Owl City這個樂團其實只有一個成員:Adam Young. 這個名字又是亞當又是年輕,感覺很純粹又天真。當被問到為什麼要取這個團名,Adam說:有個小學同學的父親養貓頭鷹,那天他父親帶著貓頭鷹來教室,卻一不小心鬆綁了。貓頭鷹在教室裡撲翅亂飛,所有的小孩到處奔跑、尖叫、大笑。這一幕就此刻印在他心裡。

 

Vanilla Twilight (香草曙光)24秒下的間奏很有國樂古典味道,與電音奇妙的融合,讓這首歌在西洋流行樂中鶴立雞群。收錄在Ocean Eyes 專輯中,這並不是他的第一張專輯。早在2007Adam就因為常常失眠,開始在父母家中的地下室創作。

 

這首歌詞寫得如詩句般優美:

The silence isn't so bad,  

Till I look at my hands and feel sad,  

Cause the spaces between my fingers 

Are right where yours fit perfectly.

寂靜並不糟

直到當我看著自己的手才感到悲傷

因為我的指間縫隙應與你的手指完美契合

 

It takes two to whisper quietly

需要兩個人才能竊聲低語

 

And I lie awake I miss you,

Pour me a heavy dose of atmosphere.

 

I'll sit on the front porch all night,

Waist-deep in thought because when I think of you.

I don't feel so alone.

 

濃濃的思念與淡淡地哀傷讓我想到最近看的阿甘正傳,當Forrest Gump坐在門廊想念他的Jenny時,很適合配上這首歌。

Vanilla Twilight— lyrics

By Owl City

 

The stars lean down to kiss you,

And I lie awake I miss you,

Pour me a heavy dose of atmosphere.

Cause I'll doze off safe and soundly,

But I'll miss your arms around me

I'll send a postcard to you dear,

Cause I wish you were here.

 

I watch the night turn light blue,

But it's not the same without you,

Because it takes two to whisper quietly,

The silence isn't so bad,

Till I look at my hands and feel sad,

Cause the spaces between my fingers

Are right where yours fit perfectly.

 

I'll find opposing new ways,

Though I haven't slept in two days,

Cause cold nostalgia chills me to the bone.

But drenched in Vanilla twilight,

I'll sit on the front porch all night,

Waist-deep in thought because when I think of you.

I don't feel so alone.

I don't feel so alone.

I don't feel so alone.

 

As many times as I blink I'll think of you... tonight.

I'll think of you tonight.

 

When violet eyes get brighter,

And heavy wings grow lighter,

I'll taste the sky and feel alive again.

And I'll forget the world that I knew,

But I swear I won't forget you,

Oh if my voice could reach back through the past,

I'd whisper in your ear,

Oh darling I wish you were here.
