Taylor Swift | Shake It Off

Thursday, 21 August 2014

Yesterday morning I stumbled across a new Taylor Swift song in my newsfeed.  I'm a pretty big T-Swift fan, but in many ways this song falls short for me.

Its catchy and fun and I have probably listened to it 20 times this morning.  But for a woman so gifted with words, the lyrics are amateurish at best.  For somebody so graceful, her attempt to fail at dancing with professionals comes across as unauthentic.

I still love Taylor, but I wish she had let her talent shine in this song.  Instead, this strikes me as a fun song that will be easily forgotten.  I hope that her new album is made of higher quality stuff.

What do you think of the song?
