Ms. Taylor Swift

You know who I haven’t talked about in a while? Tswizzle.
I always do this thing, you see, where I get super excited for something and it’s all I talk about for a while, and then it happens, and then it’s just like “oh. I’m kind of over that for a while now” and then I don’t really think about it for a few weeks or months and then I fall in love with it again. It happened with Harry Potter; I was so excited for DH, but after it came out and I read it, I didn’t touch any of the books or movies for like a year. And now it’s happened with Tsweezy. Remember how excited I was for her concert? Well, once it was over, I didn’t listen to her music for nearly three months. Seriously. Like, I didn’t set out to do it, it just kind of happened. I wouldn’t listen to playlists containing her songs, or get in a mood to blast them and sing along. I still loved it, and her, I just was on a bit of a break.
Then last Monday I couldn’t sleep. I can’t remember why, I think I was overthinking everything and freaking out because I just couldn’t cope and all of a sudden I felt like listening to Ms. Swift again. Needless to say, I then spent the next 2.6hours dancing around my room singing along at the top of my lungs. This was at midnight. Thank goodness I live in a separated bungalow.
Now I’m back in the mood for her and have been listening again almost to the point of my previous obsession.
I’m going to be completely honest here and say that I don’t think Taylor’s voice is the greatest I’ve ever heard. She’s amazing, don’t get me wrong, but in my opinion she’s far from the best, especially live. The reason I think she’s so popular and has won so many awards, and probably the reason I mainly like her is because her songs are just so darn relatable. She sings, and you realise you’re not the only person in the world going through whatever you’re going through. She sings the soundtrack to teen life.
Examples:
I’m no-one special just another wide eyed girl who’s desperately in love with you.
Why can’t you see? You belong with me.
These things will change, can you feel it now? These walls that they put up to hold us back will fall down.
You sit in class next to a red-head named Abigail and soon enough you’re best friends. Laughing at the other girls who think they’re so cool we’ll be out of here as soon as we can.
I bet she’s beautiful, that girl he talks about, and she’s got everything that I have to live without.
I’m not a princess, this ain’t a fairytale, I’m not the one you’ll sweep off her feet lead her up the stairwell.
Hold on, baby you’re losing it, the water’s high you’re jumping into it and letting go, and no-one knows that you cry, but you don’t tell anyone, that you might not be the golden one. You’re tied together with a smile but you’re coming undone.
See what I mean? That’s why she’s so amazingly famous.

Toong and I have this thing, in theory, that every Tuesday it’s ‘Taylor Tuesday’ and we listen to all her songs with Tuesday and 2am in them, which is a lot. But it only works in theory because I always forget. Does anyone want to play along with us?

  1. First off-thanks for adding me on myspace. :)I love your little (or BIG) obsessions.And yes, I always have said that Taylor definately doesn't have the best voice out there (like Demi and her pipes!), but her songs are relatble, and the fact that she DOESN'T have a perfect voice is awesome. :)xx,~Abby~

  2. yeah, I go through phases with music. Once it was Evanescence, another time ABBA, another time Good Charlotte-currently, it's Regina Spektor!I love feeling like I can't sleep and than just putting your ipod in and signing or dancing with it instead lol.

  3. ^^ L, forever and always 'i believe it was a tuesday when i caught your eye'you belong with me 'i'm in my room it's a typical tuesday night'and i think there's more, but they're escaping me. two am:breathe 'two am feeling like i just lost a friend'that's the way i loved you 'it's two am and i'm cursing your name'…ok.when i put it that way, there aren't many, but it seriously seems like there's more when you listen to it…fp x

  4. Totally true. Her voice is not the BEST but her songwriting is AMAZING, and they're what make you love the song anyway. Her success is quite incredible. Have you heard of her song "I'd Lie"? It's not on her albums so not everyone knows it but it is flippin fantastic!

  5. Thanks FP, you know what else she says a lot: lines about faking a smile.She says it in I'd Lie, that's the way i loved you and about 3 more.
