Guess I’ll Go Back Home This Summer, sung with emotion by Mindy Jostyn, describes the complex feelings of nostalgia brought out by a return to your hometown. Mindy’s rendition evokes a more melancholic mood than the well-known Glenn Miller recording, and this change in tone gives some of the lyrics new meaning while also giving further poignancy to other lines in the song—such as the mention of an old flame—that otherwise might not have stood out as much. This song is from the album Blue Stories, a collection of bittersweet tales that combine pathos and humor to explore themes of love, loss, home, history, and repentance. It can also be found on The Winds of Change, a Watchfire Music compilation CD that is all about the future – and the past. It’s about the many inevitable changes we all go through every day of our lives. This song is one of 14 that each dig down into the illusive concepts of the changing landscapes of our lives and illuminate them to our hearts and minds.
