Taylor Swift Songs For Every Phase of Your Relationship!

No matter where you are in your love life journey, or if that’s not your thing, Taylor Swift has a song (or two) in her large discography that feels like it was written just for you.

With a discography of more than a hundred songs, Taylor Swift seems to have a song for every occasion from the political anthem “Only The Young,” to her feminist banger, “The Man.” When it comes to relationships, no one seems to understand them more than Taylor, and she has a song for you regardless of where you are on your journey to finding love.

Being Single

One of Taylor’s biggest hits, “Shake It Off” embodies a carefree attitude and doing your own thing even with the huge weight and expectations society puts on romantic relationships. Not only is it a great song to dance to in your room by yourself singing into a hairbrush “You Belong With Me,” style, but it’s a great song to blast in the car with your friends heading out on a great adventure.

Honourable mentions: “22,” “Clean”

First Meeting

“Enchanted” is the perfect song for a first meeting— especially if you forget to catch your crush’s number when you first meet them— But until we get Taylor’s Version of that song, we’re streaming “Message In A Bottle (Taylor’s Version) [From The Vault].” With a bouncy beat and cute lyrics, it’s a shocker that this adorable song was cut from the original album.

Honourable mentions: “Enchanted,” “Fearless (Taylor’s Version)”

Having a crush

“You Belong With Me (Taylor’s Version)” is a classic having a crush song and it stands the test of time despite being released more than ten years ago. There’s no song that goes better with the butterflies in your stomach and the blush on your face than this one.

Honourable mentions: “Sparks Fly,” “Wildest Dreams (Taylor’s Version),” “I Think He Knows”

Falling in Love

Taylor’s classic banger “Love Story (Taylor’s Version)” will always be the cutest song about falling in love and taking a chance on your significant other, even when other people aren’t supportive of your relationship.

Honourable mentions: “End Game (feat. Ed Sheeran & Future),” “Paper Rings, Don’t Blame Me”


1989’s hit “Style” is a perfect song of fighting and forgiveness, of recognising your partners mistakes and choosing to love them anywhere because focusing on the future (and how good you look together) is more important than hurting each other over mistakes in the past.

Honourable mentions: “Afterglow,” “Stay Stay Stay (Taylor’s Version)”

Being in a comfortable relationship

One of the best songs on Lover is “Daylight” because of the parallels it has with “Red (Taylor’s Version)” which show her growth in relationships and as a person. Going from “Loving him was red,” in her younger years to the wiser “I once believed love would be burning red, But it’s golden, Like daylight” is such an intimate realisation that she shares with her fans.

Honourable mentions: “Ours,” “Lavender Haze,” “You Are In Love”

Breaking up

Screaming “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together (Taylor’s Version)” after a breakup is the most cathartic feeling in the world. No one understands what it’s like to get your heart broken like Taylor and this whole list could just be a song for every kind of breakup you can imagine, but “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together (Taylor’s Version)” is the peppy breakup song to end all breakup songs.

Honourable mentions: “Death By A Thousand Cuts,” “Picture To Burn,” “The Story of Us (Taylor’s Version)”

Finally Getting Over A Relationship

Taylor’s popular track off her new Midnights album “Bejeweled” is the perfect anthem for recognising your self-worth after a relationship even if things still feel bleak. No relationship can diminish who you are as a person and this song perfectly exemplifies that.

Honourable mentions: “I Forgot That You Existed,” “invisible string”

Can’t wait to get Taylor’s Version of the rest of her albums so we can start streaming our favorite songs from her self-titled album, Speak Now, 1989, and reputation.
