Wow, this sounds like a combo of One Direction and Hot Chille Rae. I guess that should be expected though with Owl City, haha.

I hear the "Baby you light up the room like nobody else. The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed" in the prechorus for this one.

It obviously isn't the same, my head just immediately jumped to that song when i listened to this.

Sounds more Ocean Eyes-esque than anything he's done in years. That said, the hook is kinda weak.

Agree with the 1D thing, but it's mostly the cadence of what he's saying, not the actual tune. It's not too shabby though.

Yeah, you're right. I went back and listened to the One Direction song to see. You could just sing the One Direction song over that prechorus of the Owl City song, but the melody isn't the same. Weird that my mind went to that 1D song though since i've never listened to it purposely until a second ago, haha.

The first 39 seconds felt like it had incredible potential. Then he lost me.

I definitely hear the melody from "What Makes You Beautiful" mixed in the pre-chorus too, but not enough to be considered a rip-off.

Same here, there was good build up but the chorus was weak.

I feel like his voice has improved quite a bit... but that melody is clearly lifted from One Direction

Intentional or not... its pretty lame


(edit)

Then again... His fanbase has completely changed - He probably doesnt give a fuck how this community feels about it.
