Everyone knows Grammy winner Taylor Swift. In her Music career, which she started at a young age, she released songs in various genres to us. Although she has been in the music industry for years, she is still one of the most talked about names. Swift is one of the best career planners today. She knows very well what to do when and where. For example, although my favorite album is Reputation, since the album does not reflect her personality, she spent that period only with touring and achieved a very successful result.
Despite being one of the world’s top album sellers, she has many underrated songs. Let’s take a look at the songs that I think are underrated.
The most political song Swift has ever recorded, Miss Americana & The Heartbreak Prince, is a song written with eloquence. It makes excellent use of metaphors. The entire song is symbolic; it has both literal and figurative interpretations. The song’s first sense is that two high school students realize, after going through some difficult times, that the glamorous American high school life shown in movies is a fiction.
The plot revolves around the time that Swift got engaged with her boyfriend after the 2016 presidential election in the United States. This is Swift’s first song that explicitly criticizes American politics (particularly Donald Trump and the Republicans), but it does so in a way that goes beyond simply saying “american dream is a lie” ; it also details her own despair and experiences during these events.
This song may be about anything other than a breakup. It’s likely that you were duped or that someone actually claimed to be you and when you’re so engrossed in them, they stop pretending. Leaving you to live with everything they’ve done to you, including the false hope, every touch that was a lie, and how your heart breaks every time you see them. Despite this, you continue to adore them.
A Getaway car is usually using by criminals leaving a crime scence. In the context of the song it’s to escape her ending relationship with some new. The new one being the getaway car. “I wanted to leave him I needed a reason” My understanding is that she was unintentionally using Tom Hiddleston to get out of her relationship with Calvin Harris, but she finally fell for Joe and felt bad about the short time she had with Tom.
She references this in the song, “Think about the place where you first met me”. This phrase can be literal, they met at the Met Gala ball, and symbolic. “The ties were black, the lies were white/and shades of grey in candlelight.” He met Taylor when she was still with her boyfriend and she needed a way out. She was not entirely honest about the whole situation hence the lies.
There’s a guy who is in a relationship but he’s trying to flirt with Taylor and she’s not going to let him do that with her because she knows he has a girlfriend. She was once in this girl’s position – a guy cheated on her with another girl – and she doesn’t want to be the girl he cheats with.
I assume it is about the person who picks you up when he needs you and then drops you off the next day when he no longer requires your services. Taylor explained, “It’s about this guy who turned out to not be who I thought he was.” She’s fed up with him showing up whenever it’s convenient for him.
Taylor begins by stating that the majority of her songs are laments for failed relationships. She continues, “I’m not happy with the never-ending stream of controversies and gossip that has plagued my career.” As a result of her feelings of not belonging, she wants to flee to the lakes.
This is most likely a reference to the Lake District, a well-known British national park that Taylor visited prior to recording this song. She believes that, like the great English Romantic poets, she can better express her imagination here. Despite the fact that she will not be heard from, she says that it will be a safe place for her to be herself.
This is a true crime song that tells the story of a heinous assault on Este’s husband’s life. “Este’s a friend of mine/… it smells like infidelity” means Este’s husband is cheating on her, but she doesn’t have the evidence he does. Este eventually vanished, and “mistress moved in.”
“I ain’t letting up until the day I die,” she declares. She sets out to fix the issue with her plan in place, and there has been “no crime” with “nobody.” This is a song that tells the story we’ve always wanted to tell. If you’re a fan of true crime, you’ll notice that it’s very similar to other cases you’ve seen.
