Home was first released on March 28, 2005, as Bublé’s debut single in the United Kingdom. It received a relatively low promoted release, as at the time, the lead single from It’s Time, Feeling Good, had only just been released in other territories around the world. As such, it underperformed heavily, only peaking at #162 on the UK Singles Chart. No music video was released either. When the album was released three months later, to much more widespread success and critical acclaim, it was decided that Home would be released as the album’s second single worldwide, accompanied by a re-release of the single in the United Kingdom. As such, the second time around, the single was a massive hit, topping the adult contemporary chart in the United States, reaching a high chart position in Canada, and peaking at a relatively successful #31 in the United Kingdom. This time, the release was accompanied by a music video, directed by Noble Jones, who had previously filmed the video for Feeling Good. The song was also used in the film The Wedding Date.
Subsequently, two cover versions of the song have also been released as singles by other artists. The first of these was recorded by Irish boyband Westlife, whose version was a top ten hit in several European countries. American country music singer Blake Shelton also released his version in early 2008, which reached the top of the American country singles charts. In December 2011, Bublé performed a duet version of the song with English singer-songwriter Gary Barlow, whilst also performing Barlow’s “Rule the World”. The performance gained great reception from fans, when it began trending worldwide on Twitter. Soon after, a petition was set up for the collaboration to be made available for digital download, to challenge for the UK Christmas Number One spot.
“Home” centralizes on the male narrator, who is separated from his lover, possibly his wife, while off travelling. He expresses a desire to return home and be with his lover. Bublé had been away touring in Italy when he co-wrote the lyrics, for his then-fiancée, Debbie Timuss. Bublé describes his loneliness from missing her in the lyrics. Aaron Latham of Allmusic, in his review of It’s Time, described the song favorably. He called it a “positive step forward” for Bublé, adding “The success of this ballad provides yet another direction that he can explore and expand upon.” (source: Wikipedia)
《Home》选自Michael Buble的专辑《it’s time》，亦是电影《Wedding date》的插曲。在这首歌里，Michael Buble温暖阳光般的声音，带着些慵懒和淡淡的温柔忧伤，丝绒般柔滑的声音，不经意间就触动我们心底的那一份思念，让我们产生共鸣：尽管身处繁华都市，周遭人潮拥挤，因你不在身边，因离家那么远，却仍然感到孤独寂寞，如同活在别人的世界里。我想回家，现在就启程，今晚就到家。哦，家…… (选自《日暮乡关何处是》http://www.u148.net/)
