“Home” by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, an Anthem You Want to Keep Singing

I should have killing off all of my deadline—writing and editing, books and magazines—now. I only get less than two days to tackle them down. But here I am instead, writing things that I love about this song, Home by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. Well, I guess, sometimes, you need to push yourself to stop, to fight with you own self just to hit the wreckage brake, take a slightly break, so you won’t hit that damn invisible tree, right?

Okay, what do I love? Let’s start with the whistling, the melodies, the strumming guitar, the beat of the drum, the trumpet, the harmonica, the way Jade Castrinos and Alexander Ebert sings the lyric–as if it’s amusing to finally say the words to each other.

And in the streets you run afree, like it’s only you and me
Geeze, you’re something to see

Then the lyrics. The chorus part. Man, a human brain is so fascinating isn’t it? How could a line consist of six words could be an anthem that help you temporarily shut down others annoying thoughts? Also the bridge part, the conversation between Jade and Alexander. It taste sweet you couldn’t resist to ask one, one to share that sentiment.

What’s to dislike then? None.

Alright, since my deadline won’t go away unless I do something about that, I’ll leave you to hit the play button and sings your heart out loud with Jade and Alexander now.

Enjoy! Weekend is a day away from you now, love!
