The Most Romantic Classical Pieces of Music?

February is such an interesting month--a furry prognosticator either predicts an early spring (as he did today) or condemns us to a long harsh winter, and Valentine's Day means romance is in the air.  We've decided to do a little investigative journalism in keeping with the month's romantic theme.  We want to know what piece of classical music always sets you in a romantic mood.  Is it a special piano concerto? A fine adagio? A piece from a treasured ballet? Or a more eclectic selection?

And who knows, it just might show up in a concert sometime soon, too (though we won't promise).
After a quick glance at several on-line lists of the best romantic compositions, here're a few frequent contenders for the top spot.  Click to give each of them a listen:

This list could go on for days, the choices are so bountiful. But instead, why don't you share your favorite with us? Vote below.
