Not a fan of the beginning on that video that’s why I linked the audio version.

When you said "it’s currently no1", which Chart were you referring to? Somewhere outside the UK, a Download Chart, or something/somewhere else?

It is currently number 4 in the UK Single Chart:

It has, however, been "top of the popular hit parade" in other countries.

He’s had some pretty big hits

Can’t feel my face

The Hills have eyes

Earned it

This new blinding light is my favourite though

I'll take your word for it, too slow for me
Yes I love this song it reminds me of something from the 80s x

To me it sounds like they are going for an 80s sound, but produced by people who were never actually around at the time or old enough to recall what decent music sounded like in the 80s.

Whilst we’re at it, that Bumblebee movie was on Sky the other day, they were going for an 80s feel too - the whole feel and soundtrack was completely off, a complete mishmash, tracks from the early 80s, late 80s and dare I say it 90s too, but looked like it was being filmed in Seaton Carew in 2008, Anyone that’s been there will know what I mean by that. Who the hell is this stuff aimed at?

It’s late but this kind of thing grates on my nerves, unless they’re going to do it properly they need to leave the 80s feel alone.

Yes I said I made a mistake it’s not currently no1 but has been.

The threads discussion was more focused on I really this song, sharing it with others to hopefully enjoy and getting opinions rather than have you heard the current no1.

Sorry it’s a problem to you, it seem very trivial to me after the day I had had, but I will bare in mind in future to do a bit more research before posting.

Nothing gets pass you and your encyclopaedic knowledge of HUKD’s as well as most other things.

I’ve got a lot of admiration for you @fanpages I’m always impressed by your amazing HUKD recall for previous deals & discussions.

I loved music in the 80’s and just feel a bit of nostalgia from this.

I have had so many comments removed, had a suspension for a day, & been threatened with a ban this week from the Administration team, but sorry you have had a bad day.

At least you've got The Weeknd ahead.

Thanks my issues weren’t HUKD’s related.

Yes definitely looking forward to weekend.

I had noticed the suspension icon while you were away as I was scrolling through the John Lewis thread and was quite surprised

Its good to see you back though
I don't like it.

I like a lot of his songs. This is not one of them.

The Official Big Top 40 that you are quoting is compiled from the figures for streaming, downloads, & commercial radio airplay, but this airplay is limited to just the Global Media & Entertainment Radio/Digital network (Capital, Capital XTRA, Classic FM, Gold, Heart, LBC, LBC News, Radio X, Smooth, & various digital-only stations). Hence, this is why, if you listen to Capital, you are hearing a different Top 40 to the rest of the UK.

The Official Singles Chart (that the rest of the UK industry uses) is compiled from physical sales, (paid-for) downloads, & streaming across the UK.

To date, Weeknd's "Blinding Lights" has never been at the top of the Official Singles Chart. It has only reached number 4.
They didn't have autotune in the 80s.
