She is better than Beyonce

I thought Reputation was a great album.

Agreed on both counts.

Doesn't everyone leave the Christmas lights up until January?

In this week's Target insert there's a promotion where you get a $5 gift card if you buy ALL FOUR exclusive editions. At $18 a pop, that's kinda crazy, but I guess I could see some of her superfans doing that. Maybe pooling with their friends. Last time Target had two different magazines for the album. (I'm pretty sure my niece got both.) They're really stepping things up.
What is the thing that is different if you buy each deluxe version?

my best guess would be the cover and how empty your bank account gets...

Heh. My first thought based on the names of the listings was that they are coming in 1 disc, 2 disc, 3 disc, and 4 disc editions, but at that price I guarantee I read it wrong. (It'd help if it was listed as "Target Exclusive Edition #3 CD" rather than "Target Exclusive Edition 3 CD".)



The covers look the same, so they will likely be different posters, journals, pictures, and maybe the voice memos.

Listened to it 3 times today. Another great album. Every album since Red I've loved.

I like it. Many good tracks. Glad to see another catchy kiss-off to an ex-boyfriend open the album.

She is probably the Madonna of this generation and one of the rare artists that can sell CDs

Pop, it would be her, Adele and Beyonce. No men, no bands.

I bet a lot of country artists sell CDs though. I've noticed that both Sheryl Crow and Don Henley have followed Darius Rucker's lead and moved into the Country genre to sell records again. Cynical, but it probably works.

I was in a target store and they had them all out and there is no difference other than the label and no explanation about how they differ.

Except for a few songs, I hated Reputation but this album is a terrific return to form for Taylor. Miss Americana and the Heartbreak Prince is my favorite track.

I think this one is way better than Reputation as well.

Target's plan for multiple exclusive CDs was insanely dumb.

What do you guys think of "If I Were a Man*? I find it an interesting song. I keep wondering if she is right and we are overly critical of her for being a woman She's not wrong about how we view dating around for men and women. But mostly I think she gets criticism not for being a serial dater but because she writes a hit song for every break up which makes it far more noticeable than if she were quiet and discreet.

Re: Taylor Swift -- Discussion Thread

I was just curious about something. How many of y'all actually affectionately call your significant other your "lover"? My wife and I have been together for about 24 years and I don't think I've ever referred to her by that term, except maybe jokingly. It just sounds odd to me.

I agree with Tina Fey who once said on 30 Rock that that particular word should only be used between the words "Meat" and "Pizza".

Lovers tend to be those that are not in a committed relationship. Chicks that I randomly bang I call my "lovers." It's an archaic word, though. Classy, too.

I thought her solo performance on SNL of "Lover" was quite good.

Plus, she's still hot as all hell with crazy to match.

I liked the VMA performance better of Lover better and she was hotter during that performance with that purple outfit.
