@glasshalfempty (see what I did with the headline 🙂 ) courageously included the Taylor Swift song Style on his RR 10th anniversary CD; I say courageously because she’s supposedly just another lightweight pop sensation. Some, however, hear serious songwriting chops beneath that MTV sheen – among them the ever-melancholy Ryan Adams, an alt-country former bad boy – and it is now becoming hip to like her (saying you always knew bleh, bleh, bleh) … as long as Adams sings them. He has just released a cover of her entire new album, 1989, not because he needs the attention (which he doesn’t), but because he loves the songs.
A good reminder to trust your instincts and like what you like without shame.
