"Let's get rich and buy our parents homes in the south of France" - Ingrid Michhaelson
I have become flat-out addicted to this song. Yesterday I listened to the last verse three times in a row.
It's just about the cutest thing ever, and reminds me of "If I Had a Million Dollars" by the Barenaked Ladies. Both songs innocently long for wealth that will give security, and the simple things in life. Really, the singers just want to be philanthropists, giving other people houses, cars, monkeys, green dresses... All they want in return is to bask in the comfort of true love.
So give a listen, and see if it doesn't make you want to "give everybody nice sweaters and teach them how to dance."
