Father John Misty's Cover of Ryan Adam's Cover of Taylor Swift Is Overt

I haven't decided how to categorize Ryan Adam's cover of Taylor Swift's 1989 (I think it was just a straight-up fun thing to do), but Father John Misty's "reinterpretation of the classic Ryan Adams album 1989” is Overt. Spin gives you a listen of the song, which they say features a melody "inspired by Lou Reed’s drawling, disinterested vocal rambling circa the Velvets’ 1967 debut album." I would have rather heard the Pizza Underground's version.

Sorry, not buying it!
