Back to December - Taylor Swift
I love listening to taylor swift and all of her songs. I like watching the videos that she puts out for every single as well. "back to december" is a great song with good lyrics and rhythms, but the music video was okay. more could have been done to make it a great video like getting a tanned-skinned guy to play the male role, so taylor's lyric, "I miss your tan skin..." would have made a bigger impact, or maybe showing some flashbacks showing why taylor needed to write the letter. just some ideas. overall, I love the song, I love taylor, but I just like the video. "like" if you agree.
Back to December
Um...nothing really HAPPENED in that video. There are random shots of Taylor alone and her ex-boyfriend alone and then it randomly starts snowing in her house. This is most definitely NOT as good as her other ones, mostly because it possesed no genuine storyline. I mean, seriously, it's a FIVE MINUTE SONG, so do something!!!
Taylor: It's time to write your Sgt. Pepper's
Look at all the thumbnails of TS's videos. That says it all. It's Taylor's face in close-up. It's Taylor's face as she lies on a bed. It'sTaylor's face looking pensive. It's Taylor's face looking nerdy. It's Taylor's face crying. Are you bored of this review's repetitive nature? Then you should be bored by Taylor and her videos.
I know I'm not in the demographic that eats up anything Taylor bleats out. I can respect her for writing her own stuff. But Taylor, it's time to write your Sgt. Pepper's. Time to change it all up, leave the safety of writing about boys and say something else. Be an artist who takes risks.
I also respect that she found a niche and fills it for that audience like no one else can. Us older people complain about her, in large part, because we see the potential. We see where someone like that could go. If she wanted to, she could be like Bob Dylan if she started singing about real pain that didn't have to do with boys boys boys.
One other thing I respect is her decency. If I had a daughter, I'd like her to look up to TS as an image of modesty, decency and humility. But these things do not a legendary music-writer make. Taylor, you need the last element: Music that says something (else).
Come on Taylor. Your label would let you sneeze on a record and release it at this point. So take a risk and write this generation's anthem. You could actually do it.
