Review of "Taylor Swift - Taylor Swift"
Taylor Alison Swift was born December 13th, 1989, and she grew up in Pennsylvania. She is a singer, song-writer and has starred in a few acting roles. She has written or co-written every song she has released, which I personally think is what a singer should always do. Her self-titled album, which I'm reviewing, was her debut album, and was a huge success for releasing her into the music world. Her second album, Fearless, was the USA's top-selling album of 2009 (beating Susan Boyle), and actually persuaded me to get this album, and i'm so glad i did. She has so much talent: she has so much creativity to write loads of amazing songs; she knows how to relate to the audience in the truth of her music; she has musical talent - a gorgeous voice, ability to play guitar and piano; and she's just amazing.1. Tim McGraw
Her debut song, and was a massive success. The song asks somebody to remember her, especially when they think of country singer Tim McGraw. Very emotional.
2. Picture To Burn
One of my absolute favourites. Lots of attitude, an amazing music video. It describes how she's moved on from somebody, and how he's 'just another picture to burn' now
Slower, more emotional song about a guy who never realised how she felt about him, and he would talk about this other girl to her 'I'll bet she's beautiful, that girl he talks about. And she's got everything that i have to live without.'
4. Place In This World, A
Every person wants to find their place in the world, and Taylor describes her journey to find it. Very catchy.
Slowest track on album, but so emotional + powerful. Descibes a relationship in which the guy doesn't actually love her. 'You do what you want, 'cause I'm not what you wanted.'
6. Outside, The
This song describes how Taylor often felt like she was on 'the outside' of things when she was younger. Very good song.
Emotional song, about somebody who had an eating disorder as they thought they weren't pretty, but everybody knows she is. 'Seems the only one that doesn't see the beauty is the face in the mirror looking back at you.'
8. Stay Beautiful
This was about a guy who she had a brief crush on, and obviously found him beautiful. Not much emotion, but still a great song.
This very powerful song describes the anger Taylor feels about a person who cheated on her. Despite her being so young when she wrote this,it shows so much emotion and talent. One of my all-time favourites.
10. Mary's Song (Oh My My My)
Actually inspired by her eldery next-door neighbours, a couple who'd been married for a long time. Taylor has said all she had to do was 'look next door to see a perfect example of forever'.
Catchy little number about a couple having a unique song for their relationship- not an actual song, though, things like 'the slammin' screen door,...when we're on the phone and you talk real slow.'
12. I'm Only Me When I'm With You
_The title is pretty much self-explanatory. She can only be her true self with one person. Love this song,
