Best In Me updated! Click here to read the update and here to start from the beginning!
Most of the songs Steven rattles off are original songs by their band, Electric Daydream. However, and most importantly, “On Top Of The Universe” is not.
On Top Of The Universe is a love song by the wonderful band, Steam Powered Giraffe. They’re a small band out of San Diego California and a huge inspiration for Best In Me as a comic. In fact, it’s no exaggeration to say that Best In Me wouldn’t exist if not for the band. Literally!
We’ve asked if it’s alright to reference a few of their songs in Best In Me, as Electric Daydream was, at its beginnings, a cover band specifically for SPG, and we’ve been told that this is perfectly fine.
That being said, please go check them out! Their music style is fantastic, and for a group of eccentric automatons, their performances are great.
On Top Of The Universe, at least in its official form, is no longer on Youtube, but can be listened to on Spotify.
