Some kind of lover - Jody Watley

'Some kind of lover' was the fourth single taken from Jody Watley's self-titled debut solo album. It was a relative failure, reaching number 81 in the UK singles chart, but it is one of the nicest funky tracks on the album.

These remixes were made by Louil Silas, jr., who mostly adds a lot of 'bounce' to the track. The 12" single features three versions of the tracks which are quite similar to one another. Still, good stuff.

My collection: 12" single no. 217
Found: Record Exchange, London, 1994
Cost: 1,5 pounds
Tracks: 'Some kind of lover (extended version)' / 'Some kind of lover (instrumental)', 'Some kind of lover (dub)'

  1. A relative failure? I think not. Some Kind of Lover was Jody Watley's third multi format smash hit in the U.S. from her debut album. Reaching #10 (her Top Ten Pop Single from her debut album) #1 Dance =#3 R&B Dance.

  2. Okay, so a relative failure in Europe then. But I don't think that needs explanation since this blog is European...

  3. Your blog did need clarification because it does not read 'European' nor did your comment make that distinction with regard to the chart success of 'Some Kind of Lover'from an American artist. Your blog, in America does not state it's a European blog, and clearly you were trying to make an erroneous claim. "Some Kind of Lover' was the 3rd Top Ten Single from her debut - and a multi-format hit in America - her country of origin.
