Sounds Like Home

Home is more than just a place. It’s the people you surround yourself with, the memories you create with others — a feeling.

Bielinski Homes wants to encapsulate every meaning of the word “home,” so our team has put together a playlist of songs that sound like home to us. Here are eight of the tracks that bring us all a little closer to home.

Track 1: “Family Reunion” by Jill Scott

Suggested by CEO & VP Paul Bielinski, this song encompasses what nearly every family goes through — the good, the bad, the ugly, and everything in between. What is family without the parallels of love and disdain, fun and accidents, and a well-rounded atmosphere full of celebration? This song’s imagery takes you right back to your own family memories.

“It’s something you’ll want to listen to on repeat,” Bielinski said.

Track 2: “Our House” by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

“Our House'' is popular amongst our team members here. What draws people in is how the lyrics paint a cozy portrait within the first line of “I’ll light the fire.” According to Senior Maintenance Technician Karl Aschenbrenner, “Our House” reminds him of sitting by a bonfire with friends and family while enjoying the weekend. While Sales Manager Michael Cellini can vividly picture sitting around a fireplace with his family.

Track 3: “Mama, I’m Coming Home” by Ozzy Osbourne

Ozzy Osbourne’s 1991 hit brings back memories for Construction Manager Shawn Clendenning. He said, “This reminds me of the first house I bought with my wife, Tammie, and when we started our family.”

This is one of three songs Clendenning suggested that has a tie to his children. All of which bring back the memories of celebrating his sons by dancing and singing in the living room.

Track 4: “Take Me Home” by Phil Collins

This tune is all about how home is somewhere people long to be, and it is one that brought tears to Controller Lisa Reimer’s eyes when she heard Phil Collins belting it live in an arena full of people. “It was the last song he sang, and at that beautiful moment, I thought I may never see him again,” Reimer said. It’s this glorious moment that cemented “Take Me Home” in her heart, forever reminding her of home.

Track 5: “Our House” by Madness

“If you’ve got kids, the home in this song is your home,” said Application Architect Amy Holzinger. Madness really captured the feeling of a chaotic but genuine home life. By mixing the lyrics with a fun beat and a catchy chorus, the song rings true to life: there is love amongst the mayhem.

Track 6: “The Long and Winding Road” by The Beatles

Melancholic but beautiful, “The Long and Winding Road” is all about returning home to the one you love most. After a long journey, a short trip away, or a strenuous week at work, there is nothing quite as soothing as coming back home to the place you feel most comfortable, safe, and loved.

Track 7: “Home to Me” by Josh Kelley

The message behind “Home to Me” is that home is wherever you are with the people you love. Home isn’t always a physical place, instead, it can be the people who you love the most. This ditty makes Executive Administrative Assistant Leah Busse think of the “love of her life” — her dog, Vida.

Track 8: “Jack & Diane” by John Mellencamp

“I remember the first time I heard ‘Jack & Diane,’” said Regional Property Manager Becky Cottreau. “It was 1982, and I was 11 years old. My 5th-grade teacher, Mr. Faulk, would let us bring records into school and play them during class. My best friend brought [Mellencamp’s] album in one day. I thought I had died and went to heaven.”

This memory struck a chord in Cottreau, who later went on to art school thanks to experiences like this. “Jack & Diane” brings her right back to that childhood listening session.

Music knows no bounds, and neither does the definition of home. To listen to more songs that inspire the Bielinski Homes team, check out our Spotify playlist.

  • When we rightsized from our home of 43 years to a Bielinski Condo in Bay Pointe, our New Home Consultant answered all of our questions and communicated with us the entire way. We’re fully enjoying our beautiful new home and the condo community.
    John and Jean Jones
  • I’ve been so impressed and completely satisfied with the entire Bielinski building experience. From the initial sale and throughout the construction process I have appreciated Bielinski’s professionalism, craftsmanship, and follow-through.
    Heidi Hamilton
  • We are extremely happy with our new Bielinski Condo. It’s well-built and full of all the features we wanted in our home.
    Deborah and Brian Blackney
  • We chose Bielinski because they are a family-owned business and have been building in the Pewaukee area for a long time. The Clemont floor plan is just perfect for all of our family events and Packer parties.
    Bob and Darla Landgren
  • We couldn’t be happier with our new home! The entire process was fantastic. Everyone was so responsive and quick to help. Bielinski’s knowledge of the industry was invaluable. We recommend Bielinski to anyone looking for their next home.
    Mike and Kristin Smith
  • We had a really good experience with Bielinski from start to finish. Everyone was responsive and reliable. Now we are enjoying life in our new home.
    Peter Holzwart and Therese Gaynor-Holzwart
  • Once I got settled in, I knew I was exactly where I belong. Without Bielinski’s knowledge and communication, I would still be questioning whether I should build at all. Thanks to the entire team that made this all possible.
    Barb King
  • We have just purchased our third Bielinski Home in the last 22 years, a Bielinski condo. We have found that Bielinski Homes builds quality homes for fair prices. The craftsmanship of construction and finishing is exceptional, plus they make the buying and building process easy with great customer experience. We would strongly recommend a Bielinski Home.
    Jerald and Jeanne Filut
  • We absolutely loved working with Bielinski Homes — the kindness and knowledge they shared sold us on wanting to move to our new neighborhood. We were worried about moving. But we had no doubts in our minds after speaking with our New Home Consultant about the community and the neighbors. We couldn’t be happier with our new home and new neighborhood.
