  1. Wonderland is the only song I don't fuck with. Its terrible and faceless.

    I Wish You Would, How You Get the Girl, and I Know Places are all good but also the ones I'm most inclined to skip.

  2. It's awkward as fuck and should have been left out entirely and given to that Alice film. She knows it too, being the only track not performed on tour consistently. Poor anyone who got it at their date. You can hear the cogs turning in her head as it plays. "Let me write about...WONDERLAND!"
  3. I like Wonderland....

  4. I like "Wonderland" too. Thematically it's just like "Blank Space", but totally different in tone.

    The two tracks I can't play are Shake It Off and I Know Places.

    Trash and trash.

  6. Bad Blood is the only song on the album I don't like.
  7. I'm fondly recalling Mama VanBoobs saying her favorite off the album was Blank Space "because it doesn't sound like all the others."
  8. Bad Blood was so much more enjoyable before it became a single.
  9. The chorus harmonies in Bad Blood are gorgeous, I just wish they were part of a better song.

    Also, I can't listen to the verses and not hear "One, Two, Buckle My Shoe" anymore thanks to @IMHO.

  11. Shake It Off is the only one that I uniformly skip.
  12. I wish You Are In Love was on the regular album instead of, say, I Know Places. It's so simple but effective.
  13. On shuffle, I will skip:
    • Welcome to New York
    • This Love
    • Wonderland
  14. This Love is one of my favorites. The lyrics, the melody, the way she sings... I love it
  15. I have not a single qualm against it other than it being a bit boring, but if I'm going through the album I always give it the time. You Are In Love could take its spot in an instant, though.
  16. This Love and You Are In Love are the worst ones to me.
  17. Wonderland is well produced trash. Has good aural moments but it doesn't what it wants to be in this life.

    It's just the most tired literary reference point in...history. It's lame for her. It's a lame song that could have popped off potentially. The bridge is ok until the "In the end in Wonderland we both went...m a d". It's all very heathledgerasjokerfuckyeah.tumblr.com. Searching "Harley Quinn Steampunk" on Deviantart.

    Y'all are gonna come for "Wonderland" when the lead single and "Bad Blood" are sitting right there as the biggest pieces of shit on the album huh? "Wonderland" at least has the decency to descend into a hook-filled cacophony. The other two are just weak.

  19. This Love is that atmospheric 80's college rock bop - all damp bedrooms and dreamy thoughts.

  20. I loathe 'Shake It Off' until that horn riff comes in on the second chorus and then it has me for all of 6 seconds and then I go back to hating it.

    I actually use the single version of 'Bad Blood'. It's dumb as fuck but it's brash and loud enough to pop off, with Kendrick's assistance.
