When the day that Taylor Swift was brought into this world arrives, what do you do? What do you get for the girl that has everything? Well, if you are Brett Young, you go back into your past and find a video of yourself covering one of Taylor’s hits.
That’s just what the young singer did to celebrate Taylor’s 28th year of life. He took to Twitter to post a video of himself singing Taylor’s hit “Begin Again,” featured on her Red album.
“On a Wednesday, in a café…I wished @TaylorSwift13 a Happy Birthday! Digging into the archives today for this one,” Brett wrote. He only had to go back five years to find the 2012 video, and it holds up pretty well.
Brett’s gravely voice meshes well with lyrics like, “And you throw your head back laughing like a little kid / I think it’s strange that you think I’m funny ’cause he never did / I’ve been spending the last eight months / Thinking all love ever does is break and burn and end / But on a Wednesday in a cafe I watched it begin again.”
This one’s for you Taylor. Happy Birthday!
And here is Taylor’s version of “Begin Again.”
