Songs from the Unknown

So one of my favorite bloggers, Elizabeth at Southern Finesse, does a weekly series called Songs from the Unknown where she lists songs in different genres that have never been released as singles. She is having a link up this week, so I decided I definitely need to participate. I think that most of time when you listen to an entire album put out by an artist, instead of just their singles, you can come across some of their best stuff! Today I'm going to just talk about my two favorite album artists. I also recommend Billy Joel, The Monkees, The Beach Boys, The Carpenters, and John Michael Montgomery, but considering so many of my favorites songs of theirs are singles, I couldn't include my favorites in this post.

Taylor Swift. Okay, it's controversial but whatever, I think Taylor Swift is one of the best song writers of all time, of all time! I really don't understand all the hate she gets; this girl is talented! Every single one of her songs is catchy and honestly, there isn't even ONE song off any of her 4 studio albums that I don't like. Plus she's a good person, she's been deemed the world's most charitable celebrity for two years running! She is the epitome of album writer in my opinion; she doesn't only write singles (but she does have a bajillion). I got her first CD when only one of her singles, Tim McGraw, had been released back in September 2006. P.S. When you buy her CDs, always buy the bonus editions from Target because she releases like 3-4 extra songs on those and they are usually awesome! Here are just a few of my favorite of her non-singles:

The Band Perry. Okay, if you don't have their album, you need to get it. I love listening, okay, singing along to, ALL of their songs. Seriously, this is one of my favorite albums ever, GET IT and listen to ALL the songs. Here are a just three of my favorites not released as singles, but I really love all of them:

Have you heard of any of these songs? Who are your favorite album artists?

  1. i've never heard of the band perry but i do love the carpenters!

    -kathy | Vodka and Soda

  2. Billy Joel is on my concert to-do list but I admit, I only really know the hits. You should send me some songs to check out! I'm not a big country fan so you got me on all these!

  3. I know none of these songs but I probably would have known any John Michael Montgomery song, I love that guy but hadn't thought of him in years!

  4. I LOVE THE BAND PERRY. Also, I thought Enchanted was a single? Regardless, T Swizzle IS a fantastic songwriter. My favorite of hers is Never Grow Up

  5. YES! I love all of your picks and 100% agree with your assessment of Taylor Swift. I don't understand all the hate either.

    Thanks for linking up!

  6. I know, I think, 3 on the T Swift list. I don't hate her necessarily, there's a lot of songs I like and I used to love her with her first album, but I hate that she still tries to be classified as country. Sweetheart, no. You're pop. The end. So I get frustrated when she wins country awards for songs that sound like Britney Spears.

  7. I loved Taylor Swifts first album with lots of songs from the unknown.

  8. I love Taylor Swift and The Band Perry. One of my favorites from T.Swift is Speak Now. I like Chainsaw and Forever Mine Nevermind.

    What great picks!

  9. The Band Perry is my favorite! Like their album pioneer is playing 75% of the time in my car and I.just.can't.quit.

  10. I love Taylor too. She's also such a good role model for young girls.

    I haven't head the Band Perry. Going to have to check out some of their songs :)

  11. I totally agree about Taylor. I really hate all the Taylor haters out there. She isn't out in Hollywood partying and getting DUIs!

    Love all of those songs!

  12. I love the other side of the door by Taylor!
