There is a song by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes, a song that perhaps you’ve heard. It’s called Home and I defy you to listen to it without a big-ass silly grin in your face. Rarely have I heard a song so filled with pure joy, sweet love, and unabashed happiness. It’s a song that captures all the best of my generation of music by shoving itself down your throat in the most fantastic way it possibly could. At the risk of overselling it, it’s one of the most lovely pieces of human music I know of and a fine example of what people do best when they combine talent, creativity, and happiness.
Drew turned me onto this song not long ago and Jessica, who is in fact blasting it as I write this, has fallen for it as well. The more we listen, the more we want to involve it in our wedding in some way. It might even find its way into our ceremony. It might even be the theme song to the wedding. First dance, perhaps. All I know is: we want it.
Man oh man you’re my best friend
I scream it to the nothingness
that we got everything we need
Hot and Heavy pumpkin pie
Chocolate candy Jesus Christ
Aint nothin’ please me more than you
Home, Let me come Home
Home is Whenever Im with you
Home, yes I am Home
Home is wherever Im with you
