burning-witch

everyone’s out here picking their favourites off rep and I’m like???

cause ready for it is the best mix between dreamy and bad ass?? And joe can be her jailor?? And every love she’s known in comparison is a failure??? And the sultry chorus??? Baby let the games begin??? He actually joined the heist and they retreated to an island with the breeze and lights down low and no one knew???

then end game has the rapping and Taylor hitting them like bang and burying hatches but keeping maps of where she put them??? and Future and Ed????? what did we do to deserve this??? The echoes in the chorus??? Big reputation????

and then I️ did something bad slams any man who ever talked shit and still expected something from a girl??? Her not even being sorry???? Burning witches?? Light me up?????

And don’t blame me is this beautiful melodic masterpiece of what trying to find love is like?? Taylor talking about how Joe changed how she acted in relationships??? She’s his daisy???? High on his love, his touch is the trip of her life???? The background vocals???

And delicate???? Isn’t it??? Do I️ need to say more??? The heartbreaking realization that Taylor thought her reputation that the media made up would prevent her from having this relationship??? The vocoder…. the fast pace verses and slowed down chorus’ representing how she was feeling all of these things so intensely right off the bat but when she actually thought about it she had to slow it down cause is it too soon to do this yet???

And look is a classic and we already know that song has had our heart from the very first note and Taylor taking a stand for herself is the most amazing thing to happen in 2017??? all she thinks about is karma?? You’ll all get yours?? old taylor is dead???? she’s the actress starring in your bad dreams???

And so it goes…. the metaphors like my magician, gold cage hostage to my feelings, wear you like a necklace….. tripping, trip, tripping….. scratches down your back…. you did a number on me…. 123…like come on!!!

And gorgeous had us all shook cause it’s 100% about Joe and she stumbled on home to her cats… alone??? She might sink and drown and die??? She had a boyfriend but he was in the club??? Joe’s so gorgeous???? The background vocals in the last stanza???

And getaway car, it’s the best of times and from the first note til she was saying bye in a getaway car we were taken on such an emotional trip??? She needed a reason to leave him?? Sirens to the beat of his heart??? Go! Go! Go!???? Left him at a motel bar??? Flying, crying, dying, riding and said goodbye in a getaway car???

And king of my heart is like a kiss directly on everyone’s heart?? If you’ve never felt love before you felt it through this song and we can see more than ever how happy Joe makes her???? Salute to me??? We rule the kingdom inside my room???? School girl crush??? Plastic cups??? All at once this is enough????

And dancing with our hands tied Taylor literally is being so vulnerable in sharing how she didn’t think their relationship would work when exposed to all the asshats(media) and turned this into such an intriguing and relatable song??? He turned her bed into a secret oasis?? It’s not a piano song like you would have suspected from the intro??? Like how their relationship isn’t what you think it is???

Dress???? Taylor basically wrote sex in a song?? She’s drunk in the bathtub with Joe??? The bridge where it shows that it’s more than just sex!?!! Her one and only her life line??? He saw the truth in her worst lies??? His buzzcut and her hair bleached???

This is why we can’t have nice things??? This is the biggest shade that had ever been thrown???? she tried so hard to be kind and giving??? They broke the nice things so she took them away??? She heard all the things they said about her!!!! Therein lies the issues friends don’t try to trick you get you on the phone and mind twist you???? Shady????? Here’s to her real friends and her baby and her mama and not you™ cause forgiveness isn’t the thing to do??? The cackle????? They didn’t care about the he said she said???

Call it what you want???? This song is everything??? Her and Joe??? Love??? She don’t care about what the media has to say??? She’s building forts and laughing with her lover??? She wears his initial on a chain round her neck not cause he owns her???? She loves him so much?????

New Years Day???? She wants his midnights when it’s fun and romantic AND wants to take care of him and do the stuff that isn’t as fun???? Cause love??? Squeeze my hand three times in the back of the taxi??? She stays through it all??? Hold on to the memories they will hold onto you!!!!!????? Please don’t ever become a stranger who’s laugh I️ could recognize anywhere??? The piano fading at the end??? It doesn’t end???? Even when you think it has????

Like there is no favourite?? Each time a song comes on it is my favourite in that moment??? Like rep is my favourite ok????

My baby’s fly like a jet stream, high above the whole scene:


You’re so gorgeous, I can’t say anything to your face… cuz look at your face:


They’re burning all the witches even if you aren’t one:


I did something bad, why’s it feel so good? RA DI DI DI DI DI DA DAH DA DAH:


I once was poison ivy but now I’m your daisy:


I’m spilling wine in the bathtub:

czechs-and-holdings  asked:

"Hurr Budurr in the Middle Ages The Catholic Church was objectively evil and burned witches! Nevermind their founding of colleges and construction of hospitals and early forms of social welfare!"

Also ignoring the fact that witchburning as a practice didn’t start until it became a political reaction to the rapid societal changes at the turn of the 16th century. The book on witches which established this whole idea of witchburning, the Malleus Maleficarum, Maleficas, & earum hæresim, ut phramea potentissima conterens was, for one, not published until 1487, and two was BANNED by the Catholic Church. Plus it was only really widely read in Protestant territories.

before criticizing someone online, ask yourself if you’ve:

YOU GUYS TAYLOR USED “THEYRE BURNING ALL THE WITCHES” FOR A REASON. She’s referencing the witch trial’s where woman were burned at the stake for being witches when in fact they were not. It’s alluding to the Kanye drama that started the “Taylor Swift is over party”, snake jokes and other drama and jokes about her. Taylor’s reputation had been burned at the stake!! gif by: http://reputaetions.tumblr.com/

being a witch

what people expect: potions and pentagrams everywhere, probably a raven as a pet, blood rituals and animal sacrifices, lots of evil laughter, worshiping the dEVIL 

reality: i found this rock and i thought it was nice so now i keep it under my pillow, also i can’t remember if i blew out that candle and i’m worried i’m gonna burn my house down 

taylor’s standing on something that says “they’re burning all the witches” and I’m assuming this is a reference to the salem witch trials in the sense that powerful and outspoken women are feared and hunted down.

Taylor is a powerful woman who has spent her entire career being demonized by the media— basically, there’s been a witch hunt for her, and her actions/mistakes are heavily scrutinized mostly on the basis that she is a woman. The media also spins this narrative that she has this “witchy” effect on men (“stealing hearts and running off and never saying sorry”).

Basically, I’m pretty sure this video is showing that aspect of her “reputation”, and calling out the media/society for trying to tear down and undercut the success of powerful women. And I’m so here for it.
