Speak Now

It's a little weird that I like Taylor Swift considering all of her songs are a chick flick in musical form (in case you didn't know, I hate chick flicks. According to my Netflix account I like gritty thrillers and critically acclaimed documentaries.) Seriously, every single one is about a guy that she's in love with or how she wants some other girl's boyfriend or she's mad at someone. But I think I love her because she's the kind of singer/songwriter I'd be if I were clever enough to make my feelings rhyme.

One of my friends is just amazed that people continue to date her. Let me just say that I would love for her write me song. I don't care if she's angry or if she wants my man. I would give her my boyfriend for a song.

But seriously, Speak Now is beautifully written, clever, and as heartfelt and soul touching as her other albums. Taylor Swift sings to the love-lorn 13 year old girl in all of us, and even if you don't like her, you have to admit it's relatable. It's a little weird hearing the Pre-teen Song Queen singing lines like "There's a drawer of my things at your place, (Mine)" or "She's better known for the things that she does on a mattress, (Better Than Revenge)" but then I remember she's my age, and she's gotta "grow up" sometime.

I've been listening to this CD non-stop for a week. And yes, I bought the Target exclusive CD with 3 extra songs and a music video and extra Taylor Swift goodness. I read an article saying that country music is the only genre really selling CDs instead of people just downloading individual songs. But if I can encourage you at all to support Taylor Swift, I'm recommending the following.

Songs to Download: Mine, Back to December

My Personal Favorites: Sparks Fly, Speak Now, Better Than Revenge, Enchanted

Song that Most Reflects My Life Right Now: The Story of Us

So what are you waiting for? At least look them up on Youtube. Just don't look up the ones of her in concert. I love her and all, but she is not great live.
