Kurt Hugo Schneider Covers Taylor Swift's '22' With Alex Goot, Sam Tsui, Chrissy Costanza And King The Kid (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Original Song: "22" by Taylor Swift

Cover Artist: Music producer and filmmaker Kurt Hugo Schneider with Alex Goot, Sam Tsui, Chrissy Costanza and King the Kid

How It's Different: Schneider and company have taken T-Swift's feel-good-lovin'-life anthem and have kicked it up an extra notch, adding more voices into the mix, along with electric guitars. Like Swift's original, it starts off familiar with Alex playing an acoustic guitar but then progressively becomes more rock 'n' roll throughout the song.

Why We Love It: Swifties still riding the "22" wave will no doubt like this single with a twist -- just try and keep from bopping your head along. We also dig the music video itself, which follows Chrissy (wearing hipster frames à la T-Swift) bouncing from room to room of what appears to be a studio, while taking selfies with a camera.

Better than the Original? Nah. While Schneider's version is cool, no one encapsulates what it means to be "22" quite like T-Swift herself.
