Must List

GL's 13 Taylor Swift faves

Why do we love Taylor? Sure, she's gorgeous, sweet and a killer role model. But we mainly love her because she writes songs that we can all relate to!
And so, in honor of the release of her third album, Speak Now (in stores now), and her lucky number, here's a breakdown of our 13 all-time faves:

1. “Forever & Always” (Piano Version) -- Is it just us, or was Taylor's voice just made for slow, beautiful melodies like this one? The piano version brings a hundred times more emotion to this song, supposedly directed at Tay's ex, Joe Jonas.

2. “Fearless” -- The title of her chart-topping album and her sold out world tour? Of course everyone loves this song! It's a perfect mix of romantic and inspiring.

3. “Fifteen” -- She nailed it. It's pretty much the theme song of any 15-year-old’s life.

4. “Tim McGraw” -- How can this one not make the list?! Tim McGraw put Tay on the country music radar, and without this sweet melody about a summer romance she may not be the star she is today!

5. “You Belong With Me” -- You can't think "Taylor Swift" without thinking "You Belong With Me".  The lyrics, the beat, the music video: it all comes together in the perfect T. Swift song.

6. “Love Story” -- The ultimate fairy tale of every girl's dreams. And the music video?!  Taylor and her beau may just give Romeo and Juliet a run for their money!

7. “Teardrops On My Guitar” -- Taylor is famous for taking names--and putting them in her songs! Drew was the first boy we heard her target, making this song unforgettable. And, of course, we've all been here and can relate to the heartbreak of seeing your crush with another girl.

8. “White Horse” -- This one makes the list because it's so real. We all want to believe that we're princesses in a fairy tale, but Taylor's experience reminds us that life isn't always fair.

9. “Speak Now” -- It may just be from the excitement of the release of her new album, but we just can't stop listening to "Speak Now" on repeat! The cheeky lyrics describing the "other woman" are cute and make this song fun to sing along with.

10. “Should've Said No” -- There's only one thing to say after hearing this powerful shout out to Taylor's mystery guy who, as she says "probably shouldn't have cheated": You go, girl!

11. “Back To December” -- Taylor as we've never heard her before! Usually, she's telling boys that they're the ones who owe her a big "Sorry." But in this one, she pours out her heart in a beautifully written apology, allegedly to ex Taylor Lautner.

12. “Change” -- This anthem is so powerful and inspiring, it tells us that we're all capable of changing the world!

13. “Hey Stephen” -- We love this one just because it's just so classically Taylor! It's cute, has a fun beat, is all about a crush, and of course, names names.
