    Source of Infection. Man this song has great energy and of course great guitar playing but the lyrics are just lame as hell. What was Sammy thinkin'? Was he thinking? It's obvious Sammy didn't put much energy into this song. IMHO.

    I agree Van Gully. This is perhaps my least favorite original VH song and it's not because of the music.

    Those lyrics----ugghhhh!!

    Yup, the lyrics to both of those songs are bad. It's funny too, because I think songs like Mine All Mine and Cabo Wabo have some of Sammy's coolest lyrics, and then on the same album there are some real stinkers.

    It may have been #1, but boy are the lyrics stupid in "Jump." I think Eddie's music protects alot of VH bad lyrics. A few to mention:


    "Big Fat Money"
    "Sucker in a Three Piece"

    I'm not too fond of "I'll Wait" either.

    "I wrote a letter
    and told her these words
    that meant alot to me"

    I dunno, maybe it's just Dave's delivery on this line but it always seemed clumsy to me.

    I'm surprised "Spanked" hasn't been mentioned yet.

    Actually, I recall watching late night tv for about a year before that cd came out. I remember seeing those commercials; I thought the song was rather funny. It was the MUSIC of Spanked that didn't do much for me. But the lyrics I found to be a comical commentary on how low tv was beginning to stoop.


    As for WORST lyrics, I'll pick one song for each singer.

    Dave: Loss of Control
    Sammy: Sucker in a 3 Piece
    Gary: Fire in the Hole
    Don't bark at me...<b>I</b> didn't name ya.

    Big Fat Money kicks ass [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img] Loss of Control is just as disunderstandable. [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img] Worst lyrics? A Apolitical Blues, but that isn't an original. I'll agree with Jump. Some weird lyrics.

    Even though it's not Van Halen, the song 'Dick In The Dirt' by Sammy Hagar has the cheesiest lyrics of all time. It's off of the 'VOA' album.

    I know that one Raldo---It's pretty bad.

    Glenn, you have a great point there: Lyrics from Mine All Mine and Cabo Wabo are some of Sam's best, yet on the same album you have Source Of Infection.

    For me there is just something the way Dave puts words together...it's so non-linear, very metaphorical...they could mean something different to everyone, which is what makes his lyrics so timeless, intriguing, and unique.
