Gotta Go Home – The Song
‘Gotta Go Home‘ is a double A-side single by German group Boney M. It was the lead single from their fourth album Oceans of Fantasy (1979) and was the group’s eighth and final number-one single in the German charts.In the UK, “Gotta Go Home” was chosen as the main A-side, the single was their first one since their debut single not to reach the Top 10, peaking at number 12. Boney M. used the double A-side format over the next years, typically with the A1 being the song intended for radio and A2 being more squarely aimed at discos. The sides were usually switched on the accompanying 12″ single. “Gotta Go Home” was re-written from a German single “Hallo Bimmelbahn” (1973) by Nighttrain with the brothers Heinz and Jürgen Huth, both also credited as co-writers on Boney M.’s version.
The Pointing Finger And House – The Shape
This record has been modelled into the silhouette of a pointing finger under a house. Though lyrically the song sings about the need to go home I was inspired to model this due to the current COVID pandemic where everyone in the UK during lockdown is told to stay at home.
