Taylor Swift’s New Song: ‘Sweeter Than Fiction’

I love Taylor Swift. I love her so much and I am not afraid to admit it. I have loved her since forever ago when I was changing channels and my television got stuck on CMT and her song “Stay Beautiful” was playing. One time I went to her concert and it was the best thing ever.

Based off that 4th grade essay I just wrote, you probably won’t be surprised to learn that I am absolutely obsessed with Taylor Swift’s new song “Sweeter Than Fiction.” Super obsessed. If there’s one thing I love more than Taylor Swift, it’s 80s movies, and I will light myself with St. Elmo’s fire if I’m wrong about this — but tell me this song doesn’t sound a whole lot like “If You Leave” by OMD from that scene in Pretty in Pink…in a really really good way.

Take a listen while you wave your arms around and dance like the Duckie in all of us:

^ This is what perfection sounds like.

But what do you think?

    I agree, I’m glad she sings what she wants !! She speaks my mind. And does things that I wish I could do outloud

  • Luciana Safdie

    Not as big of a fan of Taylor as you are (is that even possible?) but I do have to admit that I love the 80’s beat behind it… it makes me want to rent an old school cadillac convertible and dance with my arms up along the Californian coast while listening to this song.

  • Kenzie

    she is perfection

  • Jen

    I love her too, this is perfect. Funny story, I was once paid to be her fan. CMT was filming a behind the scenes as she was buying her first album. No one in NYC knew who she was so I was paid to be an extra. I acted like I was a fan and ask for autograph.

    Still have the signed CD and poster.

    I am also a self confessed Swiftie, and she has never disappointed me:):):):)

  • Shawnee Rajala

    I don’t understand why more people are not freaking out about this? Like, I love this song! It’s been on repeat since she released it and I bought it. Always a Taylor fan…sigh. Leandra, high five!

    • Leandra Medine

      This one is on Amelia. She deserves a high ten!

      • Shawnee Rajala

        Ha, my mistake! Yay Amelia!

    Well, since we’re on the topic of Taylor Swift and this IS The Man Repeller I just thought I would mention how strange it is to me that Taylor Swift herself is a man-repeller. One time I was talking about how gorgeous she was and my (straight) male friend said “No way! No guys like Taylor.” and I asked other boys and they all agreed with him. Hmm I don’t get it. She’s just so pretty in my eyes.

    • Annita

      In my experience everyone agrees that she’s pretty, but her *ahem* dating habits *ahem* are a bit off-putting to guys!

    I’m not from EEUU, and to me it sounds boring and pretty much the same as 1.000.000 other pop songs, so so boring. It’s actually sociologically interesting to me that she’s such a big star in your country and her music sounds so flat to me and the people I know … She looks like a perfectly sweet girl to me, that’s not the point, it’s just very very blah for me.

  • very nice yes!

  • Dee

    I HAD THE EXACT SAME THOUGHT WHEN I HEARD THIS SONG! I told all of my friends “hey doesn’t this sound like If You Leave?” they all thought I was crazy. Thank you for making me feel a tad bit more sane today.

  • Matt

    I have to admit that she’s doin right with it

    I love Taylor Swift. Not my favorite song of all time, but the 80’s back beat is super killer! I probably will be singing this song unknowingly within a few weeks though, so props to T.Swft for continuously recording music that is catchy and sing along worthy. I really do love her.
