What was the worst hit song of 2009? For me it’s not even close: “Fireflies” by Owl City. Sure it’s catchy — in a cloying way. It topped the charts and was the most downloaded song on iTunes, but I think it’s absolutely awful.
You would not believe your eyes
If ten million fireflies
Light 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 not stay awake when I’m asleep
‘Cause everything is never as it seems
What’s your pick for the worst his song of 2009?
