"Bad Blood Remix" Lyrics

Bad Blood Remix feat. Kendrick Lamar Lyrics (Single)

[Chorus - Taylor Swift:]
Cause baby, now we’ve got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look what you’ve done
Cause baby, now we’ve got bad blood, hey!
Now we’ve got problems
And I don’t think we can solve ‘em
You made a really deep cut
And baby, now we’ve got bad blood, hey!

[Verse 1 - Kendrick Lamar:]
I can’t take it back, look where I’m at
We was on D like DOC, remember that?
My TLC was quite OD, ID my facts
Now POV of you and me, similar Iraq
I don’t hate you but I hate to critique, overrate you
These beats of a dark heart, use basslines to replace you
Take time and erase you, love don’t hear no more
No I don’t fear no more, better yet respect ain’t quite sincere no more

[Pre-Chorus - Taylor Swift:]
Oh, it’s so sad to
Think about the good times
You and I

[Chorus - Taylor Swift:]
Cause baby, now we’ve got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look what you’ve done
Cause baby, now we’ve got bad blood, hey!
Now we’ve got problems
And I don’t think we can solve ‘em
You made a really deep cut
And baby, now we’ve got bad blood, hey!

[Verse 2 - Kendrick Lamar:]
Remember when you tried to write me off?
Remember when you thought I’d take a loss?
Don’t you remember? You thought that I would need yah
Follow procedure, remember? Oh wait you got amnesia
It was my season for battle wounds, battle scars
Body bumped, bruised
Stabbed in the back; brimstone, fire jumping through
Still, all my life, I got money and power
And you gotta live with the bad blood now

[Pre-Chorus - Taylor Swift:]
Oh, it’s so sad to
Think about the good times
You and I

[Chorus - Taylor Swift:]
Cause baby, now we’ve got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look what you’ve done
Cause baby, now we’ve got bad blood, hey!
Now we’ve got problems
And I don’t think we can solve 'em
You made a really deep cut
And baby, now we’ve got bad blood, hey!

[Bridge - Taylor Swift (Kendrick Lamar):]
Band-aids don’t fix bullet holes
You say sorry just for show
You live like that, you live with ghosts
(You forgive, you forget but you never let it go)
Band-aids don’t fix bullet holes
You say sorry just for show
If you live like that, you live with ghosts
If you love like that, blood runs cold!

[Chorus - Taylor Swift:]
Cause baby, now we’ve got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look what you’ve done
Cause baby, now we’ve got bad blood, hey!
Now we’ve got problems
And I don’t think we can solve 'em
You made a really deep cut
And baby, now we’ve got bad blood, hey!

[Chorus - Taylor Swift:]
Cause baby, now we’ve got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look what you’ve done
Cause baby, now we’ve got bad blood, hey!
Now we’ve got problems
And I don’t think we can solve 'em
You made a really deep cut
And baby, now we’ve got bad blood, hey!

"Bad Blood" Music Video featuring Kendrick Lamar

Without further adieu, here is the "Bad Blood" featuring Kendrick Lamar music video from Taylor Swift's 1989 album.  Although I'm not a big fan of rap I think it fit well with the song.  The music video is fun and certainly start studded.  It features Taylor as Catastrophe and Selena Gomez as Arsyn.  I think it needed another minute or two of intro honestly to set up the plot and characters.  It was a little confusing what had happened to Selena and Taylor in the beginning.  It would have been cool to feature them as friends somewhere else besides this new world and had them forced to become enemies, as often happens with war.  Good job Taylor on setting us all on fire!

*The only other thing I wish about the video is I wish Taylor wasn't trending towards the style of dress she is, sultry and sexy.  If she wants to its okay, but I hope she isn't being pushed by stylists to present a certain image.  I see it far too often with many pop stars, they feel they need to show more in their craft and are pushed. At other times in their life they have been uncomfortable showing that much.  Let's take a step toward feminism and say no to having to dress like that to get more album sales etc.

"Bad Blood" Song Meaning

Today's Taylor Swift song is the meaning of "Bad Blood" from her 1989 album.

I have heard varying opinions on this song in the Taylor fandom, but I personally relate to this song to the T.  There have been people in my life that have just started ignoring me for no reason, been mean to me for no reason, and many tears have been shed. Unfortunately it doesn't end with high school.  When I first heard about this song I knew I would relate to it, and every time I hear it, it speaks to me.  For me it's a way to release myself of the unjustified hate that others bring on me so I can focus on the real relationships that matter to me in my life.

Click here for the music video for "Bad Blood".



Taylor tells Rolling Stone on September 8, 2014, "Sometimes the lines in a song are lines you wish you could text-message somebody in real life. I would just be constantly writing all these zingers – like, 'Burn. That would really get her.' And I know people are going to obsess over who it's about, because they think they have all my relationships mapped out. But there's a reason there are not any overt call-outs in that song. My intent was not to create some gossip-fest. I wanted people to apply it to a situation where they felt betrayed in their own lives."  I can definitely relate this to my life.

Who is this song about?  For not wanting to give it away in the song, Taylor gave it away in the article. She tells Rolling Stone, "For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not.  She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, 'Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?' She did something so horrible.  I was like, 'Oh, we're just straight-up enemies.' And it wasn't even about a guy! It had to do with business. She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me. And I'm surprisingly non-confrontational – you would not believe how much I hate conflict. So now I have to avoid her. It's awkward, and I don't like it."

Who stole Taylor's people?  It was Katy Perry.

Katy and Taylor came on the music scene about the same time and were seen together at many events.  Taylor desperately wanted to be friends with her.  Katy was always the wild and crazy one when they were together.  But their relationship grew strained over the years as each went on their paths.



Katy stole some of Taylor's dancers and crew from her "Red" tour for her "Prism" tour.  An ex dancer of Taylor's Lockhart Brownlie, who formally danced with Katy told Manika Dadson Dec. 20, 2013, "I was with Taylor for the first six months. It was a great experience and she's a great person to work with, but then Katy contacted us." And the rest is history, or a song in this case.

The tour is not the only thing these two had in common.  They both dated John Mayer, a guy Taylor has written about many times.  I think Katy was jealous of the feelings that John had for Taylor.  In his song "Paper Doll" he describes his relationship with Taylor.  He says, "sure was fun being good to you". He confesses he looks back fondly and enjoyed being with her.  "You’re like twenty-two girls in one/And none of them know what they’re runnin’ from/Was it just too far to fall?/For a little paper doll". He references her song 22 from "Red" and says she was the one who ran.  Then he also references her parents, saying she should, "cut the cord and pull some strings."  In her song "Ours" she also references her dad not approving of his tattoos. In "Dear John" she says her mom doesn't approve of the relationship either.  Things ended by her just not responding anymore.  She "stopped pickin’ up" the phone calls from him  and "Dear John" "is to let you know why."  In the "Story of Us", Taylor says she never knew "what page you're on", she never knew where they were standing.  "Paper Doll" was an answer to her "Speak Now" album of song about him.  Basically he didn't know why she ran away and he enjoyed being with her.  Well for Katy that probably wasn't the thing she wanted her boyfriend to be singing about.  Telling an old girlfriend that he enjoyed her.  Katy here set herself up for failure though, she was the one that was dating her "friend's" ex-boyfriend.  You just don't do that if you're friends.

After that I can only imagine that Katy was like ice to Taylor, mean to her etc and that's why Taylor was hurt.  First she started her dating her ex-boyfriend and then she stole her dancers.  She probably also wasn't very kind to her in passing.  Taylor says in her track by track descriptions, "Bad Blood is a song that I wrote about a new kind of heartbreak that I experienced recently which was when someone I desperately wanted to be my friend and thought was my friend ended up making it very obvious that she wasn't. This was somebody that I really looked up to and really really longed for the approval of this person so it was kind of devastating to receive a kind of low blow from that person.   This song is the first time I ever really stood up myself in that relationship cause she was always the bolder one and the louder one. I think it's important to stand up for yourself even if you can only really come up with the courage to do it in song form then that's how you should do it."

She certainly does that in this song.  She calls out Katy, talks about how they used to have "mad love", but she's "still got scars on my back from your knife" because she "made a really deep cut". and they can't "pretend we'd be fine".  They've "got problems", and she doesn't think they can "solve them".  Katy brought this on, she didn't "think it all through".  She did things to intentionally hurt Taylor.  But Taylor is not going to take Katy's "sorry just for show".

I think Katy grew jealous of Taylor through the years.  Even though they started out the same time Taylor has had infinitely more success than Katy.  And worse yet for Katy, Taylor had a little piece of her boyfriend's heart.  Katy did all these things for spite.  Honestly I don't know how to resolve this.  I've resolved my Katy Perry's by moving away and never having to talk to them again.  It would be nice if they could just get in a room and talk it out.  There was a person in my life that this sort of thing started happening.  She called me out and we went and duked it out in the rain.  Well not really duking because it was just words.  And you know what? She became one of my best friends.  Now everyone that I've had those sort of problems with have I become best friends, sometimes I just ignore them.  I hope this situation with Katy doesn't blow up even more.  I know Katy is egging it on.  I am glad Taylor is just standing up to her, ignoring her and concentrating on the people that really matter in her life.  Keep strong Taylor and don't let her get to you!

"Bad Blood" Lyrics

Bad Blood Lyrics (1989 album)

Written by Taylor Swift, Max Martin & Shellback

Chorus:
'Cause baby now we got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look at what you've done
'Cause baby now we got bad blood
Now we got problems
And I don't think we can solve them
You made a really deep cut
And baby now we got bad blood

Did you have to do this?
I was thinking that you could be trusted
Did you have to ruin what was shiny
Now it's all rusted
Did you have to hit me?
Where I'm weak, baby
I couldn't breathe and
Rub it in so deep
Salt in the wound
Like you're laughing right at me
Oh, it's so sad to
Think about the good times
You and I...

Chorus

Did you think we'd be fine?
Still got scars on my back from
Your knife so
Don't think it's in the past
These kind of wounds
They last and they last now
Did you think it all through?
All these things will catch
Up to you and time can heal,
But this won't
So if you coming my way,
Just don't
Oh, it's so sad to
Think about the good times
You and I...

Chorus

Band-aids don't fix bullet holes
You say sorry just for show.
You live like that, you
Live with ghosts...
Band-aids don't fix bullet holes
You say sorry just for show.
You live like that, you
Live with ghosts...
If you love like that, blood runs cold

Chorus

"Bad Blood", "I Wish You Would", "All You Had to Do Was Stay", "Style",and "Out of the Woods" Introduction

Today's Taylor Swift SONGS are the introductory meanings of the songs; "Bad Blood", "I Wish You Would", "All You Had to Do Was Stay", "Style", and "Out of the Woods" from her 1989 album. They are featured in the Rolling Stone article, "The Reinvention of Taylor Swift" from September 8, 2014.

Who is each one about?

The Rolling Stone article gives us some clues.

"Bad Blood" is about Katy Perry   Taylor told Rolling Stone, "For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not. She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, 'Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?'" Then last year, the other star crossed a line. "She did something so horrible, I was like, 'Oh, we're just straight-up enemies.' And it wasn't even about a guy! It had to do with business. She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me. And I'm surprisingly non-confrontational – you would not believe how much I hate conflict. So now I have to avoid her. It's awkward, and I don't like it." 

She wanted to make sure people knew it was not about a boy, "But I just want people to know it's not about a guy. You don't want to shade someone you used to date and make it seem like you hate him, when that's not the case. And I knew people would immediately be going in one direction." (Rolling Stone)

Katy stole some of Taylor's dancers and crew from her tour.  An ex dancer of Taylor's Lockhart Brownlie, who formally danced with Katy told Manika Dadson Dec. 20, 2013, "I was with Taylor for the first six months. It was a great experience and she's a great person to work with, but then Katy contacted us." And the rest is history, or a song in this case. Click here for a detailed analysis of this song.

"I Wish You Would" is "about an ex who bought a house two blocks from" Taylor's place. (Rolling Stone)

"All You Had to Do Was Stay" is "about a guy who was never willing to commit (ditto)." (Rolling Stone). Click here for a detailed analysis of this song.

"Style" is "a sexy Miami Vice-sounding throwback about a guy with slicked-back hair and a white T-shirt and a girl in a tight little skirt." (Rolling Stone) Click here for a detailed analysis of this song.

"Out of the Woods" (click here for the updated analysis of "Out of the Woods")  is quite possibly the song I am most excited for from this new group.  It is "a frantic tale" about her relationship with Harry Styles where she says "'every day was a struggle. Forget making plans for life – we were just trying to make it to next week.'" They even ended up in the hospital following a snowmobile accident in Utah in December 2012 because he "lost control and wrecked it so badly that she saw her life flash before her eyes." They both had to go to the ER, but Taylor wasn't hurt as bad.  She said that they went to the hospital and asked everyone to not say anything, and no one did.  (You revealed your own secret Taylor!)
 Harry had a banged up chin, "Remember when you hit the brakes too soon/Twenty stitches in a hospital room." (lyrics from "Out of the Woods"). (Rolling Stone)



I am so excited for all the new songs and can't wait to hear all of them! Don't forget I'll include some more detail analysis once we have the songs in hand.
