Mandatory Music: Fireflies by Owl City

Owl City is a synthpop project that formed in early 2007 consisting of one member, Adam Young. Young started out making music in his parents' basement, which he claims is a result of his insomnia.

Owl City found early popularity through its own MySpace profile, which has received more than 6 million plays on tracks, such as "Hello Seattle". However, the song I picked for today's Mandatory Music is Fireflies.

I've been obsessed with this song for the last month. It has such a whimsical and fun quality to it that you just can't help but smile when you hear it.

Selected Lyrics:

To ten million fireflies
I'm weird 'cause I hate goodbyes
I got misty eyes as they said farewell

What do you think?
