The Weeknd – Blinding Lights

 

β™¬πŸŽ΅
This is one of the songs of the moment and it is also one of my favorites: it reminds me of a sound close to that of the 80s.

On December 2, 2019, a commercial video containing footage from a Tesfaye and Mercedes-Benz commercial and the song’s audio video was released. The lyric video for “Blinding Lights” was released on December 6, 2019. Its official music video was shot in Fremont Street, Las Vegas and was released on January 21, 2020. The visual follows the events of the music video for “Heartless” and sees The Weeknd go on a hallucinated joyride through Las Vegas after waking from a trance. It concludes with Tesfaye having flashbacks to a club he attended earlier in the night, where he was serenaded by a mysterious woman, played by Japanese actress Miki Hamano and beat up by a duo of men that forced him to be on the run throughout the video. The video was directed by Anton Tammi, with various actions performed by the singer in the visual being inspired by the films Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Joker, and Casino.

 

LYRIC

Yeah
I been tryna call
I been on my own for long enough
Maybe you can show me how to love, maybe
I’m going through withdrawals
You don’t even have to do too much
You can turn me on with just a touch, baby
I look around and Sin City’s cold and empty (oh)
No one’s around to judge me (oh)
I can’t see clearly when you’re gone
I said, ooh, I’m blinded by the lights
No, I can’t sleep until I feel your touch
I said, ooh, I’m drowning in the night
Oh, when I’m like this, you’re the one I trust
Hey, hey, hey
I’m running out of time
‘Cause I can see the sun light up the sky
So I hit the road in overdrive, baby
Oh, the city’s cold and empty (oh)
No one’s around to judge me (oh)
I can’t see clearly when you’re gone
I said, ooh, I’m blinded by the lights
No, I can’t sleep until I feel your touch
I said, ooh, I’m drowning in the night
Oh, when I’m like this, you’re the one I trust
I’m just walking by to let you know (by to let you know)
I can never say it on the phone (say it on the phone)
Will never let you go this time (ooh)
I said, ooh, I’m blinded by the lights
No, I can’t sleep until I feel your touch
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
I said, ooh, I’m blinded by the lights
No, I can’t sleep until I feel your touch
