Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros have a gift for writing commercial-worthy songs. You will recognize a handful of their stuff, but for today’s wedding music that doesn’t suck, I chose “Home”.  I think you will instantly recognize the tune, but it’s the lyrics that I invite you to take a closer look at.

The lyrics are perfect for wedding appropriate ceremony music, your first dance, or to have your photo slide show run to.  It doesn’t get much more adorable than this:

Holy roly, 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 nothin’ that I need

I’ll follow you into the park, through the jungle, through the dark
Girl, I’ve never loved one like you

Moats & boats & waterfalls, alley ways & pay phone calls
I’ve been everywhere with you

I am conjuring the most adorable first dance EVER in my mind right now. (This is probably sad, that I sit at work thinking about strangers’ first wedding dances …). I digress, just listen and let Edward & his Magnetic Sharpes take you away … home is wherever I’m with you …
