Poems In English Lit 2023

Paper , Order, or Assignment Requirements

For the following song—“Bad Blood” by Taylor Swift—annotate (at least) 20 different language elements, aspects, devices, usages, and/or meanings. In order to earn the highest number of points possible, make sure to:

· IDENTIFY—clearly mark AND number the 20 parts of the song that you are annotating (you may use bold, underline, or colors, but stay consistent)

· LABEL—clearly label each of the 20 parts of the song you are annotating (remember that labels such as “figurative language” are not specific enough; go further; be more detailed in your analysis)

· EXPLAIN—lastly, clearly explain the meaning and significance of all 20 parts of the song you are annotating (tell how you interpret each element, describe how it relates to the rest of the song, break down its importance, etc.)

Please note that you do NOT have to use complete sentences or paragraphs in this section (although you certainly may if that is how you are most comfortable responding to literary texts). Just make sure that you use complete thoughts. These MUST be your own annotations and NOT those from any other source. I want to see how YOU can demonstrate the literary analysis methods that we have been practicing all semester.

Bad Blood” by Taylor Swift

‘Cause baby now we got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look at what you’ve done
‘Cause baby now we got bad blood

Now we got problems
And I don’t think we can solve them
You made a really deep cut
And baby now we got bad blood

Did you have to do this?
I was thinking that you could be trusted
Did you have to ruin what was shining now it’s all rusted
Did you have to hit me where I’m weak baby I couldn’t breathe
I rubbed it in so deep
Salt in the wound like you’re laughing right at me
Oh, it’s so sad to think about the good times
You and I

‘Cause baby now we got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look at what you’ve done
‘Cause baby now we got bad blood

Now we got problems
And I don’t think we can solve them
You made a really deep cut
And baby now we got bad blood

Did you think we’d be fine?
Still got scars on my back from your knife
So don’t think it’s in the past
These kind of wounds they last and they last
Now did you think it all through?
All these things will catch up to you
And time can heal but this won’t
So if you come in my way, just don’t
Oh, it’s so sad to think about the good times
You and I

‘Cause baby now we got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look at what you’ve done
‘Cause baby now we got bad blood

Now we got problems
And I don’t think we can solve them
You made a really deep cut
And baby now we got bad blood

Band-aids don’t fix bullet holes
You say sorry just for show
You live like that, you live with ghosts (Ghosts)
Band-aids don’t fix bullet holes (Hey!)
You say sorry just for show (Hey!)
You live like that, you live with ghosts (Hey!)
Hm, if you love like that blood runs bad

‘Cause baby now we got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look at what you’ve done
‘Cause baby now we got bad blood

Now we got problems
And I don’t think we can solve them (Think we can solve them)
You made a really deep cut
And baby now we got bad blood

‘Cause baby now we got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look at what you’ve done (Look at what you’ve done)
‘Cause baby now we got bad blood (Woah)
Now we got problems
And I don’t think we can solve them
You made a really deep cut
And baby now we got bad blood (Hey!)
