Taylor Swift is a singer-songwriter of pop-music. Although she got her start on country radio, she is a pop artist. Her songs are better than that of her contemporaries (Katie Perry, Lady Gaga, Ke$ha). They are catchy and fun. Will she ever be confused with Radiohead or John Prine or Neil Young...no, but I prefer her to Karen Carpenter, Madonna, Bread and a thousand other pop artists. My daughter loves Taylor Swift, and I am OK with that. I would prefer her to love classic rock, but Taylor Swift will have to do.
What if this is as good as it gets?
Well gosh, I guess if Pavement had the Beatles marketing, they'd sell as much.
It's tough to argue with the record store guy. Only he knows what is real.
You worked at Camelot in Eastgate Mall I think. You had the orange hair and the Husker Du t-shirt. Huey Lewis was garbage but man, Frozen Ghost rocked. I know you.
Yeah, Taylor Swift sells so many records because she's THAT much better than every other artist. It's not because she's appealing to teenage girls, because I can't even order a Papa Johns pizza without her face plastered on the box, because you generally can't get away from her at all.
It's because she's the BEST artist of this generation. It's gotta be right?
Rolling stone gave her last album four stars. I dunno...do they do that because of the pizza box?
It's neat to be the record store guy- hey, we've all done it. But to dismiss someone as crap when they are doing something that nobody else has done...and then to say it's only because her picture is on a pizza box. Was Eminem on a pizza box? Adele?
