Swedish DJ and musician Avicii passed away on Friday at the age of 28. While his name was only directly associated with a few songs, he was instrumental in making the music industry sound how it does today.
Here are some of the songs that he became famous for:
WAKE ME UP
This song was number 1 on my Song of the Year list for 2013 before I started this site…
They tell me I’m too young to understand
They say I’m caught up in a dream
Well life will pass me by if I don’t open up my eyes
Well that’s fine by me
What if I’m far from home?
Oh brother, I will hear you call!
What if I lose it all?
Oh sister, I will help you out!
Oh, if the sky comes falling down
For you, there’s nothing in this world I wouldn’t do
This song featured some of the sounds from Flo Rida’s “Good Feelin, which he helped create.
Oh, sometimes I get a good feeling, yeah
Get a feeling that I never, never, never, never had before, no no
I get a good feeling, yeah
