Tunesday-Taylor Swift


Everything has changed…..

I can NOT stand Taylor Swift!

And I’m a big fat liar pants. I want to hate her music. Tell you she has annoying beady blue eyes and she’s a hack. But I’ve come to realize she is quite genuine. She plays guitar, sings marginally well, and writes her own music. Taylor’s music is a little too pop for me. I want to hate her, but I just can’t.

I listened to the song, 22 and couldn’t help but sing along. As I took in the lyrics, I envisioned myself running around with one of my best guy friends, and acting all kinds of stupid.  However, the little heart sign she makes with her hands in every damn photo, makes me want to slap her.  This self-proclaimed Music Whore is on Taylor Swift crack!

I’m too damn hip for this. Oh my fucking God what’s wrong with me?

I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling 22!

I’m obsessed.  Give me more Taylor, PLEASE!

Awhile back I wrote a Friday Fictioneers story, about a sculptor, seduced by a man she thought loved her. I ended the story with the song, Trouble. The main character knew that the man was no good for her, but she fell anyway. He was trouble, yet she wanted him all the same. My character knew she would be left broken, but she had to try.

The Madness of a Woman Seduced

There’s Mean, Love Story, You Belong With Me, and my all time favorite, White Horse. I can’t forget Back to December either. Yeesh, I’m a sucker for lovely lyrics and a simple tune.

Say you’re sorry
That face of an angel comes out just when you need it to
As I paced back and forth all this time
‘Cause I honestly believed in you

Holding on, the days drag on
Stupid girl, I should have known
I should have known

That 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

This ain’t Hollywood, this is a small town
I was a dreamer before you went and let me down
Now it’s too late for you and your white horse to come around

Simple words to tug at my sparkly heart . They make me want to write romantic stories about a knight in shining armor that comes to save the damsel in distress. Thing is, I’m no distressed damsel. I’m not looking for a white knight on a noble steed. I want to be my own KISA (Knight in Shining Armor).

Somehow Taylor’s music inspires me, to chew giant wads of pink bubble gum and blow bubbles the size of my head. To wear one of my many tiaras, act like a princess and wish for the age of 22. And to hope that someday, someone will be….Mine.

And I remember that fight, 2:30 a.m.

You said everything was slipping right out of our hands

I ran out, crying, and you followed me out into the street

Braced myself for the goodbye, because that’s all I’ve ever known

Then you took me by surprise

You said, “I’ll never leave you alone.”

You said. “I remember how we felt, sitting by the water

And everytime I look at you, it’s like the first time

I fell in love with a careless man’s careful daughter

She is the best thing that’s ever been mine.”

  1. I share your pain. I love Taylor, I should not but I cant help it. And yes I have them all and I play them in the car with the volume cranked and singing at the top of my lungs.

  2. I don’t like her as a singer, but darn it, her songs are stuck in my brain, and I hum them, or sing them. Why is that ? especially YOU BELONG WITH ME ! ! Oh, my gosh !

  3. This post made me smile, Renee..Taylor has baffled me with her vocal ability; wondering how she made it. I used to sing when I was younger and I guess, a little critical, so please forgive me. 🙂 Her voice is OK, but it certainly isn’t like Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, etc…but, I do love the fact that she writes her songs, I believe she’s a good entertainer, is cute and seems thought, though, is that she’s gaining a rep. writing about her long lost loves and at 22, how many can she possibly have? Well, I guess when you’re famous, you can have many. I just think her music will have to mature as she gets older…but I do like her, regardless of all I’ve said.I think she came about at a time where no one else was around in her genre and age group and she got lucky and yes, better than Miley now…I pretty much love all of her songs, especially, “You Belong with Me!” 🙂

    • I like that she plays, sings and writes too. You’re right she came out at the right time. Who does she really have to compete with, Miley Cyrus? Ewww!

      Her song, Everything Has Changed kinda changed my life. Here I am at 45 years old, listening to the song in my car and blubbering like a child. But it changed my life all the same.

      You belong with me is a good one. So is the song, Mean.

      Thanks for the comments honey. I love every single one of them!!!!

      • What’s funny is I used to like her as Hannah Montana; she was a cute young star. Then I guess she wanted to “grow up” and so that’s what she’s doing. 😉 Anyway, I also like Taylor’s new song with Ed; it’s very pretty and I’m sure many can relate to it. Songs just hit us sometimes, you know? Age has no bearing! And yes, Mean is a good one, also! Take care and it’s been nice reconnecting! xx

  4. Well actually, I can easily say I don’t like Taylor Swift. She’s way too sweet for me, not ballsy enough. But each to their own 🙂

      • Hi sweetheart,

        I love Taylor too! This song is near and dear to me and reminds me so much of a good friend of mine. The photo I found when I did a Google search for the lyrics. I tried to find it again, but I can’t. You’re welcome use the image from my page since I have to no legal right to it anyway.

        Love, Renee
