Adam Young, the man behind Owl City, is an introverted shy guy. He doesn't speak much. So he writes. Anyway, much of what he said is outstanding. Here's a selection of the top ten things he said.

The Top Ten

1 The cycle is strange; you chase an inspiration and immerse yourself in a vision so wholeheartedly that it becomes almost philosophical to you, but eventually you must deconstruct it and unlearn everything you thought you knew in order to begin anew.

"... For me, music is funny that way. The more I study it, the less I understand it." -Adam Young - keyson

I knew a list like this'd be coming from you, Keyson! Young doesn't seem to be young at all, this quote and the no-limits ones were real nice. And inspiring. - HezarioSeth

2 I’m thrilled to be returning to an old familiar approach of making a record which is all about letting it live and breathe and pull into focus naturally. No time limits, no restrictions, no deadlines, no scrambling last minute

"... " just letting the music emerge and unfold and evolve organically. This is my favorite part. Gonna be awesome." -Adam Young - keyson

3 Circle me and the needle moves gracefully Back and forth, if my heart was a compass you'd be North Risk it all cause I'll catch you if you fall Wherever you go, if my heart was a house you'd be home

From the song "If My Heart Was A House" - keyson

4 Every girl has a Prince Chraming... yours just took a wrong turn, got lost, and is too stubborn to ask for directions.
5 I'd rather waltz than just walk through the forest, The trees keep the tempo and they sway in time, Quartet of crickets chime in for the chorus, If I were to pluck on your heartstrings would you strum on mine?

From the song "Plant Life" - keyson

6 When the new sites go old and I start to feel cold I'll sail home again

From the song "Brielle" - keyson

7 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

From the song "Vanilla Twilight" - keyson

8 it’s so annoying when I go to the movie theater and the people behind me complain the whole time because they can’t see around my sombrero
9 Trying to forget someone you love is like trying to remember someone you never knew

This is so true. Beautiful list Keyson. - Britgirl

10 Reality is a lovely place, but I wouldn't wanna live there.

That's true. So who is with me here. - Kiteretsunu
