Categorizing Every Taylor Swift Song Ever

Taylor Swift for every kind of feeling.


I’m sure that many of you have encountered the out of body feeling one experiences when Taylor Swift expresses your exact emotion in her lyrics, to the degree where she must be reciting your diary, artfully though. Like how else would she know…? Maybe not though; Maybe you are one of her adamant critics who contest that she’s a basic, blonde bimbo limited to her experiences with boys. If so, I regret to inform you that you’ve been painfully misinformed. Not only is such an assertion inherently sexist, but it inaccurately generalizes her music. Here, I took the liberty to categorize every one of her songs based primarily on their mood and message. At the end of the day, this is just my opinion, but I hope it helps you appreciate the different sub-genres of her music and indulge in a little music therapy.
