Love her or hate her, Taylor can build a pop song around a feeling and a concept that may be entirely foreigner while keeping it warm and approachable. If her 1989 album is her recapturing 80s icons, this seems to be her Laura Branigan circa Self Control turn. The dark and moving bits allow here to play The Little Red Ridinghood role she like while also allowing the refrains which are more straightforwardly poppy to be a counterpoint. Whether the whole thing is an indictment of America's inability to develop new roles for men and women, I'll leave for another time. But remember, young love is forever... just maybe not yours and certainly not Taylor's.
