Team Picks: Most Romantic Albums

Team Picks: Most Romantic Albums
People of SofarFebruary 11, 2021

Like most things lately, Valentine’s Day is a little different this year. Luckily, love is always worth celebrating whether we’re near or far. Turn on the romance and tune into the Sofar team’s picks for most romantic albums.

Vicky Christina Barcelona Motion Picture Soundtrack

Putting this soundtrack on as the backtrack to any date is probably the sexiest thing you could do. Sure, you can’t go to Barcelona, but you can get in a muy caliente mood with this music. Pretty sure my partner played it on one of our first dates sooo I’m speaking from experience ;)

—Sophie, NYC

LISTEN

Blonde - Frank Ocean

Nothing says romance like pressing play on Frank Ocean. Turn it on, pour the wine, and let the feelings flood out.

—Mara, Jacksonville

LISTEN

I’m Still In Love With You - Al Green

“Simply beautiful” is just one of the loveliest songs I've ever heard—so it's really all about that song for me, and everything on either side is just a bonus

—Kalyn, NYC

LISTEN

Anything Celine Dion

Growing up Celine Dion had this power and feeling in her voice and her “Falling Into You” album was what I assumed love would be like as an adult! It was so romantic!

—Lindsay, Boston

LISTEN

Way Of Life - Jimmy Durante

I first heard him when I watched Sleepless in Seattle (which is my fave rom com) and his voice and songs in the “Way Of Life” album get me every time, as a hopeless romantic!

—Lindsay, Boston

LISTEN

Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway - Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway

Whether you’re celebrating Valentine's with your loved one, friends, or locked up on your own, there’s no better album to stick on than this one in my opinion. It’s the joining of two of the greatest voices of all time. This mix of covers and originals will surely set the mood right, and guide you through all the emotions. Put the needle in the groove, open a bottle of red and crank it right up!

—Adam, London

LISTEN

Frank Sinatra - Songs for Swingin' Lovers

I guess I'm just an old-fashioned kinda girl. This is a timeless classic. I also don't typically think of "romantic" so much as slow, deep, meaningful love-songs but as happy, catchy, and fun songs. That just feels more like authentic romance to me.

—Joanna, Boston

LISTEN

Grae - Moses Sumney

This album from Sofar alum Moses Sumney is sticky sweet and full of slow, emotional songs that absolutely tear at my heartstrings.
