Speak Now


Taylor Swift's Speak Now album is a guessing game and it's a fun one too. Based on rumors (yes, because I'm too lazy doing my own research *wink), I've paired up the songs with its said to be lovers or hater. For instance, Mine=Cory Monteith; Innocent=Kanye West; Dear John=John Mayer; Back To December=Taylor Lautner; The Story Of Us=Joe Jonas. Whether or not it's true, it's one heck of a game.

Speak Now (Deluxe Edition) Tracklist:
Mine 
Sparks Fly 
Back to December 
Speak Now 
Dear John 
Mean
The Story of Us
Never Grow Up
Enchanted
Better Than Revenge
Innocent 
Haunted
Last Kiss
Long Live
Ours
If This Was A Movie
Superman
Back To December (Acoustic)
Haunted (Acoustic)
Mine (US Version)
Back To December (US Version)
The Story Of Us (US Version)
Rating: A-
Favorites: Last Kiss, Dear John, Haunted

Musically speaking, it still has its fairy-tale country way of relating the songs for her fans. Some of the songs are very moving too, it sends shivers down the spine and keeps shattered hearts shattered for the heartbroken (listen to Last Kiss, Enchanted, Haunted, If This Was A Movie and Dear John at your own risk). There's a dose of dragons, sparks, enchantment and revenge as well. I like how some of the lyrics are so frank like in Enchanted, there's a line that goes "please don't be in love with someone else"; In Better Than Revenge, another goes "i'm just another thing for you to roll your eyes at honey". It's like she's implicitly telling us to speak our mind through songs. You go Taylor!

The album was good. Mean, Innocent, Back to December were some of my favorite songs. I love how you did a review on an album, you should do a review on Rihanna's album 'LOUD' when it comes out!

I love Taylor Swift and her new album. I have been listening to it recently. I especially love Enchanted and Back to December. I saw Taylor Swift in concert for her Fearless tour at the beginning of this year. It was the most amazing night of my life.

She seems like such a sweet girl... but I keep wanting to deny the Cory Monteith rumours! He's so cute and I'm jealous! Haahaha.

i've read in yahoo news that the way to decipher her songs is through the random capital letters within her lyrics...spelling out the name of the person to whom the song is for. :D

i'm still listening to the rest of the songs in her album...if you haven't yet, you should listen to leona naess' 'thirteen' album...it's sweet and enchanting.
