Song of the Week: "Ronan"

Remember when I said I didn't like Taylor Swift's new song at all but hoped I'd like the next one? I sure do. This is when she's at her best: effortlessly but devastatingly emotional. It's one of the saddest country songs I've ever heard, and I'm a Dolly Parton fan. It's about childhood cancer, and even though she's not the woman in the song, she can sell the emotions believably. More like this, please. But not exactly like this, because it made me cry my eyes out. It reminded me a lot of losing Ellen. Proceed with caution. (Incidentally, I should thank Sam for making sure I heard this, because I really do love it; I find this kind of thing can be very cathartic.)
