All she's done is found her muse, many artists can't say that.

It just so happens her muse is straddling D. If she swore off men, she'd fade into obscurity faster than that chick who sang that terrible "Friday" song.

Meanwhile, apparently a significantly naughtier boy invited himself over to her place in Nashville yesterday. With a knife.

Naturally, he claimed to be her boyfriend.

So theoretically we could cut down on Taylor Swift's song output if guy-celebrities stopped dating her?

We need to come to some sort of civilisational agreement that only one celebrity will date her per calendar year, so it'll take 7-8 years to generate enough material for a full album.

Once a year we all vote on a celebrity, dress him up in a nice tuxedo, put leis and flower garlands around his neck, and admist much singing and dancing and grass skirts, throw him over the perimeter fence onto Taylor Swift's lawn.

The "one and done" strategy is your best bet for sticking your dick in crazy. If you go back for more just once you're in for a hellride.

Stupid, immature young women say stupid, immature things about dating.

Too bad she's so stupid that she can't look in a mirror and see where the problem really lies: with herself.

She writes about whatever's happening in her life. If she were in a stable, long-term relationship, you'd hear about that too. Remember she doesn't just write break-up songs. She writes songs about the initial attraction as well, and if a relationship lasts long enough to get songs written about its maintenance, that'll get songs too. Or maybe someone else's relationship. Or a daydream. Or her band. Or her mom. Or the simple act of growing up.

First, let me say you have a disturbing familiarity with her oeuvre; but I appreciate the insight, even if it derails my fool-proof plan.

What if we paid off some producer so that Taylor Swift replaced Hayden Pantyair on Nashville. Then she'd be singing, but it would be songs the show writers crafted for her. And they might not be about relationships. Or her mom, or band, or dog, or the kid who comes to the door selling Girl Guide cookies. And as a bonus, Hayden Pantyair's singing career might get shot down before it really takes off.

That'd be win-win, right?

Her lyrics remind me of the shiat I (and probably a good percentage of other girls of twitlet age) wrote about The Guy Of The Moment around age12-14. Wretched verse I poured out of my naive little soul, styling myself a budding poet. Thank goodness I had no talent, less beauty, and people threw shoes at me when I sang. The result may have been a yard full of boys waiting to disappoint me and piles of cash to swim in while I select the next Muse.

I can say from personal experience that putting your dick in the crazy is farking awesome. It's the time in between the sexing that is scary and needs to be avoided.

One is a pop singer who, lets face it, couldnt break through as a blues artist, and the other is a constant bargaining chip for superhero movies to get the actor they really want. Watch out, ladies.

That's a line from one of her songs. It's called 'mean'. My daughter is a big Taylor Swift fan. I like TS because she's one of the few women in popular music that doesn't act like a kook or a slut. I would much rather my daughter emulate Taylor than Nikki Minaj.

Are you uh... sure about that?

Buying the house next to your BF's grandma, and writing a million breakup songs could, in some states, be sufficient to return a judgment of "kook".

Despite her many many relationships in a short period of time, I will concede nolo contendre to the matter of sluttiness, at least until a full frontal boob shot appears on TMZ.

If she wasn't famous, i wouldn't even turn my head if she passed by on the street.

Furthermore, she's only famous in the first place, because Kanye West insulted her so bad, which made her a household name.

I find her bland and without substance. There's really no way to make a meal out of her. Such is the case with all pop stars though. Nothing but pink slime, to be used in some ultra-cheap fast food burger. I seek out far more flavorful dishes. Kobe Beef, seared to perfection, needing no other embellishments to enhance the meal. But no, we have rice cakes served in a colorful box with a prize inside, and expected to consider it a wonderful meal prepared by a master chef. Give me tamales, stuffed with seasoned beef, green chiles so potent you can smell them from 50 feet away while still raw. Give me flavor, satisfy my hunger, I'd rather starve than live on this crap.

TheEdibleSnuggie: So basically bad 8th grade poetry?


She's really a very good writer. The subject matter might lend itself to 8th-grade poetry, but on the technicals she's usually really on her game. In particular, she has a few techniques she likes using.

Her favorite technique tends to be the third-verse turn of phrase. It's most often cited in Mean and Love Story, but you also see it in White Horse, Never Grow Up, The Lucky One, Speak Now, Change, Fifteen, and on and on like that.

Her second favorite technique tends to be taking the first couple lyrics of the song and bringing them in again at the very end. That goes way back to Tim McGraw; it's also seen in Teardrops On My Guitar, Red, I Almost Do, Haunted, etc.

And she combined both of them in Our Song and Innocent.

...yes. I know, I know. I'm the resident Swiftie around here. I have a floor seat bought to the show in Chicago next August.

You need to do yourself a favor and get to know Bob Dylan and The Beatles...and then get back to me about good songwriting.

CaffietineFiend: You need to do yourself a favor and get to know Bob Dylan and The Beatles...and then get back to me about good songwriting.


I think songwriting has evolved since the days of the Beatles. Most of the time, back then, you had some very short verses, often some very long pre-refrains and refrains that never changed over the course of the song, and many songs didn't bother to actually END, preferring to just sing the refrain over and over as the song faded out.

Here are the lyrics of Love Me Do. That was perfectly acceptable in 1963. Now, coming up on 50 years later, maybe Rihanna gets away with that kind of writing, but no serious songwriter would think to try. I mean, not to completely rag them out- there were much better songwriting efforts than that, such as Help or Paperback Writer, but even those are pretty simplistic by today's standards.

Now take Taylor. Here are the lyrics to, really, one of her simpler songwriting efforts, We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together. By her standards, a pretty easy write. Placed head-to-head against Help, maybe someone argues that Help is the more technically advanced songwriting effort, and I wouldn't begrudge them that, but I would ultimately disagree. And then you have one of her strongest writing jobs, Dear John. It is much, much more fleshed out and involved than anything the Beatles ever did. That's what 50 years of songwriting evolution does to lyrics.

I'm not slagging on the Beatles in any way here. Don't take away that impression. But they were playing in lyrical leather helmets.

Good lyrics are a bonus, but they are never what makes a song good or bad. Try looking at the damn music when you're comparing music. And no one touts Love Me Do as an example of superior songwriting.
