This morning, Ryan Adams' 1989 covers album went online. The response to his take on Taylor Swift's LP were, to say the least, mixed.
Some felt that it was the unexpected, but hugely welcome, meeting of two very different musical minds. Others felt exasperated by the idea that pop must be legitimised by male rock musicians before it's deemed acceptable to enjoy.
Whichever argument may be more compelling, the whole thing got us thinking - who else would we like to see take on an entire album that's a completely different genre to their own? Arctic Monkeys covering Girls Aloud's Sound Of The Underground, for example. Or Sufjan Stevens tackling Miley Cyrus' Bangerz.
Here's what we'd like to see next.
