SONG OF THE DAY: Avicii ft Salem Al Fakir – “You Make Me”
Following up the international smash “Wake Me Up,” Avicii has changed the vibe for “You Make Me.” Rather than channeling country and bluegrass, the influence seems to be ’70s rock with a bit of added piano for effect. It feels similar to Capital Cities “Safe and Sound,” with a bit more of an electro vibe and synth hooks that could have been interpolated from “Wake Me Up.” Since it feels kind of familiar, it may not grab you instantly, but after a few listens, the hooks really hit earworm territory. The roller rink battle video is good, cheesy fun showing that not everything is serious in Avicii-land – with the same kind of camp humor found in the “I Could Be The One” clip, but with a much happier ending.
