Love Story by Taylor Swift

Learnex, English Forever ¡Aprende Inglés para Siempre!

‘Love Story’ was inspired by an actual experience Taylor Swift had in real life. This American singer and song-writer decided to turn a real life situation into a song about a man she was fond of but her family and friends disliked. The circumstances reminded her of the classic story by William Shakespeare: Romeo and Juliet.

Although, Shakespeare’s version ended in tragedy, Taylor related with the narrative about two people wanting to be together despite their family’s aversion. She decided to give this love story a happy ending in the song, even when she didn’t get one. She dated the man who inspired the song but sadly they had to separate because it was hard to see each other very often.

Taylor wrote this song in her bedroom in approximately twenty minutes and when it was released in 2008, received critical praise. The song was a commercial success with more than 8 million copies sold and becoming one of the best-selling singles by a female country solo artist.

The video was successful as well, showing a romantic theme inspired by the Renaissance and British Regency periods. Undoubtedly, this song became a hit song for those irremediable romantics dreaming of a happy ending for their own love story.
