Anyway, I'm seeing a real female pop superstar tonight.

How was Grande? Into You is one of my outright favourite songs in the past few years. Love it

Hello.

I would like to say:

1) It doesn't sound anything like The National
2) It's good, not a classic.
3) There are definitely (classic Taylor, not new Taylor) poppy songs on here
4) She went the route of 90s girl singer/songwriter, I see.
5) I don't know what anyone who thinks this sounds like Lana is smoking. A girl singing ballads =/= Lana automatically. Just comes across as pretty damn sexist, IMO.

She lifted the vocal melody and cadence of Cardigan right off the last Lana album, which had the same producer. Nothing sexist about pointing out the obvious.

One song is one thing, but like, I've read it about the album overall, and not just her, but EVERY girl from here to Dua Lipa that does a ballad now is apparently copping off of Lana, who is of course only copping off of Winehouse depending on who you ask. It's just very frustrating to me that it's even counted as a criticism instead of being an influence.

My partner is very upset that, as an avid National (and Bon Iver) fan, she has to listen to Taylor Swift.

I mean, does she *have* to? .

Also, I did *not* love non-falsetto Justin Vernon, haha.

Not really a Swift fan, but simply must give this a whirl with Bros Dessner involved.

Cardigan is good, but gives strong vibes of a particular song from the most recent National album which I can’t recall exactly

Light Years! It's basically the same piano line from the verse.

I really like the new record. I also do think it sounds like The National in the production and some of the instrumentation. And that, to me, is just great. I think I need to listen to more of her older stuff. I hopped on with 1989, not thinking I’d like it when mrs. tourist played it for me, but right away get hooked with Welcome To New York (which is still probably my favorite by her that I’ve heard).

This is a great article in which Aaron Dessner discusses every song on the album.
https://www.vulture.com/2020/07/tayl...very-song.html

I am impressed when he describes how fast Taylor (sometimes) writes. He sent out some musical ideas and only a couple of hours later she sent a song back. I do not like everything she does, but I do agree that she is a good songwriter (including some excellent songs).

This thread title is so dumb so I want to go on record saying that it is a direct parody of the legendary Dalton thread "Broken Social Scene ARE the new Menudo!"

https://www.u2interference.com/forum...do-135787.html

Also, folklore is AOTY.

Aaron Dessner produced Cardigan. Dessner didn't have anything to do with Lana's last album. You must be thinking of Jack Antonoff, who did produce a few songs on folklore (not Cardigan) as well as the last Lana album.

And what Lana song specifically did Taylor lift the vocal melody from?

Tell your partner to get her shit together. It's 2020. It's ok to like Taylor Swift now.
