The Song Remembers When: Taylor Swift – “Mean”

We take you behind the scenes and explore the making of one of our favorite tunes with The Song Remembers When…


In 2012, Taylor Swift was a big winner at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards. She took home Best Country Performance and Best Country Song for “Mean.”

Taylor wrote the song after she received some harsh criticism from a music blogger, but her feelings were that there is constructive criticism, professional criticism, and then there’s just being mean. She said that there is a line you cross when you start to attack everything about a person. And, she admits to having thin skin and that there are times were you just can’t brush off those nasty remarks.

Well, her honesty paid off! “Mean” not only hit the country chart, peaking just shy of the top spot, but it also hit number 11 on the all-genre Hot 100.

It’s this week’s The Song Remembers When – Taylor Swift and “Mean.”
