Back on November 10, 2010 at the 44th Annual CMA Awards Show, Taylor Swift first performed her current single “Back To December.” A performance many, myself included, said was her best awards show performance to date. That performance was soon after released as a video and featured here at GACTV.com. Now comes the full concept video for her current single, the third track on her platinum selling album Speak Now.
Taylor’s track record of penning payback songs and releasing videos directed at her past romantic wrongdoers is well documented. This time, in her brand new video for “Back To December,” Taylor is the one with some explaining to do.
“The person I wrote this song about deserves this,” she said in an exclusive interview with E! News. “This is about a person who was incredible to me, just perfect to me in a relationship, and I was really careless with him…This is a song full of words I would say to him.”
Although never confirmed, there has been ongoing speculation and gossip that “Back To December,” arguably the saddest song on her album, is based on her relationship with actor Taylor Lautner. No matter the motivation, the song is beautifully written and the video does an excellent job of bringing the story to life. This emotional, artistic clip plays out a like a short film and definitely leaves you wondering if these two broken hearts will ever find their way back to together again.
Leave me a comment and let me know what you think about the video…
