Yes, NINE years (:/) have passed this week since Taylor emerged as a proper contender for worldwide stardom by releasing this crossover smash, and the rest is history kink.gif



This became 9x Platinum in America, 7x Platinum in Australia and Platinum in the UK, going top 5 in each country (#4. #1 and #2 respectively). What were your initial thoughts on this country-pop bop that weaves a fairytale? What are your thoughts now compared to her newer material?

At the time this is what Buzzjack names you will probably recognise had to say:

this is an amazing song'
it should go top 20 easily and help the album


QUOTE(Jonjo @ Jan 14 2009, 06:07 PM) *
Music Video's on iTunes USUALLY give a good impression as to how they'll do when released, Taylor Swift is currently at Number 5 and I would say at the moment, it will probably Go Top 20 perhaps Top 15, which is surprising, as she's really not what the UK public would really buy!

I think she will be big here...

they are not country as such but Rockstar and All Summer Long had country elements to them and were both huge hits

Oh god I've succumbed! Damn her! Her voice is not good at all but for some reason this song is just... it gets under your skin. The melody is lovely. She could be great with a better voice...

I want to dislike this but it's just so addictive! sad.gif
I always find myself singing the chorus in my head haha.



Critical response:

Love Story is a stunning pop song and, because it really does tell a love story, it's heart-warming and draws the listener into the exciting and romantic fairytale world - BBC Music
An enchaning offering - Billboard
An ebullient first hit. - Country Weekly (not her first hit but k hun)
17th on Taste Of Country's Greatest Country Songs Of All Time

Funny how this was a big hit in the UK and she pretty much dissapeared from our charts for almost 2 whole album campaigns before crashing back in with WWNEGBT

She was young and innocent back then. Little would we knew that 9 years later, we would get her Piece of Me-esque song and her controversial music video.

I wish sometimes she would go back to county.

It was nice at first but was so overplayed unfortunately especially on the music channels my mum had on that I quickly got bored of it and started disliking it.
