I KNEW YOU WERE TROUBLE
Was this Taylor Swift song written about her time with John Mayer or Jake Gyllenhaal? What? I have a weakness for Hollywood gossip, my secret shame. Sighs. So, yes, I have heard this song on the radio, but didn’t really pay attention to it because I didn’t realize it was a different song than the never getting back together song. Don’t get me wrong, I admire Taylor Swift — the girl is only 22 and she’s been writing music/lyrics like no tomorrow with amazing success. Very catchy tunes at that! I can’t even remember which keys are what from my childhood time learning piano for goodness sakes.
BACK TO THE COVER
SO let’s get back to this cover. I luuuurve it.so.much. I am a grown-up (I say with a straight face) but have replayed this cover so many times that I’m getting the evil eye over here. [Aside: “Come on now, I’ve converted you by playing it over and over, right?”….*eye roll* returned…and, oh, what’s this? A defeated nod with downcast eyes? “You can thank me later.”]
Props to Walk Off The Earth doing this acapella-styles. I just watched Pitch Perfect so am enthralled. A big YES that the group is Canadian, woot! And features the robotic beatbox styling of KRNFX (pronounced “Korean FX”), Canada’s beatbox champ Terry Im–thank you for representing Asian Canadians.
Okay, just listen to it, will you? No matter how much you may snub your nose at the original version or its songstress. Personally made my day. A little joy matters!
