Timing is everything.
This single was released on 20 June 2012. Funny how this hit Number One the same week. A last-minute single that was originally released on Soundhound, this song (which, at least on our local top 40 station, is being billed as Carly Rae Jepsen feat. Owl City, and not the other way around) has ridden the coattails of Call Me Maybe to be a hit.
Which I would be upset about if I didn't find the song so damned infectious. Owl City has put together a song that benefits from Carly's presence, but doesn't require it. A perfect featured performance.
Update: 23 August: Owl City was on the Today Show and performed this song in Rockefeller Plaza. Would you like to see that? Of course you would! Here is the clip.
