Trivia/Info

  • "This song has been largely rewritten from its original incarnation as a power pop tune off our live album Severe Tire Damage. Straight-ahead love songs are relatively uncharted territory for us, but we are very happy with the results here." - John Flansburgh and John Linnell in "A Song-By-Song Drive-Through Of Mink Car"
  • Regarding the lyric change from "other women" to "other people", Flansburgh noted: "My thinking was it was the 'women' part jumped out too much, and made it ABOUT gender rather than just relationships, so I switched it."[1]
  • The melody played after almost every chorus in the song is strikingly similar to a melody played on "Utopia Parkway", a song by Fountains Of Wayne. Coincidentally or not, "Another First Kiss" was co-produced by Fountains of Wayne's Adam Schlesinger.
