Just heard it its good , the new No 1 in Billboard Hot 100
******
LIKE IT
******
Everyone seems to like this song. It has a perfect mix of electonica and alternative.
*
I find this boring and empty
***
People seem to either have an allergic reaction to this song, or just love it to bits. I can understand both reactions but I'm left conflicted. On one hand, at a time when we were flooded with same sounding hits that overstayed their welcome, this was at least something different. I at least appreciate the booming transition into the 2nd chorus.

However, the 'something different' is one of the problems for me. I have heard of The Postal Service. I adored "Such Great Heights" long before this came to surface, and have since enjoyed their album too. I'm not alone in this though, because Adam Young certainly has heard of them too, and even cites them as an influence. This 'influence' is much more than a faint resemblance. But then hey, if something sounds exactly like The Postal Service, what's wrong with hearing that everywhere? Well, the song is rather flawed and doesn't even compare to TPS. The vocals lend towards the now synonymous Owl City style of over-enunciating everything and there's just something really uncomfortable about that. The lyrics don't help either.

As I said, this conflicts me. Sonically it's flawed but listenable, which is what I should be rating this on. However, it's just not the groundbreaking masterpiece it's often made out to be.

Simplistic, and doesn't make much sense
*****
starting to get old quickly

Took me a few listens to like this but now i think it's great and uplifting. Voted UK Record of the Year 2010. UK#1 and Ireland#1.

boring as hell
*
Boring as anything.
*****
Great, the track swims along in a mellow rhythm before exploding into a chorus. Lyrics are different to the common song, also all corners are rounded as the song doesn't leave the listener stranded which means a perfect kareoke single. Summing up a simple melodic happy tune!
**
This would have to be one of the worst rock pop songs i have ever heard, typical that it would reach No.1 in Australia it seems we are easily pleased with sappy crap songs like this
****
Not bad, but nearly forgettable like other ten millions of pop songs on the radio.
*****
Cute song :))
******
Even though it seems quite simple, it's not. I love the melody and the lyrics are uber cute!

Excellent - a deserving number 1

I never reviewed this? Weird. Anyway it's a fantastic song that I was surprised to see actually got to #1 the way it deserved to. Great track.
*
Horrible.
******
One of my favourite songs of all-time. Extremely catchy with lovable lyrics, spent 14 weeks at #1 on my personal charts (as well as hitting the top of my iTunes Most Played within mere weeks).
***
its not too bad the lyrics are clever but it is pointless.

good song, but it's a song about INSOMNIA for crying out loud!!!
*
Whiny Garage-Band song that seems to be about masturbation
*****
Spent two weeks at #1 on my personal.

Came in at #142 on my TOP 200 OF 2009.

Came in at #13 on my TOP 200 OF 2010.

*****
great track, cant believe I didnt review it baha :P
******
One of the best songs I've heard, still love it. This song will never get old
****
Overrated much, good song though .
*****
A worthy #1 in Australia. A nice laid back tune, that assists you in relaxing and escaping the world for 4 minutes. In this time of electronica, this has a unique sound.
*
TRASH!
**
annoying, over-played and overrated
****
Good song but I wouldn't say I love it. The first #1 of the '10s decade in Australia, but so far not proving to be much of a typical representation of the era.
***
no bad
*****
Pretty good electropop track.
*****
pretty nice
******
Amazing.
*****
Nice soothing track. Only loses a point because it was overplayed.
******
Excellent synthpop track. My favourite song of 2010. Good to see it went to number one and had the success it did

Yeah it's pretty good.
******
Gorgeous song
***
Hated it at 1st but then it became tolerable.
****
A worthy #1 and a catchy song with a pretty cool video. One of two songs Owl City has been successful for.
****
still good despite the fact that it sounds dated
