Top Ten Best Taylor Swift Songs

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Untouchable

This song really is beautiful
Is slow with a nice melody, and I lose myself in it every time.
I think we can all relate to this song; about falling for someone whose out of your reach

This song is beautiful, yet not that famous... Yet! I hope the next time I check, it's going to be on number #1

Taylor didn't write this song, it's a cover of a very unknown song, but the emotion she puts in this song is flawless. Her voice and the melody gives me shivers, and whenever I hear this song I just get all emotional. This song has a deep meaning. I'm sure a lot of people have been able to relate to falling for someone who is 'untouchable' and I'm sure we've all experienced feeling 'caught up' in someone. Amazing song, so underrated and should be more recognised!

This song gives me goosebumps. It should be higher on the list!

42 Last Kiss

Such a beautiful song. I cry when I listen to it. This should be in the top ten, at least.

You can hear her emotion in this song. It's so beautiful. She's able to express herself so well and make you really feel what she's feeling. It's an amazing song which is SO well written! One of her best songs, I'd say. It can make me cry.

The best song ever done by Alison about a break-up. Well I don't what the 'hack' is up with you people but this deserves to be in the top 10!

This song always makes me cry "I keep up with our old friend just to ask them how you are, hope it's nice where you are" it looks like she gave her all emotion in this song.
love this

43 Eyes Open

44 The Last Time

Best collaboration that she has ever done. By far one of the best songs that she has off of her new album "Red". The emotion in the song is beautiful and her voice makes you really feel the song.

The vocals in the song are so amazing and heart felt. Her voice goes so smoothly with Gary LIghtbulb. Its really a song that sounds so sincere that is really easy to relate to. It's my personal favorite for her along with Red.

Amazing song! Great Collaboration! By far one of her best songs off of "RED"

Say what now! 43rd place! I love the duet with Gary Lightbody! So peaceful to hear anytime and anywhere, keep up the good work Taylor! You're absolutely beautiful in voice and look.
I can kind of understand. This song isn't really popular. I've only noticed the music video about a month ago. Very good.

45 Starlight

Awesome song// add a shine to her album RED.. I hated colour red before she announced the name of her album! Now my dresses, laptop, lipstick, nailpaints, shoes, earrings, jeans, wallpaper, curtains, guitar and even my spectacles are all RED!


Needs to be higher, love to dance to this

Just a great song. No other words to describe this. Bye. But a wonderful song!

46 Holy Ground

It's Country-Rock and I can bet If she released this as a single. It would have exploded the charts. Awesome Song from her best Album RED. :-)

This song is so infectious, and I like that it's cheerful even though she's looking back on a relationship after it ended. It's so upbeat, it just makes you wanna dance, or like, roll your windows down and crank the music up! It REALLY needs to be higher on the list!

The beat is just like, yes! Why 48th place! At least 5th place! All her non-popular songs are usually good. Why?

47 Should've Said No

The best song ever. My friends and I took a vote to see witch taylor swift song I could sing the best. EVERYONE PICKED THIS SONG I memorized it. It was my first taylor swift song. Number 1 is my 2nd best ts song I could sing well. I LOVE THIS SONG SO MUCH THAT NOW MY FAVORITE GAME IS A SINGING CONTEST BECAUSE I ALWAYS WIN and because we have 3 judges and only 2 competitors. Me and someone else.

This is the greatest break up songs ever written. It is a very good example of how Taylor can turn a simple scenario (a real one that actually happened to her) in to a masterpiece. Guy is with Taylor. Taylor hears rumours he cheated. She confronts him. Taylor tells him he is an idiot and he has lost her forever. Sticks her knife in at the end asking if it was all worth it. Boy I be the is sorry now! It's also a great song to play on the guitar!

It's so good! Practically every taylor swift fan knows it, but it's so far down! Trust me, you'll be happy you did!

This is my favorite song

48 Wildest Dreams

How is this 120? Seriously guys, this has to be her best song, with All Too Well a close second. 1989 is very different from her old albums, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. This song is about being so in love with someone that you're terrified the relationship is going to end. Give it a listen if you haven't yet, you definitely won't regret it. Very Lana Del Rey.

'I thought heaven can't help me now,
Nothing lasts forever.
But this is gonna take me down.
He's so tall, and handsome as hell,
He's so bad, but he does it so well.
I can see the end, as it begins,
My one condition is...

Say you'll remember me,
Standing in a nice dress, staring at the sunset babe.
Red lips and rosy-cheeks,
Say you'll see me again even if it's just in your...
Wildest dreams, aha, ah'

There are so many songs from Taylor Swift that I am head over heels in love with, so I really couldn't possible choose. For me, Widest Dreams will never get old. I don't know about the others, but I will never get tired of listening to it.

Only 62? I don't really like songs from 1989, but this one! My god, it's the best one of this album, it's on my top 5! I thought a lot of people loved it... The bridge of the song is wonderful, when she sings "Burning it down" and there are echoes... Just amazing! - perreth

Tay-Tay's best song yet. Why is it #47? The chorus is amazing and that part where she goes ''Ah-ah, ah,ah'' is marvelous. The song is sung with T-Swizzle's beautiful voice obvious and the lyrics are sweet as sugar. Check out YouTube personality Psychosoprano and her later ego, Miranda Sings, singing this amazing song at v=Yda5FZgw_00

49 Today Was a Fairytale

This has to be the best one undoubtedly...

The way she sings
"You told me I was pretty when I looked like a mess
Today was a fairy tale
Time slows down
Whenever you're around

But can you feel this Magic in the air?
It must've been the way you kissed me
Fell in love when I saw you standin there
It must've been the way
Today was a fairy tale"

These are the best wordings in the song... Just love this song..

Amazing song great lyrics, actually real meaningful lyrics! Love This song

Its an amazing song... I think it should be among top ten

I love this song. - BeaM456

50 I Almost Do

I love this song. It is so emotional. It's so romantic and sad. I just love to listen to this amazing song. Please help get this song up to a higher number. I hope you at least listen to it. This is such a great song.

This song is so good and really romantic. It makes me think it is so sweet. I absolutely love this song. I can't believe its not rated yet it should be rated number 1 or 2. Please help to get it higher up on this list!

I got this song when I got my RED album. And my mom and I were on a FOUR HOUR DRIVE. When I got to this song, I couldn't wait for this song to go on again (Once the album would play all the songs and start all over). It has SUCH a beautiful and touching beat with the sweetest lyrcys.

My favorite song by her BY FAR!

51 The Way I Loved You

TS is the best singer in the world. I love all of her songs except Fifteen. I've been waiting 2 see 1 of her concerts for 2 yrs. I might go see 1 when I turn 13 or 14

I love this song! Personally, I can't relate to it but I love the concept even if it isn't exactly a happy feeling of song.

I love this song like I love sparkles and having the last word and that's real love...

This song is so beautifully done. I can't get enough. It beings tears to my eyes every time.

52 The Moment I Knew

The Moment I Knew made me cried hard for the first three times I heard this. I can't believe such a lovely girl like Taylor was treated trashy by whoever this song is about. What a tragic. This song should be at least at top 20. I love you Taylor. I love all of your songs but at the time being, this is my favorite of all. Thanks for being an inspiration.

How can it be 59?! To me, it's definitely on the top 5! The lyrics are so sad! When she sings "And it was like slow motion! ", I really feel like it's slow motion! Amazing! Just listen to it and you'll love it! - perreth

This song :O It should have been on the main Red CD it's incredible

53 Out of the Woods

This an amazing major anthem! It is so 80's and loud and original... how could you compare it to anything else!?

Too sophisticated for her fan base. They don't see the genius to write such an out of character song.

I LOVE Taylor Swift and I HATE being rude, but this's her worst song EVER. I'm sorry, if that sounded as if I DON'T liker HER (BECAUSE I LOVE HER! ) but, this song sucks. The ONLY song that I skip when I play 1989. The rest of them (just like ALL of her songs) are amazing, but this one.

I'm going to get a lot of hate for this, but I think this is one of my least favorite Taylor Swift songs. The music video isn't all to good, I just don't like the sound, feel, or lyrics.

54 Clean

Seeing this song at number 61 just breaks my heart. This is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard, and that's saying something. This is, without a doubt, one of the best songs ever written. This is more than a break-up song. It's a song about getting over something that you lost. Not only that, but it's about learning from your mistakes. The line "just because you're clean don't mean you don't miss it" is one of my favorite lyrics of all time. In short, this song is beautiful, relatable, and Taylor's best song by far. Definitely deserves the top 3.

This is by far the best song from 1989. I'm so sad that this song is not getting as much hype as the "famous songs" like Blank Space, Bad Blood, etc. This song is not only beautifully sung, it has the most amazing lyrics. So sad it's not higher up...

Clean is so great for when you are just getting over a breakup. Taylor herself said that if all the swifties' minds were wiped, the one song she would want them to remember is clean out of all the others.

Nobody in my school will understand how beautiful this song is, but they don't know. It's better then Shake it Off and Blank Space (I still like them, don't get me wrong), because it's fresh, original, beautiful, relateable, just everything they aren't.

55 The Lucky One

This song needs more attention. It's in my top 5 at least, and considering I have 87 of her songs on my phone, that's saying something. Taylor is a great story teller, and this song is possibly the best example of that.

The lyrics are so clever, and I like that she invented this character and wrote the song about her. But the structure of the song is what really shines.

In the first verse, her character is so optimistic and excited about becoming famous. Another name goes up in lights Like diamonds in the sky. You can just picture the dreamy eyed girl, on her way to happily ever after. In that first chorus, she really believes she's lucky, and it's all good... Until But can you tell me now, you're the lucky one? which introduces a note of doubt.

Then the second verse has all these negative and scary aspects of fame, mirroring the first verse in a twisted irony "All the young things line up to take your place Another name goes up in lights You wonder if you'll ...more

I really think this awesome song should be way higher on the list. It's so beautiful. It shows us how hard it would be to be celebrity and famous. With paparazzi following you around and 'your secrets splashed on the news front page'.

This song is unpopular, but it is my personal favorite. It talks about becoming a rising star ("New to town with a made up name in the Angels city chasing fortune and fame...") and the whole transformation you take and how suddenly your name goes up in lights. Then, the song takes a curve when "...they tell you that you're lucky, but you're so confused. You don't look pretty, you just feel used". And then how after all that, she comes back to town and she is told how you "took the money and your dignity and got the hell out". And then it just takes another curve back to the beginning. I still do not know how she did not choose this as a single, it would have topped the charts!

This song is my favorite song by her in the album Red but, why isn't this noticed more! The lyrics are pretty well thought. Why, why, why?

56 Hey Stephen

I love Taylor Swift an her songs so much. I'm crazy about her (:
She's beautiful, smart, cool, friendly, sincere, she wrote too many great songs and I think she's really really perfect! Taylor, you're my favorite singer, you're the best! THANK YOU!

This deserves a lot of votes and I CANNOT believe it is the 58th. It's so lively and active and bouncy and it makes you feel like you really like Stephen. And you go on secretly calling your boyfriend Stephen. It makes you feel like you're right outside your dream guys' backyard with pebbles in your hands OR looking out of the window into the rain imagining you're kissing a guy... It made me did that :P

32? Oh come on people vote up!.. I love this song! Loved it when I heard it 4 years back and still it's my favorite one!

57 Dear John

This song is so underrated I feel personally offended. "The girl in the dress cried the whole way home" "I'm shining like fireworks over your sad empty town" "You paint me a blue sky then go back and turn it to rain" "I lived in your chess game, but you changed the rules everyday" "Don't you think nineteen's too young to be played by your dark-twisted games when I loved you so? "
A NINETEEN YEAR OLD WROTE THIS SONG! I cry every time I listen to this masterpiece.

My boyfriend's name is John I sing this song to myself to tell myself that I'm strong enough to live on my own however I'm not till over him and now he's calling to say sorry so I finally on the day of annual function sung Dear John and you're not sorry to show that I can find a lot better than him

This is my favorite Taylor song because it's so emotional and the lyrics are genius. The lyric "The girl in the dress cried the whole way home." is heart breaking. You could tell Taylor was crying when she wrote this.

58 Stay Beautiful

I cannot believe this is only 52! This is definitely my favorite song by Taylor Swift! The line "It's hard to make a conversation when he's taking my breath away" is legit my favorite line out of any of Taylor's songs!

I honestly love this song, it might be one of my favourites. It never gets old and perfectly sums up having an unattainable crush, something we can all relate to. This song makes me smile to myself even though it's kind of sad, it brings back some really great memories and that's a part of the reason I love it so much. I agree about the line, "It's hard to make a conversation when he's taking my breath away,"

By far my favorite song by Taylor swift! It always puts me in a good mood and never gets old (: this should definitely be in top 10

Wait, I just want to know - this isn't about Cory Monteith is it? Because if it is, I'll probably go drown myself in tears.

59 The Outside

I love the outside a lot of people don't know this song that is why it is number 46! LOVE THIS SONG! :)

This is a great song it really shows what taylor was going through when she was a child, I love the way she is so open about things that affected her!

AMAZING :D this song is so relateable


60 A Place in This World

This song always cheers me up when I'm sad because I know that everyone has problems not just me!

A very original song by Taylor herself. She wrote it at the age of thirteen, I am so jealous. A song which really tells people about her life before moving to Nashville and knowing her destiny. - snowygal123

This song was featured on Ramona and Beezus... A Selena Gomez movie. Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez Rock! It's a song many people can relate to... Keep Up the Awesome Work Tay!

Whenever I feel like I won't amount to anything I find myself humming this song. The lyrics are really relatable, and the melody is kind of cheerful, it always lights up my mood. I really love her first songs, you know with the naive writing using simple words to express what she and every teenager have on their heart.
