Hospital Flowers

Album: All Things Bright & Beautiful (2011)
  • This song is a vivid description of a car accident that lands the singer in the hospital, where he counts his blessings. When he spoke with Adam Young of Owl City, he told us that it was based on a true story. Said Young: "I had a friend who was in an accident and I watched his recovery change his outlook on life. I feel like we could all use a disaster here and there to wake us up." (Here's our full Adam Young interview.)
  • Adam Young's mother, Joan, is credited with "additional vocals" on this track.
