As a lowercase girl myself, the significance of this cannot be understated. And yet. A lowercase girl album, like a lowercase girl, signifies ambivalence, nonchalance, and unfortunately, a Trojan horse of emotional terrorism. Thursday morning, July 23, Swift announced a surprise album and music video were set to drop that Friday at midnight.
Lyrically, this is one of the best (if not the best) songs on the album.
“the 1” is a playful yet melancholic doom fantasy of what could’ve been, in which Swift muses, “it would’ve been fun, if you were the one.” Personally, I believe folklore is a PsyOp, and “the 1” is the first blow of a 16-piece psychological attack intended to break every last person who hasn’t yet been broken by quarantine. When Taylor said, “You wear the same jewels that I gave you, as you bury me,” I launched my great-great-grandmother’s jewels into the sea.
IMO “peace” is about feeling like you’re simultaneously too much and never enough and wanting to be with somebody but knowing you’ll ruin their life by self-sabotaging and it’s also about romanticizing toxic and messy relationships and creating fantasies out of doom and gloom and heartbreak. Aaron Dessner confirms: folklore is Taylor Swift’s goth record. Why do we feel better after a good cry? It's one of Taylor's most mature and dark songs, and obviously the coronavirus connection makes it especially poignant right now. I would love to hear someone like Billie Eilish cover this song.

Britney Spears Is ‘Afraid of Her Father,’ Loses Bid to Remove Him As Conservator, The pop star is fighting back, saying she won’t perform “if her father is in charge of her career.”. There is just “my tears ricochet.”. Some have mused that Swift was named after James Taylor, and thus James is her, and that Elizabeth is Karlie Kloss’s middle name, and thus Karlie is Betty. This is what happens in The Revenant, I think — as far as folklore aesthetics go, I identify as more of a Nell bitch than a Revenant slut. “You never gave a warning sign,” he complains; “I gave so many signs,” she responds, and the way their voices overlap, you know they’re both right.

You’re better than all lowercase girls??? She gently leads you into the tone of the new album while providing a transition from the album before. “the 1” is just oiling you up for your own annihilation.
Part 2 of the love-triangle trilogy sets a story about cheating against the LP’s lushest arrangement: a gorgeous weave of strings and horns and guitars that demonstrates the depth of Swift’s writerly empathy on “Folklore.”. “epiphany” sounds like a choral arrangement of hexed porcelain dolls and is about witnessing trauma. The melody matches the lyrics: no one likes a mad woman. Taylor's always had a focus on colors and nostalgia, and this song blends both.

*Sorry, there was a problem signing you up. Last night I dreamt I was dashing through thorny brush in a black forest, bloodying my legs in desperate search of a clearing in the trees. Taylor Swift invented String Theory, which if you didn’t know, is the scientific theory that soul mates are bound together by one invisible Swiftian String. Singing tenderly over hushed acoustic guitar, Swift traces an affair from thrilling rendezvous in “beautiful rooms” to tawdry “meetings in parking lots.”. But Swift’s feat signals more than the intense devotion of her audience, members of which splurged on various deluxe editions clearly meant to goose her numbers. It feels like it never builds to anything, sort of like "It's Nice To Have a Friend" — but for some reason, it worked better in that song. BETTY. I feel like people may have me for this one, but as much as I love Bon Iver, this song just doesn't really do it for me. “my tears ricochet” is the “Delicate” of folklore. “exile” is weepy and cinematic in all the right ways.
Here’s what I care about: You know what’s gay? The first time I listened to this song, I knew it'd be the best on the album.

Every Taylor Swift album has to have at least one fun song, and honestly, this is the only really fun one to me, so that alone earns it a top five spot. I don’t ever want to hear a woman singing about another woman, only to feel duped, like I’m waking up in Black Swan and have hallucinated all of the steamy lesbianism. The PsyOp of incepting people on the brink of madness comes to a sweeping close in “hoax,” in which Swift finally punted me off the bridge of sanity. Using this album to tell others's stories was a really unique and genius move on Taylor's part, and I love how she uses it to make an impact here while still keeping it personal (with her grandfather). After staging a viral drum battle on social media, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl finally met his 10-year-old opponent, Nandi Bushell, via video chat. But first, some housekeeping: It must be noted that each song on folklore and the album title are stylized in lowercase letters. The groundbreaking gay mountaineer is thrilled.

So, there is a theory, one that’s probably correct, that “illicit affairs” is one of three songs Swift referred to in a YouTube comment as “The Teenage Love Triangle.” All three songs are written from each person in the love triangle’s POV: “illicit affairs” being from the POV of girl who the boy cheated with, “betty” being from the POV of the boy, and “cardigan” being from the POV of Betty. As a lowercase swiftie, this is displeasing to me. bon iver: Do you think you’re better than Taylor? Other noted lowercase girls include Lykke Li and Ariana Grande, and Swift and folklore sit on the shoulder of such chill giants.
You can feel Swift’s low-burbling fury leaking through her teeth when she sings, “What do you sing on your drive home?
Great vocal too, by turns whimsical and luscious.
Three musical acts, including Rascal Flats and Lady A, had to bow out due to positive COVID tests. Some have noted that Swift used the names of her friend Blake Lively’s kids, James and Inez, who are both girls, for this song. Taylor's breathy voice dances flawlessly over the melodic piano, and the music video is gorgeous. But for me, the most interesting thing about this song is Swift’s refusal to capitalize “american” in the title, which is explicit proof that Taylor Swift is a communist. "Peace" feels like an ending song to the album, and I wish it came after "hoax," which has more meat to it.
The emotional terrorism continues: “I’ve never been a natural, all I do is try, try, try, I’m still on that trapeze, I’m still trying everything to keep you looking at me, because I’m a mirrorball.” This was very hurtful to me, a mirrorball.
