Taylor Swift is only 22, but she's already completed four studio albums and toured the world many times over. She's also won over many skeptics who dismissed her as a prefabricated country ingenue when she first hit the scene back in 2006. Since then she's moved so gradually from country to pop that many fans barely realized what was happening. 

Her new album, Red, hits shelves next week, so we have a question for you: What is your favorite Taylor Swift song? Are you into the old-school country songs like "Teardrops on My Guitar," a sucker for "Love Story," or the hipster who only blasts "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" when you think nobody is listening? Vote for whatever song you want, but please only vote a single time and just for one song.

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
