Mare's Music Monday

It's officially five days until I see Taylor Swift in concert for the second time at BC Place in Vancouver!  Yes I am counting down ;)  Today for Mare's Music Monday, I want to share my favourite songs from each of Taylor's albums.  I've been a fan since about 2007, when I was convinced I was much too old to like this superstar.  Got over that quickly, and have been an avid supporter ever since. So, let's dive into her five part discography:
Taylor SwiftHer debut self-titled album
Should’ve Said No and Tim McGraw are my two faves on this album.  In particular, I believe a career-changing performance was when Taylor sang Should've Said No in 2008 at the ACMs. Watch her stun the audience:

 Fearless: Taylor's second album that has so many gems
In particular I like a couple ballads on this one, White Horse and Forever and Always the piano version.  I think Taylor's live performances have won her so many fans.  This was another turning point for her:


Speak Now: This is a legendary record because Taylor wrote every song herself, without any help. 
Dear John and Ours are two of my favourites off this album, and too faves out of entire library.


 Red: This album came out October 2012 and has never left my van.  If it was possible to wear out a cd, this one would have melted!  It's nearly impossible to narrow down my favourites, but a few stand-outs are
 All Too Well, State of Grace, Red and Begin Again. 
When she performed All Too Well at the 2014 Grammys...well, I still get goosebumps watching this performance:

 

1989: Her fifth album was a complete shift from country to pop.  Even though many skeptics said it would never work, it's her best-seller to date!
Shake It Off, Style, Bad Blood, and This Love are just a few of my faves, but again tough to pick and choose. 
Still, I will never get enough of this video. Total genius. I will always remember where I was and what I was doing the minute this song was released.  You may think I'm dramatic, but it was life-changing.

What are your favourite Taylor Swift songs? Are you seeing the 1989 Tour?

  1. Great post, "Ours" is my favorite but I think "Shake it off" was a genius answer from her to her critics.Her lyrics cross generations, a great talent.
