Shake It Off & Party Like It’s 1989 – Episode 147 of Taylor Talk: The Taylor Swift Podcast

Shake It Off 1989 Taylor Swift

Taylor’s using album five to take us back to 1989! On August 18th, Taylor held a Yahoo LiveStream event to announce a new single, “Shake It Off,” her new album “1989” (available 10/27!), and a new music video!! Taylor’s live stream was a massive unload of a bunch of new, exciting information, and your hosts are SO excited to unpack it all! We give our initial thoughts about the theme of 1989, how we love that “Shake It Off” is a complete dance party, and we marvel at the music video. Feel free to share your thoughts about the direction Taylor’s taking her new music. Enjoy the show!


Highlights from Episode 147 of Taylor Talk: The Taylor Swift Podcast
Main Discussion – New Single “Shake It Off” And New Album 1989
– We should have know the polaroid pictures were a clue!
– Taylor was inspired by the late 1980s for her new album, a time period only Steve remembers.

– Debate: “fake” vs. “bake.” What’s the verdict?
– The hosts conclude that “Shake It Off” is hella good.
– Swift fact: Taylor believes you can tell a lot about a person by how willing they are to dance. She even asked fans to dance with her in the “Shake It Off” music video!
– I don’t know about you, but the “Shake It Off” music video gave us SO many costume ideas for the 1989 Tour!!

Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show — Episode 106 of Taylor Talk: The Taylor Swift Podcast

2013 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show - ShowWe knew Taylor Swift was trouble when she walked in at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion show. In this mid-week episode of Taylor Talk: The Taylor Swift Podcast, we discuss Taylor’s killer performances on the VS Fashion Show, first opening with Fall Out Boy for “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark” and closing the show with “I Knew You Were Trouble.” It’s undeniable that Taylor gave the best performance of the night, but we ponder why exactly Taylor appeared on the VS Fashion Show. After all, the words “Taylor Swift” and “lingerie” have been mutually exclusive until now. Perhaps Taylor performed for promotional reasons? Or because one of her best friends, Lily Aldridge, is a VS model? Listen up to episode 106 of Taylor Talk to find out our opinions and be sure to send us your own. Enjoy the show!
