But you don't give him credit for being a better singer than most rappers

Taylor did an interesting thing here : She released five Playlist on Apple Music, sorting her songs in to the Kubler-Ross Five Stages of Grief (Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression/Sadness, Acceptance). Fascinating to see how she views some of her songs (Lover is in the Denial Playlist ). It will give me some different mood music. Of course Anger is the best one. I had to search for the Playlist on Spotify, since they're not official there, but they're easy enough to find and save.

The fact that Lover is in the denial playlist is very much an after the fact reclassification, because during her Tiny Desk Concert she talked about how Lover was a happy song.

Well, most of the time, we're not aware that we're actually in denial until after we've moved on.

of course. but it was YEARS before their breakup. If it truly was a song about being in denial or she truly was in denial at the time, versus being in a happy relationship that years later became unhappy, and knowing how Taylor mines her personal life for her songs, I think we would have seen evidence of a deeply unsatisfying/unhappy relationship in her work, and it's just not there. All my opinion, of course.
