Well Taylor Swift, You did it this time!

You managed to send the entire Swifty world into a frenzy... a mad one!!


Swift tweeted the above picture last night with the caption:

 

"@taylorswift Today at rehearsals for @Grammys. I’m trying to remember.. What was the song a lot of you were saying you wanted me to perform on the #Grammys?"

 

If you happened to catch the Red Tour, you would remember that the only song Swift played via piano is 'All Too Well.'

 

"It was rare, I was there, I remember it all too well."

 

After Swift tweeted, All Too Well trended worldwide via twitter.

Swifties have been tweeting her band members, her label president and spreading the word that we want to hear #AllTooWellAtTheGrammys

 

I love that Swift listens to her fans and is playing this song. Last night a poll went around and over 500 Swifties voted 'All Too Well' as their favorite song off the 'Red' Album.

 

'All Too Well' isn't a song you would think someone might perform at the Grammys. It's not a song that requires theatrics, in fact it's a song that will have you sitting in your seat sobbing and then giving Swift a standing ovation. It's an emotional song about a heart wrenching relationship. Swift takes you to that place with her, you can see each picture in your head and you too end up remembering it all too well.

 

Kelly Clarkson has even said that All Too Well is her favorite song off the Album, so some might be wondering why it was never turned into a single. Swift has been blown away with fans telling her how much they love that song, saying "I never expected it to be a favorite."

 

Maybe it will become a single after The Grammys, or maybe it will just be left to a really wonderful performance that everyone will always remember, either way it will be just that, something everyone will remember... All Too Well.

 

To all the critics and music fans that don't take Swift seriously as a writer and artist, you will after this performance. Some music critics have even written about how Taylor Swift is in fact a lyrical genius but that people don't take her songs seriously because they think of her as this sort of Bubble Gum Pop Artist who writes about her ex boyfriends.

 

The fact Swift allows herself to be vulnerable enough to share these stories and allows us to relate to what she's saying is what makes her the most popular artist in the world.

 

'All Too Well' captures your heart and brings you to a place of understanding and remembering what it feels like to be at a low place in life. It's not a song you can listen to and think 'Oh that just wasn't good, what is she talking about?'

 

If you've never been through a break up, or a hard time you can still have respect and understanding for this song. With lyrics like

 

And I know it's long gone, and there was nothing else I could do
And I forget about you long enough to forget why I needed to

 
And maybe we got lost in translation
Maybe I asked for too much
But maybe this thing was a masterpiece
'Til you tore it all up
Running scared, I was there, I remember it all too well

 
You called me up again just to break me like a promise
So casually cruel in the name of being honest
I'm a crumbled up piece of paper lying here
Cause I remember it all all all too well
Time won't fly it's like I'm paralyzed by it
I'd like to be my old self again
But I'm still trying to find it


After plaid shirt days and nights when you made me your own
Now you mail back my things and I walk home alone
But you keep my old scarf from that very first week
Cause it reminds you of innocence and it smells like me
You can't get rid of it, cause you remember it all too well Yeah."

 

This is the song, this is the song that redefines the naysayers  and the people that want to put Swift in this bubble of only relating to tween aged girls. Listen to her music, her lyrics, listen to the stories and you might find yourself relating and coping with love and loss in your own life.
