I first heard this song and thought, "Damn, what a catchy song!" It made me think of my girlfriend and how sweet our love can be, so I told her about it. She then proceeded to laugh at me that I liked it. Oh well. Great song, great girlfriend, but the 2 just don't mix. No problem with that!

I originally heard this song played on Letterman and I found myself humming it for the next week. Eventually I knew I realized I would just have to purchase it. Needless to say, I've not been disappointed. It's got a seriously Johnny Cash/June Carter feel with the enthusiasm of Rockabilly-meets-Phish. It's just plain fun!

i put this album in my car and since i only really know that one song from them (home) i figured i would just listen to it when they weren't playing music on the radio..and i find that im am listening to it all the time..the music almost seems folk-ie to me which i like..because its different . i really enjoy how they use a variety of instruments throughout the album its refreshing and different from most things i hear on the radio.

This is a fantastic song, and I'm glad that the commercials have helped it and the fine band that wrote it (Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes have a number of good songs in my opinion) to gain more notice.

I love the lyrics. They're unabashedly corn-pone ("Alabama, Arkansas/I do love my Ma and Pa") and sentimental ("But not the way/that I do love you"), and it's pretty impossible not to love that simple sincerity of the song. And it's impossible not to love the happy, familial spirit of the band. I also haven't heard very many songs in recent years with such a catchy and repeatable (and just hummable) tune.

I only don't give this download four stars because the album version does contain a "speaking intrusion" with Alex telling Jade a little story about falling in love with her. It's sweet, the sort of thing you might be surprised and thrilled to hear in a live performance of the song. Those sorts of intrusions always annoy me a little, for some reason ("If It's the Beaches" by the Avett Brothers has a bad one); I guess it's they just disrupt music, and that's what I'm listening for.

Anyway, I do prefer the live versions that I've heard elsewhere and online that lack this intrusion (i.e. their Letterman performance and their Tiny Desk Concert performance for NPR), and I look forward to one of them becoming available for purchase.

I personally prefer the David Letterman performance. Wish they would have turned down the reverb in this version. With that being said the melody is so catchy it is easy to forgive the smearing reverb. Buy it. Support indie artists.

There bis an anthem feel to it- it's one of those songs that make you feel determined. At one point they speak to each other instead of singing- and the lyrics are rather amusing. But overall, there is a fun quality that makes you keep it on the playlist. Again, with this band, there seems to be a country influence (not a fan of country music) but it doesn't exceed the twangy boundaries so it passes MY personal litmus test. Overall I like it.
