I’ve touched on my love/hate relationship with Taylor Swift, and let me yell ya, I’m currently in a “love” phase with her new pop album. (You can make fun of me). If I don’t have “Style” stuck in my head at some point during the day, it is a miracle.
That’s fine and dandy. They dated for like 3 weeks so naturally Taylor was able to get 7 songs created based on their relationship. I wish I was that talented. Anyway, if this song is about Hank, why on earth does she think it’s appropriate to tell him “You got that James Dean daydream look in your eye?” What an insult to James Dean. Maybe she doesn’t know what he looks like. Should someone tell her? Here, I will.
Not at all similar. She goes on to tell Hank “You got that long hair, slicked back, white t-shirt,” and I think it was supposed to be another Dean reference, but I can’t help but notice how inaccurate her comparison is, once again.
What the hell were you thinking, Tay? Was this just one of those things where she really liked him so he clearly looked more attractive than he actually was? I sure hope so. Otherwise, she needs help.
It’s obvious that there are so many of Taylor Swift songs that have lyrics that make absolutely no sense, but since this one is over-played so often it has been on my mind too often. I had to address it because I was genuinely outraged when I realized what she was trying to say. Maybe this should be an installment. I could devote an entire blog to ridiculous Swift lyrics. But, then again, I’m the one with this lowly blog and she’s the one who was a millionaire at age 16, so who am I to judge? JK, I will obviously continue to judge/love her at the same time.
For your unrelated amusement, I came across the photo below when I was looking for pictures and I will be laughing for days at this over-the-top attempt to look attractive.
