All right, I’m going to stick my neck out: I am a Taylor Swift fan. I’m not usually fond of pop-country, but Taylor Swift has real song-writing talent, a beautiful voice, and an appealing sincerity to her: she writes what she believes, and if she slips into blandness, as she occasionally does, it’s because she’s innocent, not because she’s insincere. As she matures, she’ll probably do better work than she’s doing now, but the work she’s doing now is plenty good enough. Take this song, with an emotional rush of a melody and a heartfelt narrative lyric that climaxes with an unexpected happy ending. I honestly don’t get how anyone could resist it.
