If you think One Direction’s new song “Perfect” sounds a lot like Taylor Swift’s “Style,” you’re not alone. While the Twittersphere continues to blow up over this comparison, a new mash-up video shows how perfectly they go together.
With lyrics like, “If you’re looking for someone to write your breakup songs about,” and, “I might never be your knight in shining armor,” some fans believed Swift, Harry Styles’ ex, was the subject of “Perfect.” While the jury’s still out on that front, it turns out the song goes rather well with “Style,” which in turn is rumored to be about the One Directioner — something Swift herself teased in the past.
Listen to the mash-up below.
Styles, who wrote “Perfect” with bandmate Louis Tomlinson, told the Australian radio show Smallzy’s Surgery that it is “a spontaneous love song.” He said, “You write about your own experiences…It doesn’t always have to be an exact story.”
