Musical Monday: Frostbite Week

HI! My name is Amanda Smith. Lynn Rush wrote about me in one of her novels called, Frostbite. She asked if I was interested in hosting her blog for a week, and I ‘bout fell over I was so excited.

I told her she was due for a teenager’s viewpoint on her blog. And since music is what she talks about on Mondays, I picked out a sweet song.


You Belong with Me, by Taylor Swift.

So, why’d I pick this song, you ask?

Well, these lyrics pretty much tell it the story:

“But she wears short skirts, I wear t-shirts, She’s cheer captain, and I’m on the bleachers.”

Yeah, when Zach—I mean THE Zach freaking Landry—started talking to me in detention one day, then asked me out (well, it was more of a bribe, more details on that later this week—maybe) I fell into the whole No-Way-He-Could-Like-A-Girl-Like-Me attitude.


Captain of the football team, track star, and all around hottie liking me? A plain-Jane, dish-water blonde, wardrobe challenged girl like me?

Well, and the fact that I can shoot ice from my fingers and lift a car over my head didn’t help things either.

So, I guess that’s why I like this song.

**What songs are you guys listening to? I’ll go check them out on iTunes**

    I’ll say that I really like Taylor Swift, mostly because it’s all my daughter listens to. But I’ll admit that I’ve caught myself humming this song. Humming, mind you. Not singing. Oh, no…

    Nice to meet you, Amanda!

  6. Amanda says:

    HI, Kat–Nice to meet you. Yep, Taylor is AWESOME. I like your blog, Kat. Long Road to Heaven, sounds awesome. Lynn told me she’s read some and loved it!

    Good to hear from you Amanda. You’ll surely “young” things up a bit. Lynn is such an old fuddy-duddy – NOT! Anyway, I think you will provide an interesting perspective. Enjoy the week.
