No, I get where you're coming from. In fact, I prefer SIO over WANEGBT, but the only thing I like about SIO is the message. The lyrics are barely mediocre, but the message was clear. Their intent was to just have a hit, that's my issue...but I guess resonating the message was understandable so. As for numbers, you have to remember, Taylor's the biggest thing in the world. She' going into her 5th album, so she's a veteran now. She doesn't need to focus on numbers anymore. She's had plenty of it.

right. i mean, the song and the idea of the song itself i think would be tough to write a lyrical masterpiece to, you know what i mean? the song does the job, like you said. i think what IS smart about it tho is the repetition of the words 5 times each [play, hate, shake, break, fake] because thats what makes the song soooo goddamn catchy, and tho when u think about it it may sound stupid going hate hate hate hate hate, i honestly think its really smart. also, i really love the music to the song i think its really great. i get what you mean it was to only have a hit though [tbh the only part of the song i dont like or i dont really care for the “my ex man….” part and i dont really get why everyone on tumblr seems to obsess over that part?? it is irrelevant to the song and like i think she couldve tried a little harder there and not have gone for the speaking bridge like she did for wanegbt, and it reminds me a little too much of the kind of songs that made me stop liking avril lavigne’s music if u kno what i mean- sorry lol], but i dont think thats really taylor’s mindset- to only produce music for good sales. but i do think sales ARE important to her, just because she works so goddamn hard, always trying to top herself. unlike other artists martin works with, taylor is actually the person most involved in everything. she co writes and co produces and we all know shes one of the hardest working and most passionate people in the business, so i think its just important to her to know that all that hard work [literally] pays off. you know? not for the money or anything, just for the satisfaction and the feeling that she did something right and people really like it.

The first single is really just to get hype for the album so numbers are important. I think she puts album sales on a higher scale than she would singles.

true, but sales of the first single indicate sales of the album!

I hope you're not one of the many people who are so obsessed with numbers. I don't care how SIO does, I care about integrity and quality. One of the main reasons why I musically love John is b/c of that. He was never one to make music for charts, but more for the art. Obsessing over numbers is a reason to work with Max Martin.

i mean look anon

in the grand scheme of things, numbers arent the most important thing in the world to me. obviously the thing i care most about is quality, and i have always been that way. BUT, in general, when it comes to taylor, i do root and hope for her that she will have very high numbers. not because i think its an indicator of the quality of a song. but a) it makes me happy/proud when taylor sells well b) i know it must make her soo happy, which is also why it makes me happy c) unfortunately, nowadays for the pop categories in the grammys, it is LESS about quality and mORE about numbers- at LEAST when it comes to nominations. i wish it wasnt that way but thats just what the industry has become. and though i’d take a quality album over an album thats just a generic seller any day, i love seeing taylor get nominated and win awards. it makes me very happy and proud.

in regards to shake it off and max martin: a little bit of a paradox comes in here. nothing max martin has ever worked on has won a grammy. nothing. above average popular music always gets nominated, but it doesnt always win. i think shake it off is a great song,even tho generally im not a huge max martin fan [ie u all know my outrage about prism]. not the quality i know taylor is capable of, of course. im certain 1989 will contain much better written songs on it. but you cannot deny the appeal of the song. i think it’s really great and fun and different and tho the lyrics aren’t anything to die for, i think its an awesome move on her part.

i know i just wrote a lot that probably didnt really answer your question- so, in conclusion, i care about quality most, but i always hope for high numbers when taylor releases music because i love taylor and always want her to be successful and happy and proud.

I think she just did it because she knows fans are going to start tweeting crazy about shake it off to get her attention, it's all marketing really. Likely will stop shortly and we won't hear from her for a while
