    Depends on the song... Obla Di Obla Da (I like this song, but an example)

    La la how the life goes on

    Buys a twenty carat golden ring
    Takes it back to Molly waiting at the door
    And as he gives it to her she begins to sing

    I don't see how arguments based on vocal talent or lyrical quality are relevant.

    Well there is a debate on whether or not Taylor is a fad or will last. I do not think she is a fad, but the others are arguing the Beetles never did their share of bubble gum pop.

    Even though I've never heard any of her stuff before and I don't plan on it. That is quite the achievement for a 22 year old.. I guess? My music tastes don't leave Theatrical scores and classical. So you can consider me an old fart.

    I know plenty of young people who buy music. Some do it to support the artist, others do it because they like having the album in physical form (+ sometimes you get other goodies)

    I'd like to boil down to a choice, not a rehash

    I'm not sure if your second verse is meant as a polar opposite to the first, or another example of seemingly stupid lyrics. I find it really pretty personally
    My Cracked articles, writing blog, and Twitter.

    The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.

    It's a wonderful song. The lyrics are no means a work of Shakespeare though.

    Never listened to a single song by her and I'm not really interested in hearing any either.

    Preordered deluxe edition.

    Though to be fair I don't remember the last time I bought a non-jpop album that's not by Taylor Swift.

    Not a fan at all, but glad that people can still achieve such things. Great that the piracy idiots can be shut up for a while, however they'll probably now use this as justification to sue more people for 5000 times the worth of content stolen.

    My sister got me this for my birthday (mostly because I told her to). Such a good album.

    She really does my heart swoon. ^_^

    My morning radio show has an on-air personality that calls her Taydolf Switler, while another guy is in love with "T Swizzle". Love her or hate her I guess.

    Aww, what a nice sister /jealous

    And yeah, this was a great album. I wish Ronan had been included though.

    I didnt mind her till that "we are never getting back together song" i didnt even know it was her and thought it was absolute garbage. Turn the radio over everytime someone plays her now.
