Coming in #5 on my list is a very random single from Lover and that’s “Me!” featuring Brendon Urie. While the song is a lot of fun, it doesn’t really do much and with an era like Lover, everything feels like it has a meaning and is purposeful. However, there’s nothing wrong with having a song for fun which is exactly what “Me!” is.
While I don’t think this represents the era in the slightest, it’s a fun summer song and that’s exactly what this album can be. Adding Brendon Urie in there wasn’t a bad idea and I feel like these two sound great together. However as I’ve said in plenty of these posts before, Taylor Swift usually sounds best on her own. Either way, that’s why “Me!” ended up being a the bottom of my list.
4. “The Man”
Coming in at #4 on my list is another song that just ended up being at the bottom because I preferred the others and that’s “The Man.” At first, I went with another song but I chose this one because I was relistening and this one just ended up at #4. While it’s a good song, this is another one that doesn’t really wow but it has such a great message that I couldn’t put it too low on my list.
“The Man” is essentially talking about how the media mistreated Taylor and said that if she was a man, she’d be celebrated but since she’s not, she’s criticized. This is such a fun concept for a song and I’m sure is one a lot of us can relate to. Plus the beat and lyrics are just so fun to dance and sing along with. While it doesn’t get as much love as the other ones on this list, it’s still one I enjoy and listen to over and over again.
