Positive messages

The overriding message of these six new songs is that romantic relationships can be tough -- and while Swift doesn't shy away from expressing occasional frustration and sadness about them, she also doesn't advocate staying too long in relationships that just aren't right.

Positive role models

Taylor Swift continues to be a strong role model, maintaining both a super successful career and a respectable personal life.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that like all of Taylor Swift's music, her new FEARLESS PLATINUM EDITION CD/DVD is great for tweens: it contains nothing offensive, yet it's relevant enough for young adults to like.

What's the story?

Teen country singer Taylor Swift has fueled the flames of her sizzling hot career by releasing a "platinum edition" of her second CD titled Fearless, which itself has gone quadruple platinum. The new CD/DVD contains six new songs on top of the 13 that appeared on the original album, along with an altered cover, dozens of new photos from her 2009 Fearless Tour, music videos, and additional video footage of Swift. Like the dozen-plus tunes that came before, the six new tracks are squeaky clean, foregoing graphic language and content in favor of a realistic yet wholesome look at dating and relationships.

Is it any good?


Taylor Swift deserves very big props for writing almost all of her own songs, something that most of her contemporaries don't do. While her tunes, including these six new ones, aren't necessarily great feats of songwriting prowess, they are consistently and solidly good -- from their well-articulated themes of young relationships that make them so relatable to her adoring fans to Swift's lovely if not exceptionally powerful voice. 

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about Taylor Swift's career. How has she managed to become enormously popular without making a media spectacle of herself?

  • Though she's a huge star, what are some things that Taylor may have in common with any teen her age?

  • Do pop singers have a responsibility to be role models? Why or why not?

tween girls will love it, but really not for younger kids

The music is really good. Taylor is an amazing singer. The songs are awesome. Some parents may think it inappropriate for younger kids, but my 8+9 year old sisters love it. Also for tween girls it gives amazing insight on someone else's "boy-problems" really gooe though, if you are a tween girl you should at least listen to it.

Taylor Swift Does it again with her Platinum Edition of Fearless

Over as usual Taylor Swift's Platinum Edition of Fearless is Age approved and this time there is no dirty words like the other one on track 2,3 and 5 did but this one has one song that has a line on track 8 originally track 2 on the original edition of fearless now I don't if it has the line in this it's been a very while since I listened to both and the song is called Fifteen and in the line she says "Abigail gave everything she had to a boy that changed his mind" but in radio version she says a different line over all the Platinum Edition of Fearless and standard edition of Fearless is squeaky clean. The Platinum Edition includes a DVD also and everything is clean but the video to You Belong with Me has a scene where Taylor Swift and her co-star kiss in the end

Fearless Platinum-Broken Down

Taylor Swift is an amazing role model and musical artist. Her music is always clean and she doesn't wear anything to revealing on the cover, in the DVD or in the lyric booklet. I'll break it down- "Jump Then Fall" is a playful, catchy tune about a crush that you would always be there for. "Untouchable" is a soft, calm song about someone who is out of reach. "Forever and Always (Piano Version)" shows the softer side of "Forever and Always" (which I'll tell you about later). "Come in with the Rain" is another calm-ish song. "The Other Side of the Door" is just a flat-out catchy song about regretting a fight you had. "Superstar" is a cool song about a celebrity crush. "Fearless" is a powerful song about a first date and feeling fearless when you're with someone in particular. "Fifteen" is like a warning to girls to look before they fall. "Love Story" is a Romeo-Juliet song about a guy that Taylor's parents didn't like. "Hey Stephen" is a catchy song with plenty of mm-mm-mm-mm's in it. "White Horse" is a sad song about someone who let you down. "You Belong With Me" is that awesome, upbeat song about the girl next door. "Breathe" is a sad song about losing a friend. "Tell Me Why" is catchy and it's basically saying "Why did you hurt me? I didn't do anything to deserve it." "You're Not Sorry"- The title says it all. "The Way I Loved You"... not sure how to describe this one. "Forever and Always" is a song about breaking a promise to always love someone. "The Best Day" is a sweet song about the good times Taylor had with her mother. "Change" is an inspiring, powerful song about staying strong and persisting through good and bad. The DVD includes music videos, behind the scenes of the music videos, some tour photos, and a little comedical number with T-Pain. It's a little song called "Thug Story" and it's basically... well, I'm gonna let you listen to that one.
