The 2010-50 - No.42: It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
"Fireflies" - Owl City.
It may have been one of this year's most significant one-hit-wonders, but it was also one of the most welcome. A one-man band, Adam Young briefly achieved his moment of world domination with this simple, dreamy little song, which didn't need talent shows or media hype to boost its popularity, and which seemed to effortlessly touch a worldwide audience.
On a more personal level, this song is a little bit special to me because it will always remind me of my Gothenburg trip in March 2010, as it was one of the most played songs on the radio when I was there :)
On the down side I could have done without the irritating vocal effects though.
