O for Owl City

This post is brought to you by the letter O.

So I'm kind of obsessed with Owl City. It's Adam Young's one-man band. You might know him from his song Firefly - "You would not believe your eyes/ if ten million fireflies/ lit up the world as I fell asleep."

It's been on the radio a million times, and I still love it.

One of my friends claims that Owl City's music all pretty much sounds the same, and that's kind of true. But if I love the style and it all sounds the same, that means I have a winning recipe. Right?

My sister bought concert tickets for us to see Owl City in Indianapolis last year. He has a touring band because obviously he can't play 8+ instruments at once live. Although the audience was mostly composed of squealing girls under the age of 17, it was a fantastic concert, and Adam had a great stage presence.

Here are a couple of my favorite Owl City songs, which I have never heard on the radio:

Vanilla Twilight


The Airway

That's enough for now. There's an entire Owl City Playlist, if you're interested.

Now You!
