Taylor Swift, ‘Sweeter Than Fiction’ – Song Review

Taylor Swift 'Sweeter Than Fiction' from 'One Chance' Soundtrack

Taylor Swift is aiming for ’80s pop with ‘Sweeter Than Fiction,’ her contribution to the ‘One Chance’ soundtrack co-written with fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff. But does it work?

Yes. And it works beautifully.

The production is reminiscent of Brat Pack classics like OMD’s ‘If You Leave’ and the Cure’s ‘Friday I’m in Love,’ but in terms of her own previous work, Swift’s sugary offering is most akin to her ‘Red’ track ‘State of Grace,’ with its electric guitars, infectious melody and heartfelt, optimistic lyrics. In ‘Sweeter Than Fiction’ Swift encourages a down on his luck love, singing, “I’ll be one of the many saying / Look at you now, look at you now, now / I’ll be one of the many saying / Look at you now, look at you now, now / I’ll be one of the many saying you’ve made us proud, you’ve made us proud.

Swift’s vocals are stronger than usual on the track, and her harmonies are heaven sent. If you listen to this song and don’t want to hold hands and dance in a field and hug the person you love, check your pulse. You may need more help than we can give you.
