Taylor Swift Played a Lovely, Stripped-Down Version of “Wildest Dreams”    

The album version of Taylor Swift’s “Wildest Dreams” makes frequent use of voice synthesizers to create its dreamy atmosphere. But in this impressive, stripped-down performance at the Clive Davis Theater, the spotlight is mostly just on Swift’s voice.

Swift performed at the theater in September to celebrate her attendance-record-breaking exhibit at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles. When the vocals pair with Swift’s solemn strumming, “Wildest Dreams” is legitimately haunting.
