Cute, Like "Kittens" Cute 

I was minding my own business today, trolling around on the All Songs Considered site when I saw this post by host Bob Boilen. It's cute. Like, completely "kittens" cute, but without the kittens. Therefore, you probably have surmised that it involves a child. You would be correct.

I don't have much to add about a video of a dad and his daughter singing the Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes song "Home" other than if you are so modernly wearied and hardened that you fail to find this genuinely sweeter than molasses then you either are the pulseless Dick Cheney or may soon find employment with Blackwater Security.

Ok. I just watched this again, and damn, I don't think I could remember those lyrics. Additional cute moments: when they get to the chorus and the kid smiles (despite looking a little sleepy) then later says, "One day I'm going to whistle" is just the zinger. If you aren't familiar with Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes think of a slightly more Americana sounding "Dexy's Midnight Runners".
