In this business, there are two subjects that will boost your page views like nothing else: Game of Thrones and Taylor Swift. One of them is a massive, multi-million-dollar enterprise filled with violence and betrayal, and the other airs on HBO. And, outside the legions of fans who eat up everything she puts out, no take on her ever stays solid for long. She was a precocious teenager, and the ultimate embodiment of white privilege.
And yet, unlike Madonna or Bowie, Swift got through the first 11 years of her career without any major reinventions. For , she embraced feminism and threw away the last vestiges of her Nashville sound, but those were basically just aesthetic changes.
Swift — or at least the version of Swift on her albums — has remained largely the same person since her debut: a thin-skinned, bighearted obsessive, with a penchant for huge romantic moments. Listen to too many and you might ache again at the nagging feeling that those stories of yours have all been a bit uneventful and drab by comparison.
What sort of real life can stand up against fantasies like these? But I do recommend sampling as many of these songs as you see fit. She may not have the raw vocal power of some of her competitors, but what she lacks in Mariah-level range she makes up for in versatility and personality.
A carpetbagger from the Pennsylvania suburbs, she became an expert code-switcher early in her career and never looked back. And when it comes to writing instantly memorable pop songs, her only peers are a few anonymous Swedish guys, none of whom perform their own stuff. I count at least ten stone-cold classics in her discography. Others might see more. The verses are vacuous, the insults have no teeth, and just when the whole thing seems to be leading up to a gigantic redemptive chorus, suddenly pop!
Other Swift songs have clunkier rhymes, or worse production values, but none of them have such a gaping hole at the center. Otherwise, this is a by-the-numbers holiday cover, complete with sleigh bells in the mix.
Points for ambition, but sometimes you just want to hear the old standards the way you remember them. Worst of all is this duet with po-faced Ulsterman Gary Lightbody, which feels about ten minutes long. But when they misfire, the results can be brutal. The lyric here indulges the worst habits of late-period Swift — an eagerness to play the victim, a slight lack of resemblance to anything approaching real life — attached to a schoolyard-chant melody that will never leave your head, even when you may want it to.
Though her backing vocals are very pleasant, this is percent a Tim McGraw song. Olympic team to greatness. They won 36 gold medals! Would she come out? Would she come out and reveal she had once dated Karlie Kloss?
Cut to the fateful day, and the news was … Swift, who is a pop singer, was releasing a new pop song. The only silver lining? On brand! With only one take to get it right, she did not let the people of Haiti down. The crowd, not being idiots, responds with an enthusiastic yes. A spirited vocal performance in the outro saves the song from feeling like homework.
Or was she a white woman playing the victim to demonize an outspoken black man? Most of them work. He produced her early demos, and she fought for him to sit behind the controls on her debut; the two would work together on every Swift album until , when his role was largely taken over by Max Martin and Shellback. Listen to the screams during the chorus and try to guess where this one was recorded.
If you had forgotten that this song came out in , she keeps the line about Tae Bo. Max Martin and Shellback pack the track with all sorts of amusing audio doodads, but the melody is a little too horizontal to stick, and the lyrics have a touch of first draft about them. Perhaps too much — you get the sense it might work better as a Bleachers song. As if to reassure nervous country fans, the fiddle goes absolutely nuts. Swift often plays guessing games about which parts of her songs are autobiographical, but this one is explicitly a fantasy.
The slangy Trump jabs to say nothing of the slight West Indian accents in the chorus may read as a few years behind the times, but when it comes to straight pop stars penning gay-rights theme songs , you could do a lot worse. Inspiration works in mysterious ways. Despite the extravagant title, the date described here is charmingly low-key: The dude wears a T-shirt, and his grand gestures are showing up on time and being nice.
The production and vocals are appropriately restrained — sometimes, simplicity works. Turns out, adolescent self-mythologizing is the same no matter where you are — no surprise that Swift could pull it off despite leaving school after sophomore year. The high point comes when she contemplates forgiving a hater, then bursts into an incredulous guffaw. Reader, I laughed out loud. The key to a good apology has always been sincerity, and whatever faults Swift may have, a lack of sincerity has never been one of them.
No matter. As a slice of gothic pop-star paranoia, it gives a much-needed bit of edge to Bumped up a couple of spots for the line about vultures, which I can only assume is a shout-out. Finally, at a pivotal moment she stands up in front of everyone and protests the impending union.
Luckily the guy is cool with it, so we get a happy ending! Mostly for better. The way the whole song starts and stops is an obvious trick, but I like it. In just her second album, she and Rose gave us this clear-eyed look at the emptiness of symbolic gestures, allegedly finished in a mere 45 minutes. Almost left off the album, but saved thanks to Shonda Rhimes.
Here, we go from Kelly Clarkson verses to a roller-coaster chorus to a dubstep breakdown that dates the song as surely as radiocarbon — then back again. Good to see you? Never mind that Red had its own sugary singles. Docked ten or so spots for the spoken-word bridge and cheerleader breakdown, which might be the worst 24 seconds of the entire album. The exuberance of the lyrics is matched in the way she tumbles from line to line into the chorus.
Accidents happen. But careers take hard work. Even as a teenager, Swift was savvy enough to know that country fans love nothing more than listening to songs about listening to country music. Are those fucking gunshots? The boys in the debut were just Nashville randos; this one was about a Jonas Brother, back when that really meant something. Obligatory fiddles aside, the original version is just about a perfect piece of pop-rock — dig how the guitars drop out at a pivotal moment — though the extended edition of Fearless also contains a piano version if you feel like having your guts ripped out.
Despite the dress-up games in the chorus, this is one of the rare Swift love songs to feel truly adult: Both she and the guy have been down this road too many times to bullshit anymore. They all come so naturally here. For a singer often slammed as being sexless, those sighs in the chorus tell us everything we need to know.
Bumped up a few spots for the invigorating double-time bridge, the best on What a surprise it was, then, that Red opened with this big, expansive rock track, which sent dozens of Joshua Tree fans searching for their nearest pair of headphones.
Another surprise: that she never tried to sound like this again. Having proven she could nail it on her first try, Swift set out to find other giants to slay. Thompson gets a co-writing credit. Carly Rae Jepsen had a No. Freaking Gotye had a No. LMFAO had two. And yet Swift, arguably the biggest pop star in the country, had never had a No.
And so she called up Swedish pop cyborg Max Martin, the man who makes hits as regularly as you and I forget our car keys. Martin and Shellback bring their usual bells and whistles, but they leave enough empty space in the mix for the words to ring out. Swift gets this almost instinctively, and never more than on this early ballad about her freshman year of high school, which plays like a gentle memoir.
Feminism — and she knows how fantasies can sustain you when nothing else will. Virgins need love songs, too. There are few moments on Red better than the one where Swift jumps into her upper register to deliver the knockout blow in the bridge. More than anything! I felt so bad for him at that moment.
Swift would play both women in the video; she had enough self-awareness to know that most outcasts are not tall, willowy blonde girls. Account Profile.

25 Adorable Love Song Lyrics to Inspire Your Wedding Vows
Christmas lights all day And rightly so We feel high as fuck And everything is good Good to go. Close my eyes Feel you sigh A desperate aching wonder Will you ever, ever let me off my knees. Wide awake Like a dream As simple as a secret Being told, told to everyone but me. Another day Come undone I keep trying to heal your pain In return you cut me over and over One more time and I will. Soft spot Shaking from the knees up Got me screaming sneak a peak Into my life dear Now just breathe it in. Fear in itself Will reel you in and spit you out Over and over again Believe in yourself And you will walk Fear in itself Will use you up and break you down like you were never enough I used to fall, now I get back up. Fear in itself Will reel you in And spit you out over and over again Believe in yourself and you will walk Fear in itself Will use you up and break you down like you were never enough I used to fall but now I get back up. Get back up Get up. I used to act like a soldier I never even picked up a gun I used to dress like a hooker But never seemed to hook anyone I used to flow like a river Burning bridges people could cross I used to think I was a looker But look at all the shit that I lost. I used to think I was a savior But never seemed to save anyone.

I hate the world today You're so good to me I know but I can't change Tried to tell you But you look at me like maybe I'm an angel underneath Innocent and sweet. Yesterday I cried You must have been relieved To see the softer side I can understand how you'd be so confused I don't envy you I'm a little bit of everything All rolled into one. I'm a bitch I'm a lover I'm a child I'm a mother I'm a sinner I'm a saint I do not feel ashamed I'm your hell I'm your dream I'm nothing in between You know you wouldn't want it any other way. So take me as I am This may mean you'll have to be a stronger man Rest assured that when I start to make you nervous And I'm going to extremes Tomorrow I will change And today won't mean a thing.
