Oscar Wilde said, "One's real life is so often the life that one does not lead." I should've been the one to get to say that.


Quiz Description

On this day in 1989, Taylor Swift, the great prophet of our modern age, was given us. In honor of this august occasion and her distinctive penchant for opening closing a song with the same line, each question below (with one exception) provides the opening lyric to one of her singles (no album tracks this time, for you neophytes, and be warned that it skews less recent) and asks you to identify the song. Get ready for lots of riding in cars and also some walking through doors!
