Song of the Day #2,542: ‘Bad Blood’ – Macy Kate & Ben Kheng

bad_blood_kurt_schneiderI haven’t checked in with the multi-talented Kurt Schneider in awhile, but recently his latest one-take pop song cover found its way to my inbox.

In this clip, Kurt directs Macy Kate and Ben Kheng as they lip-sync their own version of Taylor Swift’s ‘Bad Blood’ while traversing two floors of a Singapore hotel. It’s most impressive how the three of them pop in and out of the frame through some fancy footwork.

Schneider plays a dozen instruments, sings, directs very cool music videos and was even a championship chess player as a kid. He graduated from Yale with a degree in mathematics. The man seemingly has no weaknesses. Maybe he’s bad at sports.

The blandly pretty people he puts in his videos are usually talented in their own right, but he’s the real star here even though he doesn’t sing a single note.

[Chorus]
Cause baby, now we’ve got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look what you’ve done
Cause baby, now we’ve got bad blood, hey!
Now we’ve got problems
And I don’t think we can solve ’em
You made a really deep cut
And baby, now we’ve got bad blood, hey!

[Verse 1]
Did you have to do this?
I was thinking that you could be trusted
Did you have to ruin what was shiny?
Now it’s all rusted
Did you have to hit me where I’m weak?
Baby, I couldn’t breathe
And rub it in so deep
Salt in the wound like you’re laughing right at me

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh, it’s so sad to
Think about the good times
You and I

[Chorus]
Cause baby, now we’ve got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look what you’ve done
Cause baby, now we’ve got bad blood, hey!
Now we’ve got problems
And I don’t think we can solve ’em
You made a really deep cut
And baby, now we’ve got bad blood, hey!

[Verse 2]
Did you think we’d be fine?
Still got scars in my back from your knives
So don’t think it’s in the past
These kind of wounds they last and they last
Now, did you think it all through?
All these things will catch up to you
And time can heal, but this won’t
So if you come in my way
Just don’t

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh, it’s so sad to
Think about the good times
You and I

[Chorus]
Cause baby, now we’ve got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look what you’ve done
Cause baby, now we’ve got bad blood, hey!
Now we’ve got problems
And I don’t think we can solve ’em
You made a really deep cut
And baby, now we’ve got bad blood, hey!

[Bridge]
Band-aids don’t fix bullet holes
You say sorry just for show
You live like that, you live with ghosts
Band-aids don’t fix bullet holes
You say sorry just for show
If you live like that, you live with ghosts
If you love like that, blood runs cold!

[Chorus]
Cause baby, now we’ve got bad blood
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look what you’ve done
Cause baby, now we’ve got bad blood, hey!
Now we’ve got problems
And I don’t think we can solve ’em
You made a really deep cut
And baby, now we’ve got bad blood, hey!

    The guy makes a cool video, and actually not a bad cover of a song I don’t particularly like.
