Corinne’s Midnights Top 5 Hits

Corinne’s Midnights Top 5 Hits

Midnights review

On October 21st, Taylor Swift released another album, and I am excited to back to review it Shall we start? 

From my Christmas wishes last year; “Don’t worry…I have already requested two things for Christmas: a Red (Taylor’s Version) CD from my father and red lipstick.” Unfortunately I only got one of those things and it wasn’t the CD. 

At 7:30, I went to Target with one goal; securing the lavender edition of the Midnights Vinyl. I was so determined to get this, I asked my dad to arrive at Target as soon as the doors opened. 

I will admit that it was not my favorite album, I think this is the case because it is similar to 1989, reputation, and of course Lover. However, I am a proud of Speak Now, Red, folklore, and evermore Swiftie. But, to honor f tradition, here are my top 5 tracks:

5) Paris (3 am version)– I like the melody to this one a lot. It felt like a strong breeze as you drove around your small town wanting to explore the vast world around you. 

“Like we were in Paris

Like we were somewhere else

Like we were in Paris, oh

We were somewhere else”

4) Maroon– I was not expecting to like this one. It is slightly slower than what I normally enjoy listening to, but I think this one has the most similar vibes to folklore and evermore. I love the lines:

“And I lost you

The one I was dancing with in New York

No shoes

Looked up at the sky and it was maroon”

Once again, Taylor is a lyrical genius. 

3) You’re on your own kid- This reminds me slightly of the song Never Grow Up on Speak Now, which is why it makes the list. When I was younger I loved The Best Day so now I feel like You’re on your own kid is the more mature version of The Best Day

 “I see the great escape

So long, Daisy May

I picked the petals, he loves me not

Something different bloomed

Writing in my room

I play my songs in the parking lot

I’ll run away” 

2) Mastermind- This gives me chills, and I cannot explain why. Once again, she’s a lyrical genius. I love and adore this song. Taylor exposes how she plants easter eggs and the intention of scheming to surprise her fans. 

“What if I told you none of it was accidental

And the first night that you saw me, nothing was gonna stop me

I laid the groundwork and then just like clockwork

The dominoes cascaded in a line

What if I told you I’m a mastermind?

And now you’re mine

It was all by design

‘Cause I’m a mastermind” 

1) Karma– All I have to say is so much energy from this song, even if it was one bar or on volume 22 in my 2006 Matrix. The flow of energy throughout the song is constant. 

“’Cause karma is my boyfriend

Karma is a God

Karma is the breeze in my hair on the weekend

Karma’s a relaxing thought

Aren’t you envious that for you it’s not?

Sweet like honey

Karma is a cat

Purring in my lap ’cause it loves me

Flexing like a goddamn acrobat

Me and karma vibe like that” 

I love listening to Midnights on my lavender edition vinyl. Truthfully for Taylor this is an amazing album. However, I am waiting for Speak Now Taylor’s version. Until then be sure to give the album a listen. You can check it out on Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, Youtube, and other streaming services.
