It’s not enough that Taylor Swift makes plenty of inescapably wonderful pop hits of her own. She also puts amazing twists on songs by other artists. Listen to an old recording of her singing a song by… Eminem!
Taylor’s covers are always fun—when I saw her in New Jersey, it was hometown heroes Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi. Back in 2006, at age 16, she stopped by Froggy Radio in Pittsburgh to try her hand at rapping. Listen to her intense guitar playing and verse-spitting on Eminem’s song “Lose Yourself.” Good memorization, girl. She sounds kind of like I do in the car, to be honest.
