Music Mondays - #2 Taylor Swift's Mine

I was going to share a song by Loreena McKennitt today, but in honor of the release of Taylor Swift's newest album, Speak Now, today, I decided to share one of the songs from it.

Mine was released several weeks ago as as single. Being a fan of Taylor Swift, I quickly downloaded it, and instantly had a new favorite song.

I have not always been a fan of Taylor Swift, though. In fact, it wasn't until last year that I started liking her. Before then I had thought she was just another annoying teen star - like Miley Cyrus. It wasn't until I really listened to the lyrics of Love Story that I began to like her.

And said, marry me Juliet
You'll never have to be alone
I love you and that's all I really know
I talked to your dad, go pick out a white dress
It's a love story baby just say yes.

I thought it was cool that Romeo talked to her dad, and that the song ended with them engaged instead of just getting together. I liked Love Story that that was "the only one."

Well, one lead to two, which led to three and the next thing I know I like her entire two albums and am anxiously counting down the days till her third is released - something I haven't done since And Winter Came... by Enya came out two years ago.

And, also like Enya, it's not the just music I like about Taylor Swift - I like her. She does what she loves because she loves it and because she loves it she does well and is successful. She sings about boys a little too much for my taste, but she says she doesn't need a boy friend and is happy single - she also won't put up with dating jerky boys. She's 5' 11" and still isn't afraid to wear tall heels - something I'm shy of doing at just 5' 8"!

All and all she is a huge inspiration to me. She's far from perfect, I know, but I admire her attitude.
