Owl City1:26 PM
The past week, I haven't been so productive yet not also lazy. Just moderate and relaxed. How loving is the feeling of being in the comfort zone, right? But dangerous. Idleness keeps us from doing things right. But this post isn't about being idle nor being hardworking or anything related to what I have mentioned above. It's about the title!
Just recently, I've become engrossed with Owl City. I don't know how I came up listening to their music, I just found myself one day that I'm downloading all their songs. Maybe it's because of the new hit song, Good Time of Carly Rae Jepsen with Owl City. Well anyway, Owl City, according to Wikipedia:
is an American electronica musical project by singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Adam Young formed in 2007 in Owatonna, Minnesota. Young created the project while experimenting with music in his parents' basement. Owl City developed a following on the social networking site Myspace, like many musicians who achieved success in the late 2000s, before signing with Universal Republic in 2008.

Owl City's music is described as indietronica and synthpop and is often described as belonging under the "electronic music" label.

I think this is the first reason why I liked Owl City. His music is so unique! And Adam Young started recording because of insomnia at the basement of his parent's house. That's something to creativity! Second reason is that Owl City also sings Christian songs. I rarely listen to secular singers but because Adam is a Christian singer I found it interesting to listen to his compositions. Lastly is the lyrics.
If you'll really take time to listen to his songs and at the same time read the lyrics, there are no harsh and violent words. Some say, he's songs are a bit emo-type, but I like it that way. Some are lively!
Here are some of my favorites Owl City's songs:
