I love taylorswift a ton. Even when I claimed I didn’t like her I had her albums on my iPod and I listened to them when no one was around and I was feeling crappy. Taylor swift has the most incredible gift of writing her songs so they’re so personal you know that she has specific memories in mind when she’s writing them but also so broad that literally anyone can relate to them. Sometimes you just have to listen to a sad Taylor swift song and cry your eyes out and sometimes you listen to her sweet little ballads with a smile on your face. And of course Taylor has songs like sparks fly or her lead single off of her upcoming album 1989 shake it off that make you want to dance barefoot in the street because you can’t contain the happiness the song transfers. Taylor swift, is one of the strongest songwriters in the industry simply because she can convey so much emotion. She is a genuinely talented musician and she is a friend of her fans across the world. Her fans know her through her music and through her social media accounts. She’s a special kind of person who recognizes her power as a celebrity and chooses to be a good influence but also mi rains a down to earth attitude when fans approach her on the street. I believe she’s often misunderstood because of some of her earlier songs and people still think of her as a 16 year old with tear drops on her guitar, when she is 24 and has done a lot of growing up since her first few albums. I believe in the power of Taylor swift as a musician because I’m a lot of ways you just can’t help but like her. I want to thank Taylor personally for being the soundtrack to my heartbreaks and my love stories and for giving us all the gifts of fairy tales and sad movies in song form.
Probably the most magical moment in my life was Thursday night, in the crowded, hotter than hell basement venue jenny lewis was playing, in the second row, looking up at her as she sang “a better son/daughter” with the crowd. The connection between all of us who have undoubtedly felt the way jenny felt when she wrote that song all coming together in the sweaty, dingy old theatre was incredible. Some of us have moved onto be happy, as the song says we would be, and some of us are still in bed dreaming of a time when we loved things just because. But in that moment, we are all there, all present to witness this prophetic goddess sing her timeless words that have resonated with us for years or days or even moments, we were all the same. We all felt this moment and it’s something we’ll take with us. It’s a little bit of magic and everybody has it.
