Updated on June 21, 2014

Introducing Taylor Swift and Picture to Burn

Taylor Swift is an extremely talented singer-songwriter whose first album the self titled Taylor Swift shot up the Country Music charts soon after it's release on October 24, 2006.

Who would have thought that a 16 year old Country Singer Songwriter could have a huge hit with her debut album, but Taylor Swift did just that, reaching fifth place in the Billboard Top 200, and staying at the top of the Country Album Charts for 24 weeks in a row.

Not only was her debut album an enormous success, it gave rise to 5 hit singles, the first of which Tim McGraw firmly establishing her as a talent to be reckoned with. After that there followed Teardrops On My Guitar, then Our Song, this track Picture To Burn and finally, Should've Said No.

Taylor Swift is not only a highly talented singer and songwriter, she is a charismatic drop dead gorgeous blonde, a combination that has let to her quickly reach superstar status. Her music easily crosses over from Country to Pop, and as such her fan base has quickly spread worldwide and she is well known outside of the Country Music genre.

Song Lyrics: Picture To Burn

Picture To Burn - Taylor Swift from her debut album Taylor Swift released in 2006

Written by Taylor Swift.

State the obvious,

I didn't get my perfect fantasy

I realize you love yourself more than you could ever love me

So go and tell your friends that I'm obsessive and crazy

That's fine; you won't mind if I say

And by the way...

I hate that

stupid old pickup truck

You never let me drive

You're a redneck heartbreak

Who's really bad at lying

So watch me strike a match

On all my wasted time

As far as I'm concerned you're

Just another picture to burn

There's no time for tears,

I'm just sitting here

planning my revenge

There's nothing stopping me

From going out with all of your best friends

And if you come around saying sorry to me

My daddy's gonna show you how sorry you'll be

'cause I hate that

stupid old pickup truck

You never let me drive

You're a redneck heartbreak

Who's really bad at lying

So watch me strike a match

On all my wasted time

As far as I'm concerned you're

Just another picture to burn

If you're missing me,

You'd better keep it to yourself

Cause coming back around here

Would be bad for your health...

'cause I hate that

stupid old pickup truck

You never let me drive

You're a redneck heartbreak

Who's really bad at lying

So watch me strike a match

On all my wasted time

in case you haven't heard

I really really hate that

stupid old pickup truck

You never let me drive

You're a redneck heartbreak

Who's really bad at lying

So watch me strike a match

On all my wasted time

As far as I'm concerned you're

Just another picture to burn

Burn, burn, burn, baby, burn

You're just another picture to burn

Baby, burn...

      There is absolutely nothing like a country song to express emotion! Loved the video.

      I'm not up on the modern culture, so, unfortunately I'd not heard of either song nor Taylor Smith, so I did learn something. I was unable to listen to the video because my ISP can't seem to deliver without delays every second, and that stresses me out and takes the fun out of watching. I'm sorry I missed the videos, since I know I would have enjoyed them.
