At the rate she’s going, Taylor Swift should put out an album of cover songs… or maybe 12. Winning the award for most thoughtful pop star ever, while on her “Speak Now” tour, Tay makes it a point to cover a song by a local artist. She covered “Sugar We’re Goin’ Down” by Fall Out Boy in Chicago, she tackled Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” in Detroit, and Tay sang Nelly’s “Just A Dream” in St. Louis.
Adding to that list is (the best karaoke jam ever!) Bryan Adams’ “Summer Of ’69,” Ms. Swift’s cover of choice during her stopover in Vancouver this past Saturday. Casually strumming her guitar, as Taylor sang the first words of the Canadian’s most popular hit, the audience erupted with excitement — they knew right away what was about to go down. In her adorable country-pop twang, Taylor sang Bryan’s iconic lyrics: “I got my first real six-string/Bought it at the five-and-dime/Played till my fingers bled/It was summer of ’69.”
At the end of her cover, Taylor Swift smiled big and and told the audience, “I love you more than I even know how to tell you.” Mm, we’re pretty sure they love you back just as much.
