I became a fan of Taylor Swift this past weekend.
Her song “You Belong with Me” is pretty much inescapable on the radio these days, and to tell you the truth, I don’t mind at all — it’s about as catch of a pop song (even for country music) as you’ll find.
She also was a pretty good host on Saturday Night Live, with a monologue that poked fun at all the pop culture issues that seem to follow her (her love life with Joe Jonas and, now, a dude from Twighlight; the Kanye West VMA fiasco). She was fun and energetic, and it was definitely the best SNL this season.
Today, I found another reason to like Taylor Swift: “You Belong with Me” has been covered on YouTube by Butch Walker, a singer/songwriter I first saw at Lollapalooza in 2008 and have enjoyed ever since.
