Top 20 Taylor Swift Music Videos
Start writing a post

I know I'm not alone when I say I'm a Taylor Swift fanatic. Taylor has blessed us with beautiful country songs to fun pop tunes to heartbreak ballads, with gorgeous music videos. Here's a trip down memory lane- a top 20 countdown of the best Taylor Swift music videos of all time.

20. Tim McGraw.

The fact that this video is over 10 years old makes me feel old. You can tell by the video quality and Taylor's trademark curls.

19. Our Song.

In this 2009 video, Taylor is hair goals, makeup goals, skin goals, dress goals, everything.

18. Mean.

Mean is an absolutely beautiful song and video that takes down bullying, and sets an example for kids being bullied everywhere. The video features a schoolboy holding a fashion magazine being bullied by football players, and a little girl eating her school lunch in the bathroom because she isn't accepted by the other girls. This is a gem from the 2010 Speak Now era.

17. We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.

The popular conclusion regarding this song is Taylor wrote it about her ex-boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal. But the more important question here is how does Taylor look so good in pajamas? She can literally pull off any look.

16. I Knew You Were Trouble.

2012 Red era Taylor Swift is probably my favorite. This one's definitely about Harry Styles.

15. Style.

Taylor somehow gets more beautiful in every music video? I don't know how this is possible?? Also, it's pretty much confirmed this one is also about Harry Styles, because hello, Styles?

14. Twenty Two.

Inspiring birthday Instagram captions since 2012. The soundbite when Taylor says, "who's Taylor Swift anyway? Ew" in the background makes me laugh every single time.

13. Picture To Burn.

How can you not love teenage-angst Taylor Swift who just got her heart broken for the first time? Apparently this one is about her high school boyfriend Jordan Alford, who dated and eventually married one of Taylor Swift's girl friends and classmates.

12. Out Of The Woods.

The verdict of Out Of The Woods is it's about Harry Styles. Remember when he and Taylor spent New Year's Eve together in New York City? I do.

11. Begin Again.

A truly revolutionary moment in Taylor Swift history. This song and video tells a beautiful story of moving on from a bad relationship (may or may not be Conor Kennedy) and learning to start over and love again.

10. White Horse.

I think I speak for all of us when I say I wish I looked as good crying as Taylor does.

9. Everything Has Changed, featuring Ed Sheeran.

I still ship Taylor and Ed Sheeran. In this video, their kids meet in school and fall in love, and it's pretty much the cutest thing ever. Can they get married and have kids already please?

8. Back To December.

Rest in peace the Taylors: Swift and Lautner. This song was Taylor Swift's debut with straight hair, and the beginning of an era.

7. Love Story.

Taylor was 17 when she wrote this song. When I was 17 I was eating cereal after school and worrying about boys. Long live Fearless.

6. Teardrops on My Guitar.

TALK ABOUT CLASSIC. Every girl cried over her middle school crush to this song at least once. In case you were wondering, the "Drew" in this song has since been arrested.

What blows my mind is when Taylor Swift made this music video, she was still in high school. Fun fact: Taylor was already on tour with Rascal Flatts by the time her high school senior class was graduating. She got her high school diploma via mail.

5. Wildest Dreams.


This beautiful film by Joseph Kahn captures the pain of a lost love affair. The video gives me Katy Perry vibes, with Taylor's black curly wig, and features of wild animals, but I'm not complaining.

4. You Belong With Me.

ABSOLUTELY CLASSIC. I jammed to this in seventh grade and still do in college. If you can listen to this song and not sing all the words, you're doing something wrong.

3. Shake It Off.

The most fun I've ever had watching a music video. Taylor is actually a comedic queen.

2. Bad Blood, featuring Kendrick Lamar.

This superhero-esque movie depicts Taylor as a red-hot badass, alongside celebrity friends like Selena Gomez and Lena Dunham. Rumor has it the song was written about Taylor's enemy, Katy Perry.

In the title scene, Selena Gomez pushes Taylor out of a building, and she lands atop a car. The scene is reminiscent of "the most beautiful suicide," an iconic photo taken in 1947 just moments after a woman committed suicide by jumping out of the Empire State Building and landing a top a car. The image comparison is below.

1. Blank Space.


Blank Space, in my opinion, is the best Taylor Swift music video of all time. She encompasses the reputation everyone says she has, as the crazy man-eater who brings in one guy after the next, and because this is so not her, it's hilarious. In the video, Taylor features her pet cat, throws her lover's cell phone into a fountain, and takes a golf club to his luxury car. What more could you ask for?

First and foremost, shame on you for encouraging the patriarchy and sexism as you police a female's clothing choices. You cannot control our bodies, but what you can advocate for is public health and safety. This includes demoralizing rape, slut-shaming, and protecting society from illness.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!

Picture this, we're settling into our date, the conversation is flowing, we're ordering drinks, laughing, and then it happens... the job convo.

Disney

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

Epic Activewear Deals Every Leggings-Lover Needs To Know About From Nordstrom's Biggest Sale

Wearing my pleather Alo leggings till someone physically removes them from my body.

I'll be the first to admit I'm not an athletic person, at all. Since junior high school, I've been happily cheering my friends on at their football games and soccer matches from the sidelines as long as I could go home to my yoga mat and spend Sunday mornings at Pilates with my mom's friends.

Weekends are often spent in my casual wear, from the second I throw them on for morning meditation through running errands and evening walks. No, I won't be running a marathon or joining my friend's volleyball league anytime soon.

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

TikTok is owned by Dancebyte, which is a China-owned company. Basically, just like any other app, TikTok collects the user's data. The main question to ask yourself when investing in any app or marketing tools who will be owning my data? So yes, China currently owns all the TikTok user's data worldwide.

5 Reasons To Put The Damn Mask On, And Stop Fussing With It

COVID-19 is real people, do your part to protect yourself and others.

Ilana Stein

With the ever-changing reality of our world due to COVID-19, there has been one constant throughout these past unforeseen months, masks. Ever since coronavirus hit the ground running in the US, the CDC has been recommending social distancing and mask-wearing to stop the rapid spread.

Many people have been great about adhering to these policies, mandates, and suggested uses, but others, not so much.

I've been an athlete my entire life. I love movement and I've been jumping, kicking, swimming, dancing, throwing, you name it since I was in diapers. I'm also pretty competitive and probably went through a few sore loser phases. What can I say? I like to win, and losing can sometimes feel like I've failed. Especially, when your competitor is your best friend or someone that you worked all year long to defeat.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.
