Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and that means it’s time to get your romantic playlist in order. Of course, Taylor Swift is one of the most famous female singers of the current generation and her rise to prominence since she started in 2006 has largely been due to her romantic hits.

So whether you’re planning a big date for Valentine’s Day, you’re staying at home with your loved one to play online casino games, or you’re just looking for some great romantic hits for the future, here are our top Taylor Swift love songs.

Classic romantic: Love Story

Love Story is probably Taylor’s most renowned romantic track and is undoubtedly one of the best Taylor Swift Songs. Released in 2008, it is based on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, but luckily in this one, the two star-crossed lovers actually end up in an engagement rather than the gruesome ending in the original play. She also re-recorded a new version of the track in 2021 if you’re wanting to try something new.

This is the perfect T-Swift song for any classic romantic evening in.

Favorite lyrics: He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring

And said, “Marry me, Juliet

You’ll never have to be alone

I love you and that’s all I really know

I talked to your dad; go pick out a white dress

It’s a love story, baby; just say, “Yes.”

Fairytale romantic: Enchanted

If you like to play casino table games or enjoy online slots with a fairytale/fantasy theme, then you might be after a different kind of song to Love Story, and Enchanted should be right up your alley. 

Enchanted is from Swift’s Speak Now album that was released in 2010 and it throws it back to her older, romantic tracks that we know and love. She says that the song is about someone she met and was “enchanted by” but never dated. Rumor has it that it was Adam Young from Owl City.

Favorite lyrics: There I was again tonight

Forcing laughter, faking smiles

Same old tired, lonely place

Walls of insincerity, shifting eyes and vacancy 

Vanished when I saw your face

All I can say is, it was enchanting to meet you.

Upbeat romantic: Paper Rings

If you’re less of a slow romantic and think that love is exciting and deserves something a little bit more upbeat to keep pace with your racing pulse, then Paper Rings is the song that you’re looking for. The message behind Paper Rings is a sweet one. As you know, paper has very little value, but Swift says that even if her loved one presented her with a ring made of paper, she’d still marry him. 

It’s a sweet song that is a perfect option for a bit of dancing around.

Favorite lyrics: I want to drive away with you

I want your complications too

I want your dreary Mondays

Wrap your arms around me, baby boy.

New romance: Delicate

The beginning of any new relationship is an exciting time, but it is also a delicate one, as you get to know one another. This is perfectly summed up in the song Delicate. The upbeat nature of the song mimics the excitement of a new romance, but the sweet, romantic and sometimes timid lyrics also point to the nervousness that comes with new love.

Favorite lyrics: We can’t make any promises

Now can we, babe?

But you can make me a drink

Is it cool that I said all that?

Is it chill that you’re in my head?

‘Cause I know that it’s delicate

Hopeless romantic: The Lakes

Of course, there is always a tragically hopeless romantic out there and if you are one of them, then Taylor has a song just for you. The Lakes is a bonus track off the Folklore album and while it is a romantic song, there is a little tinge of darkness to it too. The song is about the Lake District in the UK, where her boyfriend Joe Alwyn and Taylor would go to escape the modern world and media frenzy that inevitably followed them everywhere. It speaks of a time when Taylor felt happy and carefree for the first time in a long time. The two have been together since 2016.

Favorite lyrics: I want auroras and sad prose.

I want to watch wisteria grow right over my bare feet.

’Cause I haven’t moved in years

And I want you right here.

A red rose grew up out of ice frozen ground

With no one around to tweet it

While I bathe in cliffside pools.

Love of your life: Lover

If there is a single Taylor Swift song that you should pop on a playlist to dedicate to your significant other, then it’s probably Lover. It’s another classic love song and is also the name of the album – Lover – which was released in 2018. It is a wholesome, happy song about being in love and how happy your loved one makes you.

Favorite lyrics: Ladies and gentlemen, will you please stand?

With every guitar string scar on my hand

I take this magnetic force of a man to be my lover

My heart’s been borrowed and yours has been blue

All’s well that ends well to end up with you.
