Don’t you dream impossible dreams? In Taylor Talk: The Taylor Swift Podcast Episode 42, our team discusses “Starlight,” a song about Bobby and Ethel Kennedy.
In Episode 42:

-This episode is being released on Taylor’s birthday, so HAPPY BDAY TAY!!
-Find out which host thinks “Gangnam Style” is the “worst piece of garbage” ever!
-”This episode of Taylor Talk is brought to you by: Squirrel Pajamas”
-An in-depth discussion of “Starlight” includes:
-”Starlight” is “Kennedy Fan Fiction”
-How “Starlight” gives insight into the era in which it takes place – ie. using words and phrases of the era, shows what life was like in that time period, etc.
-Where the song references a famous Bobby Kennedy quote
-How the song reminds us of an old school Taylor song going all the way back to her first album, Taylor Swift
-The music of “Starlight” has a very Peter Pan feel to it
-I (Adam) point out that my prediction (read here) that there would be a Kennedy-themed song on Red proved true!
-Will this song be on the Red Tour and how will it be portrayed? — Should Taylor bring out Ethel as a special guest? LOL
