Don’t know how your week was last week but for Taylor Swift (to steal from Larry David), it was pretty, pretty, pretty, good.
Let’s start with Wednsday night. The CMA Awards. “Country’s biggest night.” Ironically, it’s a musical genre she professes to not give two shakes about anymore. Anyway, the night’s biggest songwriter award is “Song of the Year.” The winner? Taylor Swift for Little Big Town’s “Better Man.”
Friday, her brand new release, “Reputation” comes out and sells more than 700,000 copies in a day. No one does that anymore. No one.
Then on Saturday, she is the musical guest on “Saturday Night Live.” Now, we’re not the biggest fans of all of her “Pop” music work, but there has been some we really have liked.
Count this song among them.
“Call It Want You Want” sounds like something she might have done when she was in the world of country music full time. Check it out for yourself.
