List RulesVote up your favorite Taylor Swift songs, not just singles and hits.

What's your favorite T-Swift song to belt out in the car? Which one makes you just shake shake shake? This is a list of the best Taylor Swift songs, ranked by the Ranker community. All of Taylor Swift's singles are included here, but real fans know there are other awesome songs to vote on other than the radio hits. She is known for her romantic lyrics (which are often about famous ex-boyfriends) and her country sound. Which singles were career-makers and which were career-breakers? Music videos and audio videos are included next to each track name, so if you haven't heard a song you can listen to it right here on this list. Is one of your favorite Taylor Swift songs missing from this poll? Add it to the list so it has a chance to rise to the top.

This list is made up of many different songs, including "Teardrops on My Guitar" and "I'm Only Me When I'm With You." If the order of this list bothers you, then start a revolution and fight the system by creating your own version and re-ranking it. Simply click the "Rerank List" button and you can put the songs in whatever order you like.
