Song 70: Taylor Swift – Delicate
Artist: Taylor Swift
When I first started this project I have to admit I didn’t think I’d be writing a post about Taylor Swift or the #1 trending song on YouTube. If I’m being honest I didn’t know that songs trended on YouTube. Released about a day ago the song already has 13 million views songs. The speed at which art can be consumed today on such a global scale is truly mindblowing to me. I’ve never doubted her talent, but it’s incredible how much attention she gets so quickly. I think about someone like Reuben and the Dark that I highlighted in the last post in their song only having around 6 thousand views after 2 weeks. In any case, this song is pretty catchy. Listening to the lyrics I was curious if they reflected anything personal for her or if it was just something she thought was relatable to a lot of people. Also, while it doesn’t take away from the talent that she has the lyrics did make me wonder if she wrote it herself. From my quick Google search, it looks like she was at least partially involved in the songwriting which is cool to see.
365 New Tunes is a project inspired by a tweet from the band Stars on December 31st, 2017 encouraging people to listen to a new song every day of the next year.
