If you can't find the right words to tell that special someone how you feel, say it with music instead. Play one of these romantic songs and they're sure to fall head over (piano) keys for you.

The other day, I was scrolling through my Facebook feed and stumbled upon an article from a famous online magazine. Its tagline was "How to make her fall in love with you." I couldn't resist clicking and was confronted with the usual "just-be-yourself" advice.

If you're like me, you probably like to think of more fun answers to such serious questions. If you also play the piano, you probably already know that there's no faster way to win someone's heart than playing them a beautiful song. I've made a light-hearted list of songs that you can learn to test this out for yourself.
