Singled Out: 35th and Taylor's Night Terrors

35th and Taylor

35th and Taylor singer Anna Taylor tells us about the song "Night Terrors" from their recent album release "I Know You're Trouble." You may recognize Anna as former contestant on The Voice. Here is the story:

The song "Night Terrors" was a last minute addition to our album, 'I Know You're Trouble.' Two weeks before recording, I sat down at the piano and stumbled across a chord structure I really liked. To me, the chord structure sounded dark and mysterious, and while playing it, I came up with the line, "There's a ghost under my bed." As with most of my songs, the song grew from this simple sentence.

I continued on with the theme of ghosts and being scared of the unknown expressed through childhood fears, specifically night terrors. Writing this song took only 15 minutes for me. The words came really quickly, and it just seemed to flow.

I didn't really have to think too hard on this one, which is definitely not the case with some of the other songs on the album. I think why this song was so quick and easy for me to write was because the words really meant something to me.

"Night Terrors" is about lying awake at night in fear that you are going to lose someone, and at the time of writing this song, I knew someone I cared about was moving away.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself here and learn more about the album right here!
