"Celebrate Me Home" as written by and Kenny Loggins....
Home for the holidays,
I believe I've missed each and every face,
Come on and play my music,
Let's turn on the love light in the place

It's time I found myself,
Totally surrounded in your circles
Whoa, my friends

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.

Uneasy highway,
Traveling where the Westerly winds can fly,
Somebody tried to tell me,
But the men forgot to tell me why,

I gotta count on being gone,
Come on woman, come on daddy,
Be what you want from me,
I'm this strong, I'll be weak

Please, celebrate me home,
Give me a number,
Please, celebrate me home
Play me one more song,
That I'll always remember,
I can recall,
Whenever I find myself too all alone,
I can make believe I've never gone,
I never know where I belong,
Sing me home.

Please, celebrate me home,
Give me a number,
Please, celebrate me home
Play me one more song,

Celebrate, celebrate
Celebrate, celebrate
Celebrate, celebrate
Celebrate me home

Please, celebrate me home,
Please, celebrate me home,
Well I'm finally here,
But I'm bound to roam,
Come on celebrate me home
Well I'm finally here,
But I'm bound to roam,
Come on celebrate me home
Well I'm finally here,
But I'm bound to roam,
Come on celebrate me home
Please, celebrate me home,
Please, celebrate me home,
Please, celebrate me home,
Please, celebrate me home,
Please, celebrate me home,
Please, celebrate me home,

    General CommentA good song for our travelers, college students, and our troops who are lucky to celebrate the holidays with their families.

    My InterpretationI think this song is just an anthem for everyone who is away from their loved ones and is going home soon, whether they have a long distance job, they're in college, or they are part of the troops.

    General CommentThis is one of my all-time favorite songs. It reminds of all the holidays we spent growing up at my maternal grandparents' place in Grayling, MI. It was just a silly two-bedroom house, but we'd oftentimes cram up to 20 people in that place for holidays, especially Christmas. Everybody was of the thinking, "Give me a blanket and pillow, and where am I sleeping?" NOBODY CARED! We were all together. For dinner, we'd set up tables in the living room, the kitchen, a little dining area, wherever. We were all within earshot, anyway. This song brings all those happy times flooding back, and oftentimes reduces me to tears. If my fiancée and I ever have enough money, I'm going to buy that place, just out of general principle...

    General CommentThe message of this song for me is that no matter how successful we are in our goals, we should learn to come home and celebrate our greatness with our love ones. And we should learn to acknowledge the success we just had.

    Song MeaningRe: the meaning of "Gimme a number"
    1. He could be asking tor a place in line at the bakery or meat counter. I guess that expresses the feeling of wanting to be part of a group, but the feeling of the song is about being with friends, not anonymous strangers, so it doesn't make a lot of sense.
    2. He could be asking for a celebratory joint, spliff, doobie, as in "Pass me that number." But the context of the following lyric seems to suggest the third option:
    3. "Number" could refer to a song. This is reinforced by the immediately following lyric, "Give me one more song..." So he's asking for a number, a song to perform? The most logical answer, but it seems a bit screwed up emotionally to me. As if "give me one more song" is a request to be moved, inspired, so that he will write a song about it - this song, in fact. But to call it a "number," as in performance, that's troubling. Like the whole thing of being home with loved ones isn't really genuine, but rather just grist for his ego as a performer, one more song, one more "number," to perform. Maybe really diehard Loggins fans are so into him that they don't mind this, but it puts me off. I'm hoping for:
    4.Some other interpretation? Anyone?
