In addition, “Love Story” is the fourth best selling song digitally downloaded by a female artist. The song was part of the Now that’s What I Call Country Volume 2 song list.
In the words of Swift: “it’s a song I wrote when was dating a guy who wasn’t exactly a popular choice.” His situation was a bit complicated, but I not imported. I started the song with the line, ‘ This love is difficult, but it’s real.’ When I wrote the end of the song, I felt that was the end every girl wants your love story. It is the end what I want. Want a guy who doesn’t care what anyone thinks, what anyone says. He just said, ‘ Casar Conmigo Juliet, te amo, and that is what I do know.’ It is a kind of account on a character from scratch, where is Romeo and Juliet, and not myself by saying that I will leave to marry or something… “But I think it is fun to write it.” Swift has involved the song “White Horse” based on the same person in “Love Story”.
“Love Story” was first released as single debut album of Swift, Fearless, in 2008. In an article for Billboard, Swift described “Love Story” as “a love that you have to hide because whatever reason not end well.” Giré it in the direction of Romeo and Juliet; our parents are fighting. “The more relaté as a love that not can produce – a love perhaps society would not accept or perhaps your friends could not accept.”
The song is part-time, backed by banjo and guitar. In the letter, the storyteller alludes to Romeo and Juliet and to The Scarlet Letter to describe a love who his father not leaves see. In the end, however, reconciles the father and his love proposes marriage to the storyteller. The proposal is accompanied by a modulation in a tone key d e. swift has been repeated in interviews that the song was written in the letter, “This love is difficult, but it’s real.”
Pop Mix replaces the instruments (banjo) country style and adds a more heavy bass, battery and electric guitars.
International Radio Mix is a hybrid mix of the album and the pop edit version keeping the subject of the original song with a pop harmonic arrangement.
In June 2009, Swift introduced “Thug Story”, a parody of “Love Story”, with T-Pain for the CMT Music Awards. In October 2009, Swift introduced “Love Story” on The Oprah Winfrey Show.
The song received positive reviews in response to critics. The 9513 Jim Malec you gave the song “top thumbs”. Although he said that the song had “a wonderful and idealized finale” and seemed to cover too much of a plot for a four-minute song, however made note of the letter, saying, “difficulties around his affair and the complicaicones are as serious as the Juliet… the fact that Swift, possibly the biggest star in this moment, has done it here is a breath of fresh air, even it the song follows a pattern unfortunately not original.” He added, “none of these critical, however, will have a greater impact on the effectiveness of the song, or in his ability to have resounding echo with its oúblico target…” “What is more, ‘Love Story’ shows an artist willing to take chances in venturing into the structure of the standard format of the song, and let your personality shine on lyrics in general that follows a well-trodden path.” Nick Levine page United Kingdom Digital Spy, you gave the song three stars and praised Swift for knowing “their way to a chorus in a radio friendly” and said that she “has enough charm to get letter essentially writes to Romeo and Juliet with a happy ending.” He concluded his review of the song “Like Meg Ryan, this is totally corny, but difficult to not like.”
However, the story of Romeo and Juliet is intended to be seen as a tragedy for a love story. There are some who feel that the song misrepresents the ideal General history and creates an impolite to classical literature.
