Taylor Swift’s New Song References and Their Meanings 

Taylor Swift’s newly released The Tortured Poets Department is making waves over social media. Music enthusiasts are really enjoying the lyrics and music of the song. But they have some questions in their mind. 

Taylor Swift’s 11th era album, “The Tortured Poets Department,” came out on Friday. In the title track of her album, Taylor mentioned some names of individuals and places. 

Let’s see whose names the singer mentioned in the song;

Taylor Swift sings, “I laughed in your face and said, You are not Dylan Thomas. I am not Patti Smith. This is not the Chelsea Hotel. We are modern idiots.” So, she mentioned two individuals, Dylan Thomas and Patti Smith, and one place, Chelsea Hotel. 

Who is Dylan Thomas?

Dylan Marlais Thomas was a Welsh poet and writer. The special thing about this writer was that he got huge appreciation from the audience but never got enough financial support for his art. Thomas was born in 1914 and died in 1953. 

Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night, Fern Hill, Under Milk Wood, etc were some of his classics. 

Who is Patti Smith? 

Patti Smith is a popular poet, songwriter, author, and painter. She was born in 1947 and is still active in songwriting. On Thursday morning, she did a book signing in New York City. 

Chelsea Hotel 

Chelsea Hotel, located in Manhattan and built in the late 19th century, has been a residence for artists, including singers, songwriters, poets, and other musicians. Most artists have some memories associated with the hotel. 

In addition, Taylor Swift says in the song, “You told Lucy you would kill yourself if I leave, and I had said the same to Jack about you, so I felt seen.” So, who is Lucy, and who is Jack? 

Lucy Dacus is an American singer, producer, and songwriter. She has some links with Taylor Swift. Jack is likely her friend and collaborator, Jack Antonoff.
