So, I’m dropping a Taylor Swift song that I really can’t get enough of; mainly because I think the video is hilarious and also because this past weekend in Seattle I was around a 7yr old girl who put the song on repeat every time we were in the car, lol. As some of you might know, Taylor is dropping her first true pop album on October 27th and ‘Shake It Off” is the lead single off of the album. To her credit, 1989 will be her 5th studio album and the first album to officially break away from the country-pop genre that we know her from. This song is what Taylor describes as her response to portions of her life that have all come under scrutiny in the media (her relationships, her live singing, her musical style, etc.). She’s been quoted as saying “When you live your life under that kind of scrutiny, you can either let it break you, or you can get really good at dodging punches. And when one lands, you know how to deal with it. And I guess the way that I deal with it is to shake it off.” Upon listening to the track, there’s no doubt on how pop driven it is. The chorus is extremely catchy and I found myself singing along to it after hearing it for the first time. Oh and as a bonus, I added a link from a Transylvania University Fraternity (Delta Sigma Phi), who lip syncs this song throughout their dorm! FYI – Taylor saw this video and invited all of the guys and a date to her concert that will be stopping in their area. Happy listening and watching!
