OZZY OSBOURNE – “Mama, I’m Coming Home

“Mama, I’m Coming Home” is the third song on the 1991 album No More Tears by the English heavy metal singer Ozzy Osbourne.

A power ballad, the single is Osbourne’s only solo Top 40 single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, peaking at No. 28; his only other top 40 hits being his duet with Lita Ford, “Close My Eyes Forever”, and his feature on the 2019 Post Malone song “Take What You Want”, both of which peaked at number 8. It also reached number 2 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Tracks.

Two music videos were created for the single. The first was a surreal video that Osbourne disliked because he felt the video’s plot did not match the song’s concept. A second music video was then created with Samuel Bayer as its director, of which subsequently augmented Osbourne’s interest. Osbourne compared the effects in the second video to the hazy smoke effect seen in the video for Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit”, which was also directed by Bayer.
