Description
I'd intended to write a new song for my B'day like i usually do, but haven't been able this year due to a couple of health probs', but I'll intend to get back to writing soon. Hence my re-posting of this song, which is from three years ago and which I've tickled up with the de-esser and another couple of tricks. Here is the comment from the first posting as to how the song came about:
Looking through my old Reel to reels, I’d thought I’d found everything of use to me and also that I’d only written one song previous to arriving here at MJ (There’s no Tomorrow).
As I came to the end of those tapes I heard what remained of another song I’d once worked on and it was in a terrible state since it was literally at the very end of the tape and all creased through constant use. I could hardly hear parts of it and the background hiss, crackles and hum literally covered over a lot of the song. I had originally used a Hammond Rhtythm Unit and I tried to make a ‘loop’ from what was on the tape, but it was too distorted and parts of the lyrics were indiscernible.
I liked the song, though it was typical of the time (early 70’s) so I got as close as I could to the sound of the beat in the original by using GB drum loops and the vocoder setting on the bongos. I filled in lyrics where there were some missing and the result is this song, which I’ve been working on. It’s turned out to be Latin as opposed to the original ‘POP’ song, probably due to the Spanish midi guitar and the bongos I’ve added. Hope you like it; though it is a retro sound…

Lyrics
Two of a Kind

Although we know it, we never show it, ‘cause we’re two of kind
We love each other, there’ll be no other, ‘cause we’re two of a kind
Can you visualise, looking into someone else’s eyes?
I think that we are much too wise,
To throw away this lovely thing, that seems to make each day like spring,

This is our secret, so let us keep it, ‘cause we’re two of a kind,
Your hand in my hand, walkin’ in Loveland, yes we’re two of a kind,
We both realize,what’s the cause of all our sighs,
I think we’re oh, so very wise,
To see each day’s a new surprise, and know there’ll never be “good-bye”,

Instrumental
Can you visualize, looking into someone else’s eyes?
I think that we are much too wise,
To throw away this lovely thing, that seems to make each day like spring.

Like me, you know it, we never show it, ‘cause we’re two of a kind,
We love each other, there’ll be no other, ‘cause we’re two of a kind,
As we go through life, I’m your man and you’re my wife,
Cause we’re two of a kind.
Yes we’re two of a kind, yes we’re two of a kind, yes we’re …. two of a kind.

That cool Island Vib....
Too bad the Love Boat is no longer on the air. Definitely of that genre: smooth and easy on the ears and performed in your characteristic mellow/suave manner. Always a delight to hear your songs, Maurice. "Retro sound..." ??? How about Bach and Beethoven and Vivaldi? They are not yet passe; neither are your wonderful songs.

more "realness" from Mo. very catchy and is giving me the ear worm. i picture Paul McC. singing this on a '63 beatles album, sorta like Beseme Mucho style.

I like the breezy feel. One of those carribean/latin things right? Nice chord progression which allows the melody to shine in the right places.

I'm a big fan Maurice. Your music gives me a feeling of nostalgia and romance. Lovely latin feel and I like the electric piano. I think it's great that you brought a tune from your past to life again ... and it sounds great!

Nice groove! Does have a 70s feel - full of warmth in both the backing and the vocal. I feel I should be sitting on a banana lounge on the deck of an ocean liner drinking something with a paper umbrella in it and generally enjoying the music. Good one, Maurice.
