Without question, I listened to more Taylor Swift in 2020 than I have in any preceding year. And this is 100% my favorite song from folklore.
So, everybody liked folklore, right?
Look what you made me do, hj.
Honestly, one of my favorite songs.
2016, you've been a jerk. So for our last Friday Music Day of the year, we're kicking you out and sending the message that we're better off without you. To that end, I'm looking for the best "Shake It Off" songs: songs that help one cast off the old, the bad, the funk, and create a new, fresh, hopeful outlook.
There's an obvious choice here, as suggested by the title. And I do love me that song, but it just seems trivial once you get to the "my ex-man brought his new girlfriend" bit. So I'm going to make two other suggestions. Though neither is particularly "shake-y" they both work an effective reset.
First, the classic... "Take a sad song and make it better."
Second, a newer pick that might be a bit all-encompassing, but it builds so nicely:
Drop your suggestions and random lists if you're felling it.
Excuse me while I mess with the Painter a little bit.
Because why the ★☆★☆ not?
(that happened, like, 3 days ago; quality's not great but this is the best out there so far)
Yeah, haters gonna hate. I still have faith in the wild's game. Ah, shake it off, shake it off.
