I feel bad for New Jersey sometimes. People seem to associate the word “Jersey” with syringe-littered beaches, interstate highways, government corruption, and the assumption that natives call it “Nooo Joisey.”
Well, maybe Jersey has the corruption… But Jersey is also breeding ground for great musicians! [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Bon Jovi[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Bruce Springsteen[/lastfm] both grew up there! While playing at the New Jersey Prudential Center last night, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Taylor Swift[/lastfm] honored the Joisey boys by covering Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ On a Prayer” and Springsteen’s “Dancing In the Dark.”
Unfortunately, Taylor Swift’s fans were REALLY into the “Livin’ on a Prayer” cover and kind of mask Taylor’s voice with their less… appealing rendition. Still, it’s great to see the crowd so excited:
Taylor Swift never seems to slow down, (haha ‘swift’), and will be releasing a new perfume in the near future! It’s called ‘Wonderstruck,’ which is a reference to her song “Enchanted” that uses the term: “I’m wonderstruck, blushing all the way home, I’ll spend forever wondering if you knew, I was enchanted to meet you.”
But if you back up one more step, the song “Enchanted” is based on Taylor first meeting the lead singer of [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Owl City[/lastfm], Adam Young. Apparently she was instantly infatuated with the man, and used the word ‘wonderstruck’ in her song since he himself tended to use the word.
Awkward internet flirting ensued, with Adam covering the song and releasing an (strangely public) statement of love:
…Everything about you is beautiful. You’re an immensely charming girl with a wonderful heart and more grace and elegance than I know how to describe. You are a true princess from a dreamy fairy tale; a modern Cinderella. I’m terribly sorry it’s taken me such a long time to reply but I figured Valentine’s Day was the perfect time to write this note to you and simply say… I was enchanted to meet you too.Love,
Wowwww I’m kind of gagging on the sickly sweetness of all this. But seriously, very cute. Too bad that they emailed back and forth for a few months and then she flitted away and into Jake Gyllenhaal’s manly arms. But that’s another story.
