Part of me loves “London Boy” because it’s poppy and I love pop music, but it’s just so painfully “goes to London once. ” I’m also a Kaylor—which means I ship Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss, Swift’s (rumored) former best friend and the subject of many Internet conspiracy theories—and this song is exclusively about her current boyfriend, Joe Alwyn.
Everyone has a Taylor Swift song they can’t listen to without crying. (I think. ) “Enchanted” is mine, with those “wonderstruck” feelings of love at first sight which fully activate with the lyric from the bridge, “Please don’t be in love with someone else.
To say this song was highly anticipated was an understatement: I watched a livestream that counted down to the music video release and tracked every clue Swift dropped about her upcoming single like fucking gay Dana Scully (so, Dana Scully).
The title track of the album is a Taylor Swift song in its purest form: a colorful, painted photograph of love and loss.
It’s “skip” bait for me. I don’t think “Me! ” is Taylor’s worst song ever—but it was her first major single release in the two-year gap between Reputation and Lover—a long wait for a superfan.
