I wouldn't be so upset except they play the first one every 20 minutes on local radio. An I'm not joking!!!!
It sounds like a Dutch person's nightmare after ingesting magic mushrooms and watching Urban Cowboy, or Rhinestone.

I really thought this was a joke the first time I heard it. It's that bad, and by comparison actually makes "Wake Me Up" sound decent. The vocals in this really do not sound like they even go with it and make it sound like a bad mash-up. I'll take Cotton Eye Joe over both anyday. I am kind of amazed by how bad it actually is.

The remixes should improve it if previous efforts are anything to go by.

My biggest complaint is the radio announcer said: Here's the new on by Avicii. Just like on the other, the vocalist is given no credit. I'm positive 95% of Americans think he did the vocals. The other 5 % think Avicii is an Italian scooter or an expensive bath soap.....

OMG.
I wonder if his label anticipated that level of backfire. :hihi:
He can borrow Tiesto's old cowboy hat!

Appropriate comments below.
And here's the piece of utter crap he's released on the radio this week:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C3mYhXl3OMQ

At first I thought, Oh someone's doing a ripoff of that hillbilly Avicii song. But it was Avicii himself. I think, at the end he just got bored and gated the whole song. It's pretty terrible.
(Jus' ma two sens)


The kid catching the rain is super trippy. I don't like this song.

The collaborative song he hosted and put together was a cool idea though, you have to admit. :D

FWIW - Dan Tyminski is one of the most talented bluegrass musicians in the world - he just happens to sing as well. I can't believe he let this be done to one of his songs. I wonder if he had any say in the whole thing? Dan is part of Union Station, Allison Krauss' band. I saw them live probably 7 years ago - the best engineered concert I have ever attended. Huge music hall and the sound was as if hearing the band sitting in your own living room.

Some bright spark thought 'lets make it a bit redneck' (even though the Europeans did it far better 20 years earlier) and it'll sell shitloads.

Which is appropriate, because it IS shit. So, so shit.

Just make the music that you enjoy (failing that go for a walk, watch some porn, have a fight with a random bloke until something else happens).

Threads like this specifically aimed at making fun of an artist kinda stink.

I think Avicii is working hard and actually making music he likes, and making a great living doing it. Hard to find much fault in that.

Personally I don't have super strong feelings about Avicii, other than to say I respect him for being a creator. He's done more with his music than anyone I've seen here.
