OFFSTAGE: Taylor Swift Sees Sadness in Several Ways

Published on December 26, 2012 by CMT News

Taylor Swift
(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and
out of the spotlight.)

Who knew there were so many ways to be sad? Taylor
Swift
certainly does. And she’s on this 60
Minutes Overtime
video explaining them all.

Keep in mind, these are all just love-related kinds of sadness,
and she explains them this way: “There’s the missing-him kind of sadness. There’s the frustrated-and-confused, don’t-know-why-it-ended
kind of sadness. There’s the I-know-we-can’t-be-together-but-I-just-miss-you-right-now sadness. Or there’s the sadness that’s
kind of tinged with anger. There’s a sadness that has guilt with it. There’s sadness that has a little bit of hope he’ll come
back.”

As she explains, she breaks down emotions into “like 50 million categories.” And the biggest category is sadness.
That all comes through in Swift’s songs, but it makes me wonder what would happen if she broke other emotions down into 50
million categories and set those to music. Surely there are a few million ways to sing about being angry, blissful, guilty,
scared, jealous or hopeful. Right?
