Story behind the song
“Gone With The Wind” is probably my most mentionable music project of the past 3 years. Last summer Lars E. Carlsson and Sören Skarback, both from Sweden, sent me their lyric and asked if I wanted to use it to compete in the Eurovision Song Contest ESC 2018. After competing in 2014 in Romania I found the idea challenging, so I composed a tune together with my son Leon, who then recorded all the instruments and produced the track on his own. We wanted to create a pop song that stood out by sounding slightly different, less mainstream. Tara-Lynn Sharrock contributed a stunning vocal arrangement and a beautiful vocal recording and we submitted the song in her home country, Australia, as well as some 25 other countries. Unfortunately, nobody was seriously interested. Maybe the track is not as good as I believed it was or maybe it’s just too hard to reproduce it live on stage because one would need a huge orchestra and almost a dozen vocalists. Whatever. I learned a lot, had loads of fun and now I have two new friends from Sweden and an awesome song that I can share with you here. I would like to thank everyone involved in this exciting project for sharing their awesome talents with me.
Lyrics
GONE WITH THE WIND (Lars E. Carlsson / Sören Skarback / Leon Baitinger / Robert Baitinger) There's a woman, she's watching the fires Of that old civil war on a screen And her courage is just what inspires me To see more of life than I've seen I'm a singer, you called me a starlet But I've never felt happy and free Miss O'Hara, that proud woman Scarlett Was a fighter inspiring me I will try to forget and forgive what's been done I’ll break the chains and bathe in the sun Chorus: By tomorrow I'll be gone with the wind I’ll be on my way By tomorrow I'll be gone with the wind Like dust blowing away I'm not Scarlett, I'm leaving today Got no cotton farm, no need to stay By tomorrow I'll be gone with the wind I’ll be on my way I won't look for some kind of Clark Gable 'Cause I'll never be Vivien Leigh But I trust in myself, I am able To do all I want, I will be me I´m no Scarlett O´Hara but I’ll fight just as hard I’ll get it right and won’t let down my guard Repeat chorus Gone with the wind Gone with the wind I'm not Scarlett, I'm leaving today Got no cotton farm, no need to stay By tomorrow I'll be gone with the wind I’ll be far away Gone with the wind Vocal arrangement & vocals: Tara-Lynn Sharrock All instruments & production: Leon Baitinger © Carlsson/Skarback/Baitinger 2017 www.robertbaitinger.de
