Did You Know?

Interesting facts and trivia about Dress. By Songfacts®.

Possibly the raunchiest song Taylor Swift has recorded, this intimate, steamy anthem finds her expressing her lust for an unnamed guy that she is close to: I don't want you as a best friend I only bought this dress so you could take it off Fans who attended one of Taylor's exclusive secret sessions reported that the Pop Princess' parents were extremely uncomfortable while listening to this track.

So who is the "best friend" that Taylor is wanting to get intimate with? When Reputation was released, many Swifties were initially convinced it was her pal Ed Sheeran that the songstress had been getting down to business with sexually. Our secret moments in a crowded room They got no idea about me and you There is an indentation in the shape of you Made your mark on me, a golden tattoo Taylor appears to be referencing Ed's hit tune "Shape Of You" and the "golden tattoo" could be one of his many inkings. However another lyric likely lets the English singer off the hook. Flashback, when you met me Your buzz cut and my hair bleached Speaking to Time Out Singapore, Ed said of the song, "I don't think it is [about me]. If you read into it... it's not. She mentions someone with a buzz cut haircut and I've never had a buzz cut."

Speaking during her iHeart Reputation Album Release Party, Taylor said: "This song was one of those things where almost every line is something that I came up with like a year before, and then when I was writing the song, I just cherry picked, and I was like, 'Like that, like that, like that, like that.' And I was really proud of the hook of this because it sounds like a pickup line, and yet it is a love song about deep and tender feelings."
