“Sweeter Than Fiction” – NEW Taylor Swift Single!

Taylor Swift has been on a roll lately. I have no idea how this talented lady finds the time to do anything in between her busy schedule, yet every week I hear that she’s done something new.

 

The Nashville-born, country-pop diva has released a new single called “Sweeter Than Fiction”. The song was written for singer Paul Potts who rose to fame on the show Britain’s Got Talent. Potts’ autobiography will soon be out in early November, and this song was produced by Simon Cowell and recorded by Swift for the movie One Chance.

 

However, while some like the song, others are claiming it’s too “cheesy”. I happen to agree that the lyrics aren’t Swift’s strongest- especially after listening to songs of hers like “State of Grace” and “Everything has Changed”, where the lyrics were the most impressive aspect of the songs. That being said, the song is still fun and catchy. I read that it sounded like it was inspired from the 80’s, and the more I listened, the more I could imagine it being played in a 80’s rom-com.

 

As for the lyrics, the song was specifically written for Potts’ autobiography. An autobiography about a man who went from working as a grocery store clerk to a winning singing sensation on a hit TV show. So yeah, the lyrics are going to sound a little corny, but I think that was the point. It was to express how this man is living the dream. Which can seem corny since we tend to only think about perfect endings in stories and movies.

 

The bouncy rock tune is very unlike the sound we are used to from Swift, so I think that people are a little taken aback from it. It definitely takes some getting used to. I even had to listen to it a few times before I could really enjoy it, and while it’s not my favourite song of hers, it’s not too bad.
