I’m in danger of falling into a complete Shake It Off obsession; goodness knows how many times I’ve listened to Officer Davis now.
(the world has listened 21,112,926 times since 16 Jan 2015):-
(Let’s not forget Taylor herself, with an astonishing 494,957,036 views since 18 Aug 2014) (and a *really* good, very-USA, video):-
Officer Davis (who turns out to be 49) explained that he knew all the words to Shake It Off thanks to carrying his 8-year-old daughter & her friends in the car, and I now completely understand. I’m quite sure that the whole world was full last Autumn with 8-year-old girls singing along in the car to Shake It Off. The damn thing is verbal catnip.
