Although Demi is a diehard Taylor fan these days, her relationship with Taylor Swift has not always been blasting Dear John in the Chick-fil-a drive thru line. Demi grew up with family in the music industry in Cleveland, and has been a lifelong fan of Kanye West. Hear her take on the Kanye-Taylor drama and more in this new episode of Good for a Weekend.

The F1RST Theory

The F1RST Theory

May 13, 2021

Ali and Kressie discuss the F1RST Theory--the theory that the order of Taylor Swift's re-recordings is Fearless, 1989, Red, Speak Now, and Taylor Swift (self-titled debut album). Will that happen? We don't know. Will Taylor announce something within hours, completely making this episode irrelevant? Probably. But did we have fun guessing? DUH.

May 6, 2021

In this special episode, Kressie and friend of the pod, MK discuss the beautiful messiness that is the very short-lived Bleachella era--what happened before, during, and after.

Five Songs About Taylor Swift…and Two That MIGHT Be!

Five Songs About Taylor Swift…and Two That MIGHT Be!

April 29, 2021

Whether it be from fictional characters from a movie (or Shakespeare 😉), past relationships, friendships, or family moments, it's no secret that Taylor Swift often uses real life memories as inspiration during her song writing process. But--did you know Taylor has her very own share of songs written about her?

We start in 2008 to with Stephen's (of Hey Stephen) song about Taylor all the way to present day and the most recent Swift-inspired bop we know of. Tangents include being a Nick or Joe kinda girl, Natalie Portman’s emails, if John Mayer deserves rights, Jessica Simpson's Open Book, and our deep appreciation for Harry Styles. For all links to lyrics, music videos, and interviews referenced, be sure to visit our website www.gfaweekend.com. Here's what we cover:

  • Love and Theft (Stephen Barker Liles) - "Try to Make it Anyway"
  • Jonas Brothers (Joe Jonas) - "Much Better," and "Paranoid"
  • Owl City (Adam Young) - "Enchanted"
  • John Mayer - "Paper Doll"
  • One Direction (Harry Styles) - "Perfect"
  • Harry Styles - "Ever Since New York"

All those other boys... well they're beautiful... but would they write a song for you? (insert Taylor giggle)
