VOD: Phantom Planet's "California"
The song "California" is named not as a title, but as an address. Phantom Planet is singing to the place itself: "California here we come..." The band is somewhere on the 101, headed back to California. In the music and lyrics, you can hear the angst and pure desire to return.
