Top Ten Song Titles to Finish the Lyric "I'm Sorry. the Old Taylor Can't Come to the Phone Right Now. Why? Oh, 'Cause She's..."

Martin_Canine
You know, in the past I have not really checked out that much by Taylor Swift, just her big hits that were on the radio. I thought they were quite decent, but I never felt the urge to buy one of her albums.

That may change because since it was released, this "Look What You Made Me Do" song is stuck on replay on my phone. I must say that it is really an outstandingly infectious pop song. It is not unlikely the catchiest song of the year.

After the bridge which appears after the second chorus, there is a short skit of Taylor saying "I'm sorry. The old Taylor can't come to the phone right now. Why? Oh, 'cause she's dead."

Now I had my fun thinking of all possible reasons why the old Taylor may not be able to come to the phone.

The Top Ten

1 Chained to the Rhythm - Katy Perry Chained to the Rhythm - Katy Perry

Why? Oh! Because she's chained to the rhythm! That's funny

Get it? Because it's Katy... and when you are chained you can't move and... aahh, I'm clever. - Martin_Canine

2 Screwing You On the Beach At Night - Bloodhound Gang Screwing You On the Beach At Night - Bloodhound Gang

...but don't you dare think that in any way means she'd ever talk to you other than during sex"
(Sorry, that may was respectless) - Martin_Canine

3 In My Room - Insane Clown Posse In My Room - Insane Clown Posse

...and sorry, but it took me so long to get her there, and any distraction could compromise my chances."
(Again, sorry. Nothing against Taylor or women) - Martin_Canine

4 On Fire - Lil Wayne

"AARGH HELP I'M STANDING IN FLAMES! I'M ON FIRE, I'M BURNING AARGH THAT HURTS HEE-"
"Taylor, phone for you! "
"Oh, thanks! Hello who's there?... oh, hi Nicki! No, I'm not mad at you for having teamed up with Katy. I mean, after all, it's not feud and-... wait a sec, something smells burned... oh, it's me... AARRGGHH IT'S ME! HELP I'M ON FIRE! " - Martin_Canine

5 Scared of You - Nelly Furtado

Sounds legit! - Gg2000

I know I wouln't wanna talk to someone I'm scared of. And Taylor surely has some freaky overly obsessed fans. - Martin_Canine

The sheer fact that there's a song with this name cracks me up. - Rocko

7 Livin' On a Prayer - Bon Jovi
