Today's Morning Edition music is from Taylor Swift with "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," which was released on her album "Red" five years ago this week.
It was Swift's first song to reach No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100.
The song describes Swift's breakup with her then boyfriend, assumed to be actor Jake Gyllenhaal.
In an interview with USA Today, she said, "He made me feel like I wasn't as good or as relevant as these hipster bands he listened to. So I made a song that I knew would absolutely drive him crazy."
