Can A Song Connect you to Home? (Series) Bon Jovi, Tesla

Do You Have A Special Song?

“What song  makes you think  of home? It doesn’t have to literally be about home. Just a song that somehow embodies the concept for you.  It makes you feel at home in some way”.

Today, this question popped into my head out of the blue.  Curious to ask someone, I posed the question to a friendly acquaintance. He is an eclectic and talented individual who, after taking some time to think about it, was happy to  share his thoughtful response.  It went something like this:  (I am paraphrasing)

“First, my mind started to go to my childhood home, then to my current home, although I’ve moved a lot, which brought me to the idea that home is where you bring it. So home is what makes me comfortable. That’s when I thought, Tom Petty. He makes everything better. Then I thought about it a little bit further, and another song came to mind: Caught up in a Dream, by Tesla… It’s a hard rock band that is totally positive and uplifting. Then, finally, I thought of a song by Bon Jovi: Welcome to Wherever You Are.  That song is basically about acceptance, and believing that life has brought you exactly where you need to be right now, so embrace it.   To me, home is a place you want to be and return to even when you feel crappy. Both of these songs make that happen for me.”

A great definition!  So here are the two links.  I had never heard either of these songs before.  If there is a song that answers the above question for you, leave a comment with the name of the song and I will see if I can include it in a future post!

  1. I don’t listen to the songs, cos I read at work and that would just be annniyog to the rest of the orifice. (Also, I may be a bit thick, but when I have tried to listen, couldn’t fathom out how!)I do, however, usually read what you have to say about the songs. I have to admit that I have never heard most of them, but it’s always good when I have.Anyway, what would you replace it with? My suggestion weekly pug update.

    1. Hello Khairul. Thanks for the comment, I appreciate the visit! If you want to listen to the songs, all you need to do is click on the arrow on the screen with the image. If you ever get a chance, listen to a few of the songs – they are good. Actually, for many of those music posts, they are songs that are new to me as well. Thankd for the “Pug Update” suggestion. I don’t know much about pugs, so that might be an interesting area to research and post in the next while. Let me know if you have any suggestions on what updates might include. Take care!
