the fact that a song that promotes rape and views women as sex objects and nothing more and is the epitome of misogyny in the mainstream media and is nominated for two grammys disgusts me.
Mama Swift was telling some fans how Taylor puts her heart into every song she writes and that the most heart wrenching song she has ever written was All Too Well. She told them that Taylor wrote All Too Well while they were still rehearsing for the Speak Now tour in 2010. Taylor came to the stage and everyone could tell she had been crying. Everyone knew she had just gone through a bad breakup but the show must go on. She picked up a guitar and began to play the opening to All Too Well. She sang bits and pieces of it and the band looked around confused because this was a song they didn’t know. Then it dawned on everyone in the room that they didn’t know the song because she was writing it right then and there. Slowly, the band began to join in with her. By the time she got to the part where it goes ‘you called me up again just to break me like a promise,’ Andrea said she was crying and screaming the words. When she was finished, Mama Swift turned to the sound guy and asked if he recorded it and he tearfully said that he did. She kept the song until the Red album because it was still too raw in 2010.
