30-Day Song Challenge: Day 25

“There’s always haters, no matter what you’re doing. Whether they’re complaining that everything you do sounds the same, or it’s too different. I love DJing, I do. I love everything that comes with it; it’s fun and it’s kind of glamorous. I’m a DJ. I get the party started.”

Avicii

Merry Christmas to my blogging family! Hope you are enjoying your day! Thank you for joining me on my blogging journey! Taking a breath of air before I return to more festivities with family and friends! Nothing like the gift of the present! Today’s challenge is to post a song you like by an artist no longer living! I think about how the love of Jesus Christ has influenced many musicians in unexpected ways.

Clifford Stumme, the Pop Song Professor, explores more about the meaning and background behind the song I’m about to share, “Sunset Jesus”:

“…he [Avicii] meets “Sunset Jesus,” an interesting character dressed as Jesus who spends his time on Sunset Blvd with street performers and tourists…. the fact that Jesus came to him could also be a “sign”–a mystical symbol that Avicii’s in the right place. He decides that it’s a good thing he met Sunset Jesus.”

I LOVE YOU AVICII (Tim Bergling)!!! 😀 I danced to your music at pool parties while hanging out with friends. You left a legacy in the EDM music industry. I will miss your incredible spirit and will continue to love your inspirational melodies and beats! You were an awesome DJ! The crowds you draw at every concert is a formidable accomplishment. Rest in peace! ❤

    We used to play a game like this on Facebook. It was fun but they changed everything.

      This song challenge introduced me to all sorts of music this month! Other bloggers shared music from their lives I’ve never heard of. Ear-opening experiece!😄

      🤷‍♀️💥❤🤣 I was just doing that, and my roommates asked me what I was listening to! Headphones help us get along with each other! 😆

        ‘Ear-opening experience!’ – Cute! 😉

        I could see you bopping along and dancing in ‘silence’ 🙂

        I remember before I-pads and smart phones were invented lying down on the shared lounge room floor plugged into my 4 piece Hi-Fi system (plus 2 speakers) listening to my vinyl collection of 70’s and 80’s music and the recently released CD’s on the headphones so as to not annoy the roomies! 🙂
