Dear 100 Hour Board,
What did y'all do to Taylor Swift? And what exactly did you make her do?
-The Old Bookshop
Dear The Old Bookshop,
The real question is what haven't we done to poor Taylor. I mean, it's not like this is the first time she's sung about being done wrong.
I hope someone else answers you that actually liked this song, because I didn't. It's boring and sounds one-dimensional. The musical style was different than her other stuff (again), but the lyrics had the same theme as most of her previous hits. The rhythm feels off on the chorus. Her singing style doesn't match the emotion she's trying to convey with the lyrics. I could go on, but I think I won't.
This text from my cousin feels relevant.
Dear Olde Bookshoppe,
We apparently made her write a song with a chorus that sounds almost exactly like "Too Sexy for My Shirt."
When I turned 22, I thought back to all my Facebook friends who would post Taylor Swift lyrics when they reached that same birthday. Since I am very much not a fan of hers, for my birthday resolution I decided not to listen to any Taylor Swift song for a full year.
I obviously haven't listened to the song. But I didn't realize she would take my resolution this hard.
I watched T-Swizzle's music video just for this question. Here are my thoughts on that: "..."
But speaking of music videos, here's a fantastic music video that you never knew you needed in your life until now (pro hint: watch with subtitles so you can know the lyrics--unless you speak Korean, in which case you have my deep respect).
That's an unusually wholesome K-pop song. Cool.
I agree with something The Entomophagist remarked in a comment—it might be even better not knowing what it was about.
