Riff: Taylor Swift – “22”

Oct 22, 2012

It feels like a perfect night to dress up like hipsters/ And make fun of our exes

from 22 lyrics by Taylor Swift

Packed with more sugar than a Krispy Kreme doughnut, “22” will inevitably be too sickly sweet for some, but it’s refreshing to hear Swift let her hair down for once as she romanticises about getting caught up in the moment over what appears to be a mash-up of every Miley Cyrus song rolled into one.
