- “Don’t Blame Me” (Reputation)
The Scrapbook Reputation represents a major transformation in Taylor’s career! The sweet singer of You belong With Me, To like story and Delighted tried something different and the result was a big hit!

On the other hand, don’t blame mealso a big Reputation production, was not as well recognized and is rarely mentioned in Swift’s list of hits. Curious about this one? So don’t waste time and go listen to track 4 of Reputation!
- Daylight (Lover)
“Daylight” is probably one of the most romantic songs of all time. The song’s big metaphor is that Taylor, the songwriter, once believed that love burned red or black and white. But now she has realized that he is golden like the light of day. She said her whole life before meeting her current love was like a dark night and now it’s a beautiful daylight.
The lyrics also refer to Red, another Swift song written years ago that has the phrase “loving her was red.” So if you want to hear a romantic, calm and emotional song, you can’t miss the opportunity to get to know Day light.
- Nothing New (red – Taylor’s version)
Another sad but perfect song on this list! Nothing new is heavy and dramatic, but also very necessary. Despite the melody being relaxing and not upbeat, the lyrics sound like the writer really wanted to get everything out of his chest.
Track 23 of Red (Taylor’s Version) is mostly about the challenges of being young and female in a patriarchal and judgmental society. Also, the fact that it features Phoebe Bridgers makes it all the more exciting, since the duo is artistic, harmonious and the two voices match perfectly!
- Illicit Affairs (Folklore)
The surprise album released in times of pandemic, Folklore, has great hidden treasures. For the first time, Taylor tried something different and created songs with fictional stories not based on real experiences. Illegal business is one of those cases. Track 10 of the album is about a girl who is having an affair with someone committed, but she is not happy about this situation. The line “You taught me a secret language that I can’t speak with anyone else” reflects all the passion but also the sadness she goes through! If you haven’t listened to “Illicit Affairs” yet, you can’t waste any more time! You will not regret it!
- Tolerate it (forever)
Do you know that feeling of loving someone more than they love you? Or that you prioritize someone who doesn’t care about you the same way you do? tolerate it is about it. The chorus goes “I know my love should be celebrated, but you tolerate it”.
The song is very deep, sad and you shouldn’t be surprised if you cry a little. Additionally, this masterpiece contains one of the best lines Taylor ever wrote: “I made you my temple, my mural, my sky, and now I beg footnotes in the ‘story of your life’. Very poetic, isn’t it?
