The 10kdays look at the music released around my birthday aka the Time Travel theme is nearly over. We have reached 2008. The music landscape continues to change. Radiohead and NIN have already decided to release albums on their own. Genres like alternative and hiphop have lost some of their shine. Instead there is a strong return to Country & Pop. So I figure for tonight’s song why not pick the artist that has best capitalized on this fact- Taylor Swift. She is the teenage crafter of crossover country songs that are eaten up with a spoon by middle america and the coasts alike. It’s a bit unbelievable when you think about it. You’ve got a teenage country singer getting played on top 40 radio and now shares the stage with rappers like T.I. and Nicki Minaj. It’s a mindblowing shift in musical tastes (though it is still very pop driven country). Her album “Fearless” came out around my birthday in 2008. Here’s a song from it:
