With her seventh full-length studio album on the way, below we are ranking every single Taylor has released (a difficult task as it is like ranking your friends). Songs I wish could be included in this list: "All Too Well," "You Are In Love," "I Know Places," and "Long Live." These are my personal favorites.

About

Nicole Mastrogiannis

Music, entertainment, and fashion are what I'm most passionate about (other than my big greek family). To share my passion for these subjects through journalism is something that I deeply cherish, and is what motivates me to inspire others to open their eyes to new things.

From writing for a few music blogs to sharing my entertainment content across iHeartMedia's network of 800+ radio station websites (+iHeartRadio), I have covered every type of music format you can imagine in edition to celeb news, and more.

I have been fortunate enough to share my experience of many of iHeartRadio's tentpole events including the iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas, iHeartRadio Music Awards, iHeartRadio Country Festival, and the Jingle Ball Tour.

I have also had the opportunity to sit down with many very noteworthy pop stars to the up-and-comers in the industry for interviews and other fun features.

Additionally, over the past few years, I have covered most of the major dance music festivals including Tomorrowland, TomorrowWorld, Ultra Music Festival, Electric Zoo, and more. And living in New York City has opened the doors to some of the most unique events surrounding the genre.

Other special interests of mine include celebrity news, TV shows, movies, and fashion. I'm always on social media looking at what all the trends are, and love everything from celeb street style to what they are wearing on the red carpet.
