My opinion on....the death of Avicii.


     This week some terrible news struck the world. Beloved and famed Swedish musician, Tim Bergling, better known by his stage name, Avicii, passed away on April 20th, 2018. As far as I know they released no info to the cause of his death, but there is speculation that his death was related to his acute pancreatitis, which was due to heavy drinking of alcohol. 

     Personally, my favorite Avicii songs were "Levels", "Hey Brother," "The Nights," and "Waiting for Love," and my favorite "Wake Me Up." The lyrics in both "Hey Brother" and "Wake Me Up" are exceptionally moving, and the corresponding Youtube music videos are also well produced. 

     Since the last few years, I'm not sure any other celebrity death hit me harder than Avicii's. Mostly due to a personal connection I made with him in my lifetime. I remember listening to his songs come up on Pandora while I played Runescape in my teenage years. Rest in peace Avicii, you will be missed greatly.
