It’s hard to keep track of all the singles and songs Taylor is releasing these days. She is a true superstar in music. There is nobody bigger in any genre right now that her and she just keeps the music churning out and her fans can’t get enough.
Billboard recent changed how they rank the songs on the country charts. Instead of just focusing on radio airplay they’re taking into account all the factors that affect music today including digital downloads and plays on Internet radio and similar channels.
Basically what that means is that Taylor has both of the top spots on the country charts this week and this song, Begin Again, is at #10. That’s a debut at #10 on the charts.
This is officially Taylor’s third single from the new record. I’m sure you’ve heard it but let’s listen again.
Begin Again – Taylor Swift
The song is good. You know, I always start out these Taylor Swift song reviews by saying that I’m not Taylor’s target demographic. What I’ve always respected about her though is that she knows who she is and who her fans are. She doesn’t try to win everybody over. I mean, she’s not telling everyone else not to listen to her music, but she writes about what is happening to her and that’s great.
This song is actually interesting. I think people of all ages can relate. The song is about a girl that’s just gotten out of a relationship. Well, she’s been out of it for a while and now she’s starting to get back into the dating game. She’s met someone new and she’s going out on the date and getting to know him. As they spend time together she starts to realize that this guy is interesting and he seems to really care about her.
There is hope for the future.
It can begin again.
