The Nights

By The Road To: Music Comments

"He said, ‘One day you'll leave this world behind
So live a life you will remember.'
My father told me when I was just a child
These are the nights that never die
My father told me."
Avicii – "The Nights"

"When I die I want to be remembered for the life I lived not the money I made." This is how Avicii chooses to open the lately released video clip for his song "The Nights." We often confuse our definition of success and goals in life with the ultimate measurable parameter of money. Not that money is not important, don’t get me wrong, but  money as a standalone objective is not, it would seem, the governing factor for happiness. Whether you will be remembered or not is a question in and of itself, but I believe in living life for the sake of it—each of us and our own interpretation—and not for the sake of making money. Material resources are a perfect means by which to live life to the full, but actually doing so is related more to your mindset and purpose and less to your bank balance.
