Riff: Taylor Swift – “We Are Never Getting Back Together”

Oct 3, 2012

And you, would hide away and find your peace of mind/With some indie record that’s much cooler than mine

from We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together lyrics by Taylor Swift

Catchy. yet a bit typical, Swift fans will enjoy this quite humorous, self-aware breakup song that pokes fun at her own hyper-mainstream status while simultaneously ribbing hipsters. It makes for a likable theme for relationships that refuse to die (but need to).
