Taylor Swift Covers Phil Collins at BBC Live Lounge: Listen

Taylor Swift takes on Phil Collins’ ‘Can’t Stop Loving You’ for Radio 1’s Live Lounge Taylor Swift takes on Phil Collins’ ‘Can’t Stop Loving You’ for Radio 1’s Live Lounge

Taylor Swift pulled out some surprises during her recent BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge performance in New York.

Swift's six-song set, which premiered Monday (Sept. 2), included four songs from her new album, Lover ("London Boy," "Lover," "The Archer" and "You Need To Calm Down"), the Red track "Holy Ground," and a cover of Phil Collins' 2002 song "Can’t Stop Loving You."

"I really love exploring all different types of love, especially on this album. And the type of love that is addressed in this song is unconditional love," Swift said of her decision to cover Collins' song.

"People say ‘unconditional love’ all the time, but I don’t think they really know that unconditional love truly is still loving someone even if they don’t love you anymore. That’s like the saddest thing ever, but would you love someone even if they said, ‘I don’t want to be with you anymore, I don’t love you anymore’? Would you still have that love for them?"

    The song is from Leo Sayer (1978) it was covered by Phil Collins.
    Taylor thinks its Phil's song because probably she first heard his version.

    All well and lovely, but this song was written by Billy Nicholls and originally performed (i think, anyway) by Leo Sayer in the late 70's. So....not Phil's song at all - he only did a cover (as did various other people.)
