Good Time - Owl City feat. Carly Rae Jepsen

Carly Rae Jepsen has been responsible for one of the biggest, catchiest (and most annoying) songs of the year so far in Call Me Maybe.
Adam Young, aka Owl City, is best known for his chiptune hit single Fireflies from back in 2009.

Together, they've created an unstoppable, gleefully happy cheese-fest.  As the titled suggests, this is a simple song with a clear message - have fun.  And listening to this, you can't help but sing and dance along, grinning from ear to ear.  As for the chorus, once that "whooa" hook slips easily into your brain you'll be hard-pressed to think of anything else.  Good Time is a chirpy little feel-good pop tune that does exactly what it says on the tin.

That said, give it a couple of weeks and, after endless repeats, this happiness could turn just as easily to hatred.


Listen: Good Time is released on 26th June.
