Owl City And Ferry Corsten

If you haven’t heard of Owl City’s latest album “All Things Bright And Beautiful”…? You should pick up their album and listen to it.

Extremely cool and sometimes funny song lyrics.

The music isn’t half bad either. Very lively and melodic–something you could easily pen a novel to–if you knew which songs to use as the basis for your writing.

My favorites from the album are:

Deer in the Headlights (If you haven’t seen the music video to this one you should!)


Honey and the Bee (I crave a salad whenever I hear this play)

Kamikaze (I would call this “road jamming” music. Something you could pop the top down and cruise in style)

Galaxies (For some strange feeling, Hercules-The Legendary Journeys came to my mind whenever I played this song)

Alligator Sky


Another artist I recently acquired goes by the name of Ferry Corsten. I was fortunate to hear a song of his play (called “Into The Dark”) on my local radio station and I immediately had to have that song and whatever else I could shinnagle (Sky slang) off of CD

I spent $50 downloading 64 songs off this guy’s six albums for my 38th birthday this month (Jan. 3) and I was hooked. Perhaps one of the best compilations of electronica and dance in a good long while.

Such songs like “Into The Dark”, “Junk” and “Beautiful” make jamming to this music a rare treat in itself. But the fun didn’t stop there.

“Made of Love”, “Galaxia”, “Possession”, and “Slow Motion” also got my blood going and the juices flowing into my writing again–just the thing I needed to start 2012 off to a good year. ^_^
