Taylor Swift has a way of capturing our deepest and darkest insecurities in her songs. It's like she knows what we are thinking every minute of every day. She digs into her personal life to deliver wholly honest and raw material, something that not many superstars do these days. She's set herself apart as someone to look up to, to reveal all our secrets to without judgement. She's our best friend, even if she doesn't know it. From her stirring debut single "Tim McGraw" to her most recent radio hit "Red," she is the mouthpiece for this generation.
Since hitting the music scene with her self-titled debut in 2006, she has blazed a trail to megastardom--calling out the men for doing her wrong with unabashed confidence and poise. Sure, she might get a little to much flack for her personal dating life, but that's part of her charm. She's just like us, at her core--an individual trying to find her place in this world. Along the way, she has given us some remarkably poignant tunes, most of which are not even the singles she's released. Whether you consider her pop or country or a hybrid of both doesn't matter, her music speaks for itself.
With the recent news that Swift's forthcoming album could be her best yet, I admit that I squealed inside--er, in my bedroom, that is. Could Fearless, Speak Now and Red really have only been setting the stage for for what comes next? The possibilities are limitless, I say. With that, I thought it was time to do a Top 10 all-time favorite Swift's list: one of those things to pass the time, so to speak. As we look forward, we must always look back.
