“Tallest Girl” by Alesha Dixon 

Alesha Dixon stands at a relatively-tall, albeit not-too-extreme height of 5’7”. As such, the title of this song (“Tallest Girl”) is not meant to be taken literally. Instead what the titular metaphor points to, most simply put, is the feeling of edification the vocalist has achieved via her romantic relationship with the addressee. In other words, this is a love song. And as inspired by the title, the lyrics revolves around a height- and altitude-based motif.
