Taylor Swift's New Song, "Goodbye, Spotify"

This is Spotify. It's a commercial music streaming service.


And this is Taylor Swift. She's a country-turned-pop singer.


This week, Swift's record company pulled her songs from the online music service. And today, a Facebook friend made this joke:



Not sure why, but that really struck me as amusing. And then I decided to write the song myself. And here it is. Why, you ask? Because sometimes, a silly idea can be the difference between a bad day and a good day. And now, this is a good day. Thanks, Nick, for the idea.


Goodbye, Spotify

You're full of yourself thinking you are dreamy
Always online and totally streamy
Millions of songs at your fingertips
But you won't hear a single word from my lips

You spun me around and think you know me
Well here's a note, you can blow me
I'm out of here and good to go
Taking my tunes and hitting the road

Goooooooodbye, Spotify
Oooh Oooh Oooh
Goooooooodbye, Spotify
Oooh Oooh Oooh

Your World Wide Web is a web of deceit
I trusted you but you're just a cheat
Promised me you'd make me rich
But you stole my tunes, made me your bitch

Newsflash, I'm a mega-star
Number One hits burning up the charts
Now I'll leave you with this one last thought
Think again, this "bitch" just can't be bought 

Goooooooodbye, Spotify
Oooh Oooh Oooh
Goooooooodbye, Spotify
Oooh Oooh Oooh

Goooooooodbye, Spotify
Oooh Oooh Oooh
Goooooooodbye, Spotify
Oooh Oooh Oooh
