I'm never one to say that I have a "favorite" band. My tastes in music are extremely varied. While I like genres of music and certain songs, it becomes really difficult for me to say if I like a certain band or not. I guess it depends on what my current situation is in life, and my mood.
Lately, I've discovered a band that is musically relevant to me and my life at the moment. Owl City is fantastic, across all of its songs. When I listen to them, I feel nostalgic, almost like a kid running amok in a field with his best friend... or a childhood love. All of Adam Young's songs have this fantasy, whimsical feel to them because of the lyrics. "Fireflies" is such a great example of this. They are a lot of fun, which is lately how I've been feeling.
"The Tip of the Iceberg" is a lot of fun, because it is a love song in a setting of a white winter wonderland... and then all of a sudden, at the 2:12 mark, the winter wonderland becomes the site of a rave. Sheer genius.
"The Saltwater Room" is the song most on my mind at the moment though. The chorus lyrics really speak to me and the questions that have been on my mind.
Time together isn't ever quite enough,
(When you and I are alone, I've never felt so at home)
What will it take to make or break this hint of love?
(We need time, only time)
When we're apart whatever are you thinking of?
(If this is what I call home, why do I feel so alone?)
So tell me darling, do you wish we'd fall in love?
(All the time, all the time.)
Hm. I wonder.
Keep dancing, my fellow LJ friends.
