Celebrate Me Home

22 08 2017

Met a friend yesterday who reminded me of the Kenny Loggins song, Celebrate Me Home.

Really an amazing study of dramatics and wordplay in how he touches on the themes moat central to life. Love, Sex, Death, Law and Order, all found in the phrases.

‘Come on and play my music, Let’s turn on the love light in the place.’ Both suggestive and playful while referring to discipline and logic.

Please, celebrate me home,
Give me a number,
Please, celebrate me home
Play me one more song,
That I’ll always remember,
And I can recall,
Whenever I find myself too all alone,
I can sing me home.

Interesting in these lines is ‘find myself too all alone,’ implying that being alone is a usual state, yet one can find oneself ‘too alone’ not a good place. Being in the company of others is one of the most important social skills that we can learn, and he draws on that knowledge with the lines, ‘Be what you want from me, I’m this strong, I’ll be weak.’

For my new friend, ‘Thank you for the memory.

‘Please, celebrate me home
Play me one more song,
That I’ll always remember.’
