Songs Taylor Swift haters need to listen to 11/?: The Lucky One

The Lucky One is a song that I wrote while I was in Australia, and it kind of talks about some of my fears, through telling the story of other people that I was inspired by. But, you know, more than their stories being told, I’m pretty much singing about what I’m scared of in that song - ending up kind of caught up in this whole thing, and lonely and feeling misunderstood, and feeling like when people think that you’re lucky that you’re really not. So it kind of expresses my fear of having this not end up be fun anymore, having it end up being a scary place. And some people get there. (x)

At the Bleachers show in Williamsburg in March, Dunham watched from the rafters with Taylor Swift, with whom Antonoff wrote the Golden Globes-nominated song “Sweeter Than Fiction.” Antonoff is a hardcore Swiftie, and he talks about her with the protectiveness and pride of an older brother. “We live in a fascinating time where there’s a weird shift in pop, and certain pop stars aren’t really resonating in the way they were,” he says. “The reason why Taylor stands above everyone else is because she’s a songwriter. She sits in rooms and she writes songs. Most importantly, they sound like her. All the other pop stars, to put it in a really simple way, they’re just not as talented.” Swift’s ability to craft her own material is what sets her apart, he believes. “Other pop stars have to go through, like, a goth phase. You can imagine the marketing meetings behind other pop stars. Whereas the meeting behind Taylor is like, ‘Write a great fucking album,’ which she can.
