In honor of seeing Oz The Great and Powerful on Saturday I decided to dedicate today’s Music Monday to Mariah Carey‘s song for the movie, “Almost Home.” It’s a very understated song, which I like about it, yet it still shows off her vocal ability. I also chose it because I’m home for Spring Break so I thought the title was slightly fitting.
As I stated in my previous blog post, I loved the movie! The music video features clips from the movie between clips of Mariah singing with a very powerful wind machine, I might add. The song isn’t in the movie but is the very last song played in the credits, which is disappointing since it’s a great song!

I thought the song “Home” by Phillip Phillips would be appropriate for today since it’s the first official day I’m home from break. It definitely feels great having the semester behind my back and to go into the new semester. As long as it doesn’t snow this winter break, I’ll be one happy camper. But, anyway, back to the song.
Phillip Phillips is the most recent winner of American Idol and his style, from what I hear, is very similar to Mumford and Sons. I think the song is extremely catchy and the music video shows him on a tour bus riding down the rode and performing the song on his guitar. It’s not the most entertaining video but it definitely fits the song.
