Dan Wilson on the sincerity of Taylor Swift

whatamarveloustune13:

The A.V. Club: How do you decide what songs are yours to sing and what songs are someone else’s?

DW: If I write it with someone else and they want to sing it, it’s for them. My philosophy for several years has been that if I’m writing a song and can’t imagine myself…

  • Question: Not sure I would've responded to that article like Tree Paine did. I mean, I know people (at least the ones with functioning brains) realize that it's satire, but her original tweet made it sound like she was responding to a "legitimate" tabloid article (I use the term loosely, obviously). I mean, that's probably the closest those wacko's have ever come to getting a reaction from a celebrity, and might embolden them to write more. - discussingtaylorswift
  • Answer:

    I think one satirical site is one thing, but millions of casuals on twitter and facebook believe every headline they read, so you have to deny that once people start reblogging it.

Whenever the name “Taylor Swift” is heard, people have the misconception of connecting her to an overrated teen sensation. Someone who made her way to fame by getting a role on Disney channel. Someone who beguiled thirteen year old girls by winning the X Factor. Someone who posted a video on Youtube and got discovered by another musical sensation. “Oh yeah, Taylor Swift,’’ they say as they roll their eyes.

Seldom does the name “Taylor Swift” make them think of the girl who had a dream that she didn’t give up on since age twelve. The girl who, when finally getting signed by the biggest recording company, walked away because they didn’t let her write her own songs. The girl who assiduously kept going till she found someone who let her make her own music. The girl who knocked on every radio stations door until they gave her music a chance.

EDIT: Here is a story about it, written by someone who was there.

http://www.vh1.com/music/tuner/2014-04-17/ingrid-michaelson-concert/

wow, this was the venue for Ingrid’s private show last night….the Chapel at Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn - blocks from my old stomping grounds….I’ve never heard of any shows happening there.

No one posting about it seems to have spotted Taylor there, but there is at least one photo of her there.

Tree Paine clearing up more stupid rumors (x)

It’s a pretty big departure in style, in a good way, for Taylor’s publicist to be able to publicly just say that things are b.s.  But that’s really what people need, especially when literally anyone can make up anything now.It is probably a conscious decision they’ve made because they can get a big signal boost from fans immediately. Also….Tree Paine should know to call someone out by using the @ sign for the screenname @thenewsnerd,  rather than linking to his URL.

  • Question: @discussingtaylorswift, great points! & this is a testament to see how much Taylor is about artistic integrity & not about commercial/bigness. But there's also artists out there like U2 & other artists who've written hits & won grammys for them, but aren't about relationships. Songs like Beautiful Day, Waiting on the World to Change, Say, Gravity have won awards but aren't about relationships. Can Taylor resist commercializing & embrace artistic integrity more? If they can do it, why can't she? - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    She can and she will.

    EDIT: I just don’t know when.

  • Question: Tbh the "broadened subject matter" doesn't really surprise me, as it shouldn't surprise any of us, but mark my words; if there's is even one single "break up anthem" on the album, it'll be the one that most people talk about, and the one that gets the most air time. She can sing about a kid dying of cancer, people battling eating disorders, or being bullied, and nobody cares. She mentions a failed relationship one time and it ends up being front-page news. - discussingtaylorswift
  • Answer:

  • Question: I thought "broadened subject matter" quite clearly means she'll be writing about more than just love and relationships ? Right??! Please let it be so. - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    I’d say that there’s nothing else that can possibly mean.

  • Question: "OhSoSwiftly: 1:12 in the vblog are they really blurring a logo? really? [edit] a bunch of blurred logos throughout the video actually. Do we have to blame Diet Coke for this or what?" Your thoughts on this? - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    She gets a lot of money to be a “brand ambassador” so they probably dont want to show brands that they don’t have to.

    I remember on the Thanksgiving night Speak Now special, one of the magazines that a band member was holding was blurred out, and I knew it wasn’t a porn mag, so I wondered what it could be….eventually I assumed it was one of those unauthorized Taylor Swift full-length magazines you’d see on newsstands.   I guess they just didn’t want to give that an implied endorsement by showing it on national TV.

  • Question: What do you think it is about Taylor that has made people help her first week album sales to surpass one million copies for the past two albums? I know you say album sales don't matter, and I'm not asking this question as if they do. I'm just curious as to how in the world she does it? Compared to other pop stars like Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, or Beyonce who rarely sell half that amount in a week even though Taylor probably receives the most vocal hate? Actually compared to any artist, HOW!?!?! - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    "Why does she sell so well in the first week?"
    ————-

    It is a combination of a reputation of goodwill and loyalty to her fans, and her media approach in terms of hyping the first week but, most importantly, it is the fact she is uniquely positioned as an album artist, rather than a singles artist.

    She still has hit singles, but the underlying message of all the interviews she does and the hype that she gets implies that "you’re not getting the whole story if you’re not listening to the whole album." 

    And I think that is unique to her, at least in terms of current mainstream artists.

    EDIT: Anon adds:

    …..also the fact that she puts hidden messages in her lyrics. Like I said, it’s clever marketing but it’s starting to become old. It’s partially or mostly responsible for the massive scrutiny and magnifying glass put on her.

When I saw taylor typed “LOL”, i felt sad.
Why?  because, like me, she goes WAY back online….and she has always said “HAHAHA” all these years…..resisting “LOL” even when everyone else was doing it.   She held out for a long time.

  • Question: For the record I like WANEGBT but then again maybe because I was going through a bad break up at the time, and I like that one cover of WANEGBT that someone posted months ago by that one Disney Channel actress (Demi Lovato?) Also I'm not a teen girl so you can't say it's because of that. - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    You mean this.

  • Question: I've mentioned this countless of times...but if what possibly could be her best work was possibly mostly inspired by Harry, I don't know how I would feel about that. I may not know Harry but I don't see him as that much of an intriguing character. I hope this "broadened" subject matter is about other things besides relationships. - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    regarding subject matter:

    While I can’t envision her writing Bruce Springsteen and Mellencamp-type songs about people who have been screwed over by life and the system, I can totally envision her writing songs about metaphors about life itself the way U2 does.

    "Elevation" "City of Blinding Lights" and "Beautiful Day" are good examples of songs that are ultimately about love, but maybe its just the love of life.

    Taylor’s fans and life itself should inspire better songs than Harry ever could.
