Are You a Swiftie?
Sep 17th, 2023 at 2:50pm
 
     Taylor Swift has taken the world by storm.  She is certainly the current "it" girl.  Are you swept up in this wave of mass adoration?
      I'm not.  I think she has a good voice, she's reasonably pretty, and seems like a good person.  I don't hate her or her songs but I don't purchase any of her music and generally don't listen to it.  I wish her continued success and a long and happy life.  But I honestly don't see what the fuss is about. 
     So am I wrong?  Am I missing something?  Is she really all that?

I wouldn't be able to name a song of hers if I was asked, and wouldn't be able to identify her as the artist if I did hear one.

I have absolutely nothing against Taylor Swift or people who enjoy her music.  It's just never been something I heard in passing and took much interest in, or had any desire/curiosity to seek out.

I don't particularly like or dislike Taylor Swift's music or have anything against it. It's just not the music I listen to very often.

That being said, I do think that her music has improved in recent years, and maybe that's why so many people like it.

Once, Toivo and Eino were building a house, but as Toivo worked, he would occasionally throw a nail over his shoulder. When Eino asked why he was being so wasteful, he said, “The heads are on the wrong side!” Eino looked at him and said, “You dummy, those are for the other side of the house!”

I think for the most part I don't listen to any up to date music. Usually the select good stuff that remains after the passage of a decade is decent.

The music is fine, but I think the cult-like nature of the fan base really freaks me out

Let me know when she makes a cover of Dark Side of the Moon. I still wont listen but at least I will respect her taste in music.

I have nothing against her but for me music died in the mid to late 2000's. If we include Muse maybe a few years longer. Im getting old...I know I dont look it, but I feel it. Like butter scraped over too much bread.
