Owl City has been talking to MTV about his collaboration with currently ‘quite successful’ Carly Rae Jepsen on ‘Good Time’, calling it a “dream come true”.
Overthinking things ever so slightly, Owl explained: “I feel like every artist is inherently granted one shot to sing about having a good time in his or her life, and six months ago, I realized I hadn’t cashed in my chips yet.”
“So I thought, ‘I’m gonna sit down and I’m gonna give this a shot… And get my friend Carly to sing on it.’ The final product rarely exceeds your expectations, and this thing just kind of happened.”
Notice how he didn’t actually say whether ‘Good Time’ had actually exceeded his expectations.
Maybe it did. Maybe it didn’t.
“It was this whole worlds-collide thing, and it was this kind of dream come true. I can’t believe it happened,” he continued. “[It was] so kind to lend her talent to this song, so yeah, it worked out.”
We reckon Jeppo might have agreed to do it pre-’Call Me Maybe’, what do you think?
