I really like this song for some reason… I guess the abstract lyrics that really make no sense at all really appeal to me… hmm…

This weeks song is “Blue and Red” by Sky Sailing, in their [his] one and only album (of current) “An Airplane Carried Me To Bed”.

For those of you who don’t know, Sky Sailing is the Owl City before the Owl City. Adam Young recorded all the songs on “AACMTB” in his basement (like all his other songs), on his own, before “Of June” (the hit that started Owl City). I believe, however, that he recorded Sky Sailing AFTER his other “other projects” (think Port Blue, Aquarium, Windsor Airlift, Novel, etc etc), as these were recorded whilst he was in high school, and Sky Sailing was recorded whilst he was in his late teens or 20’s. The vocals in Sky Sailing, however, are recent: he re-recorded the vocals just before releasing “AACMTB” in 2011 (or 2010… but I”m pretty sure it’s 2011, because he released Ocean Eyes in 2010… anywho).

So sound is really nice in this song… lots of piano and electronic stuff… Sky Sailing is actually notorious for its mainly guitar, but this song has a lot of piano (or keyboard, same sound). It’s also kinda slow… the lyrics are so short because they are said very slowly and clearly, and are broken up with lots of music. It’s just a really nice song (:

Oh satellite above

(Where are you)

So many things I have to tell you of

(Please come back soon)

You went through an open door

Or a hole in the floor

You vanished and I can’t see you anymore

Dreams never die

When we sleep

Beneath the open sky

In the deep

Shades overhead

Of blue and red

Is this the end

Will you come back again

I searched beyond the clouds

(Are you there)

And I walked sadly onward through the crowds

(Alone somewhere)

And I saw beyond the blur

To right where you were

And I beheld a sight so pure

Dreams never die

When we sleep

Beneath the open sky

In the deep

Shades over head

Of blue and red

Is this the end

Will you come back again
