Taylor Swift Reveals The Songs That ‘Healed’ Her After ‘Bad Breakups’

Taylor Swift discusses the importance of music.

In ELLE UK‘s Music Issue out March 7, the 29-year-old cover star wrote an essay called “Power of Pop,” where she opens up about which songs have helped her through “bad breakups or let downs.”

She wrote:

“I’m convinced that You Learn by Alanis Morissette, Put Your Records On by Corinne Bailey Rae and Why by Annie Lennox have actually healed my heart after bad breakups or let downs.”

The Shake It Off singer continued:

“When I hear How to Save a Life by The Fray, Breathe (2AM) by Anna Nalick or The Story by Brandi Carlile, I immediately flashback to being 17 and on tour for months on end… When I’d get a day at home in between long stretches on the road sharing a van with my band and crew, I would spend my rare nights off painting alone with candles lit in my room—just being alone with those songs (Those are all from the Grey’s Anatomy soundtrack. My commitment to that show truly knows no bounds).”

Additionally, the superstar gave her take on what fans want from their favorite artists.

“I think these days, people are reaching out for connection and comfort in the music they listen to. We like being confided in and hearing someone say, ‘this is what I went through’ as proof to us that we can get through our own struggles… We actually do NOT want our pop music to be generic. I think a lot of music lovers want some biographical glimpse into the world of our narrator, a hole in the emotional walls people put up around themselves to survive.’”

The musician continued:

“This glimpse into the artist’s story invites us to connect it to our own, and in the best case scenario, allows us the ability to assign that song to our memories. It’s this alliance between a song and our memories of the times it helped us heal, or made us cry, dance, or escape that truly stands the test of time. Just like a great book.”

Swift is also a fan of Panic! At the Disco‘s I Write Sins Not Tragedies, and the Dixie ChicksCowboy Take Me Away.

As we reported, Joe Alwyn‘s girlfriend responded to fan theories that she will soon be dropping her seventh studio album.
