The Most Romantic Songs Ever: Your Picks

Email a Friend
A love song is just a love song, but it takes something special to make it ... romantic.

For the past week, our listeners and guests have offered up their nominations for "the most romantic song ever." Cases were made, stories were told and a few tears were shed. Our final conclusion: If you think it's the most romantic ever, who are we to tell you otherwise?

However, we are going to listen to some of our favorite entries today, including those from a very passionate Smiths fan, a 13-year-old gymnast who loves One Direction, and two radio colleagues, WNYC's Anna Sale and WQXR's Jeff Spurgeon

And if that's not enough for you: We compiled nearly all of your entries into this Spotify playlist. (In case you need to set the mood. You're welcome.)

Plus: John Schaefer's 12 Most Romantic Songs Ever (Maybe). And: live music from Elizabeth & the Catapult.
