Taylor Swift Lists the Songs She Listens to When She’s Going Through a Rough Break-Up

Everyone knows TAYLOR SWIFT writes songs about her exes to get over a break-up.  But she also listens to other people’s music to get past it.

In an essay for the British edition of “Elle” magazine, Taylor said, quote, “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.”


Alanis Morissette – You Learn

Corinne Bailey Rae – Put Your Records On

Annie Lennox – Why

Other songs have also helped her get through various stages of her life.

She said, quote, “When I hear How to Save a Life by The Fray, Breathe (2AM) by Anna Nalick or The Story by Brandi Carlile, I immediately flash back 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’d spend my rare nights off painting alone with candles lit in my room . . . just being alone with those songs.”
