54/100, 55/100

I double dog dare you to watch this and not smile/sway/dance in your chair/clap your hands/want to get on an airplane and fly to San Francisco immediately. Oh, Blogotheque, you ray of sunshine and singalongs, you:



54, 55. "Home" & "40 Day Dream" by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.

Gah, I love Blogothèque so much. And living in Paris, I get my music blog plus get to practice my French. I've never really gotten into Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, but I could listen to "Home" over and over again.

Going to see ES & TAZ at the end of this month, and I Can't. Flipping. Wait. Warning: I will be waving my arms like a hippie.

Gahhhh! I hugely heart them!

Yay! Ever since hearing a dj talk about her experience at an Edward Sharpe concert- including the entire audience holding hands- it has been my mission to see them live. Next Thursday in Asheville I'll get to dance and sing and smile to these very two songs!

Yay! I was hoping you'd put "Home" on your mix tape! Thanks!

Adore this joyous music! "Home" has been on rotation for a few months now and recently added "40 Days"-- love.

This is the first time I already knew and really liked a song you put up. I feel cool now :)

Awesomeness!

So timely! Just heard them on a local radio show and have been listening to "Home" on repeat for the last week.

This is such a great song! Seems like I've been hearing it often lately. The other day I watched 'The Viscious Kind' and it was played in there and also you should check out this video from a wedding that someone put together that used this song. So Sweet! :)

My brother just introduced me to "Home" this weekend while out camping together for the first time in 9 years. Can't help but think of him and smile now when I hear it...

Mara Z | 11:27 AM

these are my two favorite songs of the moment. <3

My husband just watched this over my shoulder and said, "Those are some fucking GREAT beards." ;-)

@leel - my claim to fame? The man who I wasted an obscene amount of years crushing on before we both realized he was gay was Esthero's first grade school boyfriend. My solitary, sad-ass claim to fame. Hehehe.

Love you all!

I absolutely love this...my best friend and my coworker sang "Home" for me at my wedding a month ago since they know how obsessed I am! My friend gave out instruments to a bunch of the guests (tambourines, bells, etc), and everyone just went nuts, it was incredible!

Jenn | 8:45 AM

I saw these guys last month in Indianapolis, and for the encore, he got the entire audience (read: 1,000 capacity sold-out venue) to sit on the floor with him.

Amazing.

Who is WWW (for Fable's dresses)? They are adorable.

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros were my absolute favorite at this year's Coachella. When they did "Home," it was like the quintessential Coachella moment for me -- just happiness and dancing in the grass. I listen to that song in particular many, many days on the way to work. It's one of my favorite ways to deal with traffic. Thanks for sharing this video!!
