Older women in my family have no clue that Taylor Swift decided to butcher Earth, Wind & Fire’s “September.” But if they did pay attention to the internet and social media and cared to make a video of their reactions, it would go something like this:


Alternating between disgust and laughter, the women are the epitome of everyone’s reaction to the song—well, unless you’re part of Swift’s Becky Legion of Doom. But you know who’s to blame? I’m just going to call out the remaining members of Earth, Wind & Fire for allowing this to happen. I guess a check is a check?

Bye, Kinja! It's been fun (occasionally).
