This song finds Taylor Swift singing about the beginning of a potential relationship. Though she hasn't stated her love for him directly, she thinks "he knows."
I think he knows When we get all alone I'll make myself at home And he'll want me to stay
During the chorus, Swift talks about skipping down Nashville's 16th Avenue, referring to how her new love gives her a giddy feeling reminiscent of her younger years. (16th Avenue is a street in Nashville's Music Row where the teenage Swift started her career).
He got my heartbeat Skipping down 16th Avenue
Swift teased the lyric in the music video for "You Need To Calm Down" during a scene when the camera shows the entrance of the neighborhood with a street sign for "16th Avenue."
Swift co-wrote and co-produced the song with regular collaborator Jack Antonoff. The upbeat track is a new sound for Swift, verging on Prince-esque pop-funk.
David Bowie's "Space Oddity" tells the story of an astronaut who cuts off communication and floats into space. The BBC used it extensively in their coverage of the 1969 moon landing - an odd choice considering the lyrics.
