This "1989" Mashup Turns The Whole Album Into One Great Song

When it comes to Taylor Swift songs, the internet is the gift that keeps on giving.
You'd think by now we'd be fed up of 1989; we've been up to our necks in Taylor Swift covers and "Shake It Off" dances since the album came out in October.
But the internet just keeps on surprising us with cool new takes on the album; for example, this excellent version that YouTube-based duo Sam Tsui and Kurt Schneider teamed up to create. Is it a cover? Is it a medley? Is it a mashup? It's all three, and it's an incredible acoustic blend that we're going to be listening to all day.
I mean seriously, it's weird how well this works. The lyrics from FOUR different and separate songs from the album mashed together actually make sense as their own song:
Excellent work guys. "Shake It Off" might be nominated for three Grammys, but you deserve one for sheer musical engineering.
