Mariah Carey's prolific career as a recording artist has spanned nearly 26 years, 14 studio albums — not including the numerous compilations, greatest hits and live albums — five octaves, and numerous No. 1 hits.

However, some of Carey's best songs were never released as singles. Here are 10 worth listening to:
