Tay-Tay Everyday-Day

I know there are some haters out there. And I know you feel strongly that Taylor Swift is sub-par. That she doesn't win any awards in your personal high and mighty music judging book. That she is too teenie bopper. That her music isn't quality enough to be considered truly good music. Sort of like how you won't read Twilight because you don't consider it actual literature.

I also know that, although you are entitled to your opinions, my opinion is that you need a little more Tay-Tay in your day day. Here she is, a beautiful young girl who knows how to own it thru her passions. She writes music, lyrics, plays guitar, and sings. And rocks a good portion of my iPod Nano. Yes, she needs to work on her posture, but who doesn't?
Most importantly, everytime I listen to Taylor Swift I feel. Happy, sad, hurt, nostalgic, mad. Whatever she is singing about I can usually relate and feel my feelings. Sort of like therapy. Therapy for my ears and music to my soul.
Keep owning it Taylor. Don't worry about what anyone else thinks, I know you're an Uptown Girl in training.

I'm so glad to see someone whose opinion I value give some props to this girl. The only other defense that I've read (not that I've gone looking for any) was by Peter Cooper, oh he of the beautiful hair/singersongwriter/music critic for the Nashville Tennesseean.

The only song that I know for sure is Taylor's is the one about Romeo and Juliette, and I love that one.

I love her. I am not a usual celeb fanatic but she rocks! Everything she touches turns to gold!

and yes...she has bad posture..

Amanda said...

Agreed! Shes' awesome. If you want something with substance, listen to someone else. The haters out there are ridiculous. She's one of the few young artists who actually writes her own music and plays her own instruments. Maybe they are about boys and breaking up and being in love, but what's wrong with that? I still get a little misty when I hear "Our Song", thinking about when I first met my hubby! You go TSwift!
