I’ve been watching you, you’ve been hurting too
You give all your love, nothing left to show
I have been there too, alone in my despair
Watching life go by, no one whom to share
Boy you got it bad, but I got something good.
Why I Love It: This song was quite likely the first, “EDM” song I had heard, and most definitely the first work I had heard from Avicci (although I heard the instrumental version of this which highly accentuated Avicci’s then iconic and trademarked riser.) The riser is a huge part of my love for this track, but more so the memories attached to the song itself. I loved Avicii’s sound when he came out as it was so unique before becoming commercialised, and although I had somewhat lost interest in his sound a year or two later, I still had the chance to see the man himself perform in 2012 where I didn’t give one single fuck and partied the night away. I guess that’s what I love and at the end of the day and what it was all about, not giving one single fuck. So this is my ode to Avicii, my thank you note for giving me that pure moment of not giving one single fuck and enjoying my time in the present. Thank you, Tim Bergling, RIP.
