Tonight I did a few more.
Justin Bieber – As Long As You Love Me
Back in my day, that was the name of a Backstreet Boys song. Damn kids…

Taylor Swift – We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together
I don’t know what I was doing with this one.

Ellie Goulding – Lights
This one is sad.
Maybe a bit paranoid.
