Top 10 Taylor Swift Slow Songs

Now is your time to vote what is your favorite slow song from Taylor Swift.

The Top Ten

1 All Too Well All Too Well

I listened to this after I had a fallout with my best friend and have to say that I bawled my eyes out, especially during the "dance around the kitchen in the refrigerator light" part. The emotional lyrics blend so well with the music ambience. - alexko

All Too Well is her saddest song. Lyrics 'You call me up again just to break me like a promise' always made me in tear because how he abuse her and realise how much promise he not fulfill such as ignore her birthday.She also write her second saddest song The Moment I Knew about that.

This has the best lyrics and composition out of most songs in this list :) Each lyric is relatable, even 'You tell me about your past thinking your future was me'. Her lyrics are just so on point. LOVE the way she almost screams towards the end of the bridge.

This song is amazing! I cried the first time I heard it. The lyrics are amazing and she sounds so emotional.

2 Teardrops on My Guitar Teardrops on My Guitar

This song should be on the top and not here, it actually deserves that spot! It explains exactly how it feels to see the one you love, loving someone else. It's such an heart-breaking song and I can't believe I can relate to it too

I love all of the emotions that Taylor talks about in this song; she is an amazing singer / songwriter and she tells her personal stories in her songs. She can help young women who are going through there first loves. It is amazing in so many different ways. This is why this song should stay in first place forever and always. She is a very honest person and a very generous being to. She is my idol and she always will be.

I think this song supposed to ranked first, this song is really beautiful, it's like we can feel how Taylor swift's painful love back when she's still in high school

I love all of the emotions in it. Number one her songs are so real. This one is the best!
I listen to it every day1 I can't believe she wrote it. It is totally real. I love all of her songs so much.13!

3 White Horse White Horse

i like it

This song made cry.

Before I say anything about this song I just wanna say WHERE IS THE LUCKY ONE it's really hard to make my dad cry but the lucky one made him cry anyway love this song

great song but it's never too late for a white horse - MatrixGuy

4 Tim McGraw

LOVE THIS SONG! It reflects my first heartbreak in every single note.

This was Miss Swift's first single and she definitely did justice to it! I just adore the beat and sweetness of it, I also think it was really cool how she named it after a country star from a different generation. Thanks to this song, I now know who Tim McGraw is.

I don't want anyone to think I don't LOVE the song white horse but Tim McGraw is so good it needs to be higher. Just don't ask me to pick between Tim McGraw and teardrops on my guitar I just can't choose.

Oh please mate, this HAS to be ranked higher! I mean, how is I Knew You Were Trouble a slow song? It rubbish and nothing compared to the greatest song by Taylor ever made, Tim McGraw!

5 Last Kiss

Last Kiss should be number 1. Love this song it should have been the first single. Taylor sings really well in this song and I can't help but picture a love story music video every time I hear this song. That is what Taylor Swift does to me! Love this!

Last Kiss breaks my heart every time. It's one of Taylor's saddest songs along with Cold As You, You're Not Sorry, All Too Well, I Almost Do and The Last Time. The lyrics are beautiful and the whole song is just perfect!

Last kiss should be number one. I know its hard to make the list of taylor songs because every song of her is just amazing and catchy. Listen to this song. This song is full of emotional feelings.

This song is SO GOOD! Its really touching at how great taylor wrote every detail so beutifully that it almost makes me cry. This song is so pretty and so is Taylor. PLEASE LISTEN TO THE SONG

6 Back to December

I cry every time I listen to this song because of how relatable it is. It's so powerful musically and lyrically. It's a true masterpiece written by an amazing artist.

Great Slow Song from Taylor.
Taylor absolutely a great country female singer. Her voice was so beautiful especially in this song. This song showed the quality of Taylor that she was not just a great singer but also a great songwriter. Thumbs

This song is amazing. I love how she admits to herself and everyone that she made a mistake. That's one of the reasons why I love Taylor, because after everyone of her songs I feel like that was my life in a nutshell...

It's one of the greatest songs I have ever heard. The first time I heard it I cried. It's too sad. The emotions are very raw. I have heard this song like a thousand times but still can't get over it. This song makes me believe in true love.

7 Begin Again

I love the lyrics "on a Wednesday, in a cafe, I watched it begin again"

Most of her other slow songs are about losing someone, breaking up, and giving up. Begin again is different. Not only is it beautiful with great lyrics, it's one of her few that's a song of hope. I love it for all that it represents, and this really is a great song to dance to with someone you love.

My favorite is back to december, but I voted this because this beautiful song is deserve to get higher rank

I just love this song. Its like the story of my life: the bad relationship with her ex is al my friends who betrayed me in my entire life up till now, and the new guy is my friends from now who are being really great to me and I just can't understand why.

8 You're Not Sorry

Addicted! I can never stop listening to Taylor and this song! This is my favorite song and I could listen to this song for the rest of my life!

"And you can tell me that you're sorry but I don't believe you baby like I did before" it really represents all the mistakes people make in relationships.. I love it

I love this song! But it's a little sad when she says "and you can tell me that your sorry but I don't believe you baby like I did before" always makes me heartbroken for some reason

I am in love with this song! It is just so relate able! I've never gotten bored of this song! It deserves to be first on the list!

9 Safe & Sound

Why are we voting against Taylor's own songs? All are PRO.

P.S. Very Calm Song.

This song totally reminds me about the hunger games! Well duh, it is so is eyes open. My favorite part is don't you dare look out your window darling everything's on fire, the war outside our door keeps raging on. Hold on to this lullaby even when the musics gone gone. Please watch my video on youtube also sad if you like cats)) it's called: my cats inspiring story by joe viera a black cat laying on a bed bye and by the way lets vote for this to be number one!

I love this song! It's music is totally fantastic and Taylor's voice awesome! I love the meaning of it's lyrics all the same. This one's a little different than Taylor's other songs. I don't know why but it gives me a different feeling...

Such a pretty song! This is so better than teardrops on my guitar! "Just close your eyes, the sun is going down, you'll be alright, no one can hurt you now, come morning light, you and I'll be SAFE AND SOUND."

10 Ours

Love this song..Taylor can you please visit us again in the Philippines? WE LOVE YOU..

Love this song.. Awesome Taylor!.. Must say.. The love for your songs! Mmm! But the love is ours.. Love you Taylor!

Not exactly slow, but I still love this song.

If you haven't seen the video, watch it, it is so cute!


The Contenders

11 Breathe

I ADORE THIS SONG I PLAYED THIS MORE THAN 150 TIMES THIS song is just amazing, I love it I wish I could choose all the songs of taylor cause all her songs are all amazing I can't really choose but I did cause I absolutely adore this song

My other choices would be last kiss, back to December, untouchable, cold as you, innocent and back to December

I love the guitar solo at the beginning of this song! I've listened to this countless number of times and it is just so touching and beautiful!

"And we know it's never simple, never easy, never a clean break, no one here to save me." This songs makes me cry, it's just something everyone can relate to, feeling like you've lost someone. It's one of my favourite Taylor Swift songs.

This song croons about a broken friendship and Taylor has really sang this song with emotions. For best enjoyment, listen to all of Taylor slow songs with your eyes closed to feel the emotions surging.

12 Fifteen

I think fifteen Is the best song at describing your teenage self. If you have already been through or going through being a teenager you can relate to the lyrics. It is a really good song to teach teenagers also that life isn't just about boys when your 'fifteen'

The song of my life.
Well except for the kissing and dating the boy on the footboy team and the best friend.

My favorite songs by her:
Our Song

13 Cold as You

This just connects to me so much especially how people how could turn so quickly

Fantastic, it soothes me when I'm like really mad and it's just the BEST song ever. I could totally imagine how Taylor felt when she like wrote this song that could also have a bit of sad essence in it

This song helped me get through a terrible relationship and I thought he loved me but This song helped me realize he never did. And I'm over him now.

It's so amazing!

14 Enchanted

This song was the first song I've ever heard from Taylor. I decided then to hear more of her music, turns out I'm in love with nearly every song so far. The lyrics reminded me of me thinking about that one boy. I clearly love this song to death.

Amazing song with beautiful lyrics. Taylor sings very beautifully in this song!

Great song but it isn't slow..?

So beautiful! Should be at least number 3!

15 Innocent

This is a song that God will sing to us. I think God guided Taylor while she was writing this. This is telling us that the mistakes we've done do not say what we R. It was not our fault that we did our mistakes.

All Taylor's songs are amazing - I couldn't choose my favorite song - but I voted for Innocent because it's unique as many of Taylor's songs are about love. I think it's quite hard to make a song about forgiveness sophisticated and popular without sounding goody-two-shoes or old-fashioned in this decade.

16 Love Story

I love this song so much! I really like all others as well like teardrops on my guitar and also Never Grow Up! Love Taylor

This is so beautiful song...

40? What's wrong with you people?!

This is her best song

17 Tied Together With a Smile

This song is deeply moving and incredibly emotional. The only possible reason that this is down this low on the list is that it's pretty Unknown. Best lyrics are: 'you cry but you don't tell anyone / you might not be the golden one / and you're tied together with a smile / but you're coming undone.'

She sings about depression, self harm and suicide in this song. Taylor wrote this after she she found out that one of her friends had anorexia and I can relate very deeply to how she must have felt back then and the mood of this song.

18 Forever & Always

I listened to the radio version, and could relate to the lyrics, but I felt it was too fast paced for the sad songs. Then I heard the piano version, and was almost moved to tears. It was incredible. Deserves all your votes, even if it isn't as popular. Just look at the lyrics, and listen.

Listening to it right now, have been for 5 hours, best song ever!

Way better than original. So sad and so true

The only reason this song is waaayyy down here is because it was not released as a single, I really love this song, and "Cold As You" is my next favourite to "Forever & Always (Piano Version)"

19 Dear John

This song is amazing. Every word, lyric, strum, breath is meaningful and precise. You can feel the pain and hurt, as well as the fire. How is this not number one?

This song is amazing. It is my favorite. It is powerful and strong but sad and tender. As mentioned bellow, you can feel emotion in every breath, strum, lyric and word. You can hear and feel her pain and anger. This is a masterpiece. This song proves her diversity. She's got a strong and powerful voice, but also a tender one.

This songs shows that taylor can sing high notes so so so well! Her voice is really strong there!

An awesome slow song!

20 The Last Time

Great song... totally relatable to book characters Leafpool and Crowfeather if you have read warriors! Although it is my second favorite Taylor Swift song (the first being all too well) I have more reasons to like this song.

.this song is my favorite I love everything in this song

21 Come In With the Rain

I could go back to every laughs but I don't wanna go there anymore...

This song is so unnoticed, but it's one I listen to while lying around and staring at the wall, listening to the rain upon the window.

22 Untouchable

Most beautiful song in the world, I love it so much, it's just all you feel when you fall for that one untouchable boy, but you're so caught up in him, it's all you feel, really, that's why I adore tay tay, she really is amazing,

I so love this song. I've heared it so many times! "In the middle of the night when I'm in this dream
It's like a million little stars spelling out your name... "Best Lyrics Ever!

Why is this song not number #1? It's her bestestestestestest song ever! It's so underrated, but SO gorgeous!

Second best tswift song of all time! Should be number 1 on this list

23 Crazier

Really sweet song. Deserves much more credit because it never officially made an album, was for the hannah Montana movie

This is my favourite song from Taylor swift. Its BEAUTIFUL!

Best Taylor swift song I have listen. I love the lyrics. This song remembers me Christmas time.

Its Beautiful...

24 You Belong With Me

This song is awesome and totally deserves to be at least in the top 10. Not number 22 (it's ironic because that's the title of one of her songs) I love this song!

It is awesome song and I love it very much. I think it is in number 11

25 The Moment I Knew

Taylor Swift’s saddest song

Who wouldn't write a song about the one person you care about most not coming to your birthday party?

This is the best of her slow songs why isn't it at least on the top 15

I think many people haven't listened to this song, 'cause if it was the case, it'll be on the top 5! This is an amazing song! The first time I listened to it I was like "Oh my God! One of the best songs I've ever listened to! " You should listen to it - perreth

26 Wildest Dreams

I wouldn't call this a slow song, but it is definitely sad. Reminiscing, in a way. This is one of my favorite songs off of 1989, because the lyrics, the intimacy, and definitely the melody.

Wildest dreams is not exactly slow. I think Style is the best slow from 1989.

BEST BEST BEST! It's quite sad, but it's so meaningful!

One of my ultimate favorite slow songs by Taylor!

27 Never Grow Up

I remember the first time I had listened to it completely, I felt like I couldn't do anything before (as of right now I'm 11) then afterwards I realized that I should try my best to enjoy every single moment of my childhood while I still can.

Sweet and meaningful

That one point when her voice breaks when she sings "i don't wanna ever grow up" is so emotional, I cry every time!

This song makes me cry. it reminds me of everything relates to my childhood. And mom, dad, my sis and cousins, it's like everything you could remember and will remember. So I don't think it should be on the #26. I think they have overrated you belong with me (as you see above) which ain't even a SLOW song. This song are many different feelings, emotions and stories, the whisper' of mom to her kid, and the response of the grown-up-kid. It is just AMAZING. It should be #1. The only song of Taylor could make me cry like this. Listen to songs please, don't you jusst hear it.

28 Sad, Beautiful, Tragic

I love this song because it tells a story and you can hear the emotion in her voice the lyrics are meaningful and it's just amazing

The music can make you cry, her voice is heartbreaking, and don't even get me started on the lyrics

Best! But 25! - Heyy7868

Saddest Song EVER...not even just because of the lyrics...just the music in it makes me almost cry

29 Everything Has Changed

This should definitely be higher! It is so sweet and a good slow song to dance to. Actually, I danced to it last night at a dance and I felt a connection... My new favorite song because of that.

I think this song is really great. Especially two of the most amazing artists like Taylor and ed are combined into a song. This deserves to be in the top ten.

This is my favorite song. the duet of two persons with an angelic voice is love

A great song by ed sheeran and taylor;one of the bes songs by taylor ever, it is really good and I absolutley love it, definitely reccomend listing to it it is absolutley amazing and really inspiring. The music video is so cute too! Guys, you HAVE to try it out

30 If This Was a Movie

I think this song was so meaningful... It's like, we hope the somebody to come here and stay with us, but only in the movie.. Not in reality..

Beautiful... Should be number 6 or 7

31 Mary's Song (Oh My My My)
32 Haunted

This is the best Taylor Swift song, I think. This song is definitely not the type she usually sings. I am in love witch this song. This song is my favorite. I really LOVE it. I would personally recommend this to be on the top of "Top 10 Taylor Swift Break Up Songs. " I love you Taylor for creating a song like this.

33 I Almost Do

I wish that I could run to you... Every time I don't, I almost do.

Why was this not on the list already?
'I can't say hello to you and risk another goodbye'

And asking me if I want to try again with you... and I almost do
this song makes me really sad! I can really feel the emotions huhuhu

34 The Best Day

This song should be number one. It's so sweet that even though she's famous she still loves her family. I seriously cried when I first heard this song. It's so sweet and nice that she cares about her family, the song just shows how family is important. That note at the end that said "I love you Mom" made me lose it. It's such a good song even if you don't like Taylor Swift, you should still listen to.

Favourite family song ever...

This song makes me cry about how fast I grew up and how grateful I am for my parents for helping me in every moment of my life.

The only song by taylor which talking about fathers and no votes?.. so mean -_-!

35 Ronan

I love Taylor, but this was too much. It's so sad. Anyone who listens to this song should know their lucky.

I can't even listen to it without crying it should at least be in the top 20

Slow song but seriously this song is so sad and emotional

So sad it almost made me cry... Taylor Swift biggest fan!

36 Invisible

This song are the best.. Although it was slow song, I can't understand the meaning of this song... 'with can be a beautiful, miracle, unbelieveable, state I'm just invisible'

"She can’t see the way your eyes
Light up when you smile.
She’ll never notice how you stop and stare
Whenever she walks by.

And you can’t see me wantin' you the way you want her
But you are everything to me"

37 Style
38 Long Live

Taylor on her speak now world tour said that this song is totally, 100 percent for us (her fans)totally in love with this song & it's lyrics

39 This Love

This song is so soothing, the music makes you feel like everything will be okay, forget all your problems. Such a happy and relaxing song.

This song is one of her best. It has a dreamy effect. It sad and sweet and essential. It's got a lot of emotion. This song, like Dear John, again proves the diversity of her voice.

Great song, should be in top 20.

40 Beautiful Eyes

Beautiful girl I loved her your capable baby girl her boyfriend always can be broke herself and you know you are always sweet actress

Beautiful song that reminds me of my boyfriend

41 Come Back... Be Here

So sad but such an amazing song! Please listen!

Should be on top 10. one of the best


This song is Foch tSx icebjxsxhysfkbh. Yes. That's exactly what it is.

42 Clean

This song is very deep and renewing. I think it is very strong, yet soft at the same time.

This should be in the top 10! And when it gets there, Think I'm finally clean.

This song is definitely the "part two" to All Too Well.

The secret message to this song is "She lost him, but she found herself, and somehow that was everything."

The broken, lost, blurred girl found herself.


This song should be in number 1-ssb

43 Blank Space

Not a sad song but amazing song...

This might not be a sad song, but...


Blank space is not a sad song but I love it! 😍

44 You Are In Love

I love this song.. So soothing.

I am absolutely in love with this song even though it is slow it is just beautiful! ❤️❤️❤️

45 Didn't They

Sad, unreleased song, but so sad about 9/11.

46 Dark Blue Tennessee

Probably possesing the saddest melody of Taylor Swift songs. Instrumentals perfectly supplement the emotion. The song deals with 2 exes who still love each other but neither wants to admit it.

47 Superstar
48 Welcome to New York
49 Starlight
50 Mine

My first taylor swift song I had ever heard. It continues to be my fave because it reminds me of my recent breakup

Every time when I listen 2 dis song it makes me remember my boyfriend

This is one of her est songs, but not a slow song... - perreth

Great song with a great story.why isn't it at least on top 10!
