Taylor Swifts Discusses Songwriting With Harper's Bazaar


Taylor Swift talks songwriting with legendary songwriter Pattie Boyd in the latest issue of Harper's Bazaar.

"There are definitely moments when it's like this cloud of an idea comes and just lands in front of your face, and you reach up and grab it," Swift says. "A lot of songwriting is things you learn, structure, and cultivating that skill, and knowing how to craft a song. But there are mystical, magical moments, inexplicable moments when an idea that is fully formed just pops into your head. And that's the purest part of my job. It can get complicated on every other level, but the songwriting is still the same uncomplicated process it was when I was 12 years old writing songs in my room."

"I don't know what it is that makes some people really creatively inspiring. There have been people I've spent a lot of time with who I just couldn't write about. It's just that some people come into your life and they have this effect on you. It's really interesting because in your case you inspired that creative output from two iconic musicians. That just blows my mind. It's very rare!"
