Song of the Day #1935

Song of the Day: Take My Breath features the words and music of a host of writers, including The Weeknd, whose music I’m highlighting this weekend. This song has a throwback 80s feel, and there’s no doubt that the Weeknd, like so many others in his generation, has been deeply influenced by one of that decade’s most important artists: Michael Jackson. Remixers have even done mashups of their tracks [YouTube link]. Even this track gets an MJ-Weeknd mashup [YouTube link]. Check out the quasi-autoerotic official video and an extended club remix [YouTube links].
