Ele-Jams: Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

Via on Jun 28, 2010

Home is wherever I’m with you…

Hello Elephants!!!

I’d like to introduce to you to my new favorite band, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.

Lead by Alex Ebert, the front-man from early 2000′s band Ima Robot, and his lovah, Jade Castrinos, the band is reminiscent of many 1960′s groups (my music expert friend, Eder, noted a strange parallel between the single “Home” and this oldie).

Some folks aren’t as stoked as I am about Edward Sharpe, but I think they are the perfect sound for my 2010 summer. Their music and lyrics ooze happiness and fun and silliness and love and joy. Which is something my playlist (and life) needs more of!

So check out this super groovy rendition of “Home” from one of my favorite music sites, Blogotheque! And just in case you want to sing along like I do, I posted the lyrics below. Enjoy!!

Alabama Arkansas I do Love my Ma and Pa
But not as much as I do Love you
Holy Moly Me oh My your the apple of my eye
Girl aint never loved one like you
Man o Man your 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

(Chorus)
Home, Let me come Home
Home is Whenever Im with you
Home, yes I am Home
Home is wherever Im with you

Lalalala Take me Home
Mama Im Coming Home

I follow you into the park, thru the jungle thru the dark
Girl aint never loved one like you
Moats and boats and Waterfalls, Alleyways and payphone calls
I been everywhere with you
Laugh until we think we’ll die, barefoot on a summer night
never could be sweeter than with you

like its only you and me jade/ebes your somethin to see

(Chorus)

Lalalala take me home
Mama Im Comin Home

Jade, you remember that night you fell outa my window?
ya you came jumpin out after me
well, you were bleedin all over the place and I covered your ass with your dress and we went off to the hospital, you remember that?
ya
well there’s somethin I never told you bout that night
what didnt you tell me?
well, while you were sitting in the back seat smokin a cigarrette you thought was gona be your last, I was fallin deep, deep in love with you, and I never told you till just now!

(Chorus)

Home, let me come home, home is wherever Im with you
Home, yes I am Home home is whenever Im with you!

Alabama Arkansas I do love my Ma and Pa
Yes Home, yes ward! home is whenever Im with you!
Home is whenever Im with you.

  1. love the song – I find it to be so evocative and sweet.

    On the other hand, I followed the link you posted to the song "Get on Home" by the Manson Family – and have to say that the similarity can't be coincidental. Creepy! But perhaps some sonic redemption for that vibe from the Magnetic Zeros.
