New Taylor Swift song, 'Today Was a Fairytale': Listen here

The Tay-Tay-squared love affair that bloomed on the set of the upcoming Valentines Day may have withered on the vine, but Taylor Swift still has her heart—or at least a new song, and her first big-screen role—in the everyone-with-a-SAG-card-get-in-the-pool romantic comedy, due in theaters February 12.

The track “Today Was a Fairytale” is available today on iTunes; listen to a minute-and-a-half clip below:

Not a big departure here for T-Swift; in fact, the lyrics—”you were the prince/I used to be the damsel in distress” and “I wore a dress/you wore a dark grey t-shirt”—are mighty reminiscent of two previous hits: “Love Story” and “You Belong with Me,” respectively. The t-shirt’s just on the other foot, so to speak.

However! She is a 20-year-old self-made millionairess with gold statuettes lining her kitchen cupboards like cans of Dinty Moore stew, and we are broke, bitter journalists, so what do we know? The song sounds Taylor-made (oh, the wit!) for her fans, and we’re just happy she’s still sweet, neat, and 98359 times more age-appropriate than Noah Cyrus. But please do tell us your take in the comments section below.
