Song of the Day #5,310: ‘The Kind of Love We Make’ – Luke Combs

The mid-30s on the year-end Billboard Hot 100 is country bro heaven. Yesterday we had Cody Johnson at #34, and today it’s Luke Combs’ turn at #36. Sandwiched between them is Walker Hayes, whose Applebees-lovin’ ‘Fancy Like‘ became a viral sensation after Hayes and his daughter danced to it in TikTok.

I confuse Luke Combs with Luke Bryan, and neither of them has ever appeared on the blog, so this will be my first exposure to one of the country Lukes.

‘The Kind of Love We Make’ is about sexy time — it’s the country version of a Barry White song. That sounds like an unlikely formula for success, but I guess it connected well enough to be the 36th top song of last year.

I find it hard to believe many babies will be conceived to this tune, however, so I don’t think Barry White has anything to worry about.

[Verse 1]
We’ve been burnin’ both ends
Keepin’ the lights on
So I’ve been thinkin’ we need
A little time alone

[Pre-Chorus]
So what you say we cancel our plans?
Tonight I’m only gonna be your man

[Chorus]
Let’s get some candles burning
And some records turning
All the lights down low
Take it nice and slow
The way your body’s moving
Keep doing what you’re doing to me all night long
Writin’ our love song
Girl, I want it, gotta have it
Let the passion take us to a higher place
Makin’ the kind of love we make

[Verse 2]
There ain’t no way, baby
To get me out this house
When you look this good
What could I even think about? Oh, oh

[Pre-Chorus]
Besides turn around and lockin’ the door
Watching your red dress fall to the floor

[Chorus]
Let’s get some candles burning
And some records turning
All the lights down low
Take it nice and slow
The way your body’s moving
Keep doing what you’re doing to me all night long
Writin’ our love song
Girl, I want it, gotta have it
Let the passion take us to a higher place
Makin’ the kind of love we make

[Bridge]
Kind of love we make

[Pre-Chorus]
So what you say we cancel our plans?
Tonight I’m only gonna be your man

[Chorus]
Let’s get some candles burning
Some records turning
All the lights down low
Take it nice and slow
The way your body’s moving
Keep doing what you’re doing to me all night long
Writin’ our love song
Girl, I want it, gotta have it
Let the passion take us to a higher place
Girl, I want it, gotta have it
Let the passion take us to a higher place
Makin’ the kind of love we make
Kind of love we make
Makin’ the kind of love we make

    I’m sure those in the baby making business nowadays aren’t doing it to Barry White or this song. This begs the question as to what the baby making song is of this generation. Thankfully. I have no idea.😉
