The only thing better than falling in love is listening to love songs while you swoon. And there’s no one better to listen to in these moments than Taylor Swift, an artist who's made a career out of diaristic depictions of every aspect of romance (and more). From her self-titled debut album through Midnights and her new album re-recordings, Swift has shared all the ups and downs of her tumultuous love life through lyrics in a way that's raw and enigmatic, which is kind of like love itself when you think about it. Naturally, there are plenty of Taylor Swift love songs to listen to on repeat when you’re falling hard.
There really is something special about listening to a love song when you're in a budding romance — it just hits differently. But it’s the Swiftian storytelling and imagery that will really get you in your “feelings more than Drake,” to quote Swift herself. Swift’s music encapsulates every facet of love: It can be shades of red, golden like daylight, a treacherous slope, glowing in the dark, difficult but real, and much more. So, if you want to stir up the butterflies in your stomach while you fall for someone new, fire up your Spotify and swoon to these T. Swift songs, because they're the perfect soundtrack for falling in love.
Love can be complicated, messy, and fragile, but also exciting and lovely, as Swift exemplifies in her songwriting. The songstress’ ability to break down both every small feeling and grandiose emotion in love through her music is what makes her an unparalleled artist and why her songs continue to resonate, especially when you’re falling in love again — or for the very first time.
