Taylor Swift, T-Swizzle, whatever you call her, she’s pretty much running the music industry right now. She bought Apple to its knees, had the best-selling album of last year despite the fact that it came out at the end of October, and is a lock to have the #1 album of this year as well. Then there’s her music, which is pretty much inescapable and also catchy as hell. Even if you hate her music, you’ve probably heard “Shake It Off,” “Blank Space” (or it’s metalcore covers), and the reigning #1 pop song currently, “Bad Blood.” Now Anthony Vincent, the voice of Ten Second Songs, has given the song a 20-style makeover.
We’re sure you’re familiar enough with Ten Second Songs to know what the deal is – ten seconds of the song in a different style that runs the gamut, and this is no different. Vincent handles all of them surprisingly well, but for the most part the original song is unrecognizable. He does excellent imitations, both vocally and musically, of Def Leppard, Black Sabbath, Max Cavalera, and Disturbed. He also throws in some oddball imitations, like Isaac “Chef” Hayes, Tiny Tim, Cyndi Lauper and even Barney the purple dinosaur. We’re sure Taylor herself would be proud. It’s the very definition of a viral hit, in that by the time this is published, it will have logged 350,000 views in less than a day. Will it be able to top the 16 million hits his take of Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” got? Guess we’ll have to wait to find out.
