I hate it. Owl City is terrible. I sincerely hope you're joking because those people are the worst. Why's this Owl City guy always sound like he's whispering?
Well to me he's a great inspiration, someone who's overcame insomnia to pursue a career in music. And at the same time he writes all his songs, which is already MILES ahead of Rhianna, LMFAO, or whatever is out there these days. There's also no denying his lyrics are hundred times more profound and uplifting than the mainstream BS you hear these days.
Singers don't have to scream their head off in a song. Pumped UP Kicks is a great song where the singers whisper the entire time, you don't see anyone hating it.
