In my opinion Avicii‘s “Wake Me Up” is the best song of the summer. I said it. Whether you like Hip-Hop, R&B, Pop, House, this song is just over all great.

The Swedish DJ blended folk music with EDM and added relatable lyrics, sung by Aloe Blacc, to create such a perfect blend of nostalgia, melancholia and hope. Aloe Blacc (who shutdown charts globally with “I Need A Dollar,” which was featured on HBO’s short-lived show, How To Make It In America) sings his heart out in this track.
