Throwback Thursday ‘Out of the Woods’ by Taylor Swift (2016)
Pandemic Inspired Throwback Thursday continues with "Out of the Woods" by Taylor Swift.
I was reminded of this song thanks to our governor, Kristi Noem. In her Public Service Announcement (PSA) that I've seen/heard approximately 89,752,135,429,651 times, she says South Dakota is 'not out of the woods yet.'
"Out of the Woods" by Taylor Swift was off of her album, 1989.
"Out of the Woods" was technically the sixth single from 1989.
The music video for "Out of the Woods" premiered on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin Eve, December 31, 2015. The music video was directed by Joseph Kahn. Taylor and Kahn had worked together previously on music videos for "Blank Space", "Bad Blood" and "Wildest Dreams".
If I was a bigger Swifty, I'd tell you all the Easter eggs and hints at the alleged ex (Harry Styles) that the song is about, but I'm not. You can click here for all that info.
According to Wikipedia, "On the Billboard Hot 100 chart, the song debuted and peaked at number 18. It became Swift's 61st song to enter the Hot 100, making her the female artist to have the second most charted songs on the Hot 100, behind Aretha Franklin (73)."
"Out of the Woods" helped Taylor break records. The song debuted at #1 on the Hot Digital Songs chart, selling 195,000 copies and displacing "Shake It Off" from the top spot. Taylor Swift did the same thing back in 2012 when "Ronan" and "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" occupied the top two spots! This made her the first solo artist to do this twice!
