There will always be those late-night feelings when all you need to do is ball up and release those tears while listening to your comfort songs. I call those the 3 AM blues. And in my case, I could never go wrong with some Taylor Swift background music as I bawl my eyes out. 

Wanna exchange playlists? These are the Taylor Swift song staples that will surely get you through that late-night breakdown.

Mean – Taylor Swift, Speak Now (2010)

6th grade Franchesca felt this song. As someone whose main critic has always been me, I can recommend this song for when you need to alleviate pressure off of your shoulders.

Ours – Taylor Swift, Speak Now (2010)

Though people usually associate this with romantic love, I, on the other hand, like to think of it as a love letter from my oldest friend. Ours has always felt like a conversation with my best friend after months of not talking because, as you know it, life always happens.

The 1 – Taylor Swift, Folklore (2020)

This song is a eulogy not just to all the love that we lost, but also, to everything that could have been ours if life only allowed it.

Soon You’ll Get Better – Taylor Swift, Lover (2019)

This piece was written when Taylor’s mother was battling cancer. Tay hits home with Soon You’ll Get Better as she perfectly captured what we would all feel if we were in her shoes.

Invisible String – Taylor Swift, Folklore (2020)

This song resides in my heart rent-free. Invisible String is a beacon of hope. It makes us believe that wherever this life leads us, it will bring us exactly where we should be, at the right place and at the right time.
