about teardrops on my guitar
Teardrops On My Guitar is the second single by country music artist Taylor Swift. This work is from Taylor's self titled album, Taylor Swift, following her debut single Tim McGraw. The song is about a girl who is secretly in love with a boy named Drew, but Drew is interested in another girl. The song talks about the heartbreak of liking someone who is so close but is out of one's reach. Swift also states that it's about the conflicting feelings of loving someone and wanting them to love you back and wanting them to be happy. In a behind-the-scenes video, Swift reveals that the song was written about a classmate.
The song debuted at number 93 on the Billboard Hot 100 in March 2007.
Country radio stations along with GAC and CMT play a remixed version of this song, with "I laugh 'cause it's so damn funny" changed to "I laugh 'cause it's just so funny." The instrumentation is different between the single and album versions of the song, as well.
A new remix of the song, with a drumloop added and the banjo removed, was released to Top 40 and Adult Contemporary radio in October 2007 and began charting in both formats soon after. The song has reached a new peak on the Pop 100 at number 11. The song re-entered the Hot 100 at 44. The song ties Carrie Underwood's hit song Before He Cheats as the longest charting song before cracking into the top 15 on the Billboard Hot 100 at 33 weeks. Another new remix, this time a pop version, has been released to radio stations in February 2008. This version has a synthesizer bass line, new drums, and the vocals are set a little further back in the mix.
The song is about a boy named Drew that Taylor Swift was friends with in high school. He never realized how much she liked him. Taylor told Seventeen Magazine (in the June issue) details about the true story behind her song:
"He was a guy who I met freshman year of high school. He had the most beautiful eyes and this amazing smile. He was so cute and nice, and he talked to me every day… about his girlfriend! Which is like the screeching brake sound. But I had it bad for him. And I just kept thinking, Why am I so invisible to him? Why does he have to have a girlfriend? I never told him that I liked him, but I did write a song with his name on it, so I think he knows now."
Swift also had stated the event after the song became popular:
"Actually, he [Drew] showed up in my driveway a couple of months ago, and it was like in the movies where at the end the guy shows up in your driveway, and you have this awesome kiss, except it's three years too late. I'm like, Why didn't you do this years ago?!? He was a stranger by then, so I felt like I didn't know him anymore."
