and of course, we all know it will sell 1M its first week. Or damn near close or a little over. She's extremely popular.
Love the song! Totally her style! Shake shake shake shake! Best of luck in the pop world taylor!
Haven't listened based on what I've read I don't think I want too not a fan of rap, just wondering can you guys hear the trumpets in the song, and if so where in the song can you hear them the best, I want to hear the trumpets but I don't want to listen to the song.
I think it's hella catchy!!! I've only listened once and it's already stuck in my head! Idk how it'll do at pop radio but they seem to be digging that style right now so hopefully it's a big hit for her!
Tried to listen twice to the song but was not able to get through the song yet. If it was not for her popularity doubt this woul be a hit.
Haha! I just told my 2 grandkids that some Carrie fans like TS's new song/video. The 9 yr old shuddered, and the 12 yr old said "that's crazy!" Again -- I have not stated my opinion. Certainly a learning experience for me -- thought they would like it since it's seems so immature (to me). They still think it's for "young kids". They turned on Perry's "Firework" video…then Blown Away… #ProudNana
This song is 100% pop (as in no futute country remix,) This song is not going to appear on any country charts right?
Carrie's connection with Tedder may stem from the fact that he's from Tulsa, and is related to the Sons of Sylvia - but his more usual musical association is also with the Pop world.
Taylor's new single is co-written with Max Martin and Shellback - who, of course, were the team behind a couple of the best known singles on her last album. I don't think those lead singles were typical of the last album, which had a more alternative feel to some of the songs. Hence, I agree, it may be premature to judge the album as a whole on this. However, Martin and Shellback have around seven cuts this time - so the album is certainly going more in their direction.
Taylor also has two co-writes with US rocker Jack Antonoff, and one with English singer, Imogen Heap. Both those artists would be considered alternative.
I believe Taylor has only one solo write this time
I think it's catchy. Vocally, if I didn't know it was Taylor and I heard this on the radio I wouldn't have recognized her voice.
^^oh the joys of auto-tune and technology :-)
The new single sounds very far from the types of music I'm interested in, so the best thing I can do is not try to evaluate it musically, and leave it to those with more feel for that style.
The lyrics though are here:
Taylor Swift - Shake It Off Lyrics
An interesting point is that she seems to be addressing some of the frequent complaints of her detractors, especially here:
"I go on too many dates
But I can't make them stay
At least that's what people say"
And in the refrain
"the haters gonna hate, hate, hate"
It strikes me as a bit simplistic, and less insightful than some of her songs - but I'm sure the note of defiance will resonate with many of her fan base.
Someone should work some technology magic and upload an instrumental verision of the song thanks to faraway I know that the song is repetitive seriously based on the lyrics Taylor, Max and the other guy used Shake/shake it off way too much. I want to judge the trumpets in this song, but I don't want to hear the rap, the autotune, et . Etc.
