Thunderstruck

Album: Mobile Orchestra (2015)
  • This club-ready tune about a doomed romance finds Owl City's Adam Young teaming up with UK trance diva Sarah Russell.
  • Young explained the song's lyrical content to Radio.com: "The message is this idea that… the feeling that you get when you first fall in love, you feel like you're floating," he said. "Everything's beautiful and nothing hurts. The twist is, the main character has fallen in love with a ghost. So that perfect romance is doomed from the start. And it's a little morbid, but I think that it's really beautiful, in an Edgar Allen Poe kind of way."
