Many people think that Owl City’s music sounds cool when played with Rainymood, and Beautiful Times is no exception. Please enjoy, and happy Easter, everyone!!
I did a thing to Beautiful Times. It’s set to the cancelled Fox show, Touch. Please enjoy.
When I find the origins of the term “HootOwls” online, I’m always looking for something else. Now, when I want to find the origin of the term “HootOwls”, I find absolutely nothing relevant! Help a fellow HootOwl out and pinpoint a location online that explains this
when Google fails me?
Guys, it’s 04/15/14…
*waits patiently in the shadows*
I know. He’s been so quiet about this date.
My best guess: “Beautiful Times” will make it’s debut to radio today. ”Shooting Star” was originally scheduled to make it’s debut to radio after release, in late June, but we all know that “Good Time” was chosen in place of it. Perhaps, in part due to the flop of the late radio debut of “Shooting Star”, today the label will debut the song “Beautiful Times” to the radio. I’ll see if I can’t get “Yah or No?” recorded today in case it is of “Beautiful Times”!!
Adam sure changes his lyrics a lot before release. Maybe I’m Dreaming has “Staring up at the planes that aren’t there anymore”, while Ocean Eyes has “Staring up at the STARS that aren’t there anymore”. Then we have the different lyrics in Dreams Don’t Turn to Dust as seen in the Making of ATBAB video on VEVO. The bridge is completely different even:
It’s like dying to live, squinting to see
All of that distant thunder that never made sense to me
As every pearl turns muddy to rust
I’ll feather the breeze ‘cause dreams don’t turn to dust
Sky Sailing is even included. Consider Brielle: “Breathing the sweet ocean air makes a shy boy aware that he could be free” vs. “Breathing the sweet forest air makes a blue bird aware that she could be free”. And now, Beautiful Times is added to this!! As others may have noticed on Instagram, the caption included fits the verses. Sung to the melody of the vine, the lyrics read:
A cold panic
In the Atlantic
Turned the Titanic
Into a ghost town
My best guess is that it’s in place of:
A slow motion
Wave on the ocean
Stirs my emotion
Up like a raincloud
But I could be wrong. Just thought I’d share this lovely find with you!!
ok guys is it wonder or wander??
like im pretty sure its wander but people are saying its wonder so im confused
Adam commented on other people’s posts here saying it’s wander, but wonder is what I first heard it to be as well. I’ll take Adam at his word and say it’s wander.
I passed a theater on State Street, a place in Madison where there are a lot of stores and such. We always get to walk around on State Street for a few hours before the competition. Anyways, a certain name popped out at me:
Don’t see the name yet? How about now:
And I’m like, “Oh my word! The violinist from Beautiful Times! A very talented musician!!!” And to think that a few weeks ago, I would have walked on thinking, “Lindsey who?” I didn’t even know she does live shows across the country!! Now she’s coming to Madison on June 4th!?!? I wish I could go, but nope, got semester exams!!!
BTW, that picture was the only thing I got on State Street!
