“You should take it as a compliment
that I got drunk and made fun of the way you talk
you should think about the consequence
of your magnetic field being a little too strong
and I got a boyfriend, he’s older than us
he’s in the club doing, I don’t know what
you’re so cool, it makes me hate you so much
(I hate you so much)

Whisky on ice, Sunset and Vine
you’ve ruined my life, by not being mine

You’re so gorgeous
I can’t say anything to your face
‘cause look at your face
and I’m so furious
at you for making me feel this way
but what can I say?
You’re gorgeous

You should take it as a compliment
that I’m talking to everyone here but you
(but you, but you)
and you should think about the consequence
of you touching my hand in a darkened room
(dark room, dark room)
if you got a girlfriend, I’m jealous of her
but if you’re single that’s honestly worse
‘cause you’re so gorgeous it actually hurts
(honey, it hurts)

Ocean blue eyes looking in mine
I feel like I might sink and drown and die

You’re so gorgeous
I can’t say anything to your face
‘cause look at your face
and I’m so furious
at you for making me feel this way
but what can I say?
You’re gorgeous

You make me so happy it turns back to sad
there’s nothing I hate more than what I can’t have
you are so gorgeous it makes me so mad
you make me so happy it turns back to sad
there’s nothing I hate more than what I can’t have
guess I’ll just stumble on home to my cats
alone, unless you wanna come along, oh…

You’re so gorgeous
I can’t say anything to your face
‘cause look at your face
and I’m so furious
at you for making me feel this way
but what can I say?
You’re gorgeous

You make me so happy it turns back to sad
there’s nothing I hate more than what I can’t have
you are so gorgeous it makes me so mad
you’re gorgeous
you make me so happy it turns back to sad
there’s nothing I hate more than what I can’t have
you are so gorgeous it makes me so mad
you’re gorgeous”.

Citazioni.

Gorgeous is a song recorded by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift for her sixth studio album Reputation. It was released on October 20, 2017, as a promotional single from the album. The song reached top ten in Australia and Canada and top twenty in United Kingdom, United States, Ireland and Scotland. After Swift held a secret listening party on October 13, 2017 where she played her sixth studio album Reputation for 100 fans from all around the world, she announced the release of a song titled “Gorgeous” through her Instagram account on October 19th. It included a small preview of the track, featuring “a baby voice saying ‘gorgeous’ over an electro-pop soundbed”, as described by Billboard. It was then released the following day as a promotional single. On the same day, a lyric video for the song was premiered. The song is about her boyfriend Joe Alwyn.
Swift co-wrote “Gorgeous” with its producers Max Martin and Shellback. It has been described as a “radio-friendly pop” song. Lyrically, the song depicts “the pursuit of a maddening love interest”, whom Swift describes as “gorgeous”. Hugh McIntyre of Forbes characterized the production of the song as “simultaneously a basic 808 drum and an attempt at something that pushes electro-pop into a more interesting territory than Top 40 is used to”. Maeve McDermott of USA Today likened the chorus of the song to the sound of Katy Perry. According to Elle, the man mentioned in the song is the British actor Joe Alwyn, who is Swift’s current boyfriend. The song is composed in the key of C major with a tempo of 92 beats per minute, with Swift’s vocals spanning from G3 to C5.
Maeve McDermott of USA Today called it “further proof of their queen’s pop domination” for Taylor Swift fans, and “a promising omen that the old Taylor may not be dead just yet” for “listeners who have so far been skeptical of Swift’s new direction”. Glamour stated that it was evidence that Swift was “single-handedly saving pop music in 2017”, calling it “fizzy” and “delightful”, owing to its “slightly left of centre style”. In a positive review for Variety, Chris William called the song a “more conventional Taylor Swift song” that, “provides some of the conventional pleasures that only a pop song about falling deeply in crush can”. Jon Blistein of Rolling Stone thought the song is “the yang to the vindictive, angry yin of “Look What You Made Me Do“, as Swift sings ‘wistfully’ about a man over ‘gentle, radio-friendly pop'”. Clayton Purdom from The A.V. Club called it “her first good single in forever”, stating that the song “clears the low bar set by its two predecessors [‘Look What You Made Me Do‘ and ‘…Ready for It?‘]” and stands easily alongside the best work on 1989. Entertainment Weekly’s Eric Renner Brown gave it a B+, citing that “she’s back on top” with “Gorgeous“. Richard S. He of Billboard said the song’s verses are “Swift at her pettiest”, realizing she was playing a character and has “never been wittier”. Spencer Kornhaber of The Atlantic called it “on the surface the most 1989-like of the three Reputation songs so far” and stating that “the song is very catchy and refreshingly straightforward”. In a mixed review, Frank Guan of Vulture stated that the song “isn’t terrible”, but it is “yet another song from Reputation that doesn’t live up to its title”.
In the United States, the song debuted at number thirteen on the Billboard Hot 100, which blends streaming, airplay and sales data, as, powered by its official audio clip, it also bows at No. 16 on the Streaming Songs chart with 16.9 million U.S. streams. (While not a radio focus single, it additionally drew 3.6 million in all-format airplay audience in the tracking week). It also became her 14th number one song on the Digital Songs chart with opening sales of 68,000 copies with the chart-topping start of “Gorgeous” on Digital Song Sales, Swift ties Rihanna for the most No. 1s in the list’s history: 14 each. Swift also extends her record for the most No. 1 debuts to 13″.
