"I have just been more than a little suspect of all the trades since the Willy (Scott Williamson) cash grab. That one left such a bad taste in my mouth that even a 1985 Dom Pérignon couldn't cleanse it." -- Creek14
Her music is growing and changing. Her songs don't all sound like "Teardrops on My Guitar" and "Tim McGraw" anymore. A perfect example is "We Will Never Ever Get Back Together". Personally I don't like it, but I am not going to shred a songwriter for trying to step out of her box, trying to do something different (except when KISS and Niel Young tried to add a disco sound, that sucked).
What if this is as good as it gets?
sorry to interupt the Taylor Swift death duel, but back to the original topic (and if the question is, what kind of music makes you cringe, how can one argue what makes me cringe? how would they know?)
Most "deep" heavy metal, ie megadeath, slayor, pantera and a slew of others I've heard friends listen to in the past.
This is my favorite statement in the whole thread.Taylor Swift isn't bad because she's popular, she's bad because her music sucks and is fluff for teenage girls.
I don't like it, therefore the only reason it sells is because teenage girls buy fluff.
Really- so if that were true, I guess all teenage fluff records must sell a million in a week. Right.
Taylor Swift strikes a chord with her audience. Her combination of lyrics and melody move people. It is pop music with a little country thrown in.
It isn't Led Zeppelin, but for what it is, it's pretty good.
