Taylor Swift has become one of the biggest and most popular pop stars in the industry. Everyone knows her hits "Shake It Off," "Blank Space," "Style" and most recently "Bad Blood." But lots of people forget that Taylor has been putting out albums since 2006, almost 10 years ago! Here are the top 13 old Taylor Swift songs from 2006 - 2012.
1) "Tied Together With a Smile"

Album: Taylor Swift (Bonus Track Version)
Track: 7

I'm pretty sure this is a song about overcoming self-harm and depression, with the message "you're coming undone because your smile is breaking, but hang in there." This song is powerful and inspirational, and I love it!
2) "Dear John"

Album: Speak Now
Track: 5

Taylor allegedly wrote this song about her breakup with John Mayer, who wasn't so happy about it, but this song doesn't get as much attention because it's a bit longer and slower. Nonetheless, it's a great song, the lyrics are deep and meaningful as to how John hurt her, and it's worth purchasing.
3) "White Horse"

Album: Fearless
Track: 5

Say you're sorry that this song's amazing, and gets better every time you listen to it. This song was one of my favorites from Fearless, it was on every Taylor Swift playlist of mine from 2009-2011.
4) "Last Kiss"

Album: Speak Now
Track: 13

This song is one of my personal faves - I even used it in a project for music class. Everyone's pretty sure that she wrote this about Joe Jonas. This song is largely popular within the Swiftie fandom, we even have a day for it - #lastkissday on July 9, at 1:58 a.m., named after the lyrics "I still remember the look on your face, light through the darkness, at 1:58... that July 9, the beat of your heart". LOVE. THIS. SONG.
5) "Better than Revenge"

Album: Speak Now
Track: 10

This one goes hand-in-hand with last kiss as far as subject matter. Taylor allegedly wrote this song about actress Camilla Belle who Joe left Taylor for. This song is fast, upbeat, relatable for some, and at her tour the performance SLAYED. $1.29 ? -PURCHASED.
6) "Haunted"

Album: Speak Now
Track: 12

This song haunts me with how amazing it is. That's all.
7) "Sparks Fly"

Album: Speak Now
Track: 2

What to say about this song? Only that it's like my favorite one ever. She opened her Speak Now World Tour with this song and I was just like YAS. The dress was gorgeous and the vocals were ON. POINT. If I could only pick one song on this list to purchase, I would DEFINITELY choose this one.
8) "You're Not Sorry"

Album: Fearless
Track: 9

This song is amazing, and I love it. It was used when Taylor guest-starred on CSI. They made a remix that I obviously own. Also, at her Speak Now World Tour, Taylor did a mashup of "Back to December," "Apologize" by Timbaland ft. OneRepublic and "You're not Sorry" - SLAY.
9) "Tim McGraw"

Album: Taylor Swift (Bonus Track Version)
Track: 1

This is the first song Taylor wrote WAY back in 2006. I love this song so much and I'm not even really a country fan. I realized there was a music video for it, too, and when I watched it, I died because she looks so different and just ASDFGHJKL!!!! Whether you're a pop OR country fan, I would listen to this - it's AMAZING.
10) "Starlight"

Album: RED
Track: 15

I said, "Oh my, what a marvelous tune, this is the best song ever, never will forget how we moved." Taylor is talking about a magical night with a guy "in the summer of '45" - an old love story perhaps?
11) "Everything has Changed" ft. Ed Sheeran

Album: RED
Track: 14

Yes, this is the famous Sweeran collaboration - #RIPME. As if the song wasn't emotional enough for us all, they made a video with themselves as little kids and Ed and Taylor were the parents, and OMG, it was AMAZING!
12) "All Too Well"

Album: RED
Track: 5

Did anyone NOT see that Grammy's performance with Taylor and the piano? This song gives me #ALLTHEFEELS. Like ALL of them, they're all mine.
13) "Long Live"

Album: Speak Now
Track: 14

This song is AMAZING. I think it's one of the better songs she's written in her career. I would totally recommend buying this song, but warning - you'll most likely cry.
