I’m a nightmare dressed like a daydream

A couple of weeks ago, I considered handing in my “pop punk 4 life” card. Why? Because I listened to a Taylor Swift song – and I liked it.

I often say that I don’t like Taylor Swift. But, while I’ve never been her biggest fan, I haven’t always disliked her.

I actually didn’t mind “Love Story” or even “You Belong to Me” when they first came out. Catchy and cute, even if the lyrics didn’t have a lot of substance. But then I worked at a bookstore where we listened to Taylor Swift ALL DAY, EVERY DAY, and after that, I screamed whenever I heard one of her songs. Me + country = not the perfect combination (I must confess to having a soft spot for Carrie Underwood though).

That being said, it still hurts my heart a little that I like one of her songs. It’s hella catchy, though, and there are some good lines (i.e. the title of this post is one of the best lyrics I’ve heard in a straight-up pop song in a long time).

Luckily, the post-hardcore band Our Last Night released a cover a couple of days after I first listened to “Blank Space”.

So I’ll probably just listen to this version all the time and pretend like I didn’t download 1989 and I certainly haven’t spent the last two weeks sporadically listening to the original…
