“Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift

I’ve been waiting and waiting for a new Taylor Swift song. I think I may have written earlier in the year about thinking that there may be a new album this year – I was right! She announces about two weeks ago that her new album was going to drop at the end of October (YAY!!). And she also released the first single on the album, which is this one – “Shake It Off.” Which I LOVE.

It’s like the next generation of “Mean.” She’s realized that there’s nothing she can do about what people are going to say about her. Yes, they’re mean, but what else is new? And what can you do besides let it roll like water off a duck’s back?

The chorus is my favorite, mostly because it cracks me up:

The player’s gonna play, play, play, play, play

And the hater’s gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate

Baby, I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake shake

Shake it off, shake it off

Heartbreaker’s gonna break, break, break, break, break

And the baker’s gonna bake, bake, bake, bake, bake

Baby, I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake

Shake it off, shake it off

I seriously can’t wait to hear the whole album. What I love so much about T. Swift is that she’s my age. We were born the same year, and her new album is fittingly named “1989.” So, as I grow, she grows, too. And her music grows. And I always LOVE it.

I’m sure I’ll be revisiting Miss Swift come October!
