Despite her plethora of breakup songs, Taylor Swift won't let failed love hold her back. The pop star recently spent a discreet night with British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran before the Brit Awards last month, according to E! News. Sheeran reportedly spent most of the night on February 19th at Swift's hotel. When he left, Sheeran used a car that Swift had used earlier that day.

The two also reportedly dated "briefly" last spring. Sheeran appeared on Swift's latest album, Red, contributing to "Everything Has Changed." Sheeran also had "Red" tattooed on his arm last year, which fed rumors of a possible relationship. The rumors seem unlikely to die down quickly: Sheeran and Swift are touring together from March 13th to September 21st.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
