Our Song

9 Sep, 2006

Swift releases her single, Our Song, from her self titled album, Taylor Swift. About what inspired her to write her song:

I wrote this song in my freshman year of high school for my 9th grade talent show. So I was sitting there thinking, ‘I’ve gotta write a song that’s gonna relate to everyone in the talent show, and it’s gotta be upbeat.’ And at that time, I was dating a guy, and we didn’t have a song. So I went ahead and wrote us one, and I played it at the talent show at the end of the year. And months later, people would come up to me and they’re like, ‘I loved that song that you played – ‘Our Song’.’ And then they’d start singing lines of it back to me. And they’d only heard it once, so I thought, ‘There must be something here!’
