Taylor Swift has released every one of her albums in October and November, so naturally, her music is on repeat for two months straight. They are the perfect fall albums and allow you to get through those stressful midterms.
Let’s take a walk out of the woods and down memory lane and recount her best songs from all six albums.
Her debut, self-titled album was released 12 years ago on October 24, 2006. It brought us hits like “Our Song”, “Teardrops on My Guitar”, “Cold as You”, “Tim McGraw”, and many more.
At only 16 years old, Swift was breaking into the country music world and delivering iconic and heartfelt lyrics at such a young age.
She has evolved so much over the past 12 years, but her lyrics from her first album will always stay the same.
Swift released her second album on November 11, 2008. Now a country music superstar, Swift topped the charts with singles “Love Story”, “You Belong With Me”, and “Fearless”, which were many middle-schoolers’ jams at that time and are still widely loved today.
Many fans have proposed to their significant others to “Love Story” during the line “Marry me, Juliet, you’ll never have to be alone”- some on their own and others at Swift’s current Reputation Tour.
This album even won Swift her first Grammy, including Artist of the Year.
Swift’s third album, released on October 25, 2010, was the first album written entirely by her.
Speak Now debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart and sparked iconic songs such as “Mean”, “Back to December”, “Mine”, and many more songs that have been said to be some of the best in Swift’s discography.
8 years later, those songs still make us think of our first loves and heartbreak.
October 22, 2012, was the day this legendary album was released. The last album to feature Swift’s country sound, RED sparked 7 singles, including “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”, “I Knew You Were Trouble”, “22”, and the title track.
This album gives off the biggest ‘fall’ vibes. Fans are still disappointed it didn’t win Album of the Year.
The first ever full pop album for Swift was released on October 27, 2014. The 4 year anniversary of this masterpiece is quickly approaching. Swift cut her hair, changed her life, and changed genres.
The album was named after the year she was born and the songs depicted 80s pop songs. “Shake It Off”, “Blank Space”, “Bad Blood”, “Out of the Woods”, and more went straight to the radio and soon were household hits.
After 1989, Swift took a break from music, stopped her two-year cycle, and found true love.
The drought was the very worst for Swifties, but they knew she would come back harder and smarter than ever.
November 10, 2017, was the day Swift rose up from the dead and released her most vulnerable and hard-hitting album to date.
Her comeback single, “Look What You Made Me Do”, featured her reputation as dead and her not caring about what anyone said. “Delicate”, “End Game (featuring Ed Sheeran and Future)”. and many others were hits from the album.
Now back in the spotlight, Swift is trying to keep her 2-year relationship with British actor, Joe Alwyn, private.
She is currently on tour to support the album.
So while you’re stressing over midterms or enjoying the fall weather, now is the best time to get nostalgic and listen to all six of Swift’s albums. You won’t regret it.
Stream her albums while you fall in love, out of love, lose friendships, and live your best life.
