You know I love Taylor Swift. She is young, beautiful and crazy talented. Each song she writes is amazing and she is only 22, and by her own admission, all of her songs are a reflection of her life experiences.
It got me to thinking. Sure she has had heartache, probably a terrible John Mayer sexual encounter, and bullying episodes, but she is too young to really have rich experiences to write about. But take someone like me. At 41, as a mom and wife, I could put an album out lickety split.
Moms and wives have a wealth of wisdom and experience to write songs about. We’ve really been in the trenches, seen so much, some stuff we can never erase from our minds, like throw up and diarrhea at the same time!
So, my dream album would go something like this. And because I have no musical talent whatsoever, it would have more of a Weird Al feel than a Taylor one.
