Songfacts®:

  • Vincent Poag was born in the '50s, but didn't release his first album until 2011, when he dedicated himself to music. With a storytelling style in the vein of Randy Newman, he got some attention on YouTube and on radio stations with an eclectic bent. This song looks at one of those relationships that works despite (or because of) their differences:

    You select wine
    I order beer
    I peruse the food
    You atmosphere
  • Regarding "You Love Me," a track from his third album, Poag told Songfacts: "I was walking or jogging and must have loosened up some screws which got me thinking of how I might be not so easy to love with all my idiosyncratic behaviors. This set me off in the direction of pondering the undefinable attraction women and men have to each other, considering their polar opposite differences. Of course, all personal references in this song are hypothetical, except those that aren't!"
