I Love Fireflies Owl City

I have to admit that Owl City's fireflies has gotta be the NO.1# song in my music chart right now. I have been listening to it for quite some time without knowing the title and the singer of the song. I only found out that it is known as Fireflies after Foong shared it with me through twitter the other day. So yes, this is my favourite-test song of the moment. Fireflies is just out of this world if you ask me. The tune and beats are so unique. Refreshing and vibrant would be the perfect words to describe Owl City's masterpiece. :)

No. The name has nothing to do with the building.

But...do you know how on earth is Owl City? Will you be surprised if I tell you that it is not a band? Owl City is actually a one-man musical project by Adam Young. And this song Fireflies had actually hit the NO.1# spot on Billboard Hot 100 and UK. Super awesome right? Young's music has a lot of disco and electronic flavour in it, but then again his music such as Fireflies sounds so funky and virulent.

Adam Young-the genius behind Owl City.

Now, do you know how Adam Young coined the name Owl City? Can you give it a good guess? :p You see he was in the 2nd Grade...in one of the show-and-tell session...one of his friends happened to bring an OWL for his show-and-tell presentation. When he was about to start, the Owl manage to escape and all the classmates tried their best to capture the owl again. So...the whole moment was about...well the owl. So Adam Young used the name Owl City ever since. Now you know. :)

Anyway here's Owl City's brilliant Fireflies MTV. Enjoy!



"Fireflies"

You would not believe your eyes
If ten million fireflies
Lit up the world as I fell asleep
Cause they'd fill the open air
And leave tear drops everywhere
You'd think me rude but I would just stand and
Stare

I'd like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns, slowly
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
Cause everything is never as it seems

Cause I'd get a thousand hugs
From ten thousand lightning bugs
As they tried to teach me how to dance
A foxtrot above my head
A sock-hop beneath my bed
The disco ball is just hanging by a thread
(Thread, thread...)

I'd like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns, slowly
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
Cause everything is never as it seems
(When I fall asleep)

Leave my door open just a crack
(Please take me away from here)
Cause I feel like such an insomniac
(Please take me away from here)
Why do I tire of counting sheep?
(Please take me away from here)
When I'm far too tired to fall asleep
(Ha-ha)

To ten million fireflies
I'm weird cause I hate goodbyes
I got misty eyes as they said farewell
(Said farewell)
But I'll know where several are
If my dreams get real bizarre
Cause I saved a few and I keep them in a jar
(Jar, jar, jar...)

I'd like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns, slowly
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
Cause everything is never as it seems
(When I fall asleep)
[x2]

I'd like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns, slowly
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
Because my dreams are bursting at the seams
