10 Best Taylor Swift Non-Singles

We all want that playlist of Taylor Swift songs that haven't been overplayed. It's an innate human desire. Here are the best Swift songs that haven't been killed by radio and that you've probably forgotten about by now. (inspired by a Consequence of Sound post that inevitably picked all the worst songs, so I had to do the concept justice).
10Taylor Swift

"How You Get The Girl" - Probably has one of the most memorable hooks on 1989, which is a feat in itself. The lyrics are kinda cute which is a plus.
9Taylor Swift

"Change" - Actually kind of compelling in the sense that it feels like a fresh start/new beginning. As inspirational as a Taylor Swift song gets, which may not be a glowing endorsement, but it makes this song stand out. The waves of guitars/drums feel powerful compared to the twangy country-pop that makes up the rest of Fearless.
8Taylor Swift

"Wonderland" - New Romantics got all the attention as the best b-side from 1989 (and it is), but Wonderland is a pretty ethereal pop tune. The chorus has a bit of a Rihanna-Umbrella "ay, ay, ay" that is kind of repetitive and annoying, but the rest of it is pure mid-tempo pop goodness. The atmosphere here is particularly great for a mainstream popper.
7Taylor Swift

"Breathe" - A truly sad, romantic country-pop ballad. The chorus is little more than Swift elongating the word breathe, but it's much better than that description sounds and is genuinely emotive. It's a must-listen as far as slow Swift breakup ballads go.
6Taylor Swift
Speak Now

"Last Kiss" - A pretty damned meaningful song in the context of Swift's drama-filled ramblings. Her best and most unsung breakup ballad. "So I'll watch your life in pictures like I used to watch you sleep / And I feel you forget me like I used to feel you breathe."
5Taylor Swift
Speak Now

"Haunted" - The strings here are magnificent and serve as the driving force for the track's momentum. Chorus vaguely reminds me of something Amy Lee would do, for whatever reason. Either way, this is a top-tier Swift non-single that probably could have been a successful one.

"I'm Only Me When I'm With You" - The best track from her debut didn't even make the album. This bonus cut is a fun, upbeat country tune with plenty of friendship-bordering-on-romanticism to indulge in.
3Taylor Swift

"Forever & Always" (*especially the platinum piano version) - Still amazes me that this song was never released as a single, as it bears all the markings of one (super catchy, perfect length). The piano version is actually touching, all around this is an obvious choice to make a list like this.
2Taylor Swift

"The Lucky One" - A song about wishing away the spotlight, and for once it actually seems genuine. "You took the money and your dignity and got the hell took some time but I understand it now." The drums and lyrics steal the show here, a rare combination for Swift.
1Taylor Swift
Speak Now

"Enchanted" - Imagine all the stuff that Disney magic is made of - fireflies, floating lanterns, girl-meets-boy love - and trap in in a bottle. That's what this song is. Don't listen if you're not okay with floating off into a starry-eyed state of memorization for the rest of the day.
