First off, I am not a hater or internet assassin. I am huge Fan of Taylor's. I love all three albums and her.

This song is different and all pop. Country radio is playing a version of it but its very similar to the pop one.

I am not judging until I hear the whole album. Is this well written and thoughtful, no. Is it catchy and in the vain of Call Me Maybe, yes. It is what I call a summer song.

I am eager to hear how this record goes. I loved her last record Speak Now. It was grown up, mature, and thoughtful.
I hope this song is not foreshadowing.

Time will tell.

Chris

Even at first listen, you can tell Taylor is using co-writers this time around. I wasn't surprised to learn that Max Martin was one of them for this track (Martin is responsible for many Britney Spears & P!nk hits.) Therefore, I can see why this song is getting mixed reviews.

On one hand, it is pure pop, making it seem somewhat shallow.. even if the lyrics are still very Taylor-esque, just not quite as much story-telling this time. On the other hand, only Taylor Swift could come out with a pure pop song & have it be a "different" sound for her. If this was a new artist on the scene, I'm not sure this song would be a hit for them. But because we wouldn't expect this from Taylor, it ends up seeming original in a way. It is intriguing to think what direction her album will be going based on this song.

Since the album doesn't drop til the end of October, I'm sure she will release another single before then. So critics shouldn't judge quite yet. In the meantime, enjoy a more fluffy pop song that only Taylor could make seem refreshing. I personally really enjoy it, especially because I can relate to the break-up-then-make-up relationship it's describing. Part of Taylor Swift's genius is how relatable she is, so in my mind, this style still suits her.

However, a caveat: I'm not a country music fan, so her divergence from that genre would not affect or disappoint me anyway.

Even though I like traditional country music I do like some-pop country. I have enjoyed pop-country from Patsy Cline to Dolly Parton to Shania Twain. Pop Country is not a new thing to country music. It has been around for decades. But make no mistake. This song is not pop country by any stretch. This is pure pop with zero country influences. Tha being said, it wouldn't be so bad if it at least had a good melody and good lyrics. For people who actually value music this will not be for you. There is zero substance here. Poor melody and very poor lyrics. If Taylor wasn't the "IN" thing this surely would not be popular. It always amazes me how people will buy whatever as long as it is the "current in" thing regardless of quality. Now I have nothing against Taylor Swift. I am sure she is a good person and you can't blame her for "cashing in." I suppose we all would if we could. But have to be honest, this is one of the lowest qualities of music I have heard in some time from a pop singer.

Talking through lyrics is not singing! Horrible lyrics, poorly performed, not much value here. Clearly a money grab by her label. Hope this isn't the best song on the album. Stay away from this one, hearing it on the radio is an automatic dial changer.

My least favorite song she's ever done, and I am a big fan. It's not insightful, and the spoken part is really annoying. I am not buying the new album until I hear something much better. I've always admired Taylor's career progression in that she didn't try to sing about the experiences of a 25 year old when she was 17. However, instead of the nice progression we heard on the second and third albums, this song seems to be some sort of strange trip back to age 13. If it's supposed to be funny, it should be funnier, and say something interesting and important. Sorry Taylor but this one isn't up to snuff!

I heard this as a sample and thought "what a departure 'You Belong To Me' which was at least Country-Pop but I did not post a review. Well tonight I was unfortunate to hear this awful song in it's entirety and it was a total fail! The most obnoxious part is the chorus. I guess I would expect this from a girl-band but even the Spice Girls put out better stuff than this, which makes me cringe. Another person observed that it sounded like Avril Lavigne and I can see the similarities but even what she has made puts this to shame. Worse still, is that this is supposed to be Country (OK Contemporary Country which leans more toward Pop, like Shania Twain's recent offerings. E-P-I-C FAIL!!!!

I'm going to get this out there first, I do not hate Taylor Swift, I in fact find many of her songs, especially Fearless, guilty pleasures.

This, on the other hand, oh boy.

I have heard this song no more than three times and already grow to hate it. A good break-up song makes you feel for the narrator as they pour their heart out. This on the other hand sounds like arrogant, whiny taunting from the kind of girl they cast as the villain in a bad high-school drama.

Also, the chorus and that constant refrain of the title make it all so much worse than it already is.
