Musical Mondays: Taylor Swift

redUp until her most recent album, Red, I was a huge Taylor Swift fan. I own three of her albums (Speak Now, Fearless, and Taylor Swift) and I still enjoy listening to them. However, I was highly disappointed with Red, so much so that I did not buy a single song from it. I understand that she wanted to change her sound, but now she sounds like everyone else. I used to love Taylor Swift because her songs told stories and had meaningful, clever, and thoughtful lyrics. Well, there is nothing meaningful, clever, or thoughtful about We Are Never Getting Back Together. Her new musical style sounds fake, auto-tuned, and just not pleasant.

So now I just listen to her older music. My favorite album of hers is Fearless. In no particular order, my top favorite Taylor Swift songs are:

  • You Belong With Me
  • Love Story
  • The Story of Us
  • Never Grow Up
  • Long Live
  • Mary’s Song (Oh My My My)
  • Our Song
  • Forever & Always
  • Picture to Burn
  • Jump Then Fall

As far as I’m concerned, Taylor Swift’s new image has resulted in a decrease in the quality of her music.

I’ll stick to the old stuff, thanks.
