This story has been talked to death but being me, I do want to shine some light on it. Recently, some people realized that Owl City's "Fireflies" is scarily similar to Postal Service's "Such Great heights". It is undeniable and I'm taking Postal Service's side on this issue. We've all heard fireflies on the radio lately and it's song, vocal chops, are definitely the same as these guys, for the intro of the video. How about you decide who's side to choose on the matter? Are they different or alike? Some people, who clearly do not know a thing about music, have sided with the fact that they are completely different. Your eardrums must be weak.
I'm not saying, considering this could be an extremely tricky statement that could come back to haunt me, but the introduction of Such Great Heights is clearly reminscient (and it came out six years prior) to 'Fireflies'. I do respect Owl City and there are a lot of acts coming out like him that I love like Stephen Jerzak and NeverShoutNever! So take your side! Below are the two videos:
Funny story. You cannot find an embed copy/version of Fireflies ANYWHERE right now. Youtube it!
