I think one of my main issues with the song - next to the repetitiveness of the chorus - is that the chorus kind of lacks power, especially in comparison to the amazing pre-chorus. I Know Places has a similar vibe to LWYMMD for example and it’s one of my favourite songs from 1989, but the key difference is its incredibly powerful chorus. I feel like if this issue wouldn’t be there I’d actually really love the song!
I still can’t believe I was Straight™ for like fourteen years, I look back on it and just ??? How??? Child, did you never see a girl? And nonbinary folks are like legit ethereal deities, how did you survive not knowing you were pansexual how
