Hey twitter it’s time to embarrass myself by revealing what me and my friends thought #Folklore would sound like when we got the tracklist based on nothing other than gut instinct @taylorswift13 @taylornation13
Cute, but v wrong. She could have been a feminist anthem but was not. I like the 1 a lot more as it is. Perplexed over the use of the number apparently? Would give this 5/10 #folklore @taylorswift13 @taylornation13
I just need everyone to look at ‘makes her feel warm and safe like an old cardigan’ EXCUSE ME I THINK I HAVE MIND POWERS. I like the red vibes/referencing call it what you want, this is a solid 10/10 prediction ladies @taylornation13 @taylorswift13 #folklore
We clearly had no clue with TLGAD, confused bcos there’s no royal dynasty - ‘what is this a reference to’ lmao. Kind of on the right line with family lineage? Would give this a 4/10. Bit off and misdirected. @taylorswift13 @taylornation13 #folklore
‘Sampling natural beats’ and ‘fog’ have to be my favourite descriptions of how I think a song will sound along with ‘forest vibes’. Thought this might have music industry references, was wrong. 6/10 rating just for the effort tbh. @taylornation13 @taylornation13 #folklore
More evidence that we have no clue. Linked ricochet to bullets as we weren’t sure what else tends to ricochet. Tried to create weak link to tell me why/tears as emotional weapons and the media’s commentary on her ‘playing victim’. 6/10. @taylorswift13 @taylornation13 #folklore
Lots of good words here that make me chuckle - ‘bells’, ‘folky’, ‘smashing glass sounds’. Predicted dancing/slow dance vibes so this can definitely have an 8/10. @taylornation13 @taylorswift13 #folklore
We once again have no clue, sad is in there twice and we are just trying to create some 7th album/lover link here way too hard. Theory of re-invention is off and this is just overall not a very good guess, 3/10. @taylorswift13 @taylornation13 #folklore
Again, are we okay? I think this is us becoming overwhelmed and just again trying to look for Easter eggs. Misdirected and no funny sound words, 2/10 must try harder. @taylorswift13 @taylornation13 #folklore
Thought this could be about judgements on efforts to speak out politically or about an unusual dynamic in a relationship down to non-standard experience due to limelight. Interesting attempt but wrong, 7/10. @taylorswift13 @taylornation13 #folklore
This is also quite a trash theory, we didn’t believe that she was in the illicit affair so thought it could be a metaphorical affair or that it was from the perspective of someone else. 7/10 for effort, no onomatopoeia so that’s a shame. @taylorswift13 @taylornation13 #folklore
10/10 for accuracy. Referenced the Chinese red string theory of attachment, destined to meet your soulmate and will be forever attached to them in some way. Very cute, straight to the point and accurate!! @taylorswift13 @taylornation13
We thought there could be some funny rhyming in here or a political reference to the nasty women marches in here somewhere. Not awful but not the best, 7/10 for efforts and links. @taylorswift13 @taylornation13 #folklore
Thought epiphany might have themes of changes in perspective and might sound like ‘clouds’, I like this and stand by it. 10/10 for silly words that absolutely don’t describe sound and an attempt at meaningful discourse. @taylorswift13 @taylornation13 #folklore
Wow we really thought Betty was going to be an feminist anthem but instead we got JAMES’ CHEATING ASS. Well off here. Frankly a bit embarrassing but we researched vintage slang for this so I’ll give it 4/10. @taylorswift13 @taylornation13 #Folklore
This was either about demanding for peace in a global context or finding peace within herself. It was neither but we were slightly delirious by this point and were still trying to be ~deep and meaningful~, 5/10. @taylorswift13 @taylornation13 #folklore
This is the worst one, 0/10. Did we even really try? No ideas left. Tried to talk about how themes sometimes come full circle in a TS album and you get a feeling of completeness. @taylorswift13 @taylornation13 #folklore
And finally the lakes, let’s see :))))) @taylorswift13 @taylornation13 #folklore
