Thanks Barbara for today’s promp:

Find a pop song about love

Please head over to her intriguing blog β€œTeleporting Weena” and pay her a compliment or two. Thanks.

I might be a little behind when it comes to modern artists. At least when it comes to a music project called “Owl City” by multi-instrumentalist Adam Young. Apparently, young Mr Young πŸ˜‰ is active since 2007 and has created music for films like Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole, Wreck-It Ralph, The Croods, VeggieTales & Smurfs 2. That is quite impressive isn’t it?

It says on the “About” page of “Owl City”: Following the release of 2015’s Mobile Orchestra, he took a step back from Owl City and devoted 2016 to releasing one instrumental score per month, simply as β€œAdam Young,” basing each song off of a favorite historical event. These spanned Apollo 11, RMS Titanic, The Spirit of St. Louis, The Ascent of Everest, Omaha Beach, Miracle in the Andes, Project Excelsior, Corduroy Road, Voyager 1, Mount Rushmore, and The Endurance. This exercise earmarked something of a creative turning point. I had no chance yet to check his instrumentals out but am rather excited to explore those. What a great idea to base music on historic events! I love it!

The song I have chosen is called “Fireflies” and I have no idea how I found it. It just popped up in one of my searches on YouTube and I found it so intriguing that I chose it for today’s prompt. It has apparently for two non-consecutive weeks topped the Bilboard Hot 100 and was in the charts in Europe but I can’t remember ever hearing it. The song was on Owl City’s debut album “Ocean Eyes” which came out in 2009 and is featured in several video games.

Enough information for now. Just sit back and enjoy a great song and if it doesn’t play here on the blog, follow the link underneath.
