A Very Taylor Swift Christmas

Despite what some of my Facebook friends might think, I actually don't hate Taylor Swift. I'm not really her target audience, but I do think she has a decent voice, and she's kind of cute. But I do wish (if ever a wish there was) that she could find some other inspiration for a song besides failed relationships. And I know that I'm not alone in this.

Yeah, you could say I'm not the only one who has noticed it. And I'm sure that to the girls in her demographic the subject is a lot more meaningful than it is to me. And hey - it's working for her. So I suppose we could go the "you go girl" route.

But I have to say that I got a pretty good laugh the other day when I heard her version of "Last Christmas" on the radio. Now, I go back and forth on that song to begin with. On one hand, it's kind of irritating. On the other hand, I like George Michael, so sometimes I listen to it anyway.

So I heard a little bit of it as I was debating about whether or not to change the station.

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart.
The very next day, you gave it away.

Yep. So far this sounds like an appropriate song for her to be singing.

This year, to save me from tears,
I'll give it to someone special.

Nope, sorry. That's where you lost me. But I suppose that "I'll give it to the next guy I'm going to write a song about" just doesn't have the same ring to it.
