This "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together"/"Bad Blood" mashup is the Taylor Swift song we didn't know we needed
“Bad Blood” is currently the kick-butt, girl power, ka-pow song of the moment, but remember back in the summer of 2012 when “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” was the international lady anthem? Those lyrics bring back so many great memories of driving with the windows down, singing “NEVER” at the top of my lungs, and coveting Taylor Swift’s adorable black hipster frames to the point that I started wearing plastic glasses with no lenses (awkward).
Both songs are so ridiculously good, and now you can listen to them at the same time. That’s right, double the Swifty goodness. A beautiful angel of music, YouTuber Andrea Suarez, has created the most fabulous, seamless mashup of “Bad Blood” and “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” Who knew that the fiery fierceness of Taylor’s most recent single would jam so well with her adorable yet powerful single from three years ago?
Even the videos play together perfectly. It’s cool to be reminded of these different sides of Tay and see how much she’s grown. In the “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” video, she was a quirky version of spunky with her cute PJ’s and bangs and those glasses (why am I so obsessed with those glasses?). But Taylor’s spunkiness in “Bad Blood” is much more dangerous, more calculated and focused — she still has that unique Taylor Swift sweetness, but she’s not afraid to fight for herself and her friends. Plus, now she has side-bangs.
Now, please excuse me while I listen to this mashup on repeat for the rest of the weekend.
