Check this out: it's a french disco song from 1977.

Any similarities?  ;D

omg it practically samples this! did you find this on your own, or someone else posted it? The similarities are glaring. It's even in the same key!

This is Lenny Kravitz' "The Chamber", Disclosure's "Nocturnal" (feat. The Weeknd), "Blinding Lights" and Berlin's "Take My Breath Away" (obviously) thrown into one song - and it is amazing!
However it might not become as big as "Blinding Lights". And to go even further, without the success of "Blinding Lights" this song wouldn't receive that much acceptance.

Edit: And apparently there's a huge portion of Cerrone's "Supernature" interpolated.

Cool they Elvira did background vocals on this. Hopefully we get the stems one day so we can hear her part / the song layers in general. The vocoder is less prominent but it’s still there

The Rhode keys have a similar feel to pink's hey why (miss you sometime), I love it, I didn't fully catch it on the first listen, but now I'm obsessed.

this song was on its way to classic status until i heard the hook. how you gonna have your lead single riding off THIS come on now

the vocoder in the bridge is serving thinking of you/international smile teas... that jawn fr brought the track all the way back from the dead

the giorgio moroder type beat is excellent and accurate. its my head canon that shellback literally fixed everything that was wrong with the drum samples on BL and SYT so that oscar could lay down this heat

I like the instrumental more than the song itself.
