When the guy who did “Chocolate Rain” covers a song, particularly a pop song, you have to stop and listen.
Tay Zonday states at the beginning of his “Shake It Off” video that he’s trying to make the song “more epic” with his cover. And I must say, listening to this felt like Tay was distracting us with the video while his words and chords secretly commanded armies to surge forth and attack. I don’t know why that is. Don’t ask me to explain it. But that is what I felt. I’m slightly afraid for my life at the moment. Do you think an apartment deadbolt can stop an army? Humor me, okay?
