Taylor Swift's 1989

I have loved Taylor Swift since she came out with her first album - my favorite song being Teardrops On My Guitar. Yep, I was that girl in middle school. Since then, her songs have basically been the soundtrack to my very dramatic "relationships" and "heartbreaks." I remember sitting in the car at 14 and listening to her song Fifteen and just not being able to wait until I was 15 because I couldn't wait to see what it was like. So, long story short, I love her.
Unless you live under a rock, you'll probably know that Taylor Swift's new album came out yesterday. It's called 1989 and has a distinct 80's sound (hence 1989…), which I happen to love. There are always mean comments that all of her songs are about her past love interests (name an artist who hasn't written about their relationships?), but I happen to love her writing. I think her lyrics say so well things that all of us have felt and experienced at one time or another and when she ties them in with such addicting choruses, it's a winning combo. I pre-ordered the album while driving the minute I heard Shake It Off, but I actually think that Welcome To New York has tied Shake It Off for my favorite. Welcome To New York has such an 80s feel, while Shake It Off is the classic feel good song - perfect to sing while driving around with the top down or dance to in a club…hence my obsession. If you haven't yet, give the album a listen here

If you need another reason to fall in love with Taylor - haters need not comment - watch this video. She's so cool and does so much for her fans and I can only imagine that this made their year. It gives me goosebumps to see how happy they all are and I really just want to be her best friend, okay?

P.S. - Just listened to Wildest Dreams for the first time and OMG. It's got a bit of a Lana Del Rey flair and with lyrics like these..
"I thought, heaven can't help me now
Nothing lasts forever
But this is gonna take me down
He's so tall, and handsome as hell
He's so bad but he does it so well"
It's basically I Knew You Were Trouble Part II…new favorite.
