GO BACK HOME (Genre: EDM)

My son Leon recently sent me his latest EDM track that he had written and produced and asked me for lyrics and vocals. For this project I decided to team up with Tara-Lynn Sharrock from Australia and found out that she is not only a sensational vocalist but also a very talented lyricist. This is the first time we’ve actually written something together. As always, her vocal performance is awesome. If you ask me, the track sounds pretty fresh and radio-ready but the genre may not be your cup of tea. The song is called “Go Back Home”. Enjoy it. Feedback is always appreciated.

Lovely Robert. It’s a beautiful performance. About it being radio ready, while I think it sounds very very close, I think the vocals between 1:51 and 2:06 are too buried. It’s hard to make out her words (which is a shame). I love the vocal outro—it’s so pretty while still being very danceable.

You three sure do make an awesome team.

Hello Robert,

Thank you for sharing, this sounds like a pretty good song.  Leon is doing well with the EDM, Tara-Lynn always does well with the vocals and the lyrics she and you came up with are great.  Some of the lyrics are hard to hear in places, but I believe some post production work can take care of that.  Good luck to all with this song, and best wishes,


Speak soon,

Hey Jen,
thanks for taking the time to listen to this one. I’m glad you liked it. We’ll take another look at the section you pointed out. This one was really tough to mix - too many instruments and vocal tracks.
Mega-thanks once again!

All the best
Robert

P.S. Here are the lyrics

GO BACK HOME

Verse 1
Here we are
Reached that point again
Where we don’t know which way to go

Verse 2
We realized
Now it’s time to end
All the pain that hurt us so

Pre-chorus 1
Both of us need to be strong
Find a way to right the wrongs
Of a past we cannot change or undo

So let’s leave it all behind
And keep our love in mind
To reclaim the one thing we both know is true

Chorus
We should go back home, go back home, go back home, go
Together we belong
We should go back home, go back home, go back home, oh
Forever we belong

Verse 3
Here we are
Standing on the edge
Hand in hand we face the sun

Verse 4
We realized
And now we understand
This love of ours has only just begun

Pre-chorus 2
Pouring fuel onto the fire
Reigniting our desire
All the chaos of the past is far away

No more secrets we both keep
No more games of hide and seek
Seems the good times are finally here to stay

Repeat chorus

Music: Leon Baitinger
Lyrics: Tara-Lynn Sharrock & Robert Baitinger
Vocals & vocal arrangement: Tara-Lynn Sharrock
All instruments: Leon Baitinger

Hey Deacon,
thanks for the feedback. Leon is in fact doing quite well in the EDM genre. He’s getting around 40.000 song streams every week.

I’ve been working with Tara-Lynn for around 4 years. She is absolutely awesome. We’ll continue to try to improve the mix.

Every now and then I try to get the vocalist involved in the writing process. That works best when you have an unfinished track which was the case here. In the end, I’d say Tara-Lynn wrote more lines than I did. This young lady is extremely talented. I’m so glad our paths crossed here at this site. If you’re interested, I posted the lyrics above.

All the best
Robert
