Tre capolavori ‘a caso’ di Avicii

Sappiamo che non era necessario, ma Google con il suo Doodle di oggi 8 settembre ha deciso lo stesso di omaggiare Avicii, ovvero Tim Bergling, che avrebbe fatto 32 anni.

Non era necessario perché per la generazione di millennial che lo ha visto nascere, crescere e morire come artista e come essere umano, Avicii era molto di più di un semplice dj o produttore di musica.

Lo svedese era, è e resterà catalogato per sempre nei ricordi di chi ha sognato altre galassie con le sue melodie come un mito. E, purtroppo, la sua morte improvvisa non ha fatto altro che rafforzare questa convinzione. Dei miti, poi, si ricorda tutto: anniversari, creazioni, carisma.

Avicii.com (foto in copertina), per esempio, è una sorta di muro del pianto dove i fan di Tim lasciano scritto il loro pensiero, la loro emozione. Per ricordarlo alla sua maniera, però, niente di meglio che riascoltare alcune delle sue creature. Vette altissime, da vera rockstar, allora e oggi. E non si fa solo per dire.

1. Avicii – Wake Me Up (Official Video)

Testo di Wake Me Up di Avicii

Feeling my way through the darkness
Guided by a beating heart
I can’t tell where the journey will end
But I know where to start
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

So wake me up when it’s all over
When I’m wiser and I’m older
All this time I was finding myself, and I
Didn’t know I was lost

So wake me up when it’s all over
When I’m wiser and I’m older
All this time I was finding myself, and I
Didn’t know I was lost

I tried carrying the weight of the world
But I only have two hands
Hope I get the chance to travel the world
But I don’t have any plans
Wish that I could stay forever this young
Not afraid to close my eyes
Life’s a game made for everyone
And love is a prize

So wake me up when it’s all over
When I’m wiser and I’m older
All this time I was finding myself, and I
Didn’t know I was lost

So wake me up when it’s all over
When I’m wiser and I’m older
All this time I was finding myself, and I
I didn’t know I was lost

I didn’t know I was lost
I didn’t know I was lost
I didn’t know I was lost
I didn’t know

3. Avicii – Waiting For Love. Video

 

Testo di Waiting For Love di Avicii

Where there’s a will, there’s a way, kind of beautiful
And every night has its day, so magical
And if there’s love in this life, there’s no obstacle
That can’t be defeated

For every tyrant, a tear for the vulnerable
In every lost soul, the bones of a miracle
For every dreamer, a dream, we’re unstoppable
With something to believe in

Monday left me broken
Tuesday, I was through with hoping
Wednesday, my empty arms were open
Thursday, waiting for love, waiting for love

Thank the stars it’s Friday
I’m burning like a fire gone wild on Saturday
Guess I won’t be coming to church on Sunday
I’ll be waiting for love, waiting for love to come around

We are one of a kind, irreplaceable
How did I get so blind and so cynical?
If there’s love in this life, we’re unstoppable
No, we can’t be defeated

Monday left me broken
Tuesday, I was through with hoping
Wednesday, my empty arms were open
Thursday, waiting for love, waiting for love

Thank the stars it’s Friday
I’m burning like a fire gone wild on Saturday
Guess I won’t be coming to church on Sunday
I’ll be waiting for love, waiting for love to come around
