**** Schon nach den ersten paar Tönen erkennt man Max Martin. Die Melodie im Refrain kommt mir da unheimlich bekannt vor, kann aber gerade nicht sagen von wo. Auf alle Fälle ein guter Pop-Song, jedoch auch da nichts weltbewegendes.
*** This actually gets on my nerves more than anything. One of my least favourite singles of hers - lol @ peaking at #21 in Australia and #23 in New Zealand. Also #20 peak in the States. Last edited: 29.07.2013 13:06
*** "next to yooouuhoooou" is possibly the most irritating thing she has ever recorded. I seriously do not want to hear another Martin/Shellback Taylor Swift song. Sure it's catchy but it's not for me at all. 2.5
I was so happy when this originally peaked at #22 and then looked like it was going to continuously drop down the charts and keep that peak forever. But then silly Taylor had to go and release the music video which would garner renewed interest in the song and give it a rebound; thus giving it a new peak of #21 and spoiling my happiness :( :P
Anyway to the song itself. It actually isn't too bad; that is until you get to the chorus which is really quite grating. If the chorus wasn't that bad I'd be close to enjoying it. I prefer "I Knew You Were Trouble." and "Everything Has Changed". Last edited: 11.04.2014 12:18
*** There is a catchy element to this song just like the past two singles, but this is the weakest of the three by far. It's also her weakest vocal performance and the chorus can be incredibly grating on the ears.
*** Beinahe schon schockierend, wie unreif dieser Titel klingt. Beim Songtitel werden natürlich Erinnerungen an Adele wach - und dem Vergleich hält das Mädel hier halt so gar nicht stand. Last edited: 05.04.2013 16:14
***** It's about as pop as you can get, so I can understand why some people would hate this. I however, do not. In fact, I love it! '22' is extremely catchy, the kind of mindless fun that always puts a smile on my face.
