When Avicii passed away on Friday, I did what I often do when a musician dies. I dove into his catalogue of work.
He's got a song called "LE7ELS" that I quite like. It came out in late 2011. Here's that jam.
At the time, my oldest daughter was really into Top 40 music, so I would hear Flo Rida's "Good Feeling" often. Does this sound familiar?
I like that song, too... and upon further reflection, it seems the jam I really dig is Etta James's 1962 single "Something's Got a Hold on Me". Without Etta, I have little interest in "LE7ELS" or "Good Feeling".
