come on, who'd throw away Taylor...?
30 August 2016 | by RavenGlamDVDCollectorSee all my reviews

...then again, there are plenty of guys out there who would use and discard. Even somebody like Taylor, unthinkable as it may appear.

Taylor wakes up in the dirt left behind at some outdoor concert. She stumbles about trying to find herself, but she realizes that she has done herself in yet again, got taken for a ride by a guy she mistook for 'an angel' but who was just another rogue devil. She has recollections about the events of the day before, leading up to the concert, and it's clear that this guy was living a fast life and just using her as entertainment. She had seen so much more in him, but she was mistaken, and realizes now that she has only herself to blame. Which, sadly, is true, she should have known better.

The song might not be her best. Far from it. That cannot be argued away. But here it is definitely the whole package, the song + the music video, the forlorn ambiance of the whole thing. You have to understand what this girl is singing about. Abandonment is one thing, losing out on what she thought was love, but this is about realizing her own flaws, that she brought in on herself, and most probably would do so again.

It's a whole lot better than your first impressions might be, but yeah, not instantly pleasing, and I have to concede that this video (and song) is, like MEAN, only for Swifties, her detractors would have a field day parodying this, I shudder to think.

But to anybody deriding it, you've failed to have the insight to comprehend the quality offering that this really is. It's emotion-filled art, a plaintive wail, and fortunately, there are enough of us Swifties in the world to have guaranteed its success. Yay!

Me, personally, would just like to add, a guy would have to be VERY stupid to ditch a hot bird like Taylor...!
