If you have never heard of Taylor Swift then I am here to help. To truly this young and extremely talented artist and songwriter you must experience these five songs.
This song starts at the first day of high school. It highlights the fact that at such a young age we are all so innocent. When that innocence is gone in a form of physical love, that other person can leave. This horrible but realistic situation makes this song great to relive what it was like to be young.
This was Taylor’s debut single. It is fun and inspiring. It is about a love that has happened, and even though they are not together anymore, she hopes he still thinks about her. She talks about the things they shared during a summer romance. It uses the reference of Tim McGraw to remember the dance they danced together.
This song is in honor of those relationships that are just plain fun. It talks about a young couple being up until all hours of the night talking on the phone. This song reminds me of what it was like during the first few months of a relationship. As the girl in the song is trying to pick out a song for her and her beau, he tells her that their song is too unique to pick something out from the radio. She happily agrees and hopes that their song will play again.
Should’ve said no
The title of this song should say it all. It is another cheating song but with a twist. Instead of being a moping cheating song, it is a song about power. The girl dismisses her guy with no problems. He is left at her feet asking for forgiveness. She just has to utter, “Should’ve said no” for him to realize that he blew it all. He tries to make excuses for his behavior but she just does not want to hear it. My favorite line of this song is when she asks the great question “was she worth it?”
The way I loved you
This song starts being a sweet song about a very loving and perfect relationship. However, during this relationship she longs for the other one. The type where they were always fighting but it gave her a rush of emotion that she does not experience with this one. Her parents love the guy she is with but it is just too comfortable. This song feeds into the idea of being too comfortable and too perfect. I love this song because it gives out the type of emotion we have all experienced in our life at some time. I know it feels weird to want that crazy feeling back.
Taylor Swift is a great artist. Her hits are climbing the charts at incredible speed. These are five of her best songs.
