  2. On my list, "ME!SS" found rotting tied for last place at #142 with "I Heart ?".

  3. ddd and I Heart? isn’t even terrible as a song, I just found myself voting against a lot of debut era songs because her vocals back then were not it.
     
  4. Still waiting for a studio version of her version of Better Man

  5. Pointless list alert.

    So after I drove 10 hours this week and listened to nothing but Swift my album ranking has sort of really changed.

    I can’t add folklore in because I realise how much my opinion has changed when you listen to them all back to back.

    Speak Now
    Red
    Fearless
    1989
    Lover
    Reputation
    Debut

    The first three are stone cold classics. I think with Red had it been a double disc Poppier/pop country affair it would be even more perfect.

    Speak Now is perfect minus Better Than Revenge.

    Fearless was the album to me for years it holds so many memories and I remember pre ordering it from Barnes and noble as I couldn’t find it anywhere else in the UK and waiting weeks for it and completely falling in love with the whole thing.

    1989 is great of course but I think when I compare it lyrically with the first three it feels a little sleight.

    Lover is a brilliant mixed bag like Red but it suffers for me with moments like Paper Rings, London Boy. The acoustic ep really shows how brilliant the songwriting is and if the whole album was done live in that way I think it would probably be my top choice.

    Reputation is big moments but it’s the least Taylor album of hers and that holds it back but if anyone else released this it would be a top notch album.

    The Debut just suffers from weak vocals and cheap instrumentals, really the leap from that to Fearless on all levels shows her growth.

    So that’s my pointless assessment and I’m pretty sure folklore woll float within that top three it’s currently number one but we shall see next year.

  6. Now where is that scarf?
     
  7. Had a bit of a break from listening to Taylor.

    And then Getaway Car came on shuffle.

    Outstanding.
     




  8. But wow...what a moment. I will never forget.
     
  9. Treacherous will forever be the one.

  12. "All Too Well" is the best thing she ever did. Still.
     
  13. Still remember crying in my car in the middle of the morning to All Too Well on the way back from Target. Now that's history!

    Still remember 16 year old me frantically searching for the frenchman's name and being very sad that there were like two other pictures of him on the internet.

    I don't know if she's ever going to top "State of Grace" for me, but "august" came very, very close.

    My favorite album of hers, even if I can admit it’s not her best.
     
  17. Holy Ground is my favorite song of hers. The build up is just... Immaculate.

    Tonight, I'm gonna dance
    For all that we've been through
    But I don't wanna dance
    If I'm not dancing with you
    Tonight, I'm gonna dance
    Like you were in this room
    But I don't wanna dance
    If I'm not dancing with you

  18. Treacherous remains breathtaking and among her best ever work. "Nothing safe is worth the drive" is such a perfect, succinct lyric.

  19. The way the production swells like a wave crashing over you when "two headlights shine" breaks in...ugh. Transcendent.

  20. This is honestly up there with the album version for me. It takes an already stunning song and strips it back enough to make it sound more...introspective. When she was like 23 singing the original, it sounds bombastic and more like a celebration of a whirlwind of a relationship and this version, all these years later, sounds more like quiet appreciation and introspection of a story that's got dust on every page. Ugh.
