Favorite Love Song

“We were both young, when I first saw you…” There’s the start of the high school Love Story we each want to call ours, but we’ve both already read (or will read) Romeo and Juliet in our freshmen English classes to know that Taylor Swift has no idea what she’s talking about (I mean, they both died for goodness’ sake, no one’s got the time to say “yes” or buy a wedding dress). But for those of us spending Valentine’s Day as a single pringle this year, humming along to John Legend singing “All of You” makes February 14th seem a little less lonely because we totally think he’s singing to us, that we deserve all that love too. Call us romantics, but as high schoolers, every love song on the radio gives us hope that we’ll find true love one day.
