Recommended Posts

She shared this with music journalist Brian Mansfield in Nov 2008 and he uploaded it earlier this year.

Anyways, I decided to look through all the songs and how they were classified by RYM to see what genres she was listening to the most.

 

The most common primary genre tags were

 

Pop-rock: 76

Singer-songwriter: 45

Pop: 18

Alternative Rock: 16

Power Pop: 11

Piano Rock: 10

Indie Pop: 9

Contemporary Country: 8

Country-Pop: 8

Southern Hip-Hop: 7

Dance-Pop: 7

Contemporary Folk: 6

Teen Pop: 6

Folk-Rock: 5

Emo-Pop: 5

Acoustic Rock: 4

Contemporary R&B: 4

Americana: 4

Hard-Rock: 4

Folk-Pop: 4

Indie Rock: 3

Pop Soul: 3

Electropop: 3

Alt-Country: 3

Adult Contemporary: 3

Snap: 3

Country-Rock: 3

Rap-Rock: 2

Pop-Punk: 2

Country: 2

Chamber Pop: 2

Glam Metal: 2

Crunk: 2

Post-Grunge: 2

 

I think it's interesting because you can really hear how the music she was listening to at the time was influencing the sound Speak Now would have.

I'm impressed to see how even some of the most random stuff I like is there. Songs like Anna Nalick's "Catalyst" or Gavin DeGraw's "Follow Through". Mix it all together and you get something close to the Speak Now soundscape, indeed. And a great playlist to boot. Taylor, ha mind.

The playlists she shared after reputation's release also foreshadowed the sound of Lover and Folklore, so I'm looking forward to the next playlist she decides to share.

It better have a lot of Jewel, Alanis Morissette, Sheryl Crow, Tori Amos, Paula Cole, Sarah McLachlan, Meredith Brooks, Melissa Etheridge, et al. on it. I see some of them were already listed on this playlist you just shared. Give us the alt-pop gal era we always knew we needed, TayTay!

Actually the most recent playlist she shared was very much in that vein.

https://open.spotify.com/playlist/0pZjTllN5dOYyTqfQtJGpT?si=bmEWpIyFRcerfEj8tPE1gQ

 

But it was for Women's History Month when she was promoting The Man and includeed the female artists that inspired her when she was growing up, so it's not necessarily the music she's listening to right now.

I kinda love how wide her music taste has always been.

 

And the fact that she was an OG Brandi Carlile stan??? Whew.

One day she is going to give us that Lillith Fair inspired late 90's/early 2000's Pop/Rock/Singer Songwriter album and it will be amazing.  Some songs on folklore like August are already very much in that vein.

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaas! She better not miss the train!

Spoiler

That would be the logical next step after Folklore. Something that can still cater to Pop/HAC/AC audiences, while also branching out, showing range and getting the acclaim she always gets for spinning a different wheel and taking a chance on it. And I really need it.

I saw that! The taste! "Just Missed the Train" is soooo good. Danielle Brisebois really came through on that one. Kelly's version is probably my favorite, BTW.

SAME!  I heard her original version and it definitely sounds a little more in that 90's female rock vein but I'm a Kelly stan so naturally I liked hers the most, we love some extra belting! :cm:

 

She actually did it in a medley on her most recent tour, which was super random but I'm glad she did bc it sounds even better now
