Deer In the Headlights

Owl City’s latest music video came out today, and I have to say that it is my favorite so far! I love that there are jellyfish flying around him. :D There may be a couple of octopus too, but they went by so fast I couldn’t tell for sure. Plus a T Rex!? Bonus awesome points! :D And for anyone who might know who she is, the girl in the convenience store is Lights, another singer who uses electronic music.

In case you are wondering about the guy at the end, that was himself, from his previous music video for Alligator Sky.

And just because I feel like it, I’m going to add his four other music videos. :)

First is the song that launched him to fame, Fireflies.

And then there’s the music video for his song “To the Sky” that he wrote for “Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole”. I love that movie so much! I really need to watch it again. This might be my favorite Owl City song of all. I’m not sure, I have so many favorites. Regardless, this song is the most played Owl City song on my iPod.

Next is Vanilla Twilight. I love the cinematography in this one, and the lighthouse is really beautiful.

Last but not least is Umbrella Beach.

This one has more of a dance feel to it than the others, but it loses none of Adam’s signature cheerfulness. That’s what draws me to his music. It has such an optimistic feeling to it. It never fails to cheer me up when I hear it. :)


  1. Also, for anyone wondering, the car he is driving in "Deer In the Headlights" is the time traveling DeLorean from Back to the Future.

  2. hat car is so sweet... Umbrella Beach actually has to be my favorite... never seen it before... or heard it... I'm in the middle of watching it. What a wierd guy... why, is there any explanation for any of his songs or videos? Who is that rapper in the one?

  3. The rapper is Shawn Chrystopher. I've never heard of him, as I don't listen to rap. I didn't mind this song though, because it didn't sound angry like most rap. I don't think Owl City is capable of making angry sounding music. :) There are meanings to all his songs, but I'm not sure he has specifically explained all the lyrics anywhere. It would be nice if he'd write a book that told what they all mean.
