Ever since I started to actually listen to English songs (which is circa 2008, right before joining HFM, YES I WAS LEVING UNDER A ROCK ALL THAT TIME, a rock that played bollywood songs though.), I have been a fan of Taylor Swift. Her music speaks to me (and most of her teenage fans-__-), and sometimes I feel like the song was written about me. You know how it goes. When you hear a song that just perfectly fits your life. But of course my life’s not all about guys who should belong with me or fights at two thirty a.m.
I believe Taylor herself is a nice role model (despite her many failed relationships). I of course don’t know much about her, but I heard sometime ago that she bought an expensive house and gifted it to her parents. Now that’s the kind of daughter I want to be!
I have listened to various of her songs, but my favorite is Mean. I love it because it is a reminder to always dream big and never let other people drag you down. Someday I’ll be big enough so you can’t hit me, and all you’re ever gonna be is mean. The lyrics are so applicable to anyone with a passionate dream. I myself have been criticized several times by people even closest to me, about having big dreams and I’ve hardly let them get to me. My second favorite is A Place in this world. The first time I hear it, I was like OFCOURSE IT’S ABOUT ME. It’s about the strong girls, who of course are trying to find their place in this big scary world. I'll be strong, I’ll be wrong, oh but life goes on! When something bothers me too much, I tell myself this. It works, most of the times. My next favorite is Picture to Burn. I love how she brings all her rage together, and is calm but confident. This is a really good breakup song. Honest. There’s no time for tears, as I’m sitting here planning my revenge. There’s nothing stopping me from going out with all of your best friends. I love this line.
Some honorable mentions
Teardrops on my guitar – She better hold him tight give him all the love.
Mine – You made a rebel of careless man’s careful daughter, you are the best thing that’s ever been mine.
You Belong With Me – I'm in my room, listening to the kind of music she doesn’t like.
Today Was a Fairytale – Can you feel that magic in the air?
Change – and we’ll sing hallelujah!
Forever and Always – It rains when you’re here and it rains when you’re gone.
She is extremely nice to her fans and I so so want to try her fragrance Wonderstruck. I love how nice and shocked she seems every time she wins an award and how she always wears her signature white dresses in videos and sparkly gowns to ceremonies. I love her songs, and hope that she stays clean and nice, unlike some other stars. Yes, Lindsay and Miley I am talking about you!
