Taylor Performs "Wildest Dreams" at The GRAMMY Museum

This version is my favourite by far. I always saw Wildest Dreams as an attempt to do a poppier Lana del Rey song.

Nobody who has a taste in music will prefer this Wildest Dreams over the original.
The arrangement and sound are so plain and harsh. It doesn't feel nostalgic, lovely, warm, lanadelreyish etc.

This version is my favourite by far. I always saw Wildest Dreams as an attempt to do a poppier Lana del Rey song.

I think she's been quoted saying LDR was an inspo behind the song?

I remember around this time in 2014 when I first listened to Wildest Dreams walking through the park in Brooklyn, right when 1989 came out. The changing Autumn leaves, cool weather, and first hearing tthe layered vocals and euphoric melody of the song. Such a strong sensory association.

Out of all versions, I actually prefer the radio mix with the stronger percussion and drums. Feels more epic.

Lana should record Wildest Dreams. Win win.
