Today is Friday the 13th and perceived as an unlucky day in Western society. Something about Jason Voorhees appears on your Tinder date if you allow a cat to cross in front of you or something along that day.
I personally never believed in the superstition until this morning. As I was scrolling through my Twitter feed, I came across a tweet that read, “Hear Taylor Swift’s cover Earth, Wind, and Fire’s soul classic “September.”
I thought my eyes were deceiving me, but they were not. Taylor Swift took it upon herself to record a stripped down banjo playing, unseasoned chicken version of a wedding song staple. Out of all the songs in the world, this is what Taylor Swifts decides this is what we need?
Haven’t we suffered enough since Nov 2016? Maurice White did not form one of the greatest funk/R&B bands of all time that provided some of the most celebrated songs ever so Taylor could produce a bland version to put us all to sleep. The lease Taylor could do is stay in her lane and cover a Garth Brooks tune or something.
As Ira Madison says, I’m a need Taylor to keep it.
Here are some of my favorite tweets dragging Taylor Swift’s cover.
