Overview

The goal of {taylor} is to provide easy access to a curated data set of Taylor Swift songs, including lyrics and audio characteristics. Data comes Genius and the Spotify API.

Installation

You can install the released version of {taylor} from CRAN with:

install.packages(taylor)

To install the development version from GitHub use:

# install.packages("remotes")
remotes::install_github("wjakethompson/taylor")

Example

There are three main data sets. The first is taylor_album_songs, which includes lyrics and audio features from the Spotify API for all songs on Taylor’s official studio albums. Notably this excludes singles released separately from an album (e.g., Only the Young, Christmas Tree Farm, etc.), and non-Taylor-owned albums that have a Taylor-owned alternative (e.g., Fearless is excluded in favor of Fearless (Taylor’s Version)). We stan artists owning their own songs.
