7 Songs to Play After Closing on Your New Home

Loan officers work hard to make the process of buying a home as easy as possible. But it’s still a tremendous undertaking, from collecting the necessary documents to deciding to commit such a large sum of money on what may well be your largest investment ever.

So when you finally close on your new home, we recommend loading up your MP3 player (or, if you’re old school, burning a CD or making a mixtape) with these seven songs to kick off your celebration!

From all of us at First Bank, congratulations on buying your new home!


Home – Edward Sharpe and Magnetic Zeros

Relevant lyric: “Home is wherever I’m with you.”


Homeward Bound – Simon and Garfunkel

Relevant lyric: “Home, where my thought’s escaping, home, where my music’s playing, home, where my love lies waiting silently for me.”


Closing Time – Semisonic

Relevant lyric: “Closing time.”

The song is more about a bar at closing time than a home closing, but with a title like “Closing Time,” we had to include it!


Home – Phillip Phillips

Relevant lyric: “Cause I’m gonna make this place your home.”


Take Me Home – Phil Collins

Relevant lyric: “Take, take me home.”


Our House – Madness

Relevant lyric: “Our house. In the middle of our street.”

If you say you don’t like this song, that’s simply Madness.


Looking Out My Back Door – Creedence Clearwater Revival

Relevant lyric: “Look at all the happy creatures dancing on the lawn. Bother me tomorrow, today, I’ll buy no sorrows. Doo, doo, doo, looking out my back door.”

This song will help you think of your home as a really fun place.

We wish you all the best with your closing. And if you aren’t quite there yet, get some expert home buying advice at First Bank today.
