SLS – Hey

Just before you scroll down to see which song I have picked, I want to mention that I know that first video looks like it is going to be super-scary, but it is ok, I promise you. The video starts with him looking as if he is a mad man and all that red blood around his mouth looks way creepy…but as you may know the rest of the video is quite a work of cinematography, which won awards. But in case you want to skip the video, take a peek at the amazing performance at the 2020 MTV Awards!

Jim picked the theme including the greeting “Hey“, so when I was going through some options I noticed that The Weeknd was included. His single “Blinding Lights” was just about the biggest international single of 2020. It was huge. To me it is so totally eighties. I really thought it had to be a cover the first time I heard it.

The writing team for this track was Ehe Weeknd, Ahmad Balshe, Jason Quenneville, Max Martin and Oscar Holter

Yeah

I’ve been tryna call
I’ve 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

My coworker is in love with The Weeknd, she was sitting down during lunchtime to watch the Halftime Super Bowl Show (Super Bowl always happens here in Japan during the morning on Monday) and she was jamming to it. He has so many great songs that are catchy and upbeat, like this one!
