If you’re a T-Swift fan like myself, you remember the excitement of when Taylor announced that she was going to release Folklore. If you’re not a T-Swift fan, I must inform you that Taylor announced Folklore the same day she released it. She gave us one of the greatest gifts an artist can give to their fans: an album that they don’t have to wait for!
One of the really cool things about Folklore is that it tells stories about both Taylor herself and other characters: some happy, most sad, and all emotional. I enjoyed trying to figure out which songs were about Taylor and which ones weren’t. I even analyzed and talked about the album with some of my friends. After all, Folklore was one of the most exciting things that happened this summer because of COVID-19.
My favorite song from Folklore is “Exile,” and some of my close-second favorites are “My Tears Ricochet,” “Illicit Affairs,” and “Cardigan.” I love listening to sad songs, even when I’m happy. My favorite more upbeat songs on the album are “Betty” and “The Last Great American Dynasty.” However, I like every song on the album and seriously don’t think there’s a bad one.

The music video was brilliantly done under unusual circumstances due to COVID-19. Taylor wrote on her Instagram that she wrote/directed the “Cardigan” music video, took safety/healthy precautions because of COVID-19, and did her own hair, makeup, and styling. T-Swift is such a queen!!
