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

PRIMO.

First. Pixie dust and paper cuts – these are the first things Wendy knew about Peter Pan. Aurora first met Prince Philip when she was sixteen. Learning how to ride a bike was also a first while I was growing up, but you are probably the first of too many. The first collection of dust and stars; maybe Luna will try to ask, who was your first? I might answer and tell her that it was you.

The first of too many stars in the sky. You are the first of too many fallen leaves during fall – and you will be the most anticipated snowflake as winter comes. A dark path that you can’t see without any light, hence, you were once the moon and there are the stars that shine so bright at night. Are we too early? Or we just really want to be ahead of time? Even in a glimpse, I would like to see the two of us connect as if we can reach the sky. There are other parts of the heavens you have never saw and other oceans you haven’t laid your feet onto – but the constellations will always wait for you. Close your eyes, love, close your eyes. Start counting backward: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Count backward until you see the twinkling lights that will guide you to the right path. To the right satellite; to the right person. A first.

There are many firsts – first love, first heartbreak, first sport you played, the first thing you do in the morning, the first thing you remember about the person in front of you. There are a lot. It’s actually up to us how we will consider something as a first. So, Primo, you are already a first of too many.
