Okay so I just saw the commercial for her upcoming perfume, and Enchanted was the theme song. Is this a hint that this might finally be the next single?
Sparks Fly disappointed I think, mostly due to the grave amount of momentum she had. I think the album lost a bit momentum too from last year, which is a huge shame. Anyways I hope she didnt close up the album yet, and will release Enchanted (after all its one of my favorite songs off the album.)
Not to mention what do yall think her Grammy chances are this season?October 4, 2011 at 3:57 pm #373839
Okay scratch that. I was just reading that Taylor is aiming for a 2012 release for her new album. The theme will be “Moving On”. She really could have squeezed out some more of Speak Now, what is with these females now in constantly releasing material every year.October 4, 2011 at 5:47 pm #373840
Taylor has consistently put out music every two years. I would have been shocked if she wasn’t realeasing an album this next year.
What’s disappointing was with how this album was handeled. Her sales were still excellent. There was no push for the current single at all.October 11, 2011 at 12:17 pm #373841

selling over a million copies in its first week. All 14 tracks on the
country-pop juggernaut were composed by Swift, and she made Hot 100 history by charting 11 songs off the album in a single week.

self-titled debut, released in 2006, holds the honor of longest-running

She followed that
up in 2008 with “Fearless,” a critically acclaimed set that established
her as a skilled songwriter and a procurer of hits, including “Love
Story,” “You Belong With Me” and “White Horse.” Swift’s “Fearless” is
the longest-running No. 1 album by a female country artist in 200
history. Not surprisingly, the 6-times platinum “Fearless” is the most

Taylor Swift is doing some major slayer on iTunes today. All 3 of her deluxe tracks from Speak Now are in the Top 10!November 9, 2011 at 10:11 am #373843
Taylor Swift is doing some major slayer on iTunes today. All 3 of her deluxe tracks from Speak Now are in the Top 10!
How fun that she’s going to build on the feat of charting all 14 of the original album’s tracks on the Hot 100.November 9, 2011 at 10:27 am #373844
Whaaat?? Not that I’m not happy for her, but what is going on with those deluxe tracks?August 14, 2012 at 6:15 pm #373845
Big fanatic of Miss Swift and all but “We Are Never Getting Back Together” or whatever it’s called is not good. I really thought she was going in the right direction with “Safe & Sound” but this is really a 180 downward spiral. I feel like she’s limiting herself singing these teeny bopper songs about breakups. I hope her upcoming album proves her higher than this.August 15, 2012 at 4:54 pm #373846
“We Are Never Getting Back Together” is just embarassing. Maybe the video just added to the cringeworthiness of it all. It’s terrible. What a sad state that this song is #1 on iTunes. If she gets nominated for an Album of the Year with this crap, I’ll give up on music.August 15, 2012 at 5:51 pm #373847
She’s quickly becoming the Avril Lavigne of country music. Too bad, so much potential in “Safe & Sound”, but she’s probably gonna continue to invest on these Kelly Clarkson-esque crap singles to keep her pop fanbase. Sad.August 15, 2012 at 6:18 pm #373848
I actually think the song is insanely catchy, but I don’t think it’s the right move for Taylor. I was hoping for more of a “Safe and Sound” direction for her, with a blend of country and alternative/pop to satisfy her wide-ranging fanbase. A song like this new one she has released is going to fall silent on many ears.
As a songwriter, she has done much better than this, so it’s kind of disapointing. But what do I know, the song will probably be the biggest single of the year and be grammy nominated.August 17, 2012 at 2:57 pm #373849
I like the first single, but I don’t think this should be the lead single off the new album since it just brings her nowhere and alienating possible new fans instead of attracting them. Oh well.August 17, 2012 at 3:55 pm #373850
I liked the first single, and I don’t think is going to hurt her at all. I’m going to buy her album, i’m pretty sure the album is going to be great. I just hope is better than “Speak Now” which I didnt’t enjoy at all. But I did love “Fearless”, so let’s wait until Oct 22nd, for RED.August 17, 2012 at 3:59 pm #373851
Her new song stinks.August 18, 2012 at 11:57 pm #373852
^I have to agree with you here.
I hate the direction she is apparently going in with the new record. Renaton is right that there was so much potential with Hunger Games, continuing with a similar sound would have given her a whole new credibility as an artist. These juvenile tracks about ended relationships get really old. The girl is how old now, 23? You’d expect she had grown by now and new experiences to write about.
