What's the Best Song on Red? Three Passionate Taylor Swift Fans Debate

TIME

After months of waiting, it is finally time to grab your favorite scarf, a tissue box and perhaps a maple latte or two because Taylor’s Version of her 2012 album Red is upon us.

Taylor Swift’s Red, her fourth studio album, catapulted the artist into pop stardom. The 16 tracks, plus six bonus songs on the deluxe version of the album, telegraphed to listeners everywhere that Swift is much more than a country artist. It contains what many consider to be the best song in her entire catalog (more on that later) and sees her transition from writing songs about sweeping romantic gestures and unrequited crushes to capturing the quieter, more painful moments of falling in and out of love. When Red debuted she was 22 years old and, through the album, applied a slightly more grown-up lens on love, using the songs to look at relationships with some distance. “It was all over the place, a fractured mosaic of feelings that somehow all fit together in the end,” Swift wrote in June 2021 of the album. “Happy, free, confused, lonely, devastated, euphoric, wild, and tortured by memories past.”

As part of her ongoing public effort to own all her masters, Swift is re-releasing the album along with her charity single “Ronan” and 9 bonus tracks featuring Chris Stapleton, Phoebe Bridgers, Mark Foster and Ed Sheeran. It follows her re-release of her 2008 album Fearless in April. Since the announcement of Red’s impending arrival, fans have been furiously dissecting every post Swift has made on social media in an attempt to gather clues about the bonus tracks and whether the musician would release any songs early (her use of a pizza emoji led many to believe a collab with the Jonas Brothers was in the works). Though there were no surprise early releases, a much-anticipated reward awaits: a 10-minute version of the piercing breakup anthem “All Too Well” and an accompanying short film starring Swift, Stranger Things’ Sadie Sink and Teen Wolf’s Dylan O’Brien.

In preparation for the album’s re-release, TIME’s biggest Swifities sat down to rank the original 16 songs on Red by each compiling their own individual rankings. Those rankings were then averaged to create overall rankings—as well as spark some healthy debate among our most devoted fans.

16. “The Last Time”

15. “Everything Has Changed”

14. “Stay Stay Stay”

13. “Starlight”

12. “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”

11. ”Begin Again”

10. “The Lucky One”

9. “I Almost Do”

8. “Sad Beautiful Tragic”

7. “I Knew You Were Trouble”

6. “22”

5. “Red”

4. “State of Grace”

3. “Holy Ground”

2. “Treacherous”

1. “All Too Well”

Samantha Cooney: “All Too Well” is the best song on Red. It’s also the best song in Taylor Swift’s entire discography, and one of the best breakup songs ever written (it’s in my personal canon with “The Last Time I Saw Richard” and “If You See Her, Say Hello.”)

 

Andrew R. Chow: +1000 for your “The Last Time I Saw Richard” shoutout, Sam.

 

I’m very excited to watch the song’s 10-minute film, because it’s always had a cinematic quality. I love her turn at the end from wistful to vicious; it’s practically a superhero (or supervillain) origin story.

 

Annabel Gutterman: I know, I know. It’s boring to have this at number one. It’s very expected. But how could “All Too Well” be anywhere else? I’m pretty positive we could have done a roundtable ranking every single line of this song. (For what it’s worth, my number one is “Cause there we are again in the middle of the night/ We’re dancing ‘round the kitchen in the refrigerator light”). This song is the centerpiece of Taylor Swift’s discography—it announced to the world that she transcends genre and is here to stay.

泰勒·斯威夫特(Taylor Swift)的《Red》是她的第四张录音室专辑,将这位歌手推上了流行天后的宝座。这张专辑的16首歌曲,加上豪华版的6首额外歌曲,向各地听众传递了斯威夫特不仅仅是一位乡村音乐歌手的信息。这张专辑包含了许多人认为是她所有曲目中最好的歌曲(后面会有更多介绍),并看到她从写关于泛泛浪漫之举和不求回报的暗恋歌曲过渡到捕捉更静谧、更痛苦的恋爱与失恋的时刻。当《Red》首次推出时,她22岁,通过这张专辑,她对爱情采用了一个稍微成熟的镜头,用歌曲来看待有一定距离的关系。“到处都是,是支离破碎的情绪交织在一起,但最后都以某种方式拼在一起。”斯威夫特在2021年6月的专辑中写道,“快乐的、自由的、困惑的、孤独的、崩溃的、欣喜的、狂野的、以及被过去的记忆折磨的。”
