I was driving home last weekend when I heard this on the radio. I'd heard it a few times before, but it hadn't stood out. This time the first verse caught my ear:
I took a pill in Ibiza
To show Avicii I was cool
And when I finally got sober, felt 10 years older
But fuck it, it was something to do
That's just sharp lyrical story-telling, not to mention apparently being true.
The original version is a slow acoustic piece I don't entirely care for, but this remix I like. But it's the video I really like this week. It's a simple premise done well: guy takes a pill, sees his own head as a giant paper-mâche creation. What would otherwise be a boring video set in a club becomes this creepy/funny stroll through a long night.
