Taylor Swift has always been known for crafting sweet melodic pop-country singles that showcases with her romantic idealism that most people seem to admire. Her charming persona has helped her creep into the hearts of millions of people and has established a connection that makes the listener sympathise with Taylor. However, some peole still find her lyrics juvenile, although her songwriting skills displays imagination and technique that spans years beyond her age, which has distanced most audiences. On her new single “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”, Taylor might be gaining some new fans.
Hitting up producers Max Martin and Shellback, Taylor releases her inner pop diva with this pop-fledged jam. The song sees Taylor stepping further into pop territory and the insanely catchy hook “oohh oohhh ooh ohh” points all signs at Max Martin. The song’s out-of-this-world chanty sing-along chorus will remain stuck in your head and the lyric “You’d hide away and find some peace of mind with some indie record that’s much cooler than mine,” is the best thing Taylor has ever said! You can even picture the dramatic eye roll Tay must have made when she recorded that lyric. I’m sure country radio, who’s embraced Jesus for some reason, will appreciate this new side of their beloved Pop-country Princess.
The remarkable thing about the song is that the situation manages to be satirical due to Taylor’s sarcastic take on the nature, replacing the usual charismatic charm and adding not only an underlying personality to the song but almost an unabashed humour, showcasing just how creative Taylor is and making the song more accessible.
Avril Lavigne is writing a death note to Taylor Swift as we speak, after hearing this song…
However, the real question is: will Taylor finally obtain her first #1 single? Only time will tell. If Taylor continues to release such fun and humourous songs, then ‘Red” will be another home run for Taylor.
‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’ was released to iTunes and will be lifted from her new album “Red”.
