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.

Nah. The song is so immature and outright stupid that Kanye is probably somewhere laughing his ass off.

She could have released a track of her farting and it’d be #1. With her, that’s not a good demonstration of if it being a good song.

It’s genius? It’s not even music.
This generic crap wouldn’t have managed to be a B-side on a Madonna single 20 years ago.

Funny, She sold out 5 nights at the Staple Center for 1989 which seated a total of 86,000 people, She has sold 120,000 tickets in the Rose Bowl so far for the “Reputation”. I doubt he is laughing to loud, he made $31,745,967 on his Saint Pablo Tour, she sold $180,000,000 worth of tickets the first week.

oh my fucking god !!!!!!

she’s so existential… she’s so multidimensional… she’s so fucking awesomely…. banal and pedantic.

So you really don’t have to have anything one the ball other than a good PR firm and a fair agent to be a success as a pop star.

I didn’t believe them. It’s still hard to believe.

Sailor Twit – the rally face of the nazi generation.

Nice one. The one trick pony and the goosesteppers.

Sieg Heil, frau Taylor. I see you’re on to your next crossover genre.

The only racist here is you. It consumes you to the point of you making retarded comments like this.

“Except, anyone can join. Even if they are not, wait for it, fans of Taylor.” How would a phone app know whether or not someone is a fan of Taylor Swift? What’s it going to do, read all your archived text messages to see if you talk about Miss Swift with your friends and determine if you said positive or negative things about her?

“Taylor has been criticized by just about everyone for not speaking for or against Trump”

Yeah Taylor is missing a beat here, I mean we all just *love* to be lectured by sage-like showbiz celebrities about politics, right?

1/3rd of the country supports being mean and fueling drama, while the other 2/3rds has had enough. So Taylor’s drama filled, passive aggressive, mean girl behavior is no longer tolerated by most. Most of us had enough of Taylor & people like her.

No doubt she will sell out if her rich father and rich close business connections buy them up to save her REPUTATION.
