Top 10 Taylor Swift Songs with the Best Instrumentals

The Top Ten

1 Haunted

The instrumental to this is simply haunting. The violins and guitars clash and create an aggressive, intense sound and everything fades in and out exactly when it needs to. It doesn't stop being amazing at any point during the song, it just keeps going and changing and progressing until it comes to a sudden but insanely satisfying end. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

2 State of Grace

Literally seems like it's a top notch U2 instrumental with some added country flavor that only makes it all the better.

that GUITAR though. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

3 All Too Well

I've said multiple times that this is Taylor's best song. While the lyrics are really the star of this show, the drums, piano, and especially guitar are all absolutely amazing on this song. The best part is the insanely intense guitar/drum buildup right before Taylor gets into probably my favorite bridge I've heard in any song ever. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

4 Better Than Revenge

The instrumental on this one is simply perfect. The Alt. Rock sound she went for on this song fits the awesome pettiness and savageness of the song to a tee. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

5 Out of the Woods

The constant "oh oh wha-oh"s, the airy, reflective synth, and the subtle but sure drum work makes this song one hell of a listen. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

6 Picture to Burn

Country Rock at its finest. Taylor has never sounded more bad ass than she does on this song. The guitar work sounds like the highest class version of a Kid Rock dish. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

7 Fearless

The backing on this track makes you feel as if you're riding through a wheat field on a cloud. It's so polished and pretty that I can't help but adore it. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

8 Stay Stay Stay

It's just so... Happy. It makes me happy even, and I'm not typically a very happy person. Even on my most Sarcastic and smart Alec-y of days this instrumental can make me smile. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

9 Clean

Imogen Heap and Taylor at both of their bests. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

10 The Moment I Knew

The percussion really does it for me on this one. It hits perfectly and emphasizes the themes of the song. - TheEvilNuggetCookie
