Music Monday – Home Again

Heidelberg, GermanyI love Elton John’s music and his new single, “Home Again”, is another winner for me.  I just heard it for the first time today, but it speaks to me.  For anyone who’s followed my blog for a while or read through enough of my posts, you know I’m an Army brat who graduated from Heidelberg High School in Germany.  Many, most of us Lions (the HHS mascot) consider Heidelberg our home, especially if we graduated from the high school.  I’ve wanted to make it back, but haven’t yet managed it.  Earlier this summer, the high school closed its doors for good, and just recently, the military community officially closed.  I’m sad, as are lots of us Heidelbergers…and we all spend our time “trying to get back home again.”

Home Again by Elton John

(released 2013; peaked #15 US Adult Contemporary)

If I could go back home, if I could go back home
If I’d never left, I’d never have known
We all dream of leaving, but wind up in the end
Spending all our time trying to get back home again

 

Vikki Carriger, one of our pride is going to be on X Factor this week and we’re all hoping to see her do well.  You can find her single, “In My Pocket”, on iTunes and AmazonMP3.
