Song of the Day - Riptide by Taylor Swift (and Vance Joy)

Vance Joy's Riptide has been tearing up the indie music scene for a while now. It's still one of my favorite songs and I especially love listening to it on evening strolls with my dog. I was scrolling through my Bloglovin' feed this weekend when I saw that Planet Lux had featured this cover. It's no secret that T Swift is a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine (I have been caught singing You Belong With Me when I thought no one was home), so I was pretty excited about this. You'll have to judge for yourself, but I think Taylor does an amazing job of respecting the original song, but also adding herself to it. I've also included the original version below. Thanks to Gemma for leading me onto this one!
