"Did You Get What You Want" is a song about the final phase of a couple´s partnership when he finds out that she is cheating on him. This sad story is told from a male perspective at a point in their relationship where he does not know how to move on. Feelings of anger, sadness, resignation, hope and melancholia are cleverly mixed together in this musical masterpiece. Robert Baitinger wrote the song in 1987 and Andrew Gold made it come to life when adding the finishing touches in the studio during the recording in 2004.

The production consists of strong rock and pop elements combined with extremely catchy melodies and a sing-along refrain. The lyrics are sensual and well-worded, with an excellent flow. Written critiques say the music has a strong pop appeal with a nice 70´s vibe that the listener won´t be able to get enough of. The emotional ups and downs of the described situation are brilliantly mapped to the musical interpretation of the song. The title is a perfect choice.

Andrew´s powerful lead vocals emphasize the emotional sentiment of the song and the complex background vocals from Andrew and Robert are expertly mixed. The musical composition is potent and lively with compelling musicianship that highlights the outstanding underlying melodies. The arrangement flows seamlessly with the progression of the song. The choice of instruments is excellent and the blend of rhythm and solo guitars really make the song rock. It is hard to believe that this production is a one-man show with Andrew Gold playing all of the instruments. The production has exceptional qualities from beginning to end. The song fits into the timeless Southern California mold pioneered by the likes of the Eagles, Linda Ronstadt, America and Jackson Browne, among others. Fans of this style of music will be very pleased with this song.

Andrew Gold, a pop star from the 70s (Lonely Boy, Thank You For Being A Friend) and former WAX member (Right Between The Eyes, Bridge To Your Heart) produced this song mid February, 2004 at QBRAIN Studios in his home near Hollywood, California. Andrew is famous for his instrumental and vocal virtuosity. He gave this production its distinctive West Coast sound.

Robert Baitinger, a songwriter from Germany has a collection of over 100 unreleased tracks. He recorded a demo version of this song at his home together with his kids and sent it via email to Andrew. Their common musical taste made it easy for them to reach a consensus whenever questions occured during the joint recording session.

In 2004 the song got repeated airplay time from various radio stations like Radio Hochstift, a local radio station in Paderborn, Germany, SWR3, the big German pop radio station and an internet radio station called ICON Radio in Liverpool. The overwhelming public response attracted the attention of the music publisher Wolfgang Jahn of NiWo Music in Essen, Germany. NiWo Music plans to release the single and make it available at the well-known internet platforms such as Finetunes, iTunes, AOL,  Musicload, etc. Andrew Gold also plans on including this song on his upcoming new album "Singer Songwriter". In this production Andrew and Robert call themselves "Rob B. featuring Andrew Gold". In the future they would like to team up again for another recording if they can synchronize their busy time schedules.
