Taylor Swift + The Jackson 5 = “Never Want You Back”
Taylor Swift and The Jackson 5 rarely get mentioned together, but a new mashup has combined the talents of both artists in one track. Comedian Dan Chamberlain has taken Swift’s monster breakup song “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” and mashed it together with “I Want You Back” by the Jackson 5.
The song may take on extra relevance if the news that Swift has broken up with Harry Styles (of boy band One Direction) is true. Even though the songs are lyrically different, Taylor’s “Oooh-oooh-ooh-ooh-oooh”s fit nicely as backing vocals to Jackson’s melody. You can head over to Dan’s Tumblr page to hear the song.
If a mashup of Jackson 5 and Taylor Swift isn’t your thing, check out this mashup of Genesis’ “Invisible Touch” and Katy Perry’s “California Gurls” called “Invisible Gurls.”
