Let me tell you about one of the best days I can remember. A few months ago, three of my closest friends joined me in decorating my apartment’s white walls with washable crayons, and we tapped our toes with the music on shuffle as we drew. I’m telling you, the vibes were good — there was a chilly breeze sweeping through the window, there was original artwork being created, and we belted every song that came on, insisting each was our favorite. We really got into a groove.
So things went until the magical, uplifting moment when the song in the video above came out of the woodwork, a song that none of us had ever heard before. The beat sent a chill down each of our spines, we dropped our crayons, wide-eyed, and without saying a word we all sunk down to the floor and let Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros‘ “Home” serenade us into another world.
Since then, we’ve all been blasting this song everywhere we go, and we haven’t found one negative reaction yet! The video makes me lose the desire to shop at the mall or obsessively check Facebook on my phone. Instead, I want to run around in a field of grassy love and friendship and never leave.
What song has won your heart over?
