Brainwaves – July 13, 2021 – Rip off or great indie pop?

Did Owl City rip off Marshall Crenshaw? You be the judge on this week’s show. Compare and contrast the theme song to the animated flick “Wreck it Ralph” with “Whenever You’re on My Mind” from 1983. Plus a “cloud” set with music from Cloud Cult, Cloud Room, A.C. Newman, Teenage Fanclub, the Rolling Stones and the Bangles.
