My Family Home and The Immigrant's Song
These two songs are based on Paul Tracey’s experiences in his homelands. My Family Home is a nostalgic, lilting, melody about returning to the family home in South Africa. The lyrics skillfully paint a picture of well-remembered sights, sounds, and even smells of the countryside. The chorus is sung in the Fanagalo language. The song conveys the spirit of the composer who revels in the culture of the people and the land. The Immigrant Song, from the show “The Great Briton,” portrays an immigrant, like Paul, who prefers to “live my life in the good old U.S.A.” Paul’s sense of humor is revealed in the amusing lyrics. The key universal themes are Enduring Values, Transformation and The Human Family.
