"Opinions on Swift covering "September""


  

          

I just saw this on twitter, I'd drop a link but the articles I'm seeing are pretty much left&right on the issue

I argue the reason she made it a country version is because she don't have the style to do a good cover of a song originally performed by Black men

I'm just laughing at the people saying this version is better or opened their eyes to the song in a new way. . . like, for real? lol

also, I love the original too much to hear some soft ass country version

What say you General Discussion?

I'm not opposed to different arrangements. Shoot, I once heard a country arrangement of Ann Peebles' "I Can't Stand the Rain" that was released in the '70s that was pretty good. But if you're going to set foot on the hallowed ground of one of the best songs of all time, you better come correct. She didn't.

given her voice and stylistic range I don't think it had a chance to be good

this just reminded me of that Atlanta episode from last month when Paper Boi chunked his phone at the end

I had no idea that was an actual "thing" thing, I just remember seeing niykee heaton do it and suffering an eye-roll hemorrhage

so they really had a challenge for that shit? lol I just thought it was the evolution of gentrification/appropriation mixed with internet. . .

nah, that's exactly what it was.

That's one of the Holy Grail of Black folx songs. Every family reunion or cookout this song gets played.

TaySwift is just a big joke, shit even her label relabeled her as a pop rock artist instead of a country act.

She needs to get real people around her, cause all her managers, friends, studio people should've told her from jump this wasn't a good idea.

She seems like she trolls black folks (the background dancers, jacking Beyonce, this EW&F "cover"), trolls ex-boyfriends (aren't most of her songs about how some dude she loved did her wrong?), and trolls other female artists. She's also the perpetual victim (she acts like Kanye Deebo slapped her on stage while screaming "shutup!").

She definitely seems like the type to call the cops on a well-dressed black man at Starbucks because "how does that thug get to have a better job than me and my man?"

Yeah this is how a lot of people see her, even white people are disgusted of her and her personality & music, it's like she came out the box and then they want her to be put back in her box to be never heard from again, but then you got her fans who seems oblivious to all of this and can't get enough of her music...smh.

I just know her voice and that she has seemingly come no where near r&b and when the subtext said "country version" -_-

funny thing is though, I bet a Jessie Ware or Adele, shit, even Pink might do it justice

Vanilla Mantis don't have the chops to fuck with EW&F

yall can come at me for this. . .

BUT

I can totally see Vanilla Mantis doing a Janet cover and it being decent, maybe a "Time Flies" or "Pleasure Principle", but that's Janet so I'd probably still get mad lol

one more time for effect

Taylor gets a cut from Spotify plays, so I'm sure she had to pay for a (mechanical?) license for the song. So they are most likely getting paid. The cover truly is awful, though.

A Korean R&B song sampled EWF's "Brazilian Rhyme" recently, and I was glad to see the the credit was included in the YouTube page's information, which means they are getting some royalties: https://youtu.be/jNqqBiIQsRQ?t=1m10s

I can see hardcore Areosmith fans being salty.

But I was roughly 12-12 when it dropped, so kids my age weren't that invested in Aerosmith at the time. They loved that they could have a rap/rock song.

They should be sending her all type of fruit baskets as a thank you for making they washed up asses relevant again.
