Halp! Halp!!

Okay music lovers — I need to compile a CD of songs about home…. songs about wanting to be home, wanting to go home, loving home, loving family. I’ve used Google and my husband and a smart playlist on iTunes and now I need YOU.


The list so far:

our house crosby stills nash and young
homeward bound simon and garfunkle
this must be the place shawn colvin
suppertime johnny cash
home again carol king
home marc broussard
home, sweet home robin and linda williams
when I get home beatles
25 miles edwin starr
fixing a hole beatles
I don’t believe paul simon
I’m gonna be (500 miles) proclaimers
the long way home norah jones
this ole house bette middler


  1. How about “Home on the Range”?

    And by the way, ya’ll are welcome to come Memorial Day week-end. Just let me know your schedule.

  2. Home Life – John Mayer

  3. Our House – Madness

  4. Dock of the Bay – Otis Redding

  5. A Sort of Homecoming – U2
    (there had to be one…)

  6. Who Says You Can’t Go Home – Bon Jovi
    My Hometown – Bruce Springsteen

    I think that’s all I got!

  7. Hey It’s good to be back home again–John Denver. (Just pulled that one out of thin air. )

    Sloop John B by the Beach Boys (repeatedly says “I wanna go home,” “Let me go home”)

    “Sweet Home Alabama” by Skynard

    “Back To Georgia” by Loggins and Messina

    “Take the Long Way Home” — Supertramp

    You should have asked me this 15 years ago when I was a whiz at music!
    -Mary Lee

  8. You guys are the best! I knew I could count on you!

    Mary Lee – never say anything about “15 years ago” unless it involves playing with Strawberry Shortcake dolls or buying Bonnie Bell lip gloss. It makes me feel so OLD!! πŸ™‚

    Thanks again for all the great song ideas!

  9. You are NOT ALLOWED to put Skynyrd on a mix cd. EVER. Especially not a song about Alabama.


  10. Aw c’mon –ya gotta have some Skynyrd in there! πŸ™‚
