TAYLOR COUNTDOWN: 2 DAYS
Contrary to your belief, there are people out there who adore Taylor Swift more than I do.
And they’re talented musicians.
Take this one–Mary–singing “You Belong With Me”
My favorite part of Mary’s performance–filled with props that Taylor, no doubt, appropriates in her real life–happens around the 35 second mark.
During the lyrics “She’ll never know your story like I do,” Mary pulls out a Bible, bearing some kind of label (is it from the library?), and holds it in front of her distressed face. Maybe if she selected Swann’s Way, I’d understand the meaningfulness of her literary selection … and facial expression.
But Mary knows the Bible. The cheerleader “she” in the song, who wears short skirts and high heels, clearly does not. Mary sings “You Belong With Me” at Sunday church services, exalting at the alter.
Good for Mary–and Jesus, her subject.
And then there’s BatRomeo, who took it upon himself to rewrite “Love Story” from Romeo’s perspective.
Clad in a vintage Batman T-shirt with 99cent store RayBans, BatRomeo wants to tell his Love Story on his own terms.You’ll be the princess. I’ll be the prince. Oh. It’s a love story just say yes.
BatRomeo’s voice is sweet, though. I’ll give him that.
Who knows? BatRomeo could be Taylor’s next muse. He’s almost 1/100th as attractive as Taylor Lautner.
These two, Mary Kate and Ashley, definitely adore Taylor more than I do, and win the covers competition on Taylor’s Ham.
Singing “Our Song,” Mary Kate and Ashley in similarly tweeny outfits (purple and pink, of course) manage to pull off a pretty good harmony. Mary Kate strums the guitar while Ashley keeps the rhythm with her bouncing dance moves.
They are the next Taylor Swifts.
FYI: If I’m ever on YouTube singing a Taylor Swift song, you know you won’t find it here.
