“I needed a song for this movie that, if a boy that you liked knew every word to, you’d be incredibly impressed, and you’d know he had good taste,” she told EW.

Indeed, Ryan knowing “Stars Are Blind” — and unashamedly singing and dancing to it in public — reinforces what has already been established about his humor, warmth, and, importantly, his non-toxic masculinity. We get to watch Cassie fall under his spell — and follow right along with her.
