    'Big Trouble' is one of VH's best unreleased songs. Why this didn't make an album, God only knows. Would have been better than 'Dancing In The Street' or 'Could This Be Magic?'.

    The coolest thing about that song is that the bass is just JACKED UP in it. Sadly, had they actually recorded it for one of their albums the bass would almost surely have been toned down to the detriment of the song. I'm not sure why VH has always been so bass un-friendly, but listen to the December 20, 1977 gig; those songs all sound amazing with Mikey THUMPING away, really loud in the mix.

    Great song BTW. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    IF I am thinking of the correct song, (I'm not a bootleg collector or expert) then the song really didn't quite fit into the other material at the time. It was a little more 'modern' than the other tracks they had done, and from a record company perspective, may have confused people about the band's sound and style.

    And if I've confused it with another song, disregard my post. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Big Trouble is my favortie unreleased VH song EVER. A real shame more people weren't able to enjoy it, by having it on one of the official releases. hell I think they should have left Dancing In The Street off of DD and replaced it with Big Trouble.

    Big Trouble is my favorite unreleased song. I think it could have fit on Diver Down or 1984. Other songs like Eyes Of The Night, She's The Woman, and Put Out The Lights should have been released too.

    I don't like the song much, but I think it would've fit best of VHII...replacing something like Outta Love Again.

    I will agree, should be released. Along with a few others from the demo disk I have heard ("Thats all Folks").

    I say dont replace anything, just release it; with Dave singing of course.

    Yeah, thats it !!

    Yeah it didn't need to replace anything, they had room on their albums for an extra song or two, which amazes me that this tune never saw the light of day [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img]

    Probably my favorite unreleased as well, right next to babe dont leave me alone. I dig the bass on it as well, like Glenn mentioned.

    It really would have fit best on the first album. Could have been released as the single for Diver Down though. I sure wouldnt mind dancing in the street being dropped to put it in.

    Here are the lyrics from JMTyler's DLR Page:

    Ooh La La!

    Who's at the door?
    Tell me who's that knockin'
    You're dead for sure
    Do a little bit of talkin' please

    Better lock that door
    And hear him shout
    He knows the score
    And now he's in for doubt
    Big Trouble

    So dry your eyes
    My little friend
    Another time
    Come back again

    Wooh!

    Big Trouble...Trouble!
    Big Trouble...Trouble!

    Put on your drawers
    Go and see him
    And lock that door
    He's knows that's really you

    To be so clever
    We think alike
    We'll die forever
    Be still tomorrow night
    Big Trouble

    So dry your eyes
    My little friend
    Another time
    Come back again

    Uh oh!
    I'm out the window

    (solo)

    Big Trouble...Trouble!
    Big Trouble...Trouble!

    So dry your eyes
    My little friend
    Another time
    Come back again...

    That was fast!

    Thanks seen, I wasn't sure what Dave was saying, I couldn't make out the come back again part.

    There isn't a lyric sheet for it for me to check it obviously.
