Taylor Swift - Gorgeous


Taylor Swift wrote "Gorgeous" with Swedish producers Max Martin and Shellback for her sixth studio album, Reputation. The song was also produced by Martin and Shellback.[1] It was engineered at MXM Studios in Los Angeles and Stockholm, Sweden. The track was mixed by Serban Ghenea at MixStar Studios in Virginia Beach, Virginia; and mastered by Randy Merrill at Sterling Sound Studios in New York.[1] On October 19, 2017, Swift gave a preview of the song in an Instagram post which featured a baby voice saying the word "gorgeous" over an electropop production.[2][3] The baby's voice featured on the song is that of James Reynolds, a daughter of actors Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds.[4] Swift decided to feature the baby's voice after she played an acoustic guitar demo to Lively and Reynolds and then their daughter kept saying the word "gorgeous".[5] On October 20, "Gorgeous" was released for digital download as a promotional single.[6] It was the third song issued preceding the release of Reputation, following the singles "Look What You Made Me Do" and "...Ready for It?".[7]




Taylor Swift - Gorgeous



Lyrically, the song depicts Swift getting infatuated with a new love interest.[18] "Gorgeous" begins with a baby's voice saying the word "gorgeous", sampling the voice of James Reynolds, daughter of Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds.[19] In the track, Swift portrays a promiscuous aspect in an attempt to get the attention of a prospective lover.[16] She confesses that she is prompted to cheat on her boyfriend in order to get along with this new man, through the lines, "I got a boyfriend, he's older than us / He's in the club doing I don't know what."[20] She gets melodramatic, singing "You've ruined my life by not being mine," which is followed by a triangle ding. In the refrain, Swift restates that her love interest is so "gorgeous" that she "can't say anything to [his] face", leaving her dumbstruck.[20] Compared to her previous songs about unrequited love or hopeless romance, "Gorgeous" sees Swift assuming a more assertive position: "I'm so furious / At you for making me feel this way."[16] She no longer gets overtly heartbroken should the relationship with this person not come true: "Guess I'll just stumble on home to my cats... alone."[20]


So, was Taylor lusting over Joe when she was still with Calvin? Was the Hiddleswift relationship just to make Joe jealous? Does Tom Hiddleston frequent clubs, doing things Taylor Swift doesn't know about? There are so. Many. Questions.


You're so gorgeousI can't say anything to your face (to your face)'Cause look at your face (look at your face)And I'm so furiousAt you for making me feel this way (feel this way)But what can I say?You're gorgeous


You make me so happy it turns back to sad (yeah)There's nothing I hate more than what I can't haveAnd you are so gorgeous it makes me so madYou make me so happy it turns back to sad (yeah)There's nothing I hate more than what I can't haveGuess I'll just stumble on home to my cats (ugh)AloneUnless you wanna come along?


You make me so happy it turns back to sad (yeah)There's nothing I hate more than what I can't haveAnd you are so gorgeous it makes me so madYou're gorgeousYou make me so happy it turns back to sad (turns back to sad)There's nothing I hate more than what I can't have (what I can't have)You are so gorgeous it makes me so madYou're gorgeous


And in the chorus, we hear why Taylor Swift is so attracted to this guy. Apparently, he's "gorgeous" and makes her so nervous that she "can't say anything to your face." Why? "'Cause look at your face." How good looking he is all the reason she needs to be "furious" at him "for making me feel this way." There's really not much more to say than that. She thinks he's "gorgeous."


In the lyrics of the bridge of "Gorgeous," Taylor indulges in a few paradoxes. This fellow makes her "so happy it turns back to sad," and he's "so gorgeous it makes me so sad." For her, there's nothing worse than "what [she] can't have." And then in what may be the most unique line of the song, Taylor mumbles to herself that she'll "just stumble on home to my cats / Alone / Unless you wanna come along"--a reference to fans' obsession with her cats that consistently show up in her social media. This fellow is essentially driving her to become a "crazy cat lady" because she's so obsessed with having what she can't have right now.

Taylor Swift released "Gorgeous," her new single from Reputation, on Friday. As you might expect, the song is all about someone who is gorgeous -- and most people are thinking that's Joe Alwyn, Swift's current boyfriend and a pleasant-looking British man. 041b061a72
