Re: Taylor Swift -- Discussion Thread

I bought my wife a copy of Speak Now from Taylorís website about a month ago so on Iím on the email notifications list now. Had no idea how many vinyl color variants she releases for her albums. A bit much in my opinion.

She and her team really know how to milk FOMO. In the same way I donít bemoan the Kardasians from making money, I donít Swift either. I just donít like it.

Iím not a huge fan of Taylor Swift but I also donít dislike her. Just not music Iíd seek out on my own but since my wife likes her I end up hearing her fairly often. I do like some of her newer material more.

The FOMO tactics and limited items are excessive though. Luckily my wife isnít that hardcore about every release but just not sure who needs multiple copies of an album just for different colored records.

I hope Target also carries the Sunrise vinyl

I buy most of her albums at Target over Amazon which is rare because of the bonus songs.

Too bad the bonus song isn't also on the CD. I have resisted getting into vinyl as I know how I am...

Bravo to Ian Eagle for the sly Taylor reference on Travis Kelce's first TD reception of the season.

You know he had that ready to go, hoping that Kelce obliged with a catch that worked (didn't have to be a score).

After getting her fans to solve a collective 33 million word scramble puzzles, Taylor has announced the titles of four of the five Vault tracks on 1989 : TV.
Yes, I helped out last night.

One of the funnier things I read about Taylor's engagement with fans to get them to reveal the titles is that she turned Google into a Saw puzzle/trap. Maybe I read this on AV Club, but it did make me chuckle.

All 4 special edition colored vinyls are back in stock for only 48 hours (or until they think they can sell some more).

It shows front and back if you go to the site to order. This is just the image of the 4 together that I got in my email.

Okay, fifth Vault song is "Slut!" which I assume is going to be a single, based on title alone. No collaborations, based on that cover, which is a bit of a disappointment, considering people had anticipated team ups with Harry Styles, Kendrick Lamar, Nikki Minaj...

I wonder why she never released Afterglow as a single or music video when Lover came out in 2019?

It would have been a huge hit.

Thought I would post this here rather than piss off the NFL thread people. Of course the talk of the town has been Travis Kelce and Taylor. After she enjoyed the game with his mom, he bought out a local restaurant. It was announced to the customers that they must leave at 8pm and all their tabs were paid. The rest of the Chiefs joined the group to party until 2am.

And it was reported his jersey sales increased 400% when she was shown at the game. I guess you'll see more of them at her shows. Gotta have a bracelet and a jersey now.

The NFL has certainly embraced the new attention. Here is their Twitter page :

Might as well embrace it. Maybe convert some Swifties to watch some football, if they're not already.
