Video Of The Day: Taylor Swift´s Wonderful Performance Of “All Too Well” @ The Grammy’s 2014

I must admit that I know very little about Taylor Swift and her music. But reading Michael Robbins great book “Equipment for Living: On Poetry and Pop Music” inspired to check out this performance.

It was – well, cards on the table, I think it was transcendent. Someone forgot to tell her the Grammys are a joke. She got her Stevie Nicks on, banging her locks and singing pretty much in key, hunched over the piano like a velociraptor and tearing the meat off its bones. On record, the song is one of her best, but on that night, on my television screen, for as long as it lasted, it was the best song I´d ever heard.

It sure is a helluva performance.. I might need to check out more music by this Swift lady.

After, as the applause swelled, she cast s stony lizard gaze on the assembled royalty as if she´d forgotten who they were. As if she was sure they hadn’t learned a thing. I could not believe what I´d just witnessed..
