Have You Wondered What Songs Are Really About?
Throughout the history of music, there have always been songs that have had their lyrics picked apart and debated.
Some are pretty straightforward, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out what Eric Clapton’s “Cocaine” is about. But songs like “Hotel California” have been hotly debated since they were first recorded.
The Beatles’ “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” is another song that has been picked apart for decades. With some pointing to the initials of the song as a clear reference to psychedelic drugs, but John Lennon is on the record saying that the song was simply inspired by his toddler son’s drawing.
One thing that we can say for sure though – Taylor Swift’s songs are all about boys. We don’t know which boys necessarily, but I’m pretty confident in saying that they’re all about boys.
