See Taylor’s Hits Go Rock and Punk

Imagine Dragons and Charli XCX Cover Swift's Pop Hits

Never underestimate the appeal of a Taylor Swift song. This week, two of her pop hits were rearranged and covered by different bands for a BBC Radio 1 program. Alternative rock group Imagine Dragons took a slow approach to Swift’s hit “Blank Space” and included a mash-up of the Motown classic, “Stand by Me.” Watch it now.

Pop-punk starlet Charli XCX added some edge to Swift’s “Shake It Off.” The result isn’t exactly a true punk interpretation, but it’s still a fresh take. Watch it here.

Robin Richardson has covered country music since the day Eddie Rabbitt died. Not that she had anything to do with it.
