Taylor Swift dropped her highly-anticipated Fearless re-recording on Friday, April 9, and fans are pumped. “Fearless was an album full of magic and curiosity, the bliss and devastation of youth,” the singer wrote on Instagram.” “It was the diary of the adventures and explorations of a teenage girl who was learning tiny lessons with every new crack in the facade of the fairytale ending she’d been shown in the movies.”
This re-release is exciting, obviously, and interesting. Because we’ve heard these songs before, there’s not much to dissect and analyze, like new Taylor Swift albums of the past. That being said, Fearless (Taylor’s Version) does have six new songs. And stans, naturally, are decoding them down to the last letter.
Below, check out the dominant theories about these from-the-vault gems.
“You All Over Me” (featuring Maren Morris)
What’s it about: Swift has physically moved on from a relationship, but the emotional residue still lingers. “Swore that I’d get out of here/But no amount of freedom gets you clean/I’ve still got you all over me,” she sings.
Who fans think it’s about: Joe Jonas.
The evidence: For one, Jonas and Swift dated in 2008, around the time this song was born. Plus, fans see similarities between “You All Over Me” and “Last Kiss,” a Speak Now favorite that’s allegedly Jonas-inspired.
“Mr. Perfectly Fine”
What’s it about: A cheeky, country banger in which Swift takes an ex to task. He’s apparently emerged from their relationship unscathed (or, wait for it, perfectly fine), but Swift is not. “Hello, Mr. Perfectly Fine. How’s your heart after breaking mine?” she sings.
