Saint Motel - My Type

Take a look around the room,
Love comes wearing disguises.
How to go about and choose.
Break it down by shapes and sizes.
I'm a man who's got very specific taste.

You're, You're, You're just my type.
You got a pulse and you are breathing.
You're, You're, You're just my type.
I think it's time that we get leaving.
You're, You're, You're just my type.

When there's loving in the air,
Don't fight it just keep breathing.
I can't help myself but stare.
Double check for double meanings.
I'm a man who's got very specific taste.

You're, You're, You're just my type.
You got a pulse and you are breathing.
You're, You're, You're just my type.
I think it's time that we get leaving.
You're, You're, You're just my type.

You're, You're, You're just my type.
You got a pulse and you are breathing.
You're, You're, You're just my type.
I think it's time that we get leaving.
You're, You're, You're just my type.

"My Type" is a song by American indie pop band Saint Motel. It was released as the lead single from their EP of the same name in January 2014. This song is about a man who loves all different types of people and has to have them all. Lead singer A/J said he wrote this song after having an argument with a “lady friend” who said that everyone was his type. Two music videos were made for "My Type". The first video was released on January 20, 2014, to coincide with the release of the song's 7" vinyl release. Directed by Sam Winkler, it features lead singer A. J. Jackson in a clip filmed at an Italian discoteca with Raffaella Carrà. The second video was released on June 12 and was directed by Jackson. This version takes place at a 1970s-themed house party attended by the band members and several other characters. As a news helicopter circles overhead, the characters experience sexual tension, eventually creating a wild, orgy-like atmosphere. Jackson described the video as "early '70s cigarette ads and New York street photography." and said "We didn't want it to be a period piece. Obviously, it's not if you watch it. It's not accurate to any time. Hopefully by not being accurate to any time, it serves all time—retrofuturism". Saint Motel made their late night TV debut on the Late Late Show, where they played this song. Greg Irwin admitted to Billboard magazine that the foursome were intimidated by one of the audience members, a certain Dave Grohl, who was a last-minute guest on the show. "It was like the sun," he said. "Don't look at it!!" The song featured on the soundtrack of the "Paper Towns" movie. A/J Jackson told The Huffington Post: "We're very fortunate to be on any movie soundtrack, especially this one, because it has such a good reputation for cool music."
