Swedish House Mafia Save The World

We’re taking it back to 2011 this week with Swedish House Mafia’s hit track, “Save The World”!


Something that I miss about the era of electronic music in which Swedish, progressive house dominated the soundscape was the absolutely uplifting, positive message that came with the music. The era was defined by tracks that featured melodies that were infectious and spread that mantra that we as ravers could come together to truly change the world. While many tunes embodied that message, none made that as clear as Swedish House Mafia‘s massive track, “Save The World”.

Over time, the message of the scene shifted in different directions as it grew into the behemoth that it is today. While many artists are creating sounds that still push that message of togetherness and that uplifting feeling that brings us together, it definitely has been less pronounced as of late.

With the current state of affairs of the world in mind and the constant things that arise seemingly every single day that affect or put down many in the scene, I think it is important to remember that together we can create a beautiful tomorrow. So for this week’s Throwback Thursday I chose a song that nearly everyone in the electronic music scene should at least know.

Arguably Swedish House Mafia‘s biggest hit, “Save The World” helped break the barrier that had been put up between electronic music and terrestrial radio. Played out constantly at what seemed like every party, event, or festival for years, this track not only gave us something to dance to but also a mission to embark on. Listen to the track below and tell us your favorite moment with this trio in the comments!

Swedish House Mafia – Save The World – Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Into the streets
We’re coming down
We never sleep
Never get tired
Through urban fields
And suburban lights

[Hook]
Turn the crowd up now
We’ll never back down
Shoot down the skyline
Watch it on primetime
Turn up the love now
Listen up now, turn up the love

[Chorus]
Who’s gonna save the world tonight?
Who’s gonna bring it back to life?
We’re gonna make it, you and I
We’re gonna save the world tonight

[Verse 2]
It’s far from home
It’s for the better
What we dream, it’s all that matters
We’re on our way, united

[Hook]
Turn the crowd up now
We’ll never back down
Shoot down the skyline
Watch it on primetime
Turn up the love now
Listen up now, turn up the love

[Chorus]
Who’s gonna save the world tonight?
Who’s gonna bring it back to life?
We’re gonna make it, you and I
We’re gonna save the world tonight

[Outro]
Who’s gonna save
Who’s gonna bring
We’re gonna make it, you and I
Who’s gonna save
Who’s gonna bring
We’re gonna save the world tonight
