We cried with her, we laughed with her and we celebrated with her. Whether you’re a fan of her or not, without a doubt there has been one of her songs that you can personally relate to.

Taylor Swift's Best Songs
I have always loved Taylor Swift. Was I always her biggest fan? No, definitely not. I've always liked her music (usually just the popular songs), but never really understood how people had such strong opinions towards her, positive or negative. Until now.
Taylor Swift has an incredible way with words when it comes to pouring out her feelings for guys she was in a relationship with, wants to be in a relationship with, or is in a relationship with. She keeps nothing inside because she wants everyone to know about the guy who broke her heart. Thirteen is T-Swift’s magic number, so here are 13 magical songs that guys need to add to their playlist.
It's no secret that Taylor can write a song and somehow we all feel it deep in our hearts. I have come to realize that some of her songs just hit different. Maybe not all songs are 'my ex is the worst' but I'll highlight the lines that you are going to want to keep in your back pocket.
If you know me, you know I love Taylor Swift. I challenged myself to pick a favorite from each album, which unfortunately I quickly realized was not going to be possible for me. So, here are my top THREE from each (in no particular order, of course)
More Taylor Swift: Hidden Gems & Hot Takes
Over the years, as an observant T Swift fan, I've noticed her penchant for mentioning ages in her songs. Maybe she does this so she can look back on these songs and remember how old she was when she had these experiences. Or maybe she does it so her fans have another level to relate to her on. By my count, Taylor Swift mentions 13 different ages in her songs.
Soon after Taylor Swift released "evermore," I knew that I needed to combine two things that make me happiest in this life: Taylor Swift and the enneagram. Swift's "evermore" is the type of album with songs for everyone.
There are songs to cry to, songs to scream in the car to, and songs to jam out to at Olive Garden to ("no body, no crime," anyone?). This is truly a no-skip album, and regardless of your enneagram type, each song has a relatable message.
Taylor possesses an enchanting way of crafting songs that deeply connect with a broad audience. A significant aspect of this universality stems from her innate ability to thread narratives into her lyrics, demonstrating that her music encapsulates not just scenes, but entire stories.
While Taylor Swift hasn’t actually penned any novels corresponding to her songs, there are many books that can relate to her albums. Here are books that you should read based on your favorite Taylor album!
The highly-anticipated Taylor Swift documentary, "Miss Americana," that dropped on Netflix on January 31 is the first real in-depth look into Taylor's personal life and her history. With an initial Rotten Tomatoes score of 86% and a premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, director Lana Wilson and Swift were excited to share this with her fans and the entire world. This documentary was described as a "revealing" look into the superstar's life. I would agree.
Taylor Swift is a household name in the music industry, with a career spanning over a decade. She has won numerous awards, broken records, and impacted the industry in ways that few other artists have. Taylor Swift is undoubtedly one of the most successful and influential musicians of our time. With over 200 million records sold worldwide, she has won numerous awards, her success has not only cemented her place in the music industry but also made her a role model for young musicians.
Taylor Swift showed us a different side of her in her recent Tiny Desk concert with NPR. If you are a hardcore Swiftie, this was everything you could have wanted from her and more. Right now she is on fire with "Lover" recently being released. It is so great to finally get to know a happily in love and unadulterated Taylor Swift. If you are a Swiftie and haven't seen this performance yet, take the next 28 minutes to do so.
A three-and-a-half-hour runtime. Nine Eras. Eleven outfit changes. Three surprise songs. Zero breaks. One unforgettable evening. In the past century, no other performer has put on an electric performance quite like Taylor Swift, surpassing her fans ‘wildest dreams’. It is the reason supporters keep coming back to her shows each year. Days later, I’m still in awe of the spectacle ‘Miss Americana’ puts on every few days in a new city. And, like one of Taylor’s exes, has me smiling as I reminisce about the memories of the night we spent together.
“All Too Well” is largely regarded as one of Swift’s best-ever songs, a heartbreaking encapsulation of a breakup (and before anyone says it, she writes tons and tons of songs not about breakups or even relationships, its just that when she does write about relationships ending it’s done perfectly). The song has been streamed over 100 million times on Spotify. It features heartbreaking lyrics. We are finally getting a 10-minute version. And now we’re also getting a movie.
After we got our paper and wristbands we all called our family to tell them we were meeting Taylor after the show and the service in the stadium was spotty so we couldn't hear much of what they were saying to us over the phone but I all I remember saying was "I can't hear anything you guys are saying but we're meeting Taylor after the show okay bye!"

I remember when I was just nine years old, I wrote a fan letter to you. I loved and adored your music from the very first song I ever heard, Teardrops on My Guitar.
Over the years, you became not only an inspiration to me musically but also someone I looked up to as a writer, as a woman. I loved the poetry behind your lyrics, the compassion you felt and expressed to everyone you met and even those you didn't. [READ ON]
