I don't agree with the "Tone Deaf" part of it. The rest pretty much describes what my article is set to prove.
This is going to make me a hella lot of enemies in the girl department, but I gotta say it. Taylor Swift. I feel that, if any woman gets soo much media attention that she could sing about anything and people would listen to her, and shes going around singing about heart break, and longing for guys she can't get. I feel like it's just helping other teenage girls to be dependent for life on the guy in their lives. i find her songs extremely demoralizing., and I stopped listening to her a while ago. when you realize that ALL she sings about is guys, and crushes, and LOOOVEEE, it's just disgusting. I like Pink! no matter how many songs she sings about love, and heart break, she has more songs on female empowerment. But I feel that Taylor has more of an opportunity among teenage girls to say "Don't get hung up on a dude. He's just a guy. Theres more to life"
Not just that, All of her songs sound the same. They seem like they have the same chords played in a different progression..... Not so sure how talented someone is when they can't even be original....
I'm not telling you to stop listening to her songs, They've just been annoying.Shes like this role model to a lot of these girls because she acts like such a goodie two shoes, but really her songs are like those silent killers that you never knew could be so harmful. All these girls are going to say to themselves, If men are SOOOOO important to my happiness, and mental well being, I must have the first man that I can find!!!!"
Now for the songs that I do LOVE about love. I'm a huge sucker for romantic songs, actually romantic songs with a side serving of lust.
Here they are, and I can't describe how I feel about them because you will see a part of me you do not want to see ;)

Please don't hate me for the Taylor Swift thing up there, Let me tell you: I was was a pretty big fan of hers for the longest time. I know how her fans feel, but I just don't any more.
