Swifties already know: when it comes to the fifth track on any Taylor Swift album, you're in for an emotional overload.

If you didn't know, on basically every Taylor Swift album, track five has a very specific meaning. It's usually a particularly personal song, with some sort of vulnerable revelation involving Taylor's past, reflecting either a relationship or a particular emotion.

Fans began to notice the trend by 2012?s Red, with "All Too Well" taking the fifth track slot.

"I didn't realize I was doing this, but as I was making albums, I guess I was just kind of putting a very vulnerable, personal, honest, emotional song as track five. So because you noticed this, I kind of started to put the songs that were really honest, emotional, vulnerable, and personal as track five," she would later explain.
