Owl City Covers Rick Nelson’s “Garden Party”, Reviewed

"Firefly"!  Owl City guy made a hit and poof, gone.  But get a load of this, he has the nerve to take on Ricky Nelson.  With a horrific pre programmed backing track and that god awful voice effect.

I'm not sure why he would do this- unless of course he was sitting around in his garage and someone recorded it and smuggled it out and put it on the internet as a cruel joke.  The tempo sucks the words lost their meaning and the frikkin clap beat makes me want to whip my computer clear across the room  This, my friends is hell on ears.

Here is what Owl Boy has to say about it,

"I grew up with this song in my head but I never put it all together until recently, and when I did, I was pretty amazed because I can relate in a small way. Being under a microscope does something to you, makes you a caged animal, plants a primal instinct in you to strive to be the good guy always, no matter what, and sometimes life deals you a disaster and you don’t know how to take it. Similarly, I tend to deal with life by writing songs, and it seems this was Rick’s way of dealing with a curveball which I find admirable — because for an artist, what better way to deal with life than by writing about it? I like the bittersweet layer under the surface, I like the echoed themes of melancholy and disappointment. I like sad songs disguised as happy songs. I like honesty."

Should have just left it in his head.
