    Fort Minor - Where'd You Go (Owl City / Adam Young Remix)

    Adam Young of Owl City today released an unexpected remix of the Fort Minor track Where'd You Go. The remix features the original vocals of Mike Shinoda and Holly Brook (now known as Skylar Grey) with production from Adam Young. Check out the remix below along with what Adam had to say about it.

    Although I do not choose to advocate crude language in the music I personally create under the Owl City moniker as a representation of myself, I am very fond of this song and its message as written brilliantly by Mike Shinoda. While this remix features my production and musical contributions, I did not have any influence over the lyrics. I am merely a great admirer of the original song and I deeply respect how it addresses societal issues regarding certain types of men (military members, professional athletes, touring musicians, and those separated/divorced) and how their lack of existence in the household damages families.

    I really like this remix. Good to hear Owl City admire's Mike's work. Maybe Owl City is remixing a track from Living Things?

    As I said in the shoutbox ... someone should have told him about the clean acappella since he objects to harsh language. ;P

    I really like this remix. Maybe even more so than the Joe Hahn remix. 0_o

    I like this remix, the song is still light, and not worse than the original

    There's a clean version where Mike raps alternate lyrics over the song instead of the explicit language.

    He doesn't advocate crude language and therefore had to write out an entire diatribe about how he had no influence on writing the lyrics... Wow. Fuck that.
    The cycle repeated as explosions broke in the sky
    all that I needed was the one thing I couldn't find
    And you were there at the turn waiting to let me know
    We're building it up to break it back down
    We're building it up to burn it down
    We can't wait to burn it to the ground
    The colors conflicted as the flames climbed into the clouds
    I wanted to fix this but couldn't stop from tearing it down
    And you were there at the turn caught in the burning glow
    And I was there at the turn waiting to let you know
    You told me yes you held me high And I believed when you told that lie
    I played that soldier you played king And struck me down when I kissed that ring
    You lost that right to hold that crown I built you up but you let me down
    so when you fall I'll take my turn and fan the flames as your blazes burn

    Wow I'm surprised. When I saw that it was Owl City I was like fuck this but this is actually really good. I like the energy in that beat. I don't mind that he wrote about how he was against crude language. It's something he believes in and he's got good reason. It doesn't matter that he's just being safe. And Owl City is actually from Minnesota

    Maybe it's because I've never been a fan of their music... I don't know. His comments just seem like he put his music on a pedistal, thus himself as well. Like he's too good for it. I understand what he said about the message of the song, but, it's like he was saying this: "Yeah, here's the song. My music is better because I don't use naughty words in it. Just so you know, that's my music, but not my words. The bad words are bad, but the message is nice."

    A big part of me here is screaming "Shut the fuck up, you self-righteous ass and say 'here is a remix of a Fort Minor song.'" No need to drag it out like he did.

    To be fair, didn't Linkin Park used to pride themselves on not writing curses into their songs? I remember seeing an interview from around 2005 with Mike and Chester and Mike was talking about how he was cussing on Fort Minor like it was a big revelation.
