Sorry, Like Taylor All Right, But...
By St. Clair King
I don't understand why "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" is so popular like it is. In fact, I absolutely hate this song. The statement "I Am Never Ever Getting What's So Great About This Song" seems to fit the bill.
For one thing, "WANEGBT" is once again ANOTHER song Taylor Swift wrote about some stupid breakup (surprise, surprise). She has more than enough of those already. At 22 years old, Taylor should have discovered by now that there's a whole lot more to life than just boys and your exes. Again, I'm not hating on Taylor, but it is quite annoying (and gives you a bad image) when at least 4/5 of your songs deal with the same old, poor-pitiful-me-you-broke-my-heart-you're-no-good topic over and over again. She has so much more potential than this.
Secondly, the lyrics are very immature and repetitive - "I hate you, we break up, you call me, I love you. Weeeeeeeee are never ever ever ever...getting back together. Like, ever." "WANEGBT" sounds like something either a little kid or a bratty teenage drama queen wrote, instead of a grown-up woman.
Thirdly, classifying "WANEGBT" as country is like saying real country singers like George Strait and Miranda Lambert are heavy metal. This song is pure POP, and nowhere near country.
Lastly, regarding the video, what on Earth do animals have to do with a break up? Are Taylor and her band making a music video, or are they auditioning for "Sesame Street" or "Bear In The Big Blue House?"
Again, as I have previously mentioned, Taylor Swift is so much better than this. She has a lot of talent and potential and really should not waste them on a bunch of songs about getting her heart broken. There are many more topics to write about (like good relationships, falling in love, your family, friends, and just life), Taylor. Stop writing every song about some guy dumping you in the street and be more original. Please have more variety in your songs (like you did with your debut album and songs you wrote for movies).
