Description :

The generic use of the phrase 'romantic music' applies to music usually associated with evoking a soft or dreamy atmosphere or mood.There are an abundance of romantic and sentimental songs that convey happiness, sadness, romantic love and sibling love. When setting music to text more stressful words or words that imply love and passion may be accompanied by chords of higher intensity (those which sound more passionate or intense). This intensifies the emotional meaning of the words for the singer and the listener.
