Subject: Why Was Blinding Lights So Popular?

Written By: Slim95 on 05/21/22 at 2:17 am

Is it because of the pandemic? I remember when I first heard this song around late 2019/early 2020, I didn't think it would be such a big hit. I thought it would be one of those songs that may be popular for a few weeks then just drop from the charts.

I was VERY wrong since this song broke records on the Billboard hot 100. It has been on the Billboard charts for two years straight. It was the number 1 song of 2020. It was also in the top 10 for 2021 as well. This song was extremely popular and broke countless records. My question is why? Why was this song so popular? I like it. But I wonder why it became so big. Was it because of COVID?
