Facts- The song paints the story of a mysterious person walking down train tracks, reading a letter "from his home" crying. Later, the person supposedly gets on the train, as he is 900 miles from his home.
The song creates a very dark and somber environment, resulting that the "narrator/singer" in the song sounds almost suicidal.
Folk music was believed to be created during prehistoric human times, though it came back with a very large influence in the early 20th century.
Folk music is considered music that is usually played by ear, written by anonymous composers, and uses more raw sounding instruments.

Parts- 3 (Soprano, Alto, Baritone)
Facts- Micheal Buble is a Canadian jazz singer
Haven't Met You Yet is about a guy trying to find the right love for himself, and how he tries to stay optomistic. The ending of the song makes us believe that he will keep waiting, but is accepting of his situation.
This is one of his two original songs and his first single on his fourth album Crazy Love.
Buble got the inspiration when he met a girl who couldn't speak English that he took his fancy with but she already had a lover.
This was the first single made by a jazz crooner to reach the Top 30 Billboard singles since 2003.
The song won Single of the Year in the 2010 Juno Awards.
