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!
Home, Life, and Living.
