Why do I think that this version of “Out of the Woods” is better than the original? For starters, stripping away the techno and the effects allows the focus to be on the lyrics themselves, and the simple, beautiful piano matches the tone of the lyrics perfectly.
Now, I’m positive there are many who will continue loving the original version the best. For me, though, this is the first time I felt connected to this particular song, and her short speech in the beginning about relationship and anxiety might have had a part in that as well.
I felt the emotion behind her performance, and it made me feel those emotions as well, as any good song should.
Whether or not you agree with my personal thoughts, I hope you can enjoy the above video for simply being a solid performance.
