People Are Smartly Refusing to Listen to Taylor Swift’s Earth, Wind & Fire Cover

I don’t know who decided that maudlin, stripped-down covers of up-tempo classic songs were a good idea, but I hope he goes deaf and loses the ability to play a musical instument.

Oh, too soon? You know he wrote that song about his best friend’s wife, right? Next time just lock the window and spare us 20 years of Phil Collins bullshit.

The latest person do one of these depressing covers of a great song is Taylor Swift, who decided that what Earth, Wind & Fire’s classic “September” needed was banjos. Seriously.

Jesus Christ, why don’t you just dig up Maurice White and punch him in the dick while you’re at it? I made it through about 30 seconds of that and I had start playing the original just to avoid stabbing myself in the ears.

Yeah, that’s the stuff. See how that’s fun to listen to listen to and makes you smile instead of being a chore? That’s what makes that song good, Taylor. Just break up with Joe Alwyn and write some new original songs to save us from accidentally playing this on a jukebox after a few beers in five years.

I’m not the only person who hates this song, though.

Some people didn’t listen to Swift’s cover at all. Here at The Blemish, we call those people “the lucky ones”.

Of course, Taylor Swift has her defenders, too.

Come on, I said way meaner things about Eric Clapton in this article, and I actually like him. Hell, even Quincy Jones likes him.

Yes, my personal aesthetic is tying my self worth to defending millionaire celebrities who are getting dunked on Twitter, too.

You’ve given me a lot to think about, EnchantedSwift7. Like who EnchantedSwift1 through 6 are and what they’re doing with their lives.

Most of the bitching about Miss Swifts take on September is from Blacks, I have read in some of these post that it is a Black anthem which is played at most Black gatherings. If so most copies were stolen (taken with out paying for it) as there were only 500,000 copies sold from 1978 to 2006. and in the last 12 years it has not managed to make it to platinum. Maybe Miss Swifts version can make the song a million seller.
