What's the name of the fairly recent indie song with a lot of whistling in it and the line "I really care about you" in the lyrics?

Young Folks by Peter Bjorn and John doesn't have that exact line, but similar ones. And it sure as hell has a lot of whistling.

Along the same lines as i_am_a_fiesta's answer: Home by Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros has lots of whistling and similar lyrics.

Sounds like Young Folks to me.

Maybe you are hearing "And we don't care about the young folks" as "I really care about you"...?

This is what I was thinking, too, when I came in here. "Home is wherever I'm with you" could possibly sound like what you're thinking.

Even though the line is not exactly the same, when I read your question I instantly thought of "Home" by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes as well.

Response by poster: Yes, I think it is the song that has the line "And we don't care about the young folks" as "I really care about you"--the song starts (and I believe ends) with whistling

Response by poster: It is Young Folks by Peter Bjorn and John--thanks much!
