“Blank Space” is Taylor Swift’s latest offering, and it’s quite possibly one of the best songs released this year. Unsurprisingly, the single was able to top multiple charts just a few days after its release, breaking new records for the country musician. The Inquisitr has had a wonderful coverage of “Blank Space’s” rise to glory, tracking the song’s every giant step towards pop domination.
And just with every other successful pop hits, Blank Space was able to inspire multiple talented musicians to put their own melodic twist on the song. Here are five of the best “Blank Space” covers on YouTube right now.
5. Annie Pattison
Pattison’s cold acoustic twist to the song is a must-hear.
4. Jonathan Young
Young’s voice isn’t just amazingly fresh; the video editing mastery required to arrange this gem makes his cover of “Blank Space” number four on the list.
3. Max Schneider
Max Schneider’s emotionally-driven cover of “Blank Space” steals the third spot on our list.
2. I Prevail Band
IPrevail’s “Blank Space” cover deserves the second spot for being able to maintain the creepy aura of the original that a lot of cover musicians seem to have ditched. IPrevail’s punk metal cover puts the song in another level, adding an apocalyptic twist to the already-eery original.
1. Gabe Bondoc
Gabe Bondoc’s cover of “Blank Space” is probably the chillest version of the song on YouTube right now. Hearing his rendition is incredibly relaxing, and while that is a deviation from the original attitude of the song, Bondoc tops the list simply for having the most pleasant version of the song.
BONUS: Jennifer Lawrence and the rest of the Hunger Games cast
Yes, you’re hearing this right. The cast of Hunger Games visited SNL’s live set to perform their own version of “Blank Space.” Woody Harrelson recently hosted the variety show and had the cast of the hit movie over for his monologue.
