entertainment and Features Editor
Kaye Robles, Editorial Assistant My grandparents are in the habit of singing and dancing to standards together when they're in a loving mood so those are the songs that come to mind when I think of romance. My favorites are "(I Love You) For Sentimental Reasons" and "That's All" by Nat King Cole. —Kaye, Editorial Assistant
Macy Alcaraz, Web Managing Editor

Sondre Lerche's "After All" is the perfect love song that talks about not knowing if it's magic at the beginning of a relationship and somehow figuring out that it was all along. I just about died when my brother sang this to his wife at their wedding as a surprise before their first dance. Another fave is "Words and Music" also by the same artist. My favorite lines: "You're a sad little tune by yourself/So lovely I want to sing along/If there's one thing I can tell/When we get together, we're a song" —Macy, Web Managing Editor

Erin Torrejon, Web Fashion and Beauty Assistant The most romantic songs are those that talk about the kind of love they feel and have with a really beautiful melody to go along with it. I like it more than just those songs that directly say "I love you." I like Tom Odell's "Grow Old with Me" and The xx's "Heart Skipped A Beat." —Erin, Web Fashion and Beauty Assistant
Ayessa De La Pena, Web Editorial Assistant I really love Ingrid Michaelson's "You and I" and Spiral Staircase's "More Today Than Yesterday." I feel giddy and full of love every time I hear these songs. :) —Ayessa, Web Editorial Assistant
