MIX TAPE - Homebodies!!!

so this past week or so I've been busy here with my folks visiting. Tomorrow they're heading home, though. It's been a good visit and all that... but you're here for the tunes, so I'll save the recaps for next week.



Anyways.... I was watching the Olympics.. thinking about my folks leaving... or even just them BEING HERE... and it was pretty clear what this week's topic should be.


HOME.



whatever that definition of "home" is for you... maybe it's where you live now.. maybe it's when you're with your family... maybe it's a nod to the state or city you grew up in or near.


but the point is... everyone is from somewhere. Let's take a minute and suggest a song that evokes a feeling of 'home' for you.


One song, and one song only, gang.


new list will be up on monday!

"Dixie", or "I Wish I was in Dixie". No doubt about it. I'm a Southern girl through and through...w/o the Southern accent, though!

The flag on the video is backwards, but oh well!

Puff the magic dragon - Peter, Paul & Mary

When I was little, my dad would play this for us on guitar. Every time I hear it I think of him and home and my family altogether.

carolina in my mind by james taylor. you can take the girl out of the south, you can even try really hard to take the south out of the girl, but sweet tea and this song remain :)

Any classic rock makes me think of my dad working on or around the house on the weekends when I was young. But I'll pick The Beatles "Golden Slumber"

Don't ask why, but for me it's Meatloaf's Two Out of Three Ain't Bad. (My mom was really into Meatloaf when I was young.)

Anything by Crosby, Stills and Nash - but if I had to pick just one . . . "Teach your Children."

Can't wait to see the list! :)

Tough one, Carrie.

Cowboy Take Me Away by the Dixie Chicks.

No real reason. Just a song I fell in love with shortly after I moved home from college.
