My best friend Taylor is releasing another song off of her highly anticipated album tonight entitled "Gorgeous." It's going to be available everywhere because everyone is going to want to listen to it. 

A post shared by Taylor Swift (@taylorswift) on

Why do we love a Taylor Swift song so very much?

For starters, it almost always speaks to some extremely specific romantic situation that we have previously found ourselves in. Cases in point: "I can't say hello to you and risk another goodbye," "Just because you're clean don't mean you don't miss it," and most brilliantly, "I've been picking up the pieces of the mess that you made." (ED NOTE: That one goes out directly to an ex-boyfriend.) 

And HOW FUN! They're almost always about real life romances she's had, sometimes very much in the public eye. So in celebration of her new album, we're creating the definitive list (in no particular order) of every guy Swift has ever written about. You're welcome. (And yes, we'll be updating this list ASAP, assuming gorgeous is about...[insert fan theory here].)
