Listen: Taylor Swift speaks up on 'Speak Now'
What do you think of the title track to her new album?
Take Taylor Swiftâ€™s â€œYou Belong With Meâ€ and age everyone 10 years or so and youâ€™re got â€œSpeak Now.â€Â Thematically, that is.
â€œSpeak Now,â€ the title track to Swiftâ€™s Oct. 25 album, debuted on iTunes today, as one song from the album will for the next three weeks. Hear it here.
â€œSpeak Now,â€ like â€œYou Belong With Me,â€ carries on the story of a girl who knows the boy of her dreams should be with her instead of the shrew heâ€™s chosen. But this time, instead of her boy squiringÂ the other girl to a school dance or Halloween carnival, heâ€™s meeting her at the end of a church aisle.
Taking a page from the ending of â€œThe Graduate,â€ Swift interrupts the nuptials, although it may all be a fantasy.Â

We also see a not-so- sweet side of Americaâ€™s sweetheart when she sings, â€œI sneak in and see your friends and her snotty little family all dressed in pastel and she is yelling at a bridesmaid somewhere back inside a room in a gown shaped like a pastry.â€ OK, regardless of what you think about Tay Tay, thatâ€™s a pretty good line. We can't wait to see her claws come out more.
We canâ€™t quite figure out if sheâ€™s starting to work a bit of a stalker streak into her songs, but sheâ€™s beginning to sound a little bit like the girl who lives in her own fantasy world with lots of cats and stuffed animals, each of which she calls by name. Weâ€™re sure the video will explain it all.
As we've reported before, each song on "Speak Now"Â is about an event in Swift's life. Swift tells Glamour, "Everything that happens to me gets put into a song," Swift explained. "For some reason, I'm really comfortable talking about my personal life in songs. There, I don't hold back: names, dates, times, expressions on people's faces, exactly where we were and how it felt, what I wish I would have said to them in the moment."
