116. "The Other Side of the Door" (2008)

Again with the slamming doors. Tay, Tay – even the great songwriters can get away with exactly one slamming door per career. And just to be on the safe side, she throws in pouring rain, photo albums, a little black dress (which rhymes with "mess" and "confess"), a guy throwing pebbles at her window… In other words, this would be the ultimate Swift song – except there are over a hundred better ones.

Best line: "Me and my stupid pride are sitting here alone / Going through the photographs, staring at the phone."
