Fireflies by Owl City
Owl City reminds me a lot of Deathcab For Cutie and Postal Service, both
Ben Gibbard's babies. It is in my estimation very thoughtful, easy listening music that most people will enjoy.
Fireflies reminds me of when I was a little girl and everything was possible because I believed in magic. I would sneak through the forest around my house trying to catch fairies. I reveled in my imaginings and it was the best part of my childhood.
I remember the first time I saw real fireflies in Alabama. Hundreds of little twinkling stars dancing around the trees. I had finally caught my fairies.
I love it that this song recalls these feelings.
