This interesting behind-the-scenes series is a fun glimpse into Swift's personal creative process as she works on the tracts that appear on her album. The Making of a Song also showcases the length of time and the amount of effort it takes for her to produce a single song -- it's not a quick process most of the time.

Swift is likable throughout, but hearing her belt out the same lyrics over and over again in an effort to get them right can be tedious for those not interested in the songwriting process. Nonetheless, fans of the singer will appreciate the look into her private world.
