Behind The Song Pt. 3 ~ Two Kinds Of Lovers

Welcome to the third post of our Socially Distant Storytellers Series! We recorded the entire record with Earle Mankey at his Psychedelic Shack in T.O. It was an honor and privilege to get to work with him once again! The recording was mastered by Guy Martin at Black Couch Studios, who is always a pro! The third track off the record is Two Kinds of Lovers. Take a listen and enjoy the story! We’d love to hear your feedback and answer any questions you have in the comments! Stay safe friends and enjoy your Tuesday evening!

Two Kinds of Lovers 

Well there’s only two kinds of lovers 

But there’s more than one kind of friend 

I looked at you outside my window 

But I didn’t know where you’d been 

East St Louis by way of West Texas 

Thought that’s where you wanted to go 

If I fall down... drunk one more time 

You’re at the top of the stairs, I know 

If I open door will you get in? 

I’ll open up the door just get in.

Well there’s only two kinds of lovers 

But there’s more than one kind of friend 

I looked at you outside my window 

But I didn’t know where you’d been 

I didn’t know where you’d been 

Didn’t know where you’d been 

Didn’t know where you’d been 

Didn’t know where you’d been

Behind the Music:

This was a fun one! Another story with some fun imagery. My favorite memories in the development of this song come more from the recording sessions. It’s an uptempo, strong rhythm that Rob nailed on both acoustics the first take! Not an easy feat. The scratch for the lead was so good, we ended up using the majority of it for the final mix. And the icing on the cake....getting our friend Hekar Rivera in there to play some violin! The interplay is awesome. He is one fine fiddler!
