EDITORS’ NOTES

Taylor Swift has made her inspirations plain from the get-go, shouting out country superstar Tim McGraw in her sweetly twangy debut single. But as she's both matured and turned toward pop, her palette has broadened; her music pays homage to the sly confessionalism of Carly Simon, the sweet-and-sour kiss-offs of Linda Ronstadt, and the synth-pop splendor of Pat Benatar's “We Belong.”
