Music Tuesdays: Owl City & Carly Rae Jepsen - Good Time

I really liked the other Owl City song...the one about fireflies or lightning bugs...what's it called? Oh, Fireflies.  Violet and I also danced to Carly Rae Jepsen's other song, I can't even remember the title.  It's the one the Harvard baseball team covered.

This combination of Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen feels like a total marketing ploy.  I hadn't heard anything by Owl City since their first huge song and Carly Rae Jepsen initially felt like she was totally capable of being a one hit wonder.  So she partners with a known band to make sure she at least gets that second song and Owl City becomes relevant again by partnering with the current hot single before people forget her.  Total marketing ploy...and I love it.

Finally, because I chose this song, you know it's going to be overplayed in about a month.

  1. Love the point about possible one-hit-wonders combining forces, so that they "at least get that second song". Amazing observation hahaha.
