Positive Messages

"I'm finally where I belong/where I belong" and "I got a brand new mindset/I can finally see the sunset/I'm gonna call it home."

Violence & Scariness

Obvious tie-in to Disney and The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this song is popular on Radio Disney and was featured in the Disney movie The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. There's nothing inappropriate for tweens. Although Switchfoot is a Christian band, this song doesn't have any religious references.

Best of their work

I love the song Meant to Live by Switchfoot, but I love this even more. It is filled with great messages and encouragement.

A very good song.

This song is amazing!Swicthfoot did very good with this song.Switchfoot,being a Christian band,is perfect for Narnia.

What's the story?

"THIS IS HOME" is one of the few non-instrumental songs featured on the soundtrack from The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (it played during the end credits). This is a rock ballad.

Is it any good?

This single starts with a simple piano and slowly adds in the rest of the instruments' sounds to produce a feel-good rock ballad that builds momentum through the chorus. The song itself is just OK -- a bit generic and probably needs the visual impact of the movie to elevate it.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the Disney empire. How effective is their marketing? Why do you think they're such a tight-knit company? Why would a non-Disney artist want to be a part of a Disney project?
