Taylor Swift premiered a new song last night at the 2012 Stand Up To Cancer telecast. You can watch her performance here and you can listen to the studio version in the replies. The song is also available on iTunes.
Such a great song. Well written, co-penned by Ronan's mother. The story about Ronan makes the song take on a whole new meaning. Love when songwriters do stuff like this. She got pretty choked up at the end of the live performance, but I give her so much credit for not crying the whole song. Just such a sad story and song.
Anyone who says she can't write a song other than heartbreak ones should just give this a listen, willing to bet she'll win over some opinions with this track.
Sounded even better live...she barely got to the end then started to break down. Very emotional.
Someone who was there posted:
she didnít even exit the stage the right way. they took her band off and she was just kinda in this state of shock. she didnít know what to do. she was just crying and went off in a different direction.
Track is nr1 on Itunes. All the proceeds go to cancer-related charities. So she is gonna gather a lot of money for a good cause.
I like this. See this and Safe & Sound is the type of stuff she should be doing more of, especially since she's growing up, instead of We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together. I know she probably wanted to experiment with Max M. but he could've lead her into a better direction that that
