Francia ( Tasmania )
The song “Maroon” by Taylor Swift – Francia’s goosebump moment
“Hi, my name is Francia. I’m from Tasmania and my goosebump moment is the song “Maroon” by Taylor Swift. It’s a song that the first time that I listened to it I got literal chills running down my spine. It’s a song about remembering a past relationship and how feelings that were once bright and burned red because they were so passionate, transformed into something deeper and darker with time and then they became maroon. How you remember the little things, like the blood that rushed into your cheeks or how the wine they spilled over your t-shirt was burgundy. It also has these beautiful descending harmonies in the chorus. Ever since it came out, it has become this sudden rush of serotonin for me, and I think it will probably continue to be so for many years to come.”
“Maroon”, the fifth song from the album “Midnights”
“Maroon” is a Taylor Swift song that talks about love in the first place to end up singing about loss. It is the second song of the “Midnights” album and one of her first hits; very well structured around those two parts that can happen in a relationship. The story is about two people who are friends, become something more and become inseparable.
The term maroon is repeated like an echo, and its meaning takes on a double meaning because it can also take it from the verb, in which case we would be talking about leaving something behind. Swift, throughout her career, has used colors to express emotions. This one is dark and can have a double interpretation related to loss.
Taylor Swift makes her mark in history with “Midnights”
The release of “Midnights” crossed music platforms: Swift’s official website collapsed due to the heavy traffic it presented after her first posts on networks about the “Midnights” album in October last year. In addition, the album cover became a trend on the Internet; it was copied, parodied, and imitated by millions of users, official accounts of major brands, and stars of the entertainment world.
Throughout her 18-year career, the Pennsylvania singer-songwriter has proven that if there is one thing she is not, it is predictable. No album resembles the previous one – perhaps they are connected by themes linked to love – and every time she fits into a musical genre, she releases a new work that completely contradicts it.
Artist and entrepreneur
The album “Midnights” represents the essence of what Swift is and has been, for whom everything extra-musical also plays a significant role. Singer, songwriter, actress, producer, director, and entrepreneur, the artist was born Taylor Alison Swift in Reading, Pennsylvania, on December 13, 1989.
Swift is known for her strong storytelling and lyrics that speak to her personal experiences. She has received awards from the Nashville Songwriters Association and the Songwriters Hall of Fame. In addition, she has won eleven Grammy Awards, one Emmy, 25 Billboard Music Awards, 30 American Music Awards, one Brit Award, six MTV Video Music Awards, eleven Country Music Association Awards, and two Golden Globe nominations.
In her years of artistic career, she has sold more than 50 million albums and 150 million digital downloads of her singles, making her one of the best-selling recording artists in the world.
