The Weeknd ft. Daft Punk ‘I Feel It Coming’

I have to say this. I hate Valentines Day  

No really I do, for reasons that I do not wish to disclose, even if people do look at my iPod and see I have a bunch of love songs on it, they are, as the old wise man likes to say, are being duped. 

However, on the quest to find one of the so called anti establishment love songs (which as a establishment radio DJ well set in my ways as a avid listener of mainstream radio (hard to do) I found one song that ticks all my boxes:

Establishment artist/artists – yes

Anti love song – certainly yes 

Top 40 hit – oh yeah. 

I’m not talking about a Clean Bandit track (though ‘Tears’ featuring X Factor 2015 winner Louisa Johnson does fall in that category) I am instead, referring to the latest offering from French electronica duo Daft Punk and Canadian Crooner (to quote Toby Antsis from Heart) The Weeknd, fresh of the Number 1 song ‘Starboy’ (the titular track of The Weeknd’s new album) have come up with a new track that will tickle the fancies of even the most mainstream of DJs and radio presenters. 

Now for a confession I am in love with ‘I Feel It Coming’! 

I’ll get into why in a moment, but in case you’ve been living under a rock for the past 2 years, The Weeknd exploded onto the mainstream radio with ‘Earned It’ for the 50 Shades of Grey Soundtrack, which, although the film isn’t my cup of coffee (and the book is questionable in terms of literacy quality) that song 100% fit into the film and it certainly was a precedent for ‘Starboy’ (which is by the way a fantastic track) and one I would certainly play again and again 

Now, the reason why I love ‘I Feel It Coming’ is, not just because it checks my anti establishment but is still worthy of mainstream radio checklist but it’s also the theme of the song, and if I am wrong, please do feel free to correct me.

To me, the song is about a girl/boy who has fallen into a relationship or indeed had a crush on someone and it’s gone south and they have fallen in love/lusting over someone else.  Indeed, this is evident in the bridge to the chorus “you’ve been scared of love and what it did to you” shows how deep it speaks to those that have come out of relationships gone wrong and now they’re ready to fall in love with the right person but scared of plucking up the courage to ask them out.  In fact, I would go as far as to say, the song, if a filmmaker wanted to, he or she could adapt it into a film or indeed include on a soundtrack 

However, I must say, the introduction instrumental does give it a identity crisis in the sense that when I first heard it (on another station) I thought that ‘Starboy’ was about to be played. I was wrong, but to be honest, this is what you get with Daft Punk, a base track. You can just about hear that on ‘Get Lucky’ with Pharrell Williams (of ‘Happy’ fame) and on ‘One More Time’. But either way, it complimented the vocals of The Weeknd, which, I have on good authority is renowned for dark and deep moods in his music. 

It’s certainly a fitting end to the album and it’s almost certainly worth listening to if you’re a establishment DJ that just wants to be that little bit rebellious on Valentines Day. 

One more thing, if anyone does want to debate the literacy worth of the 50 Shades trilogy, feel free to come on air and we can have this discussion. Until then, Sayer out 

Chart achievements: number 7 on the Vodafone Big Top 40.

    Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find
    this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and extremely broad
    for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to
    get the hang of it!
