Girl blew my mind because the lyrics basically confirmed my theory that TS & CH were secretly still dating. (Jenny, if you’re reading this, I’m still grateful for your crazy-smart brain!!)
The song sorta flew under the radar since it was sung by John Newman and was never on an album. But CH wrote it, produced it, etc etc, it’s his baby through and through.
Here’s a sneak peek of those lyrics:
Lowkey, you won’t tell none of your friends about me
You won’t tell them I occupy your dreams and your thoughts
Look at what we have started
I ain’t seen you or been with you for weeks
But I see online that you’ve begun to be
A good girl and take trips with your boyfriend
Being attentive, continue to pretend
You’ve hidden my name on your phone so you can
Call me to tell me you’ve been going through hell
Left him alone and you booked in a hotel
Released as a digital download on July 8, 2016, this song is still listed under CH’s wikipedia with a TBA album. (Not TBD, as in to be determined, but TBA as in “to be announced” which implies it has a home, just hasn’t been announced yet).
When Tay released Gorgeous I, along with a lot of people, were pretty underwhelmed with her lyrics. She literally says
You make me so happy it turns back to sad….it makes me so mad.
I love Taylor’s writing and so this was surprising to hear, to say the least.
BUT, I also know she’s smart as a fox (and knows places to hide). Gorgeous feels like a piece of unfinished work, like it could be part of something bigger.
(Sidenote: on October 20th — the day Gorgeous was released — CH tweeted that he was feeling extra blessed that day)
And in comes Olé. When you play these two side by side, they totally complement each other. Listen to those smooth island beats in the background. When you get the just right even the bridges line up.
She mentions the blue ocean in her song, he has the blue ocean in his video. Just sayin’.
I’m not talented enough to align them musically, but even when you clumsily play them one on top of the other, it’s not painful to the ear. A groove could happen. These two songs could become one. TBA PEOPLE. TBA.
Is it all a coincidence? Or, could it be, they are both fakin’ it?….
