Oh, snap. Could we have a late-in-the-game contender for Song of the Summer?
“Fireflies” singer Owl City (a.k.a. Adam Young) has just released a new track with current Hot 100 queen Carly Rae Jepsen called “Good Time,” and it’s already stuck in our heads.
The song (available for digital download June 26) is a synthy, summery pop jam that would sound equally right blaring from a sandy iPod radio or out of monster speakers in a thumping dance club.
Lyrically, the song ain’t all that deep — basically the line “It’s always a good time” is repeated about 300 times, then chanted by some children, then repeated some more — but that’s okay.
With the production-friendly voices of Owl City and Jepsen, the instantly hooky chorus, and the “Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh” refrain, “Good Time” goes down easier than a frozen margarita at a beachfront tiki bar.

What do you think, Music Mixers? Am I caught up in a Katy Perry-esque rush of pop giddiness, or is “Good Time” destined for mainstream success? Sound off in the comments!
