Morrissey or Taylor Swift?
Time for our weekly ‘Morrissey or Taylor Swift?’ challenge, in which we throw out some lyrics and you try to figure out if they were written by everyone’s favorite grumpy indie rocker or the world’s most popular 23-year-old pop star.
The defiant tone of the lyrics — “Bring on all the pretenders / One day we will be remembered” — certainly echo a sentiment we’ve heard time and time again from Morrissey. But the words also strike an anthemic tone that’s more Swift than Moz. Plus, the attention-grabbing nature of those words are certainly in step with Swift. Then again, Morrissey does seem like the kind of guy who needs to get in the last word, even if it comes years from now.
