Day 7 of My Week with Taylor Swift - Blank Space

Day 7 of my week with Taylor Swift and for my final choice it's 'Blank Space'.

'Blank Space' was released late in 2014, and was taken from her album 1989. It followed her previous release from the album Shake it Off.

Blank Space is another catchy pop song, again getting back at the haters who mock Taylor for her dating record. Its quite slow paced, but its very pop.

It does have quite darkly funny lyrics this one. "so its gonna be forever, or its gonna go down in flames, you can tell me when its over, if the high was worth the pain". Then she sings "got a long list of ex-lovers, they'' tell you I'm insane".  My favourite line though is this one " darling I'm a nightmare dressed like a daydream".

Basically, this is Taylor, much like with Shake it Off, telling the world to buggar off and leave her alone. I mean if she was a man, no-one would make such a fuss over dating like she does. Who's business is it anyway but hers? Well done Taylor - best way to show 'em what you're made of - throw it back at them.

The video is brilliant. Its very self mocking and humourous. Taylor dressed in beautiful gowns, dating, then going a bit bonkers. Smashing up his car, cutting up his clothes - generally being a bit bunny boiler. She looks fabulous, even in her madness. I really enjoyed this video - its clever and effective.

Blank Space reached number 4 in the UK singles chart, so was another monster hit for her. It just goes to show that revenge is sweet!!

Taylor's voice sounds great on this, the lyrics are clever and its very catchy indeed. Another great song to finish off my week with Taylor Swift.

So there we have it - my last song choice. You can check out days 1-6 here, along with loads more music. Happy listening :)
