Hanson Cover Taylor Swift’s ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’
Oh hey Hanson! It’s been a hot minute since we’ve seen these three… probably because they’ve been busy making lots and lots of babies. But the band of brothers reunited to perform their version of Taylor Swift‘s ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,’ and it was kind of awesome.
Performing for a radio show, the now young men traded in a version of their awesome hit ‘MMMBop’ for Swift’s song, which kind of bummed us out, but at least their version of the longest song title in history was different vocal wise (duh, they’re dudes), and harmony wise. In other words, Zac, Taylor, and Issac opted to sing the entire song rather than speak it like Swift does sans the chorus.
But what we loved and appreciated the most was that they decided not to recreate that phone conversation that’s in Swift’s version, “Huh, he calls me up and he’s like, I still love you / And I’m like, I just, I mean this is exhausting, you know.” Yea, there was none of that during Hanson’s cover and for that we award them a generous dose of our love, which is usually reserved for Adam Levine.
We love their Swift cover so much, but can we please have our performance of ‘MMMBop’ now?
