2 Plant Life Plant Life

Most people don't understand the lyrics to this song. You kind of have to listen to it a few times to understand it properly. But once you do, this song is so much more than just about plants! It's a wonderfully written song about overcoming your fears and the melody must of took ages to get right.

I listened to all the songs of the album except this one. By looking at the song title, I didn't found it interesting. Finally when I pushed the "play" button I just repeated the song again and again! One of his best hits I must say.

I really didn't hear this song at first until my friend told me about it.. Really a wonderful song from a great artist!
Love you Adam!

How is this one underrated? In my opinion this is so overrated. A bunch of my friends who are also Owl City nerds agree with me.

3 The Saltwater Room The Saltwater Room

Definitely the most underrated Owl City song; Lucid Dream is pretty underrated also. - MaxSchler

This song is beautiful, sad, and the male- female duet just takes my vote. - GeneralJP

4 Strawberry Avalanche

Super whimsical and catchy. Easily the most underrated Owl City song. - RhinoTech

This is such a sweet song and the lyrics are so random and funny with a really catching beat! This is one of my favorites. Go Adam!

5 The Real World

This song is just so perfect. The lyrics are so true, and just like all of Adam's songs he puts so much thought into each line. This is by far his best song. When I listen to this song I am immediately taken away from "the real world" and I don't feel stressed about life anymore. That's why this song in my opinion is one of the beat.

Anyone who loves nature will absolutely love dis song! Way to go adam!

I don't live there

Not my fave song, but it’s the opener to my fave album. So it’s very nostalgic.

6 When Can I See You Again?

Does no one care that Wreck-It Ralph was underrated too?

How on earth did this song NOT make it anywhere on the Billboard Charts? In my opinion, it was one of the stronger tracks of 2012; The fact that it was featured in a Disney family movie shouldn't change that fact.

Immortals and Let It Go made it on the Billboard Top 10, but not this song?

Tell me when? When can I see you again?

I absolutely love this song. I know it by heart!

I would say that this song makes my top 5 Owl City songs list. I can't imagine why so many people could wave it off as irrelevant or frivolous. I personally think it has inspiring lyrics, but lyrics aside (because some people think the lyrics are a bit childish), this song is amazing and powerful on its own. The instrumental version sounds fantastic, and I can't help but enjoy this song every time I hear it. I can understand why it's not one of Owl City's most popular songs (because it's a little different than what he usually does), but I still think it is underrated much too often.

This song is so underrated, the only reason people didn't like it was because it was something a little different to what adam usually does. They used it in our school musical and that's when I fell in love with the song! Ah so good!

I think it is so weird how this song is not popular, while stupid, uninspired money grabber songs are popular! The tune and lyrics are pure genius. Adam, you are amazingly amazing!

The limerick at the end is the best!

It’s beautiful. I love the theme of falling in love with a ghost. It’s whimsical but meaningful, and deserves at least 6th place.

BEST SONG OF ALL TIME

My most favourite song ever! Owl City should be known for this rather than Fireflies in my opinion.

This song is so great and I don't know why it isn't higher. This song really shows how bad pop music is and how good alternative is! Owl City is the greatest musician ever! 'I'm dreaming of a life I once loved, so wake me if you're out there'

My favorite song EVER! I can't believe it isn't higher! The worst thing I have ever heard about this song is that the tone is too high (it is not! )!
