"All Too Well" is a song by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift, taken from her fourth studio album, Red (2012), which was released on October 22, 2012, by Big Machine Records. Swift wrote "All Too Well" as the first song for Red, while embarking on her Speak Now World Tour. She collaborated with longtime co-writer Liz Rose, who helped trim the song to five minutes from its original 10-minute length. Produced by Swift and Nathan Chapman, "All Too Well" is a power ballad combining country rock, soft rock, folk and arena rock styles. The lyrics narrate a romantic relationship and its subsequent dissolution using vivid imagery.

After Red was released, "All Too Well" peaked at number 80 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and 59 on the Canadian Hot 100, and was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Swift first performed "All Too Well" at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards on January 26, 2014, and included the song on the set lists of her shows for the Red Tour (2013–14) and the Reputation Stadium Tour (2018) among many other concerts.

Music critics hailed "All Too Well" as the best song in Swift's discography, highlighting her cathartic songwriting that offers emotional engagement with specific, expository details. They also praised the track's slow-burning production that accompanies the emotional climax. "All Too Well" featured on many publications' lists of the best songs of the 2010s decade, and ranked 69th on Rolling Stone's 2021 revision of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. It has earned a cult following, with "the scarf" image in its lyrics becoming a popular culture phenomenon.

Swift re-recorded two versions of "All Too Well"—that of the original 5-minute track and the unabridged, 10-minute-long version—for her second re-recorded album, Red (Taylor's Version), released on November 12, 2021. "All Too Well (10 Minute Version)" was accompanied by All Too Well: The Short Film, written and directed by Swift, which premiered on November 12, starring Sadie Sink, Dylan O'Brien and Swift herself. The 10-minute song was released as a promotional single on November 15. Surpassing the 2012 track, "All Too Well (Taylor's Version)" was met with international commercial success, topping the charts in various countries. It broke the Guinness World Record for the longest song ever to reach number one on the Billboard Hot 100. Critical reviews lauded the songcraft of the 10-minute song, and dubbed it a career highlight for Swift.

Background and release[edit]

Swift began writing the song during rehearsals for the Speak Now World Tour, accompanied by her band

"All Too Well" was the first song Swift wrote for her album Red, having penned the lyrics almost two years before the album's release.[1] While collaborating with different writers on Red, Swift wrote the song along with Liz Rose, with whom she had written many songs on her earlier albums. Rose has said that Swift unexpectedly asked her to help write the song as a one-off project after not having collaborated with Swift for some years.[2] Swift wrote a first draft of the song by herself unexpectedly while on her Speak Now World Tour in February 2011, with the final draft being completed in March of that same year.[3][4]

The lyric I’m most proud of is from "All Too Well": "And you call me up again just to break me like a promise / So casually cruel in the name of being honest." That was something I came up with while ranting during a soundcheck. I was just playing these chords over and over onstage and my band joined in and I went on a rant. Those were some of the lines I thought of. [...] I was going through a really hard time then, and my band joined in playing, and one of the first things that I came up with, just, like, spat out, was "And you call me up again just to break me like a promise, so casually cruel in the name of being honest.

— Swift on the beginnings of writing "All Too Well", Popdust[5]

In an interview with Good Morning America, Swift said that the song was "the hardest to write on the album", saying: "it took me a really long time to filter through everything I wanted to put in the song without it being a 10-minute song, which you can’t put on an album. I wanted a story that could work in the form of a song and I called my co-writer Liz Rose and said, ‘Come over, we’ve gotta filter this down,’ and it took me a really long time to get it."[6] Rose also said that the song was originally "10, 12 or 15 minutes long" before cutting down to "the important pieces".[2] In a later interview, Rose described "All Too Well" as originally being "probably a 20-minute song when [Swift] called me."[7] Even after cutting it down, the song is the longest track on the album, clocking in at five minutes and twenty-eight seconds (5:28). In a 2020 interview on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums podcast, Swift later confirmed that the original version was about 10 minutes long and also revealed that it was explicit.[8] The song's studio recording was produced by Nathan Chapman and Swift.[9]

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Liz Rose explained how "All Too Well" came to be, stating "When we did ‘All Too Well,’ I hadn’t heard from her in awhile. She hadn’t really been writing." After receiving a call from Swift asking her to collaborate on the song, Rose explained that "[Swift] had a ''lot'' of information. I just let her go. She already had a melody and she started singing some words, and I started writing things down, saying, ‘Ok, let’s use this, let’s use that." Rose later stated "It was the most emotional, in-depth song we’ve ever written."[10]

The song's secret message in Red's liner notes is "MAPLE LATTES".[11][12][13] The first of four Target-exclusive deluxe editions of Swift's 2019 album Lover contained her old diary, in which some of the scrapped lyrics of "All Too Well" can be found: "There we are again / You're crying on the phone / Realized you lost the one real thing you've ever known" was the original bridge of the song, while the original opening lines were "I walked through the door with you / The air was cold / Pictures on the fireplace, you're showing me around." Additional original lyrics included "There we are again / When you blew the candle out / Took this blazing love and steered it right into the ground / Running scared, I was there," and "You'll mail back my things in a box with no note / Except for that scarf from the very first week / Yeah you keep it in your drawer 'cause it smells like me."[14][15]

Following a dispute with Scooter Braun and Big Machine Records over the rights to the masters of her first six studio albums, including Red, Swift announced her intention to re-record each of the albums under her new label, Republic Records. On June 18, 2021, Swift announced that Red (Taylor's Version) would be released on November 12, 2021. In the social media post announcing the album, she wrote, "This will be the first time you hear all 30 songs that were meant to go on Red. And hey, one of them is even ten minutes long," driving widespread speculation that the original 10-minute version of "All Too Well" might be included on Red (Taylor's Version), which was confirmed by Swift releasing the official tracklist on August 6, 2021.[16]

Composition and lyrics[edit]

"All Too Well" is a country,[17] country rock,[18] arena rock, folk,[19] power pop,[20] and soft rock[21] power ballad[22] vividly narrating the difficulty of moving on from a crushing heartbreak. It runs for five minutes and twenty-eight seconds, making it the longest track on the album.[18] Musically, the song is set in the key of C major with a tempo of 94 beats per minute. Swift's vocals range from F3 to D5.[23] The song is instrumented by acoustic and electric guitars, keyboard, drums, and bass.[9] The song follows the track five pattern noted by music critics, in which the fifth track on Swift's albums are the most "anguish-filled" songs, featuring "stabbing lyrics and climactic bridges."[24] The song is often categorized as Red's emotional centerpiece by critics.[25] Brad Nelson of Pitchfork identified the song as the climax of Red's overarching theme that "Nothing dies without leaving some trace of itself."[26]

The lyrics see Swift long for the memories of the relationship[27] that have been frozen in time.[17] Swift sings "I can picture it after all these days," "Time won't fly / It's like I'm paralyzed by it," and "I remember it all too well."[28] The verses narrate expository details.[29] Rebecca Farley of Refinery29 described the lyrics as blameless,[21] lamenting the negative space left by a breakup and recounting the lost memories.[26] Brittany Spanos of Rolling Stone writes that the song describes "the pain of having to piece one's self back together again"[30] after a relationship ends. The song crescendos from a slow, folk-inspired intro to an arena rock bridge,[18][21] where Swift sings "And you call me up again just to break me like a promise / So casually cruel in the name of being honest / I'm a crumpled up piece of paper lying here / 'Cause I remember it all, all, all / Too well."[28] The events are set mainly in autumn,[31] with Swift singing "Autumn leaves falling down like pieces into place / And I can picture it after all these days" in the first verse.[28] Ginny Montalbano of the University of Texas at Austin's Country Music Project highlighted the song's unique structure Swift used to accommodate the song's dramatic details.[18]

The song opens with the lyric "I walked through the door with you / the air was cold / but something about it felt like home somehow / and I left my scarf there at your sister's house / and you've still got it in your drawer even now." The scarf is mentioned again towards the end of the song: "But you keep my old scarf from that very first week / 'Cause it reminds you of innocence and it smells like me / You can't get rid of it 'cause you remember it all too well."[28] Nelson compared the scarf to a Chekhov's gun, symbolizing the persisting emotional flame of their romance long after it has physically ended.[26]

Critical reception[edit]

"All Too Well" has received widespread acclaim from critics, who have lauded it as one of Swift's best-written songs for its heavily detailed and powerful lyrics.[14][18] Rob Sheffield of Rolling Stone ranked it as Swift's greatest song, and wrote that Swift "[spins] a tragic tale of doomed love and scarves and autumn leaves and maple lattes."[32] Brittany Spanos also of Rolling Stone wrote that the song is a "masterpiece of the break-up ballad form".[30] In a track-by-track review of Red, Billboard described the song as a "sumptuous country" track that sees Swift mourn the memories "of a romance that has seemingly been buried in time."[17] Writing for Slant Magazine, Jonathan Keefe chose "All Too Well" as "arguably the finest song in Swift's entire catalogue:" it "crescendos from coffeehouse folk to arena rock [...] until she unleashes one of her best-ever lines [...] and the song explodes into a full-on bloodletting."[19]

In Sam Lansky's review of Red published in Idolator, he stated that of all of the songs on Red, "All Too Well" "hits the hardest... reaching an almost hysterical unraveling."[33] In a ranking of her discography (127 songs at the time of publication), Nate Jones of Vulture ranked "All Too Well" as her second-best song, praising its "string of impeccably observed details" and describing the song as a "kaleidoscopic swirl of images", choosing it as one of her most memorable songs.[27] J. English of NPR praised its maturity compared to her earlier work, writing that Swift "mourns the loss of her innocence" while simultaneously acknowledging her naïveté as she comes of age.[34] In a review of Red, John Dolan of Rolling Stone remarked on the song's imagery, especially in the lyric "We're dancing 'round the kitchen in the refrigerator light",[35] while Michael Robbins of Spin described that same lyric as "gorgeous". Jon Caramanica, writing for The New York Times hailed the petulance of her shouts, resulting in a song that "swells until it erupts."[36]

Commercial performance[edit]

The week her album Red was released, all of the songs charted in different countries due to strong digital sale downloads. On the issue date November 10, 2012, "All Too Well" debuted at number 80 on the Billboard Hot 100, number 22 on the Digital Song Sales chart,[37] number 59 on the Canadian Hot 100, and number 17 on the Hot Country Songs chart. On July 23, 2018, "All Too Well" was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America for selling over 500,000 units in the country.

Live performances[edit]

On January 26, 2014, Swift performed "All Too Well" at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, where Red was nominated for Album of the Year and Best Country Album.[38] Wearing a dramatic beaded gown with sequin detailing and a long train streaming out behind her,[39] she sang while playing piano on a low lit stage, before being joined by a live band midway through the performance. Her performance was praised and received a standing ovation.[40][41] Swift's headbanging at the song's climax gained significant media coverage.[39][42][43] Sean Thomas of The Slanted called it the "performance of the night,"[44] and Amy Sciarretto of Pop Crush hailed it as "unforgettable."[45]

Swift also performed the song live throughout her Red Tour, while playing the piano.[46] On August 21, 2015, Swift performed the song in Los Angeles at the Staples Center, the only time on The 1989 World Tour.[47] On February 4, 2017, Swift performed the song as part of the Super Saturday Night show in Houston.[48]

Swift performed an acoustic version of the song on the first show of her Reputation Stadium Tour in Glendale, Arizona on May 8, 2018,[49] the fifth show in Pasadena, California on May 19, 2018,[50] and the last show of the U.S. leg of the tour in Arlington, Texas on October 6, 2018, the latter of which appeared in her Netflix concert film of the same name.[51] On September 10, 2019, Swift performed the song as part of the City of Lover concert.[52] On October 11, 2019, she performed the song at a Tiny Desk Concert for NPR Music.[53] Swift performed the ten minute version of the song on Saturday Night Live on November 13, 2021 where she was the musical guest for the night.[54]

Recognition[edit]

Many music critics hailed "All Too Well" as Swift's best song in her discography, citing her vivid songwriting that evokes deep emotional engagement.[55][56][57] Rob Sheffield of Rolling Stone commented, "No other song does such a stellar job of showing off her ability to blow up a trivial little detail into a legendary heartache."[58] The song featured on many publications' lists of the best songs from the 2010s decade, including Rolling Stone (5th),[59] Uproxx (10th),[60] Stereogum (14th),[61] and Pitchfork (57th).[62] It featured in unranked 2010s-decade-end lists by Time[63] and Parade,[64] and at number 13 on NPR's readers' poll for the best songs of the same decade.[65] Sheffield ranked "All Too Well" first on his 2010s-decade-end list.[66]

Rolling Stone placed "All Too Well" at number 29 of its 2018 list of the 100 Greatest Songs of the Century So Far,[67] and 69 on its list 2020 revision of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.[68]

Legacy[edit]

Billboard stated "All Too Well" is the song that "proved to skeptics who might've thoughtlessly dismissed Swift as a frivolous pop star—in an era when such artists still weren't given nearly as much credit or attention by critics and older music fans as they are now—that she was in fact a truly formidable singer-songwriter." Bruce Warren, assistant general manager for programming for Philadelphia public radio station WXPN, stated that "All Too Well" foreshadowed Swift's music direction for 2020. He said "In 2014 or 2015, you wouldn't have been able to say, '[Taylor Swift] is working with Justin Vernon,' right? ['All Too Well'] foreshadowed the place she's in now… 'All Too Well' showed the potential of how great a songwriter she would be, and how she would evolve as a songwriter. And [Folklore and Evermore] took her to another level."[69]

Over time, "All Too Well" achieved a cult following within Swift's fanbase, critics and other artists,[69][70] and despite not being a single, it is one of Swift's most widely recognized,[71] requested, and covered songs.[69] Swift herself remarked this unexpected popularity during her Reputation Stadium Tour:[72]

It's weird because I feel like this song has two lives to it in my brain. In my brain, there's the life of this song, where this song was born out of catharsis and venting and trying to get over something and trying to understand it and process it. And then there's the life where it went out into the world and you turned this song into something completely different for me. You turned this song into a collage of memories of watching you scream the words to this song, or seeing pictures that you post to me of you haven written words to this song in your diary, or you showing me your wrist, and you have a tattoo of the lyrics to this song underneath your skin. And that is how you have changed the song "All Too Well" for me.

Upon announcement of the release of the original, 10-minute version of "All Too Well" as part of Swift's second re-recorded album, Red (Taylor's Version), the extended version became the most anticipated song from the album.[69] A short film based on the song, also titled All Too Well, was released on November 12, 2021, alongside Red (Taylor's Version). The short film was written and directed by Swift, who also stars alongside American actors Dylan O'Brien and Sadie Sink.[74]

The scarf[edit]

"All Too Well" opens with the lines "I walked through the door with you / the air was cold / but something about it felt like home somehow / and I left my scarf there at your sister's house / and you've still got it in your drawer even now."[28] Brad Nelson writes in The Atlantic that the scarf is a Chekhov's gun whose reappearance in the final verse ("But you keep my old scarf from that very first week / 'cause it reminds you of innocence / and it smells like me") is thoughtful and "brutal". He explained the missing scarf quickly became a "fantastic pop culture mystery" that has created much online buzz.[75] According to the lyrics, the scarf was originally lost at the residence of American actress Maggie Gyllenhaal, sister of Jake Gyllenhaal, but when enquired about this in 2017, Maggie Gyllenhaal stated she has no idea where the scarf is, and did not understand why people asked her about it until an interviewer explained the lyrics to her.[76] According to music journalist Rob Sheffield, both the song and the scarf are so significant to Swift's discography that it "should be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame."[32] The scarf has become a symbol in Swift's fandom, inspiring jokes, memes, and interview questions.[77] It has even inspired numerous fan fictions in other fandoms. Writer Kaitlyn Tiffany of The Verge described the scarf as "the green dock light of our time."[12] NME critic Rhian Daly said the scarf is "an unlikely pop culture icon in an inanimate object".[78]

Swift re-recorded two versions of "All Too Well" for her 2021 re-recorded album Red (Taylor's Version). The first, "All Too Well (Taylor's Version)", is a re-recording of the 2012 track; the second, "All Too Well (10 Minute Version)",[note 3] is the unabridged version of the song, containing its original verses and melodies before they were trimmed off. Swift released the 10 Minute Version for digital download and streaming, as a promotional single from Red (Taylor's Version) on November 15, 2021, through Republic Records. The day after the digital release, Swift performed the song after the screening of All Too Well: The Short Film at its film premiere, and on Saturday Night Live the following night.[88]

"All Too Well (10 Minute Version)" was met with rave reviews from music critics, many of whom praised its song structure, Swift's display of "epic" songcraft, and the extended storytelling for providing more context and perspective than the five-minute version. Commercially,[note 4] "All Too Well (Taylor's Version)" topped the charts in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, the United States, Malaysia, and Singapore, where the track became the longest song in history to top all of those charts; Swift achieved Chart Doubles in the first five of the said countries by topping each of their albums charts with Red (Taylor's Version) the same week. The song landed inside the top five in India and the United Kingdom.

Background and release[edit]

After a public dispute over the ownership of Swift's back catalog under her previous label Big Machine, Swift began re-recording her entire back catalog in November 2020 to claim the rights to her master recordings. After her first re-recorded album, Fearless (Taylor's Version)—the re-recording of her 2008 album, Swift followed with Red (Taylor's Version)—the re-recording of her 2012 album.[89] Red (Taylor's Version), released on November 12, 2021, features two versions of "All Too Well": a re-recording of the original one subtitled "Taylor's Version", and a 10-minute version subtitled "10 Minute Version (Taylor's Version) (from the Vault)".[90][91]

Before "All Too Well" was cut down to a 10-minute version and then more to a final five minute and twenty-eight second version, American songwriter Liz Rose, who Swift wrote the song with, believed it was "probably a 20-minute song".[6] Swift had conceived the song in February 2011 while at a band rehearsal for the Speak Now World Tour.[3][92][93]

"All Too Well (10 Minute Version)" was released as a digital promotional single on Swift's webstore on November 15, 2021, exclusively to U.S. customers.[94] The live version from All Too Well: The Short Film premiere was released to iTunes Store the same day.[95] The acoustic "Sad Girl Autumn" version, recorded at Aaron Dessner's Long Pond Studio in Hudson Valley, was released on November 17.[96]

Short film[edit]

On November 5, 2021, Swift posted a teaser of a self-directed short film for the 10-minute version, titled All Too Well: The Short Film, based on the premise of the song, and stars Sadie Sink and Dylan O'Brien as a couple in a romantic relationship that ultimately falls apart; Swift also makes a brief appearance. It was released at 7pm ET on November 12, 2021.[97]

Critical reception[edit]

"All Too Well (10 Minute Version)" was met with widespread critical acclaim,[98] often hailed as the standout track on Red (Taylor's Version) and a career highlight for Swift. Rolling Stone music critic Rob Sheffield lauded the 10-minute version for evoking even more intense emotional conflict compared to the already sentimental original one: "[It] sums up Swift at her absolute best."[99] Helen Brown of The Independent stated the song is a more feminist proposition with its new lyrics.[100] NME's Hannah Mylrea wrote, at its full intended length, "All Too Well (10 Minute Version)" confirms its place as an "epic", exhibiting proficient storytelling, vocal performance and instrumentation.[101] Beth Kirkbride, writing for Clash, said the "epic" song "will go down in history as one of the best breakup songs ever written."[102] Kate Solomon of i wrote the pain "feels raw" in Swift's voice and the song's 10-minute length "passes a little like how your mind wanders in a way you can't replicate as soon as you realise you're doing it."[103]

Variety's Chris Willman dubbed the song as Swift's "holy grail", and felt glad the singer did not discard the original lyrics, which turn the song into "a stream-of-consciousness epic ballad", filled with more references and specifics of the song's storyline.[104] Reviewing for The Line of Best Fit, Paul Bridgewater opined the 10 minute version is "as disarming as it is fascinating"—"an artefact of [Swift's] songwriting and recording process." He asserted that the song magnifies the truncated version's drama and emotion.[105] Slant Magazine critic Jonathan Keefe stated, while the truncated version solely focuses on catharsis from a painful relationship, the unabridged version "more openly implicates the ex who's responsible for causing that pain", and changes the overall tone of "All Too Well" with its new verses and song structure.[106]

Bobby Olivier of Spin praised the song as "Swift's single finest piece of songwriting" and named it the album's standout.[107] Melissa Reguieri, in her USA Today review, said the song "lopes through encyclopedic lyrics that both bite and wound in their honesty and pain."[108] Sputnikmusic staff critic wrote "All Too Well (10 Minute Version)" is "not a flashy pop song or an endearingly rural slice of country" but simply a raw depiction of Swift's emotions, praised the lyric "You kept me like a secret, but I kept you like an oath", and concluded that the song is "a towering breakup ballad" that is representative of Swift's songwriting habit of "expressing these commonplace emotions in uniquely uncommon ways."[109]

Lydia Burgham of The New Zealand Herald commented on its lyrics, saying they "paint a vivid picture of an ill-fated romance that cuts deep and captures the universal language of heartbreak."[110] The Guardian writer Laura Snapes also dubbed the song an epic track, "one that eviscerates her slick ex in a series of ever-more climactic verses that never resolve to a chorus, just a shuddered realisation of how vividly she recalls his disregard." Snapes associated the lyric "soldier who's returning half her weight" with Swift's eating disorder, and interpreted it as a nod to the physical manifestations of heartache.[111] In a less complimentary review, Olivia Horn from Pitchfork felt the song was too long and sprawling, undermining the emotional climax of the truncated version.[112]

Commercial performance[edit]

"All Too Well (Taylor's Version)"[note 4] debuted at number one on the Australian ARIA Singles Chart the same week Red (Taylor's Version) topped the Australian ARIA Albums Chart, earning Swift a fourth "Chart Double".[note 5] It also helped Swift score a "Chart Double" in Ireland.[114] The song entered the UK Singles Chart at number three, the longest song to reach the top three in chart history.[115]

"All Too Well (10 Minute Version)" became the longest song ever to top the Billboard Hot 100, surpassing the eight-minute "American Pie" by Don McLean (pictured).

On the US Billboard Hot 100, "All Too Well (Taylor's Version)" is Swift's eighth number-one song. It became the longest song to top the chart, surpassing Don McLean's 1972 song "American Pie (Parts I & II)", with little airplay. Topping the Billboard Hot 100 the same week Red (Taylor's Version) topped the Billboard 200, it marked Swift's third time to top both charts the same week.[note 6] As Swift's 30th top-ten entry, it made her the sixth artist to reach the milestone. It was her fifth song to top Billboard's Streaming Songs and 23rd to top Billboard's Digital Song Sales charts, extending her record as the female musician with the most chart toppers on both.[116] "All Too Well (Taylor's Version)" is Swift's ninth number-one song on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart[98] 18th number-one song on Billboard's Country Digital Song Sales chart, and sixth number-one song on Billboard's Country Streaming Songs chart, confirming her status as the artist with the most number-one songs on the latter two.[117]

In Canada, "All Too Well (Taylor's Version)" opened at the number-one spot of the Canadian Hot 100 chart, becoming Swift's eighth chart-topping song there. The same week, Red (Taylor's Version) had topped the Canadian Albums Chart.[118][119]
