Hommage to Avicii, whom lighted up my summers

Avicii passed away at the age of 28 in Muscat, Oman.

Avicii “Wake me up” song gave me a sweet and sour taste during my ride to work this morning.

One of my friend from home visited yesterday and gave me the sad news.

The renowned DJ Avicii, born Tim Bergling, passed away on the 20th of April at the age of 28, leaving his family, her girlfriend, her son and his fans with a huge heart pain.

Myself, I felt really sad and confused. Why? What happened? He was so young and successful!! With some research, I got to know that he took his own life in his hotel room with a sharp glass.

His parents said that he was a “fragile artistic soul and a sensitive guy not made for the machinery he ended up in”. He was mentally unwell and decided to stop touring in 2016.

Sweet memories.

I remember when I was living France, in summer 2015. I used to live in a beach town called Les Sables d’Olonne during my studies. I had a one bedroom apartment and always had friends over. In that summer holidays, we would wake up late, open wide the windows and play music video clips on the TV while getting ready to go to the beach. Avicii’s music was our top songs. We would play it in my pink Suzuki and sing wrong the lyrics in our french accent.

I would like to say thank you Avicii for being a part of those memories. I hope you found peace in The Afterworld.
