Music Monday. Even Better Than the Original: Blank Space.


Time for another Music Monday brought to you by Always Me.

Rules from Lauren:
Every Monday share one or two of songs you’ve been enjoying lately.  It doesn’t have to be a specific genre, new, or one of your favorites – just something you’d like to share with others.  If possible, share a music or lyric video of the song and your thoughts on the song(s), artist(s), and/or music video(s).

If you would like to participate in Music Monday, please join the link up by sharing your post’s url over at this week’s post on Always Me.

I love when other artists cover a song and do an even better job (at least, in my opinion) than the original artist.

My son adores Taylor Swift, and we had her 1989 album on repeat for a long time. But I’ve found that I enjoy covers of Ms. Swift’s songs so much more than her originals. Take the song Blank Space. Her version is great, but I think these two versions are EVEN BETTER. (My son disagrees with me. 😉 )

Ryan Adams – Blank Space

Imagine Dragons – Blank Space/Stand By Me


Honestly, I prefer to listen to Ryan Adam’s version of the 1989 album over Taylor’s original. I love what he did with her songs.

Do you have any remakes that you prefer over the original song?

  1. In this case I like the original better haha tho I wanted to like the Imagine Dragons more because I love them!

    Disturbed did a cover of The Sound of Silence that is amazing. I don’t know who the orignal artist was but I didn’t like it at all and I love Disturbed’s version.


    • The Sound of Silence is originally by Simon & Garfunkel. I will check out the Distributed cover! I love to hear how other artists interpret. Although I will say I’m a fan of the original. 😉


  2. Difficult to say, in this case I think I prefer the original version, however, I do enjoy the live lounge and how talented these musicians are with their cleverly adapted versions!

    Here is my version of Music Monday!

    Have a great week. Oh, and I followed your blog! Love the hidden staircase name 🙂
