Taylor Swift, at a young age, has indelibly made her mark on music, be it country или pop. Besides that, she has impacted me. To be perfectly honest, I'm not a Taylor быстрый, стремительный, свифт superfan, (Don't send me hate mail) I don't have every (or any) album. I don't play guitar, and if I did, I wouldn't have started because of her. Ты won't find posters of her in my room, What Ты will find is a стол письменный, стол with a hutch. In that hutch lies a binder full (to use a Romneyism) of lyrics to songs I've written. That's where Taylor comes in. I've always loved music. My grandparents say I used to sing kids songs in the car and know all the words, totally on pitch, but Ты couldn't look at me или else I'd stop. I cried at applause the first time I went onstage. My uncle is a freelance songwriter, as a sort of hobby, and he and I wrote my first one together on a plane back from Hawaii about my vacation (entitled Paradise) when i was about 8. Then I sang, and pretty soon Taylor быстрый, стремительный, свифт hit the big time. I thought her songs were good. Then I turned 13, started 7th grade, and had some trouble in Pre-Algebra, One day, feeling so confused, opened my math notebook and wrote my first real song, Swimming and Sinking. That followed with others, and I've been Письмо for over a год now. I have several inspirations, each one for a different reason. Taylor is one of my inspirations because her Музыка has lyrical substance and is not wrought with effects and mixing so they meaning of the song isn't conveyed, weather it's pop или country. People may view Taylor быстрый, стремительный, свифт as a lovesick teenager who keeps getting her сердце broken by celebrity beaus. There have been numerous speculation about which song is about which boyfriend, but that is irrelevant. I think this for the same reason I seldom Показать any of my songs to anyone. Чтение my lyric book merits the same intrusion as Чтение a diary. So as far as I'm concerned, whatever song Taylor wrote about whatever boy is her business. What she gives to us is resonant material. What she gives to me is inspiration.
