5 Spot: Most Epic Taylor Swift Covers
If you still haven’t heard today’s exciting music news, Ryan Adams has finally released his full-album cover of Taylor Swift’s 1989, and man, does he do it justice. Not only do listeners get to hear Adams' unique take on the songs (he channels Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young) but it’s refreshing to hear Swift’s lyrics in a new light. After hearing all of the covered songs it got us thinking that there could be more epic Taylor Swift covers out there... And sure enough, there is.
Ryan Adams covers Bad Blood
We had to start the list with a Ryan Adams track. He takes on the song that pretty much invented #squadgoals and gives it a softer edge. The original song is great, but it rides along the edge of nasty since she’s singing about an ex-friend (a’hem, Katy Perry). But on Adams' version, the lyrics don’t come off as harsh and it sounds like he is singing to an old lover or friend.
