This tropical cover of ‘Shake It Off’ is the best one yet
Sink your toes in the sand enjoy this tropical cover of “Shake It Off” thanks to Walk off the Earth.
No matter how hard the Internet has tried to “Shake It Off,” Taylor Swift’s latest pop anthem and the horrid puns it has elicited won’t seem to go away (see: above). The song has spawned everything from a dance-off between Swift and Groot to a whole slew of student-athlete dance parodies. But let’s leave the soulful Postmodern Jukebox cover and bizzaro 19-minute slowed down version of the song behind and just relax on the beach with a no frills cover thanks to Walk Off the Earth.
The YouTube sensations, who have made their mark on the Web with kitschy covers including Goyte’s “Somebody That I Used to Know,” decided to take Swift’s “Shake It Off” to the beach and give it a tropical tinge. With the help of surprising percussion and a few flying instruments, the group’s cover might not pack the same pop punch as Swift, but it’s all the more soothing because of it.
Crack open an ice cold Corona and relax, because with this cover we’ve just found the millennial answer to Jimmy Buffet.
