Professor’s Notes:

Sounds like hope mixed with a hint of apprehension. Peaceful and soothing. Takes me on a journey to somewhere joyful and carefree. The vocals and the music gel together in perfect harmony. It took me 20 seconds to fall in love with this song.

      Najib you are so right. I believe we’re going to see more of this kind of music rise to the forefront. The major record labels are losing their prominence and more indie bands and artists are coming forward with an uplifting message and soul in their music.

      I consider myself a leader of the hippie revival. Hippies and our messages of peace, hope, and a better world are definitely going to become more dominant in music in the next few years.

      Thanks for your comments!

      “Fireflies” was my first exposure to Owl City but it made me an instant fan 🙂 Adam Young is an awesome musician and songwriter. I get the feeling that meeting him would be a great experience because he seems like someone who’d be down-to-earth and personable.

      I should try waking up Owl City. What a great way to start my day!

      Thanks for commenting Jennifer ^_^
