There are times when you want to say something, you want to burst out your feelings but you fail to do so, may be due to some external fear or something and at last the feelings remain trapped in your body and started hurting you, exactly that’s what Taylor is trying to convey to her audience that it is ok to burst out your feelings sometime, she even spoke of various methods which people can follow like writing down a journal, or maintaining a diary, it is really beautiful to see how a young singer like Taylor Swift had bought this issue in a such a beautiful manner through her album. Talking about the album most of her songs if you listen to it carefully you will find that were based on the same theme which we discussed now. I would recommend people to listen to this album, and trust me you will enjoy every piece of the songs.
Released in 2010, 14 tracks, 69 min
The album, Speak Now is Taylor Swift’s third album. The passion with which she sings the songs on the album is beautiful; although, you can tell that she's more passionate about some of the songs than the others. The lyrics are very descriptive, capable of painting strong images and feelings to the mind of her listeners. Just by listening to her sing, you could relate to what she felt at the time the track was recorded – The album described the person that the artiste is and the things that she cared about. It made the stage for all her present and future albums. Although she was young at the time of the release of this album, she proved to know a lot about emotional trauma and romantic turmoil and transformed all the pain and knowledge into hit tracks.
A Country Artist Finally Breaks Into the Mainstream Here in the Philippines After the Genre Disappeared from Local Radio for More than a Decade
Taylor Swift’s “Love Story” was a big radio and video hit here in the Philippines but I think its major drawback was that among the masses, that was the only song they knew of Taylor’s. Although her first two albums Taylor Swift and Fearless had several hits in other countries, aside from “Love Story”, probably only “You Belong With Me” had sizeable radio airplay that was known to people outside of Taylor’s very loyal army of young girl fans. At that time, if you’d do a random survey on the street and asked people what hit of Taylor Swift they knew, I bet 90% would say “Love Story” – and that’s it. So when she had her first concert here to support Speak Now, her third studio album, many people were asking why she had such expensive tickets when she “only” had two hits? Nevertheless, her army of fans gobbled up all those stupendously expensive tickets and her show was sold out much to everyone’s astonishment! I know they were stupendously expensive because I bought tickets to that show LOL! I paid roughly US$145 and I was already in Lower Box! And my seat was sooooo bad, all I could see was Taylor’s backside throughout the show! Anyhow, at that time, Taylor was still classified as a country artist, and it’s very rare for American country artists to make a dent here. You’d have to go back one generation to come up with a bevy of country artists that ruled local Filipino radio (Kenny Rogers, Dolly Parton, John Denver, Crystal Gayle – were very popular here). In my opinion, some of the songs in Speak Now sound so country, I was surprised her fans still liked it. Of course, the more I knew about Taylor, I realized that her country identity was just one part of her whole image. This girl simply can’t be pigeon-holed.
