    allegedly it is "It's Nice to Have a Friend" and one sessioner described it as "a ME! twin" while another said it was "cringy"

    18 songs is too many IMO

    She always has some duds- I'm looking forward to my annual task of re-ordering a Taylor Swift album to make it make sense because she is so bad at sequencing.

    How is Me almost the last song, maybe thematically it makes sense but mood wise it's an opener

    yeah, i'd like to get past that song asap, so it bums me out it's so deep in the tracklist, haha. the whole time i listen to this i'm going to be like "these songs are all pretty good, but god dammit, i know Me is coming up soon....." I really don't like that song. I didn't love the second single either. "The Archer" is fine as an interlude kind of track, but as a stand alone song, it's only meh. I hope the track that follows it is a banger.

    Red was 19 tracks. (Deluxe version anyway, 22 if you count the demo recordings.) I trust Swift with an 18 track album.

    Especially because there are bound to be a couple I don't care for. Means there's still plenty left for me to love.

    "the archer" is totally brilliant. like a beautifully textured song with a build that doesn't quite arrive at catharsis and therefore feels like this boiling-beneath-the-surface feeling, plus her best lyrics since... idk, red. stands on its own just fine

    I'm always sad when I listen to the vinyl of Red that it doesn't have those three bonus tracks. Would be perfectly fine if those had just been on the record.

    The 3 songs are great, but they also feel like bonus tracks to me

    i love "the moment i knew" and "girl at home" but i'm not mad they aren't on the album, not nearly to the degree that i'm mad about "new romantics"

    New Romantics should’ve been the album closer. Wonderland should’ve been the opener.

    I’m pretty set in this belief now.

    "clean" is a perfect closer so i'm of the opinion that "new romantics" should've opened 1989, even though i no longer hate "welcome to new york"

    Clean has to be the closer, no question

    All 3 of the 1989 bonus tracks should have been on the album, but "Clean" is just such a great closer. I have never come around on "Welcome To New York" and actually think I have liked it less and less as time has gone on.

    Yeah, “Clean” is an all-timer and the only song that could cap that album. Unless you want “New Romantics” as the epilogue or something.

    Just the whole style and energy of "New Romantics" says opener to me much more than closer.

    where would i be if i was my brain Supporter

    She should have gone the route of having the lead single be on the deluxe version/bonus track.

    Well at least for 1989 and Reputation
