After a lot of anticipation, Taylor Swift’s concert film The Eras Tour finally hit the theaters last week to rave reviews and record-breaking box office numbers. Swifties around the world were head over heels to finally see it on the big screen, but they were disappointed by one aspect of the film—the songs that didn’t make the final cut.

Since The Eras Tour covers 10 albums of Swift’s illustrious career, its tracklist is pretty long, but not as long as her full discography. The singer’s fans would like to hear all of their favorite songs in The Eras Tour, but some of them simply couldn’t fit into its 169-minute runtime.

The Eras Tour was filmed during Swift’s concerts at Los Angeles’ So-Fi Stadium on August 3-5, and seven songs she performed along the way didn’t make it to the film. The eagle-eyed fans noticed she omitted, “The Archer”, “‘Tis the Damn Season”, “No Body, No Crime”, “Long Live”, “Seven (Interlude)”, and most shockingly “Cardigan”, the lead single for her eighth studio album Folklore.

Leaving these songs out didn’t stop The Eras Tour from taking the theatres by storm. The concert film was praised by the critics for doing a great job capturing the show’s spectacle and energy, and it grossed $129 million so far, including $100 million in pre-sales alone!
