Review | Taylor Swift 1989 | prettylittlewriter

Apologies for being off the radar for a week or so, I've been having the time of my life down south in Devon for my niece's wedding.

I have been waiting for this day to come for months and finally it's here, the release of Taylor Swift's new pop album, 1989. I love Taylor incredibly and I knew I'd like anything she releases, but I wasn't sure when she announced this album was going to be pop instead of country, but my God she is killing it!

I thought I'd do a little review on the tracks and let you in on my personal favourites from the album!

I have found it particularly hard to select only a few favourites from every single one of Taylor's albums, and 1989 is no exception. Every time I think I've found my all time favourite, she comes along with another epic track.

1. Wildest Dreams
This is probably my current favourite from the album as it fits my personal life right now. The song is all about being with someone/meeting someone and sharing something special, and hoping that they remember you, even if it's only in their wildest dreams.
'He's so tall and handsome as hell, he's so bad but he does it so well, and when we had our very last kiss, my last request is, say you'll remember me standing in a nice dress staring at the sunset babe'

2. Blank Space
This song is all about getting into something with a guy and knowing that it is either going to be incredible or just burn down in flames but not even caring. I love this song because it's showing that Taylor knows exactly what she is doing when she gets into a relationship. 
'Saw you there and I thought, Oh my God, look at that face, you look like my next mistake'

3. Wonderland
A bonus track on the album, this song is all about falling into a kind of Wonderland with a guy; in their own little world just for them even after being warned by other people that it is a bad idea. 
'Didn't they tell us don't rush into things? Didn't you flash your green eyes at me? Didn't you calm my fears with that Cheshire cat smile?'

4. New Romance
Another bonus track, a very upbeat anthem all about not caring what others think and being different and young and reckless.
'Baby, we're the new romantics, come on, come along with me, heartbreak is the national anthem, we sing it proudly'

5. How You Get The Girl
Another really fun and upbeat song, all about the things a guy can do to win over that special girl. 
'I want you for worse or for better, I would wait forever and ever'

6. Shake It Off
Most of you will have heard this track already, and it is one of my favourites because it is just such a fun song and makes me want to dance whenever I hear it!
'Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play, and the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate'

7. I Know Places
Quite a dark track telling the story of a couple being hunted by what can be assumed as paparazzi, and finding places to hide and enjoy their romance.
'Cause they got the cages, they got the boxes and guns, they are the hunters, we are the foxes, and we run'

8. You R In Love
And finally, another bonus track that is all about finding an amazing love and all the little things that let you know that you are in love.
'Morning, his place, burnt toast, Sunday, you keep his shirt, he keeps his word'
