Kelly & Michael: Owl City The Midsummer Station
Owl City is an electronic pop music project formed in 2007 by singer-songwriter Adam Young, which got its start in his parents’ basement. Adam is a talented multi-instrumentalist, and first gained mainstream success with his 2009 album Ocean Eyes. That debut album featured the hit single “Fireflies.”
Owl City’s latest hit single features “Call Me Maybe” singer Carly Rae Jepsen. The song is called “Good Time,” and you may have heard it play on Live! recently; it’s been the soundtrack to lots of good times between new co-hosts Kelly and Michael.
“Good Time” is featured on the band’s latest album, which is their fourth, called The Midsummer Station. On Kelly & Michael September 12, Owl City stopped by to perform a special acoustic version of “Good Time” for the audience and the hosts.
Owl City: “Good Time” Acoustic Performance
Adam Young, accompanied by his band, performed a special acoustic version of “Good Time” for the crowd–maybe because Carly Rae Jepsen was M.I.A? Regardless, it was a great, slowed-down version of the hit song.
Kelly admitted that she is a big fan of Owl City’s music, and congratulated Adam on his success after he finished playing. Kelly & Michael revealed that Owl City is about to begin a huge, worldwide tour. They will soon start in Boston and then move on to Europe, Australia, and Japan. Michael also chimed in, offering his congratulations. From playing in the basement to Live! with Kelly and Michael; not too shabby!
