Reader Chloe has put together the perfect playlist for Skye Tanberry… read on and see if you agree with her choices!

Chloe says:
My first song for Skye is Enchanted by none other than… Taylor Swift! I'd like to thank the reader who commented on Summer's playlist feature for this, though the comment was anonymous so I can't say thanks properly! The lyrics are, 'When I saw your face all I can say is that I was enchanted to meet you… The night is sparkling, don't you let it go; I'm wonderstruck, blushing all the way home…' This song reminds me of Skye and Finch so much… it's kind of a theme when it comes to Skye! It just perfectly reflects the way she and Finch are together, especially the bit about 'playful conversation'!

The next song is We'll Be The Stars by Sabrina Carpenter. The song shows that hopes and dreams can be achieved - and that's true! The first snippet, 'We are young, we are gold…' reminds me of how Skye didn't believe in ghosts… and then a few weeks later she is chasing one up! Madness! More lyrics: 'All our fears become our hopes, planned out every locked window… we can reach the constellations, just make all our dreams, we are breaking out, no we're never going to turn to dust, all we really need is us, don't be scared to close your eyes, no we're never going to die, we'll be the stars…' This, to me, shows Skye's personal beliefs and hopes for the world. It might not all work out perfectly, but her beliefs will stick with her.

My final song is Wonderland by Taylor Swift again. The song tells the story of Skye and Finch, from fairytale to reality. If you do listen to this song, ignore the last part if listening from Skye's point of view, as that part is not true to her story… keep that in mind! My lyrics are: 'You held on tight to me as nothing is as it seems, spinning out of control, didn't they tell us don't rush into things, haven't you heard what becomes of curious minds, didn't it all seem new and exciting, I felt your arms twisting around me… we found wonderland and you and I got lost in it, and we pretended it could last forever; we found wonderland, you and I got lost in it, life was never worse but never better…' The first part explains the the thrill and excitement of it all, until Skye realises it is not as easy as it looks. That's when the We'll Be The Stars attitude kicks in, and she understands that no matter what, whether a boy is beside her or not, she is special.

Love it! Do YOU agree with Chloe's choices for Skye? What would YOU add? COMMENT BELOW to have your say!


  1. Thanks and may I just mention Enchanted is from Speak Now; We'll Be The Stars will be on Sabrina's album Eyes Open and finally Wonderland is on 1989 the DELUXE version! Xxx

  2. She 'put' together a playlist. You said "out". I understand, the keys are so close together. Also, in the Taylor Swift quote "I was enchanted to meet you" you didn't capitalise the i. Just pointing it out like the annoying grammar faerie I am!

    1. All fixed, Ms Whatsername… much obliged! xxx

  3. Well Blue, you won fair and square . . .

  4. You're welcome :)
