Pick of the Day: Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros – Home

“Alabama, Arkansas
I do love my ma and pa
Not that way that I do love you Well, holy moly, me oh my
You’re the apple of my eye
Girl, I’ve never loved one like you Man, oh man, you’re my best friend
I scream it to the nothingness
There ain’t nothing that I need Well, hot and heavy, pumpkin pie
Chocolate candy, Jesus Christ
Ain’t nothing please me more than you Oh, home, let me come home
Home is wherever I’m with you
Oh, home, let me come home
Home is wherever I’m with you La, la, la, la, take me home….”

Pick of the Day: Lord Huron – The Night We Met

“I am not the only traveler
Who has not repaid his debt
I’ve been searching for a trail to follow again
Take me back to the night we met
And then I can tell myself
What the hell I’m supposed to do
And then I can tell myself
Not to ride along with you
I had all and then most of you
Some and now none of you
Take me back to the night we met
I don’t know what I’m supposed to do
Haunted by the ghost of you
Oh, take me back to the night we met
When the night was full of terrors
And your eyes were filled with tears
When you had not touched… “

Absolutely Perfect Winter

“Snow is…a beautiful reminder of life and all its quirks. It makes me pause. Think. Stay still. Even my mind takes the hint. It makes me feel giddy. Like a kid. I bring my hot cocoa to the window and simply sit and reminisce…It brings me back to days of school cancellations and snow igloos and King of the Mountain games in my childhood neighborhood…That for this one moment in time, I’m not an adult with all the headaches that can accompany that responsibility, but instead, I’m still the girl in pigtails with the handmade hat and mittens, just waiting to build her next snowman.” – R.B. O’Brien

Perfect for morning cycling

“Be my desire
I’m a frustrated man
Summon us for peace
Do what we can
Feel my desire
Favor the bold
Some of us fall to the Earth
These others roam
Beseeched by desire
Come on baby
You played me out
You played me out
What looked like your chance to leave
But you played me out
So now I gave you up
It’s time for a change of heart
See my desire
No solemn moods
All of us are teammates
We stick to the rules
It’s a real life desire
Come on baby
You played me out
You laid me out
That looked like your chance to leave
But you played me out
So now I gave you up….”

take it with you …and have beautiful day

“Far, far away a train whistle blows
Wherever you’re goin’, wherever you’ve been
Waving goodbye at the end of the day
You’re up and you’re over, and you’re far away
Always for you, and forever yours
It felt just like the old days
We fell asleep on Beaula’s porch
I’m gonna take it with me when I go
All broken down by the side of the road
I’s never more alive or alone
I’ve worn the faces off all the cards
I’m gonna take it with me when I go
The children are playing at the end of the day
Strangers are singing on our lawn
It’s got to be more than flesh and bone
All that you’ve loved is all you own
In a land there’s a town, and in that town there’s a house
And in that house there’s a woman
And in that woman there’s a heart I love
I’m gonna take it with me when I go…”

“Last Of The True Believers”, in Munich, one more time

“If we are driving through the streets, past all the lights
That’s when we’re safe, that’s when we know we’ll be alright
If we escape the city, no one has to care
That’s when I know I’ll follow you anywhere
Let’s be alone together
Where the sky falls through the river
The last of the true believers
Let’s get lost forever
Are you hearing me?
Are you listening?
Only time will tell if you were strong enough
But no we’re older, I am certain of this love
Straight through the mist, would you want to walk with me….”

Gogol Bordello – Gypsy Auto Pilot

“I came back to my hometown incognito
To forget about it all
Suddenly, I heard “hey there papito-pito-pito
You don’t ever give a call”
Whapba bup bup ba
Whapba bup bup ba
Whapba bup bup ba
Whapba bup bup ba
Remember we used to skip school together
Said to me drunk girl, police man
Now, where have you been all my life…..”
