11 Taylor Swift Hit Singles & What Your Favorite Says About You, From "Love Story" To "Bad Blood"
Don't try to deny it: Taylor Swift has some indisputably addictive singles. Whether it's a country tune, a hot pop track, or a mix of both, Swift has proven herself to have some serious acumen when it comes to writing songs we can't stop listening to. Since entering the music scene as a teenager, Swift quickly climbed the music charts with hits like "Love Story" and "Teardrops On My Guitar". Since transitioning from the country music genre to pop, she has continued to tackle themes like breakups, makeups, and the importance of self-confidence — not to mention being able to "Shake It Off" when the going gets tough — with lyrics that serve as the ultimate in ear-candy.
With so many hit singles under her belt, it can be difficult to pick a favorite. Currently, my fave to binge listen to is "Blank Space", but next week I'll invariably let "Love Story" (fairytales #FTW, amiright??) glean the top spot. Whether you choose vintage Swift as your go-to track or prefer the grit of songs like "Bad Blood", your favorite hit Swift single can say a lot about you. Without further adieu, I have compiled a list to expound upon what your favorite single can tell you about your personality. Enjoy!
You are an optimist and a hopeless romantic. You also probably have a penchant for reciting lines from old Disney movies, amiright? Same!
"You Belong With Me"
You have an eclectic group of friends and don't adhere to the stereotypes that men and women can't have platonic relationships. If one of your guy friends turns out to be someone you want to take things to the next level with, though, by all means — go for it!
"Teardrops On My Guitar"
You're always the person people come to for advice and you also enjoy a good bout of nostalgia by listening to Swift's first album. Seriously, though, who wasn't completely obsessed with this song when it first came out?
If this song is you're favorite, you're likely confident, independent, and don't mind speaking your mind. You also happen to be a pro at working through conflict in relationships even on the most ugh-worthy of days.
"Back To December"
This is arguably one of Swift's saddest ballads, making us feel all the feels. If this is your favorite, you are likely very caring, compassionate, and sensitive. You don't let your pride get in the way of things and are OK with admitting your mistakes.
"We Are Never Getting Back Together"
You know how to stand your ground and be assertive when you need to be. And no, [insert ex's name here], you are never, ever, ever getting back together, so stop texting already.
You just turned 22, or at least are "feeling 22". Happy (maybe?) birthday!
"I Knew You Were Trouble"
You are a very passionate person and — when it comes to things like love — you may have a tendency to be impulsive. That's not always a bad thing, though. Sure, you knew he/she was trouble when they walked in, but every experience can be an opportunity for growth and learning.
"Shake It Off"
Haters are always gonna hate, but you don't pay them any mind. You are chock full of confidence and don't sweat the small stuff.
Although Swift plays a decidedly vitriolic version of herself in the music video for this hit single, I'm going to guess that you're not actually "a nightmare wrapped in a daydream." If this is your favorite, you probably are someone very passionate who doesn't mind letting their mischievous side out once in a while — within reason, of course.
If you currently have any "Bad Blood", you've hopefully been able to vent that negativity and can now "Shake It Off". If this is your favorite, then you know how to stand up for yourself and work through things like burnt bridges. You may also just enjoy the catchy hook and a song that's perfect for a smorgasbord of celeb cameos.
