"Blinding Lights" is a song by Canadian musician The Weeknd, released in 2019 as the lead single for his fourth studio album "After Hours". The song was written by The Weeknd and its producers Max Martin, Oscar Holter and Ahmad Balshe. It is an uptempo synth-pop and electropop song with 1980s-inspired instrumentation and a catchy hook.
The song has a simple chord progression, using just four chords: C major, A minor, F major, and G major. The chord progression is repeated throughout the song, with the exception of the bridge, which changes to A minor, E major, and D major.
To play "Blinding Lights" on the piano, start by playing the C major chord with your right hand, using the notes C, E, and G. Play the A minor chord with your left hand, using the notes A, C, and E. Then, switch to the F major chord with your right hand (F, A, C) and the G major chord with your left hand (G, B, D). Repeat this pattern throughout the verse and chorus of the song.
The PIANOHOLIC piano instrumental version of "Blinding Lights" adds another dimension to the original song by focusing on the melody and harmonies, rather than the lyrics and vocals. The piano arrangement highlights the catchy hook and the emotive qualities of the music, and allows the listener to focus on the musical elements of the song. The addition of a piano also gives the song a more intimate and stripped-down feel, making it a great choice for a solo performance or a relaxed setting.
