Reasons I listen to Taylor Swift
We all know that Taylor seems to be at the butt of jokes. However, recently I’ve rediscovered her musical prowess.
The first and only time I seemed to have enjoyed Taylor was when her slow sweet acoustic ballad “Tears on My Guitar” played on the radio late at night while I was trying to get to sleep. I had one listen, more than 6 years ago, and I related to the brutal and painful, soft singing of Taylor. She felt so real to me at that vulnerable moment of adolescence.
However, fast forward many years later, and Taylor’s singing the same old whiny tune. It gets real old, real fast. But, lately when everything with men in my life has just turned to complete shit for some reason, the disappointed younger version of myself is craving Taylor’s self assured assertive, pop girl persona. Her recent music is a lot more light hearted and pop!
I’m surprised by how sweet and fun it is, instead of the usual whining. This Taylor reminds me of Hilary Duff back when I used to jump up and down on my bed and shake my finger at imaginary boyfriends.
It’s upbeat, mindless, and when you’re completely lost in the anxiety of your life, it’s the perfect get away.
