Taylor Swift - Wildest Dreams

About "Wildest Dreams"

"Wildest Dreams" is a song by the American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift and the fifth single from her fifth studio album, 1989 (2014). She wrote the song with its producers Max Martin and Shellback. "Wildest Dreams" has an atmospheric balladic production incorporating programmed drums, Mellotron-simulated and live strings, and synths; the rhythm interpolates Swift's heartbeat. Music critics described it as synth-pop, dream pop, and electropop. In the lyrics, Swift pleads with a lover to remember her even after their relationship ends. Big Machine in partnership with Republic Records released "Wildest Dreams" to radio on August 31, 2015.

When it was first released, some critics found the production and Swift's vocals alluring but others found the track derivative, comparing it to the music of Lana Del Rey. Retrospectively, critics have considered "Wildest Dreams" one of Swift's most memorable songs. The single peaked within the top five on charts of Australia, Canada, Poland, and South Africa. It was certified eight-times platinum in Australia and platinum in Canada, Portugal, and the United Kingdom. In the United States, "Wildest Dreams" peaked at number five and became 1989's fifth consecutive top-ten single on the Billboard Hot 100; it peaked atop three of Billboard's airplay charts. The Recording Industry Association of America certified the track four-times platinum.

Joseph Kahn directed the music video for "Wildest Dreams". Set in 1950s Africa, it depicts Swift as a classical Hollywood actress who falls in love with her co-star but ends the fling upon completion of their film project. Media publications praised the production as cinematic but accused the video of glorifying colonialism, a claim that Kahn dismissed. Swift included "Wildest Dreams" in the set lists for two of her world tours: the 1989 World Tour (2015) and the Eras Tour (2023–2024). Following the dispute regarding the ownership of Swift's masters in 2019 and the viral popularity of "Wildest Dreams" on the social media site TikTok in 2021, Swift released the re-recorded version "Wildest Dreams (Taylor's Version)" on September 17, 2021.
