TAYLOR SWIFT, AND HER SONG’S INSPIRATION

TAYLOR SWIFT

Taylor Swift over time has been known to deliver amazing music. Some which have bagged her awards, some featured in movies and maybe, even in a cartoon. However, there are quite a few very important things most lovers of the Grammy winner didn’t know about her.

For instance, I bet most of you did not know that the music icon wrote her first song “Lucky You” at the age of 12.

But today we would not be talking about her personal life, but how some of her amazing hit tracks came to life, what inspired them.

1- “CHANGES”

Was a solo song written by Taylor swift. It is a song off her “Fearless” album. It was at the point she began to understand that it would be hard for her to succeed as much as she wanted or as her colleagues did in a smaller record label. Also, she realized it wouldn’t get her favors, and encouraging herself with the hope that someday things would change and be different.  It was after telling herself that over and over did she finally write it down as a song.

2- “THE WAY I LOVED YOU”

is a song still off her “Fearless” album and was written by Taylor Swift and co-writer John Rich. Taylor Swift got the idea for this track when she was thinking about being in a relationship with a nice guy who is perfect in every way. a guy who is punctual to dates and opens doors for you but then you feel nothing for him. And the whole time you are with him, you are thinking about that guy who is complicated and frustrating and messy.

She went on to share her idea with her co-writer John who was able to relate due to the fact he was that complicated, frustrating guy.

3- “LOVE STORY”

was soley written by Taylor swift. This track came to her when she was dating a guy the crowd didn’t think was good enough for her. He was a little complicated but she didn’t care. She started writing the song with the line “this love is difficult, but it’s real”. But when she wrote the end of the song “marry me, Juliet, I love you”, she felt like it was the kind of ending every girl wanted in her relationship including her.

4- “FIFTEEN”

Also solely written by Taylor Swift. This track revolves around a story of her best friend from high school, Abigail. Taylor Swift decided that she wanted to tell a story about their first year of high school because she felt her freshman year was the year she grew up more than any year in her life.

She started everything with the line with “Abigail gave everything she had to a boy who changed his mind” and wrote everything from that point almost backward.
