Taylor Swift has done it again. She is currently dominating the world of music with her Red (Taylor's Version) studio album.
In case you're out of the loop, Swift released Red in 2012 under Big Machine Records. In 2018, her contract under Big Machine ran out and opened up the opportunity for her to rerecord her songs in order for her to own the masters to her own songs. Thankfully, Republic Records believes in Swift's dreams and she will re-release her albums one by one under their direction.
If you haven't had time to sit down and listen to the 30 song tracklist, here's our list of the top 10 songs from Red (Taylor's Version).
10. "I Bet You Think About Me" ft. Chris Stapleton
Swift and Stapleton are the collaboration we never knew we needed! Fun fact: the music video was directed by American actress Blake Lively.
9. "State Of Grace (Acoustic Version)"
This is one of the most beautiful songs on the record. While the fully produced song is higher on the record, there's something about the intimacy and the rawness of the song being acoustic that makes it even more amazing.
8. "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together"
This will always be one of Swift's most fun songs. Who doesn't love screaming about a breakup at the top of their lungs? Back when the song was originally released in 2012, the song set a Guinness world record for being the "fastest-selling single in digital history."
7. "The Last Time" ft. Gary Lightbody of Snow Patrol
This remake is unbelievable. After listening to the 2012 release of Red, I didn't think this song could ever get any better. However, the 2021 version proved me wrong! Swift and Lightbody remade the song perfectly.
We can't leave out the title track. "Red" is just as amazing as ever. The revamped version really shows off how Taylor's voice has matured over the past nine years.
Swift has been playing this song live for years, and fans are excited to finally have a recorded version of one of the saddest songs ever written. If you don't believe me, listen for yourself.
4. "Better Man (From The Vault)"
Little Big Town had a hit with this Swift song back in 2016. Thankfully, Swift decided to release it on Red (Taylor's Version) so we can hear how the country song originally came together.
3. "Everything Has Changed" ft. Ed Sheeran
Swift and Sheeran have done it again. They've recorded the perfect song! Back in 2012, the song peaked at No. 32 on the Billboard chart and won Swift and Sheeran BMI and Radio Disney awards.
2. "Nothing New" ft. Phoebe Bridgers
This song took Swift and Bridgers fans by storm. So far, it's reached No. 43 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and to No. 11 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs.
1. "All Too Well" and "All Too Well (10 Minute Version)"
That's right, we've got to include both versions of the song. The 10-minute version of the song is the longest song to ever land as a No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, overtaking Don McLean's 1972 hit "American Pie."
Here's the entire tracklist and the songwriters of each song in case you think we missed anything!
