Taylor Swift Has The Grammy For Album Of The Year All Wrapped Up

Come January next year, Taylor shouldn’t have another moment like this:

Looking at the albums that came out between October 1st 2014 and September 20th 2015, nothing compares to the ground breaking and record making 1989. The album was the first album in ten years to make one million in its first week, and currently has spawned four hit singles, with three of them going number one.

Looking over the past year the most likely competitors to 1989 could be Sonic Highways, Foo Fighters; Uptown Special, Mark Ronson; To Pimp A Butterfly, Kendrick Lamar; and Rebel Heart, Madonna.

So can we already pencil in a win for Taylor to avenge her RRRRandom Access Memories moment?


Taylor Swift’s ‘1989’

A few of my favourite tracks on ‘1989’

.01 Welcome To New York – Taylor is so on point here in saying how inspirational New York can be. Ryan Tedder’s work on this one isn’t lost, and it’s a great introduction to what Taylor called her first “documented” pop album. To those saying that it’s no Sinatra or Jay-Z anthem, I don’t think she was ever trying to out do the greats. Also love the shout out to the LGBT community.

.03 Style – This is almost like two songs have been put together, as the first minute of the song is a snooze fest, while the chorus is one of my favourite moments of the album.

.04 Out Of The Woods – Easily the best track of the album. Got me and many other super excited for 1989. One of three tracks Taylor did with Jack Antonoff, lead guitarist of the rock band Fun, and he has helped her take her synthpop ventures to the next level.

.07 I Wish You Would – This is about Harry, right? Because when ever I listen to Taylor I automatically think it’s about a recent ex-boyfriend, but it’s not always the case. Every song on 1989 can’t be about Harry right?

.08 Bad Blood – It is well known by know that this is a dig at once friend Katy Perry, not a former boyfriend. She took things even further by including a picture of Grammy next the the song lyrics in the album booklet. For the record Grammy count is Taylor Swift 7, Katy Perry 0.

.10 How You Get The Girl – Feels like a mix of the old Taylor with the new Taylor. Nothing bad about that. More low-key than some of the other tracks, but after a few listens I came to appreciate it.
