iI think owl city is the best artist out there. his music is not about sex, drugs, or violence, it's just about having fun, happiness, and enjoying life. I hope adam you get this message because me and you will be meeting each other real soon and hopefully, that we make music video together and help change the life of others. sincerly, new life. p.s. let me leave you a quote i came up with:"life was given to us to mhave a dream and have a future".

I agree with New Life. It's simple, it's clean, it's music you want to listen to on a sunny day with the window down and just be happy. Art, whether it be music or not, does NOT have rules. That's the beauty of it. I enjoy the uncomplicated sounds of Owl City...

I like owl city because he's a great role model for other singers. he had a hard life but,he made something of himself by turning himself to christ and writing wonderful music. his music is not rappers who make music about killing, fighting and stealing from each other. I think owl city is the future to a whole new generation of singers who want to make something of themselves. thank you, adam young for helping start a whole new generation and good luck on your next song and i hope it's a hit just like fireflies. talk to you later, MG.

The line about "hugs from 10000 lightning bugs" reminded me of an e e cummings poem that says "i'd rather learn from one bird how to sing/than teach ten thousand stars how not to dance." There is something to be said for simplicity, clean lyrics, Slurpees and naivete in the face what is out there in popular today, including groups that claim they are "singing" when it is merely growly screaming, anger, publicizing their sex lives and swearing. It's one of the songs that makes Top 40 and "alternative rock" stations bearable on occasion.

No disrespect but, rap music got nothing on owl city. i mean rap is okay but,owl city is better than any rapper out there to me he is. rap talks about sex, drugs and violence. adam's music talks about happiness, fun, and faith. I think adam is a wonderful artist and i wish him the best of luck on his tours and i hope he continues his success.

I think everybody should lay off adam. just because he sounds like postal service doesn't mean he's a cheap off. owl city is a great singer.

I wouldn't say owl city's the best but, he's much better than rappers and heavy metal bands. So, yeah.

I don't think owl city's cheesy. He's just a unique singer who has A DISORDER AND DECIDES instead of complaining he'll make music for people.

I think it's cute that adam is shy but, when he gets on stage he sings beautifully and gives you show. I love you, adam and I'll be at your next show.

Owl City should not give up on singing. He is one of the most artist that you don't hear about but, he proved to people that he is a great singer and I bet he is a nice guy in real life.
