If you were lucky enough to attend Taylor Swift’s 1989 World Tour last year, you undoubtedly witnessed the rock-inspired remix of her hit “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” The second I heard it, I was hoping she’d release either a studio version or live version of it..theoretically she did because she released video footage of it on Apple Music.
Anyway, I was searching around for a studio version of it, and I found this remix a fan made, and it’s pretty close to what she actually did live (although I’m pretty sure the grunts we hear throughout the remix are actually Cher Lloyd from her song “Want U Back.”)
This DJ/remixer/fan has several other Taylor Swift remixes, which are pretty stunning, but I have to say his acoustic remixes of “Clean” and “Wildest Dreams” are pretty spectacular (see below).
To give you an idea of what Swift did during her 1989 World Tour, here’s a clip:
I woke up early this morning and for some reason had the urge to check Twitter. It was as if the gods were telling me something amazing had happened. And I saw that Taylor Swift had brought out Lisa Kudrow (as Phoebe Buffay) on her latest show of the 1989 World Tour to play “Smelly Cat.”
I don’t know how long this clip will last on Youtube (they’re bound to pull it down), but Taylor Swift introduces Kudrow as a “singer [who] has only performed in coffee houses before…this is Phoebe Buffay.” Phoebe finally made it!
They then proceeded to recreate this scene from Friends:
Now, I’m happy to report, “smelly cat” is a top trending topic on Twitter and Facebook. It’s crazy to think after like twenty years, people still remember Phoebe and her songs.

Taylor Swift finally kicked off her 1989 World Tour in Tokyo last night…or is it this morning? It’s weird, I was reading tweets from T. Swift and her fans this morning around 9 a.m. and they were discussing how the show just ended and how the “night” was awesome…time change, what are you gonna do… Anyway, I saw an article that caught my eye about how Taylor Swift was “badass.” It explained that she turned her 2012 hit “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” into a rock song. Check it out:
This has made me more excited to see the show (I’m going at the end of July), but also made me hope she releases a studio version of this. My guess is she won’t, but I like the aggressive grunts she adds in and the heavy guitar. She really is badass.
