Voodoo Queen -> Mean Street
Last Night -> Hang 'em High
Down in Flames -> You're no Good (in places)
Get the Show on the Road -> Romeo Delight (the taking whiskey part)

There's a guitar lick in a WB demo which shows up in 'Where Have all the Good Times Gone' but I can't remember where it's from right now. What else?

Isn't there a riff from Young and Wild that ended up in Where Have All the Good Times Gone?

I Wanna Be Your Lover from the early days sound similar to Outta Love Again to me.

I Want Some Action sounds a lot like Good Enough, and also a bit like Sucker In a Three Piece.

The riff at the end of Jump turned up again on Top of the World.

A section of She's the Woman was later used in the song Mean Street.

Yep the break in "Young And Wild" was used as the break on "Where Have All The Good Times Gone?" The end of "Young And Wild" is also the same ending the band used on "Dance The Night Away" live.

I believe a song that was leftover from "Balance" (don't recall the name if there was one) was later used for "Can't Get This Stuff No More." Musically that is.

Brett, it was Backdoor Shuffle that was used as CGTSNM.http://64.176.3.141/vhlforum/smilies/smile.gif

That's it, thank you. I think the interview in the recent Inside alluded to it. Oh Glenn I saw your comments were printed in the mag as well. Cool!

The intro to Show No Mercy became the intro to (gasp) Take me back(Deja Vu).

The Young and Wild riff--any relation to the Humans Bein' riffin'?

Man you guys are quick http://64.176.3.141/vhlforum/smilies/smile.gif I just went out for 10 minutes and happened to hit Young and Wild on the cd in my car http://64.176.3.141/vhlforum/smilies/smile.gif

"Young And Wild" is a cover, but I suppose Eddie could have adapted it a bit. I've never heard the original. Oh yeah forgot about "Show No Mercy." Duh!!! I was just listening to that tune too the other day.

A bit unrelated, but listen the the song Don't Call Us from the club days. The music in the chorus is the intro of I Feel Fine by the Beatles.

I don't think there is an original version of Young and Wild. It's done by Venus and the Razorblades, but I don't think they ever recorded it.

Nice call,Glenn,(what comments did you make in the INSIDE?),...I guess that's why they say,"Sound like John Paul Ringo and George...or whatever..."

Really, by whom? WHATGTG is a cover too so I guess that makes sensehttp://64.176.3.141/vhlforum/smilies/smile.gif

Jonathan, see Glenn's post, a band called Venus And The Razorblades did it, but I guess no recorded version exists.

Thanks Brett and Glenn, sometimes things happen too fast for me. I'm typing a one line reply and 97 people post in the mean time http://64.176.3.141/vhlforum/smilies/smile.gif

Oh yeah Bring on the Girls became Beautiful Girls in case you guys had never noticed http://64.176.3.141/vhlforum/smilies/tongue.gif

Speakin' akin to Green Eyed Lady:

Is there an April Wine tune that in the outtro you hear Satisfaction and Day Tripper?

Glenn

The ending of Voodoo Queen on the WB demo is the same as the ending of Hot For Teacher.http://64.176.3.141/vhlforum/smilies/smile.gif

Tight by DLR on the DLR Band CD was originally called Private Parts, and was unused in the Howard Stern movie.

Let's Get Rockin'(Aint No Stoppin')--that riff was used by Dave for Knucklebones or Bottom Line,me thinks......

Part of Ed's solo on "Superstition" from Covers Band From Pasadena ends up on "Eruption". And did anyone ever notice how the riff from "Hot For Teacher" sounds very similar to ZZ Top's "La Grange"?

kpl--I been preachin' 'bout LaGrange Part II forever...it's pretty much a given...and Van Rothin' covered it in the club days...LaGrange itself is actually very similar to Boogie Chillin' by John Lee Hooker...

Brett

I always thought the main riff to "Bottoms Up!" was dangerously close to "La Grange," especially when you hear Eddie play both of them.
