Over the past few years, Taylor Swift has become the queen of love songs, writing lyrics about relationships that everyone seems to relate to — the good, the bad, and the teen angsty. To celebrate her 23rd birthday, we've chosen a Taylor Swift tune to suit every kind of relationship, pointing out why her lyrics may seem to hit so close to home. While some of her hits can get a little cheesy, we still love singing along when we're into a new guy or just getting over someone. With songs that cover the initial butterflies, bitter breakups, sad endings, and forever devotion, here are 13 (of course) Taylor Swift songs for every relationship status.
I'm a sucker for listening to all my new favorite songs on YouTube, so when I saw this neat tip on Lifehacker, I wanted to share it with all of you! To get started you'll need Firefox and this Greasemonkey extension. The Googlesystem Blog explains that this Greasemonkey script creates a section titled "lyrics" below the video's description, and will display them when expanded (you'll notice different lyrics services for the song). So now when you see Scarlett Johansson's new music video, you'll be able to sing along!
You know you've done it. You're listening to a song, you have no idea what's being sung, but later as you sing it to yourself you realize you've supplied some creative lyrics. Classic example? "Blinded By the Light," which, if you believed everyone who sang it, includes the line "Wrapped up like a douche." Here's a heavy metal example. I've never heard of Children of Bodom, but a couple fans have, and this is what they came up with.
