Taylor Swift has said that at each stop on her Eras tour, fans can expect two surprise songs. Otherwise, the setlist is already known for this weekend’s concerts at Met Life Stadium.
And what’s the song everyone hopes she’ll play? The one we’ve all been waiting for? The one she hasn’t played at all yet?
“Welcome to New York”, of course! Here’s why we’d love to hear that one, and a look at a few others who, if she played them, would make our night.
‘Welcome to New York’
“The lights are so bright, but they never blind me!” Swiftites say, “Welcome to New York (New York), we’ve been waiting for you, Taylor!”
Here’s another New York reference – Cornelia Street in New York’s Greenwich Village is the street she lived on. “‘I’m renting a place on Cornelia Street,’ I said casually in the car.” She really did! It was a townhouse at number 23, according to People magazine.
She hasn’t played “Our Song” for 2 months. Bring it back! It’s a fan favorite song.
‘Return in December’
Taylor Swift hasn’t played much from her ‘Speak Now’ album, and with her reissue coming out in July, we want to hear it.
Go ahead, play “Dear John”, and let John Mayer be done with the humiliation.
‘I almost do’
Swift’s quintessential song about longing and heartache.
“The Highway Doesn’t Care”
After singing about Tim McGraw, Swift joined McGraw for a duet on his “Two Lanes of Freedom” album for this song about what really matters. This is NJ, we know our highways don’t care. McGraw is on hiatus from her tour.
Daylight was the last song from “Lover”, it’s light and breezy but serious at the same time, and can’t you see the MetLife stadium all lit up with phones on?
“Bigger Than All the Sky”
Swift sings “Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, you were bigger than all the sky.” It’s another song about loss (natch) but it could also be interpreted as fans giving Swift a boost in her career.
