‘Your Love Is A Lie’ was the first song that I heard from Simple Plan. I remember it playing on ‘Animax’ and it was one of those songs that got me listening to English music.

The song was produced by Dave Fortman who had worked with Evanescence, Slipknot, Mudvayne along with others.

He(Dave Fortman) was the one who actually felt the most excited about the record and making this different kind of hybrid. It was important for us to have a rock producer that could really capture the way we sound live but that could also, at the same time, embrace this new direction.

The band also took DJ Lethal’s help to produce the song.

On September 26th, we went to a studio in LA to work with DJ Lethal. Lethal was the DJ in House of Pain (‘Jump Around’!) and Limp Bizkit. Dave Fortman knew him from back in the day and immediately thought of him when we were looking to add loops and flavor to some of the songs. He ended up working mostly on one song ‘Your Love is Just a Lie’ but man did he kill it! He added an amazing beat and made the song so much cooler.

Song Review, Meaning and Story

The song is based on Chuck’s real life story and the heartbreak he felt when he came to know that his girlfriend was cheating on him.

He showed this track to her and she was like Damn… Is this going to be all over the radio?’.

Overall, I really liked the song. It was simple yet you could feel the emotions in the music. It was the song I used to listen to over and over when I was going through the same feelings in college.

Anyway, just wanted you to know about the song in case you didn’t know about it.

Let me know your opinion in the comments. Have fun, take care and bye.
