Review: A Man’s Guide To Taylor Swift’s Speak Now Album
A man’s guide to the brand new Speak Now album by Taylor Swift.
The hot topic buzzing around the internet this week surrounds the release of Taylor Swift’s Speak Now album. While my partner in crime L. Arner has already released a review, I figured it was only right to give a mans perspective on Swift’s new masterpiece.
So fellas, while you may deny to your frat brothers or sports-addicted co-workers that you enjoy a nice Swift jingle every now and then, just know that you are not alone. I am sure millions of men secretly indulge in the catchy jingles of a Taylor track, much like that of her first single ‘Mine.’ Of course you may not admit it, but know this. While you are listening to Taylor Swift’s brand new album, keep in mind that there are life lessons to be learned buried beneath her lyrics.
With this guide we will analyze Swift’s lyrics as she gives us men a close-up look at one of the world’s greatest mysteries; the female mind.
The first track to hit the review deck will be the hit single entitled “Innocent.” With this record we will learn what happens when you piss Taylor Swift off by embarrassing her. Instead of being immature about the Kanye West incident in 2009, Swift took the high road and wrote a song about the events of that fateful night. With lyrics that go like this : “It’s okay, life is a tough crowd…32, and still growin’ up now…Who you are is not what you did” it is obvious that even at the age of 20, Swift is a mature adult. What does that mean to us guys? It means that respectable women, such as Taylor Swift prefer maturity over immaturity. Note taken.
Next on the list of Swfit’s brand new tracks is the song entitled ‘Dear John.’ Now gentlemen, this track is one that you would absolutely not want written about you. On this Speak Now track, Taylor Swift opens up about the rumored relationship she had with John Mayer. The lesson we can take from this is quite simple. Swift mentions “And I lived in your chess game,but you changed the rules every day” and it is clear that she does not want to be a pawn in some player’s dating game.
Lastly, let’s take a look at the track “Back To December.” Now guys, this song IS the one that you want written about you. On this track, Taylor Swift does something that most women simply can’t; she admits that she is wrong and apologizes! If there were ever a track you wished to be the recipient of, it would be this one. Directed at her boyfriend from last year, Taylor Lautner, Swift expresses the deep regret of their break-up.
I hope this guide has done opened up the eyes of all you guys out there who are secretly rocking out to Taylor Swift. Hopefully some lessons can be learned as you continue to listen to the entire album.
For now, that is all I have for the man’s guide to Taylor Swift’s Speak Now album. As I stated earlier, L. Arner usually covers the reviews but I figured I would give it a shot. Tell me your thoughts on my review by sending in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
