Michael Bublé is a world-renowned singer who has brought back the signature crooning style of the 50s and 60s. He’s been compared to Frank Sinatra, and his fans adore him.
Michael doesn’t strictly do jazz and big band. He also does many pop songs like ‘Home.’ This performance sees Michael writing a letter while singing backstage at a concert venue.
He sings to his wife in a photo on the dressing room mirror. Later in the song, he walks through the beautiful theater alone. He walks through the empty seats while thinking about his situation.
He sings, ‘I’m just too far from where you are. I want to come home.’ These lines are followed by a tender guitar solo. Michael is singing and mailing a letter to his love. The smoke-filled streets have a large tour bus nearby.
The scene goes back and forth from the theater lobby to the bus that Michael boards. He sings in his final line, ‘It’ll all be alright, I’ll be home tonight. I’m coming back home.’
The emotional lyrics can be understood by anyone who has been homesick. Many commenters have noted that soldiers will especially connect with this song. Anyone who has ever longed to be with their loved ones will find comfort in this song.
While Michael notably sold over 75 million records worldwide, he can also be celebrated for keeping Big Band music in the spotlight during the 2000s. His appeal as an artist has made songs from the 30s, 40s, and 50s relevant for the next generation. Michael proves that he can also deliver a great pop ballad in this rendition of ‘Home.’
