I got Speak Now today, and let me tell you, it is so amazing! I love EVERY song, and I'm not lying. I think Taylor has matured so much, and the way she writes is incredible to me. <3 I also really like how Taylor wrote all of the songs by herself. :)
Now, I'll try to explain in a sentence or two why I love each song, or my thoughts on them. And I'll also give you the hidden messages in bold at the end of each description. Get ready...here we go! :)
1.) Mine: First of all, I love how it's upbeat. And how the song tells a story from beginning to end. I like the way Taylor describes things so perfectly. (This is for almost every song! Haha.) I also lovelovelove the music video for this song. My favorite part in Mine is the bridge, and then the chorus after it. Toby is the hidden message.
2.) Sparks Fly: Even though most everyone has heard this song before, I have not. Taylor sang it live before and everyone loved it, so she put it on the album. I think this is a really great song, and I like the chorus a lot. Portland, Oregon is the hidden message.
3.) Back To December: Back To December is my favorite song from the new album. The first time I heard it, I couldn't stop listening. I learned the words in two days. I really like how this is a different type of song for Taylor. It's an apology to a person, so I think that makes it more real to me. Taylor goes very personal, so to speak, in this song, so I love it. I think the chorus and the bridge are my favorite parts! :) Tay is the hidden message.
4.) Speak Now: Obviously, I love this song! The words make me laugh in a good way, and I like how Taylor is honest. I don't really know what to say about the song, just that I love it. I also really like the small giggle in the middle of the song, it's so cute! <3 You Always Regret What You Don't Say is the hidden message.
5.) Dear John: This song gave me "goosebumps." It's the only one that did at first, for some reason. This song makes me feel sad for Taylor, and I just want to hug her. It's the longest song on the album, and another one of my favorites. I definitely recommend this one. Loved You From The Very First Day is the hidden message.
6.) Mean: I really, really love Mean. I love how it sounds so country. This song relates to me the most, but in a different way. The chorus is my absolute favorite. "All you're ever gonna be is mean." :) I Thought You Got Me is the hidden message.
7.) The Story Of Us: I think this song is really nice. I like the story behind it, and I love how Taylor sounds. I'm not really sure of what else to say, so I'll just leave it at that. However, the hidden message keeps me wondering. CMT Awards is the hidden message.
8.) Never Grow Up: This is the cutest song ever. I LOVE it, a lot. The chorus is really good, and I love the end! I Moved Out In July is the hidden message.
9.) Enchanted: I think this song, it's really pretty. I like how it's soft and slow, and very sweet. The chorus is my favorite, just like in most songs. Haha! But, I really love a part at the end that goes: "Please don't be in love with someone else, please don't have somebody waiting on you." Adam is the hidden message. (I'm not really sure who he is, to be honest.)
10.) Better Than Revenge: I LOVE this song. So so so much. I think it's more of a rock feel, to me anyway. & I love how Taylor sings it. :) My favorite part is the chorus, but one line specifically. It goes, "She's an actress, woah, but she's better known for the things she does on the mattress." I think that's the funniest part. Everyone says it's about Camilla Belle who previously dated Joe Jonas, but I'm not entirely sure. You Thought I Would Forget is the hidden message.
11.) Innocent: I first heard this song on the VMA's this year, and I've loved it ever since. I think it's a good song, giving the circumstance that is was written about. Taylor is saying to the person (Kayne) that she forgives him, even if he didn't actually apoligize. She's saying that everything will be okay, and there will be better days. I love it. Life Is Full Of Little Interruptions is the hidden message.
12.) Haunted: I do like this song. I love the lyrics and I like how the music sounds. It's just a great song! :) Still To This Day is the hidden message.
13.) Last Kiss: The song is a slow song,which I love. I just think it's a very sweet song, and Taylor's voice is so raw in it. I lovelovelove it, of course! It seems as if everyone thinks this song is also about Joe Jonas, and I think so too, because of the hidden message but then again I'm not really sure. Forever And Always is the hidden message.
14.) Long Live: The last song on the album! :) I think it's a really good song, and I think it's about her band. The chorus and end verse are my favorite parts. For You is the hidden message.
So, overall, I really like and enjoy the album a lot. I recommend you buy it and listen to it. You won't regret it! SPEAK NOW IS AMAZING! <33
