Best 80s song since the 80s? The Weeknd - Blinding Lights (Official Instrumental)
Sick of autotune? Fine. Here's the instrumental version. This is the best 80s song since the 80s in my opinion.

Please give me a real 80s pop song that you think is better than "Blinding Lights." That would have been probably a top 50 pop song of the entire 80s in my opinion.

I chose a random song by them from the 80s. "Gusto Blusto"

It's so uncreative, boring, and trite. Musically it's cookie cutter. This was a single, and it sounds like a filler song. It's a lot less than a filler song by a great 80s band like INXS. I don't find it enjoyable or memorable at all.

Since it's supposed to be an 80s retro song, it's supposed to be derivative.

"Blinding Lights" is much better than "Take on Me." I am shocked by that comparison.

There are similarities. It's supposed to be that way since "Blinding Lights" is a retro 80s song.

However, calling "Blinding Lights" a ripoff of this? The quality of production and instrumentation and the complexity in "Blinding Lights" are way ahead of this.

This is what a filler song by a great 80s band sounds like. Filler song then but much better than most of what's released today.

I know objective facts don't matter around here when it comes to music, but I will pass these along.

"Blinding Lights" peaked at number one on the Canadian Hot 100, giving The Weeknd his fifth number-one hit on the chart. Elsewhere, the song has topped the Billboard Global 200 and peaked at number two on Global Excl. U.S.. In the United States, the song topped the Hot 100 for four weeks, and went to become the song with most weeks spent in the top 5, top 10, top 20 and top 40 on the chart, as well as the first song to hold a spot in the top 10 on the chart for an entire year.[7][8] The song finished 2020 as the year's top Billboard Hot 100 song.[9] It has also topped the record charts in the United Kingdom and 31 other countries.

The Weeknd's most successful single worldwide to date,[10][11] "Blinding Lights" was the best-performing global single of 2020, earning 2.72 billion subscription stream equivalents globally according to the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI).[12] It was also Spotify's most streamed song of 2020 with nearly 1.6 billion streams[13] and is the 2nd most streamed song of all time on the platform, being the fastest song in history to reach the milestone of 2 billion streams on Spotify.[14] "Blinding Lights" has three official remixes: one by electronic band Chromatics, one by electronic dance music group Major Lazer, and one featuring singer-songwriter Rosalía.[15][16][17]
