Woke up in the morning and got stunned, hearing his mourning. Every single throwback song reminds me of what I’ve felt, smelled & thought at that time, and his songs recall my high school days.
Let me talk about tb stuff. It all starts far from Avicii, though. For my dream, I made a tough decision to commute to school for 1 hr and half. My iPod was vital for me getting packed in a train everyday. Bad at playing instruments, though, I loved to motivate myself, listening to various kinds of songs. Sharing my jams, mainly hiphop, with my homie @akarigocho was such a great memory 😏 but some ppl asked me like “hey Tim why do you listen to black ppl’s music? You’re yellow. You’re a Japanese.” Sad at first, but I didn’t care anymore. Everybody has a different opinion and that’s why this world is so diverse. So, I just followed what I love. Maybe some of them would yell at me for sneaking in other cultures and stuff, but I believe music is universal and I appreciate it captivating me. It doesn’t seem to be related but that’s what I first recalled.
Preparing myself for school with billboard rankings on YouTube was my habit. Then I found a song very attractive. Yea that was Avicii’s ‘Wake Me Up’. Added my playlist and then ppl around me like “who the f*ck is Avicii? What the f*ck is EDM?” Imagine going out to a club out there, and jumping & dancing to music all night long; that’s EDM. Lol
Anyways, he showed me the way he was. Showed me his love, dedication and patience for what he love. Though what we’re desiring is super different, he’s shown the way through his music. So honored to have added him on my playlist beside to my fav rappers. 😉
Hey, brother, Tim (aka my bro), as a person of the same name, I’m sure 28 yrs are too short for you, especially such a talented one. I really admire you Tim. I’d be the luckiest if I live and die for what I love, like you. Thank you so much for every music & everything you’ve done for me in my hs days. Tbh those days were as tough as walking into a thorny path but they literally made me stronger. We’ll be missing you so bad, Tim. R.I.P. @avicii ,the greatest DJ/producer of all time 🙏🏾🇸🇪❤️
