Is Taylor Swift's country cover of 'September' disrespectful? | The Tylt
Taylor Swift garnered backlash following her country cover of Earth, Wind & Fire's classic "September." The iconic smash is a song about joy, yet Taylor's banjo-filled cover isn't joyous, but kind of sad and critics find it to be disrespectful. Chicago Tribune writes "covers shouldn’t be reverent, but they should have some respect." But Swifties love her rendition of "September" and say her haters are just going to hate, hate, hate, hate, hate. Is the cover inappropriate? 🎤

If you don’t like Taylor Swift, you’re not going to like her cover of September. That’s all there is to it. She performed it exactly like she would have 5-10 years ago, and it shows. For what it is (a song performed by Taylor Swift), it’s really good.— Thomas J. Gleaton (@thomasgleaton) April 13, 2018
