It’s time for this week’s COVER SONG SMACKDOWN, this time with Owl City’s “Fireflies”. Three indie artists recorded videos of themselves playing pretty cool live covers of Owl City’s “Fireflies”, the #4 single in Billboard this week. (I’m actually a fan of this guy ’cause he’s a DIY musician…he recorded his entire album in his basement. Awesome.) Who’s version do you think rocks more? Check ’em out, vote below, and support a new artist with a little luv — it’s what the Cover Song Smackdown is all about.

Owl City – Fireflies Lyrics
You would not believe your eyes If ten million fireflies Lit up the world as I fell asleep Cause they fill the open air And leave teardrops everywhere You’d think me rude, but I Would just stand and stare. I’d like to make myself believe That planet Earth turns slowly. It’s hard to say that I’d Rather stay awake when I’m asleep, Cause everything is never as it seems.
