Galaxies

Album: All Things Bright & Beautiful (2011)
  • This follows the song "January 28, 1986," which is about the Space Shuttle disaster, on the album. When we spoke with Adam Young of Owl City, he explained: "Space has always been inspiring to me and I've always liked reading about it because we know so little about it. I like the great unknowns, the unexplored - that stuff has always been fun to think about. I was bummed when Pluto got crossed off the cool planet list."
