Valentine's Day Song: Adam Young is Taylor Swift's not-so-secret admirer
Ahem, sorry, had to have a girl moment. This may come as a surprise to many of you, but Taylor Swift likes to sing songs about boys. We'll wait, while you recover from the shock of that statement.
Sometimes, those boys sing songs about Taylor, too. When Taylor wrote the accusatory "Forever and Always" about Joe Jonas, the JoBros fired back with "Much Better," a song about how Joe's new girlfriend, Camilla Belle, was... you guessed it... much better than Taylor.
This one is way, way sweeter than that.
Taylor was rumored to have penned her song "Enchanted" after meeting Owl City's Adam Young, and now, Young has confirmed those rumors by returning the favor. In the sweetest Valentine's Day gesture ever, Young gave the song an Owl City twist and posted his version along with a note for Taylor on his official website:
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 -- as a sort of 'reply' to the breathtaking song on your current record. This is what I wanted so badly to tell you in person but could never quite put into words:
Everything about you is lovely. You're an immensely charming girl with a beautiful heart and more grace and elegance than I know how to describe. 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.
Are you melting? We're melting. The accompanying song, which you can listen to here, is a tweaked cover of Taylor's "Enchanted." Adam's version includes the lyrics, "I'll spend forever wondering if you knew, oh Taylor, I was enchanted to meet you, too."
Taylor's version goes, "Please don't be in love with someone else. Please don't have somebody waiting on you."
In Adam's reply, he says, "I was never in love with someone else. I never had somebody waiting on me, because you were all of my dreams come true, and I just wish you knew, Taylor I was so in love with you."
Again... Oh. My. God. Cutest. Thing. Ever.
Your move, Swifty. We're thinking a fairy-tale, saccharine sweet courtship, followed by marriage and babies and happily ever after and all that stuff. Gyllenhaal who?
