Without a Special Valentine is not a lonely hearts day for Taylor Swift, she may not have a special someone this year, but she certainly has a romantic admirer. Adam Young, an electro-pop musician from the band Owl City with the ubiquitous hit "Fireflies," posted a gushing online message and song about the country star after figuring out that her song, "Enchanted," is about likely about him.
The electro-pop musician writes that he decoded Swift's song by stringing together the upper-case letters in the printed lyrics on her album and realizing they spell out "A-D-A-M." Young writes on his band blog that he's so tremendously honored that Taylor would write such an elegant song and thereby offer a gracious nod in his direction. "Needless to say, I was lost for words and utterly smitten. I couldn't stop smiling." he added.
He reciprocates the gesture with his recorded interpretation of Swift's "Enchanted," writing:
"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. ... 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."
Swift and Young have a friendship that dates back at least to September 2009 when Swift sent him a Tweet before one of his shows in New York. "If I was in town, I'd be there! Front row, super-fan style," she wrote at the time.
A week later, Swift was spotted in the VIP balcony of Young's sold-out Bowery Ballroom show, dancing and singing along to his 90-minute set. Backstage afterwards, they snapped a photo together and Young Tweeted, "Wow. Tonight was magical."
