Clip this card - it might be the only one where I say these words: I love a Taylor Swift song. Blank Space is too catchy to deny and the beat is hypnotizing. It's filled with all of my favorite cliches and I was singing along from the very first listen. Just a little issue I have with it, I had to triple check that Lorde didn't write this. I wonder what TSwift's newest best friend thinks of this track that reeks of Pure Heroine in the best way. Lindsay Zoladz of Vulture describes Blank Space as "a good deal peppier than anything on Pure Heroine but has a rhythm that reminds me so much of its lead-off track "Team" that I find myself wanting to add a "... you can watch from your window" at the end of every verse." The resemblance doesn't make me hate it, I just don't want Swift ripping off the artists I genuinely love. Let's hope this is as far as she goes. Anyone else hear the similarities?
Taylor Swift Channels Lorde in New Single
My co-workers at the office are obsessed with Taylor Swift and have been begging me to watch this video. Now that I've seen this.. man, she changes her sound a lot with every album! It must be interesting to see her in concert.
play what you like as often as you like and forget the idiots! I think I'll make a Nickel Back, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber playlist lol
@drlizardo I completely agree! Pop music tends to 'borrow' from all other genres and turn it into something popular and easily consumable, but I just found this one really obvious. Especially since Swift is now such close friends with Lorde hahah But yeah, I have unapologetically been playing this on repeat since I first discovered it :)
