Sooooo apparently I missed the boat on this one.
I'd like to introduce you to my new obsession
Some of you are probably wondering NEW OBSESSION?
I mean, don't get me wrong, I loved when a new song of hers came out and would belt it
in the shower anytime I heard them.
But, it wasn't to this point until lunchtime Tuesday when a co-worker offered to share her TSwift playlist with me via Grooveshark
For those of you that aren't familiar with Grooveshark, let's just say, it's the best thing that has ever happened to me. If you like a song, enter in the name, add it to your playlist, listen as much as you want. BONUS: you don't have to hear songs you don't like and you don't run out of skips!
Sorry Pandora, but the second I found Grooveshark, we had to part ways.
Back to my story.
I ended up creating my own playlist so I could just to add the songs that I already knew or had heard once before. I particularly fell in love with Enchanted and Ours.
I pride myself on being the go-to-girl for celebrity gossip/news and I remembered hearing that one of her songs was about meeting someone and feeling so in awe that she went home and started writing the song immediately.
So, naturally, when I found Enchanted, I had to know the entire story.
Just in case there is someone else out there that hasn't heard the entire story, I thought it was my duty, as the new #1 fan, to share it with you.
When the album came out Taylor said that Enchanted:
"That song is sort of about pining away for if you're ever going to see someone again, walking away too early," she told me. "It was about this guy that I met in New York City, and I had talked to him on email before, but I had never met him. And meeting him, it was just this overwhelming feeling of: I really hope that you're not inlove with somebody. And the whole entire way home, I just remember the glittery New York City buildings passing by and then just sitting there thinking, am I ever gonna talk to this person again? It was that feeling of pining away for a romance that may never even happen, but all you have is this hope that it could, and the fear that it never will."
Have a listen
Taylor also includes the lyrics in the song. All of the lyrics are lowercased, except for a few letters that spell the name of the person the song was about.
The letters for this song spell out ADAM-- Adam Young from Owl City. You might remember him from the '09 song Fireflies.
He was, of course, flattered and responded with this:
"I'll be the first to admit I'm a rather shy boy and since music is the most eloquent form of communication I can muster, I decided to record something for you--a sort of a 'reply' to the breathtaking song on your current record. You are a true princess from a dreamy fairy tale, and above all, I just want you to know...I was enchanted to meet you too."
A cover of Enchanted-- with a little additional lyrics throughout.
If I've lost you-- my favorite part is at the end when he says "I was never in love with someone else. I never had somebody waiting on me. 'Cause you were all of my dreams come true. And I just wish you knew, Taylor I was so in love with you.”
Sorry, but is that not just the sweetest little love story you have ever heard?
I feel like my life will never be the same.
Just in case you are now obsessed, here is an interview where Adam spoke so sweetly of Taylor, I just had to share.
& that, my friends, is my new obsession
Here is my playlist if you want to fall in love also :)
