Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros are some hippies. The kind of hippies that love, love, love sitting in circles. The kind of hippies that tour the country in a school bus full of musicians, probably use unscented deodorant at best, and surely believe in spirits, energies, and shit that people who don’t understand politics, biology, business, or economics like to talk about. I’m mostly just joking, don’t get offended. I spent a good chunk of my life listening to mostly Phish and The Grateful Dead, and I couldn’t label all my own organs if you showed me an Invisible Confusion. Also, thinking about economics causes trillions of tiny aneurysms in my brain when I think about it.
Now I can say I hate hippies all day. Most days, that’s exactly how I spend the majority of my time. But the truth is, hippies have a way of making things so simple, so disconnected from the toxic “realities” of the world we live in. I could never live like that, but enjoying a little slice of idealistic hippie mentality is good for you angry, heartless assholes. “Home” is one of those songs that just makes you feel warm, like only a true happiness-loving hippie (or drugs/sex) can do. It makes you want to be in love like Alexander and Jade. As much as I hate hippie talk on a lot of subjects, I think they’ve got a better, more pure grasp on love than most people. I love this song.
The remix is cool too, but it doesn’t feel organic enough to match the mood. I’ll stick to the original. Check out the remix above, and I’ve posted it before, but fuck it, check the original below.
