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.

Take Me Home was Cher's first album of 1979, and was also her first album released by Casablanca Records. The record was produced by Bob Esty and Ron Dante, and most of the songs were written by Michele Aller and Bob Esty. This marked the beginning of Cher's brief venture into Disco music. Much to Cher's chagrin, she was pressured into recording an album of this genre. From the album came a major comeback hit, "Take Me Home". Cher contributed a self-penned song about her failed marriage to Gregg Allman on the closing ballad, "My Song (Too Far Gone)"

And you could actually get away with it because it wasn't porn, it was art, even though you'd probably still have to look away and whistle a merry tune while the clerk was checking it out for you at the counter
