Nothing like fluttering butterflies in your tummy and that kilig feeling you get when your favorite love song plays on the radio. Doesn't it just make you want to close your eyes and slowly let the corners of your mouth curl into the sweetest smile? Ahh, love!

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

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song

By: CJ Reyno

Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?

Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.

You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.

As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”

I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
