About Take Me Home

"Take Me Home" is a song recorded by American singer and actress Cher for her 1979 fifteenth studio album of the same name. A disco song, it was conceived after Cher was recommended to venture into said genre, after the commercial failure of her previous albums. The lyrics center around the request of a woman to be taken home by her lover. It was released as the lead single from the Take Me Home album in January 1979 through Casablanca Records, pressed as a 12-inch single. Music critics gave positive reviews of "Take Me Home", who highlighted its sound and melody. The single fared well in the United States charts, peaking at number eight on the Billboard Hot 100 and entering three of its component charts. In Oceania, it entered the singles chart of New Zealand at number 49. It was also a hit in Canada, reaching the top-ten of the singles chart. In 2001, English singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor covered the song for her debut studio album Read My Lips. It served as her debut solo single after being signed by Polydor Records. Her version contains new lyrics and a disco-tinged instrumental, and elicited a mostly positive response from critics; it also enjoyed commercial success. However, Cher was reportedly critical of this version, finding its lyrics too overtly sexual.

Take me home, take me home
Want to feel you close to me
Take me home, take me home
With you is where I want to be

Wrapped in your arms tonight
Just makin' love

So much in heaven (heaven)

It's the right thing to do
It would be ecstasy
