It isn’t too often that I come across a song that I absolutely love or agree with but when I first saw Taylor Swift’s music video Love Story I didn’t think that there would ever be a song I could love more. I am what I am… a Cinderella wannabe and this song is my hopeful love story.
The high school girl, the ballroom dancing, the banjos, the violins, the Victorian vintage dresses and suits,the garden, the castle, the white horse, the old lanterns, the wide open fields, a prince, a princess, a romeo, a juliet, and of course the sunset… I just love every second of it. I love how this video portrays this song because even though it seems like it’s far from reality there really is some truth in it. That truth is that true love waits. Relationships have obstacles and problems but they can overcome them. People can overcome them and “true loves” well, I believe that they can overcome anything.
People think that her video is like a fantasy, a dream, or a love story that will never come true, but to me it’s a love story that I hope to one day have. One that captures the underlying message of this song… the message that everyone will have their love story in some way or another at some point in time.
In my first blog, I said that cinderellas and prince charmings are out there and now in my last blog (at least for this sequence) I can say that Romeo and Juliet are out there. It’s not just a Cinderella Story… It’s a Love Story.
