Taylor Swift Drops Brilliant "Speak Now" Title Song From Upcoming Album and Storms the Charts

By October 5, 2010

Follow me on:

Taylor Swift has now laid down the challenge to all that would question her talent on "Speak Now," the title cut from her upcoming album. The first single "Mine" does feel like a misstep and a little dull for a first release, but this is something else entirely. The lyrics kick off as follows:

I am not the kind of girl
Who should be rudely barging in on a white veil occasion
But you are not the kind of boy
Who should be marrying the wrong girl

I sneak in and see your friends, and her snotty little family
All dressed in pastel
And she is yelling at a bridesmaid, somewhere back inside a room
Wearing a gown shaped like a pastry

The song is sweet, funny, bratty, and edgy all at the same time. Taylor Swift remains one of our most gifted young lyricists. The song is storming the iTunes digital sales charts sitting at #2 already in its first day of sales. The album Speak Now hits stores October 25, 2010.

Have been following her closely ever since the first time I heard her voice in last year’s summer holiday. She became such a big name in one year, something I find so incredible but also reasonable! Didn’t I have a great insight? ……Her achivements at the same age as me inspires me to work hard and show the world my best side. I will keep on supporting her~~
