10 Taylor Swift Songs I Love to Cry To
Maybe I’m weird, but sometimes I just need to cry. The release of tears seems to get all the pent-up angst and sorrow out of my system as well. Sometimes I’m sad over something specific; sometimes I’m simply in a mood. Either way, there are moments (too many probably) where I just need to cry.
Stop Dragging Taylor Swift and Start Supporting the Artists You Do Like
I was at the mall a few weeks ago when I saw something that made my blood boil—a shirt. This shirt happened to have a picture of Taylor Swift on it. However, her image was distorted by flames and words that read, “RIP Taylor Swift,” and there was a faded picture of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian in the corner. My brother got a rant from me on the car ride home about that shirt.

Track by Track: Taylor Swift’s 'Speak Now' (Part 1)
Speak Now was Taylor Swift’s third full-length studio album. It is her only album to date to be written entirely on her own. Full of iconic country hits, Speak Now is accepted by Taylor’s fandom as one of her best albums. In this article and the two following, I will go song by song through this album and discuss each track. Speak Now is my personal favorite Taylor record, and I hope to do it justice in this review. In this first part of my three-part review, I’ll cover the first six songs on Speak Now, as well as list a favorite lyric from each song.
Taylor Swift Will Never Go Out of Style
What is it about an artist that makes us so drawn to them? Why do we feel such a connection with certain music? Think about some of your favorite songs of all time. Got them? Are any of them songs you’ve known since childhood or that you first heard sometime in your younger years? Likely they are. When a song or an artist is that important to us, that song or artist will stick with us for years to come.
'Red' by Taylor Swift: An Album I’ve Grown to Truly Understand with Age
I love every album Taylor Swift has released. In my eyes she has no “worst” album. However, if I’m being completely honest, when Taylor’s fourth album, Red, was released, I struggled to connect with it. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely loved it. I was at Target on release day, money in hand and ready to be spent. I listened to the album over and over again when I got home. But something was different about this album than Taylor’s previous three. It wasn’t worse, it wasn’t a letdown, it wasn’t disappointing…it was just different. I couldn’t find a personal connection with most of the songs the way I had with the songs on Taylor Swift, Fearless, and Speak Now. But why?
Eight Taylor Swift Songs I'd Play for My Younger Self
I was nine when Taylor Swift’s debut album was released. I consider myself someone who has always been a Swiftie, although at that age (in the mid-2000s especially), kids don’t really know about fandoms and online communities. I just knew there was a sweet girl with gorgeous, almond-shaped eyes lying on the ground singing a song called “Tim McGraw” at the top of the country music video countdowns every single week. I was as hooked as a nine-year-old could be.
