There are so many good songs about Cocaine! In all honesty I have never used cocaine and probably never will, but my god it's inspired some of the greatest bands and songs of the last 60 years.
Think Casey Jones, Grateful Dead...Think Cocaine Blues, Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash...Think pretty much the entire Rolling Stone's Sticky Fingers album...and now you can think of The Weeknd's Can't Feel My Face!
The Weeknd has never shied away from explicit drug jargon, but this is song is subtle and clever, playing with metaphor and symbolism, which is oddly ok when mixed with 80's Michael Jackson inspired dance rhythms.
I love this song. I love the Weeknd. I love Canada, but I love to feel my face.
Just say no Kids!
