As Taylor Swift’s self-appointed largest fan I humbly and respectfully ask, what is that this? By this, I imply Swift’s launch of a brand new “chapter” titled the ‘endlessly is the sweetest con’ chapter which I assumed was more new music as a result of she’s obtained nothing else to do in that log cabin studio however write report and ship her candy vocals straight to my half-functioning eardrums. Once I excitedly hopped away from bed this morning to begin taking part in the six tracks on endlessly is the sweetest con, I made the essential error of not studying the titles first. In my half-asleep state, I questioned why I already knew the refrain of the primary monitor and simply assumed that I had lastly achieved oneness with the supply. Because it seems, I’d heard the entire songs already, as all of them seem in Swift’s last albums evermore and folklore.
You understand what just isn’t the sweetest con? This fucking so-called EP. It’s not that I’m mad at Taylor, as a religious Swiftie I made a blood oath to by no means get mad at her. But like, what is that this? Why is that this labeled as an EP in Apple Music when that is primarily a six-track playlist of some songs which might be melodically much like two sibling albums? Why am I upset about this specifically when the sweetest con is the sixth “chapter” to return out of Swift’s pandemic musical period? As a result of I fully and completely forgot about all of the earlier chapters as I believe they’re extremely dumb concepts and wiped them from my reminiscence.
However right here I’m losing the battery life on my good headphones listening to a portion of evermore and folklore as soon as once more, simply as she wished. I assume that on this newish pay attention with these six songs on this particular order I’m purported to garner some new revelation about their that means and fall deeper into the pit of Swift conspiracy theories. However I’m drained and I don’t have time to parse the true that means of “mirrorball,” a track that was barely pleasing the primary time. Not gonna lie although, I’m glad I did take heed to “invisible string” once more, as a result of I’m engaged on a ukulele cowl of that track and the strum sample is killing me.
The principle takeaway from Swift’s chapters being launched as EPs is that spending all that point within the woods has clearly opened her eyes to the significance of recycling and the zero-waste way of life. Why make one thing new when the previous factor hasn’t been totally used up? Taylor Swift, the planet’s champion.
