An Interpretation Of The Song “Home” By Michael Buble

976 words - 4 pages

In March 2005, “Home,” a debut single by Michael Buble, was released in the United Kingdom. The song received a low promotion when it was first released. In fact, there was no music video released either. However, when Michael Buble’s second major-label studio album “It’s Time” was released three months later, “Home” had become the album’s second single worldwide. Fortunately, the song became a huge hit, reached a high chart position in Canada, and became successful in the United Kingdom. This time, the song was released along with a music video directed by Noble Jones. This song became part of the soundtrack of the film “The Wedding Date” (“Home”).
As a matter of fact, there are two cover versions of this song that have been released by other artists. One of them was covered by the Irish boy band, Westlife. That version was a top hit in several European countries. Afterward, Blake Shelton, an American country music singer released his version in 2008. The country version reached the top of the single chart of American country music (Hackett). Next, in December 2011, Buble performed the song as a duet with English singer Gary Barlow. That performance brought the song more popularity, because it became a worldwide trending topic on Twitter. Shortly afterward, the song was available for digital download and gained so much attention from fans.
The reason behind the creation of this song was Buble’s absence from his fiancée, Debbie Timuss, while touring. He expressed his desire to come home because he felt lonely. His success meant nothing because he was missing his lover, as described in the lyrics. His experienced yet provided him with another direction that he could possibly explore and expand upon. It was a positive step forward for Buble to add to his success.
We can interpret the lyrics to find out Buble’s feeling during his musical tour of Europe. As we can see in stanzas one through eight, Buble was feeling grateful to spend time at prestigious places in Europe, such as Paris and Rome. His presence at such well-known cities revealed that he had reached his success. However, time flies as seasons were changing and he missed home. He felt lonely in a crowded city because none of it compares to the warmth and comfort of being home. Besides, home could be anyone, anywhere or anything. In this case, Buble was feeling empty without his fiancée as he went through a long distance relationship. He wanted to go somewhere he felt he belonged. He simply wanted to go home and meet his fiancée.
Furthermore, if we take a closer look at stanzas nine through eighteen, we can find out more about Buble’s feeling. Buble wrote some letters and planned to send them to his fiancée, but letters do not really show his emotion. He wanted to...
