Avicii‘s most widely recognized single just turned 8 years old — so it’s time to wish “Levels” a happy birthday!
No EDM single in history projects nostalgia quite the way “Levels” does. From the opening pads through the distinct, feel-good melody, down to the iconic sample from Etta James‘ 1962 single, “Something’s Got a Hold on Me” — this song is the ultimate vibe.
“Levels” launched Avicii into superstardom, earning No. 1 spots on dance charts in the US, UK and beyond. It went on to be famously remixed by Skrillex and the song remains in his signature set to this day.
Of course, “Levels” plays out much more bittersweet these days. Avicii left this world behind suddenly on April 20, 2018, but his legacy lives on through his music.
Oh, sometimes I get a good feeling, yeah
Get a feeling that I never, never, never, never had before, no, no
I get a good feeling, yeah
Blast this one out today, loudly!
