Sweet Nothing – 8/10
Swift co-wrote this song with her boyfriend under his pseudonym, William Bowery. Swift and Alwyn also co-wrote several songs on her previous album, “Evermore,” and fans were excited to find out they would collaborate again on “Midnights.” This song is just like its title, sweet. The lyrics describe the pressure Swift feels is placed on her shoulders and finding comfort in her partner who asks of only “sweet nothing” from her. The simple, sweet lyrics are accompanied by a soft piano and beautifully blended harmonies. This song does not stand out like other tracks on the album, but its simplicity is what makes it special.
