    This fucking little ditty Eddie does is AWESOME !! I always thought it would be a cool tune to do live , maybe start the show off with this song and Eddie and Alex would be jamming it with the lights off and Eddie would be making all of these fucking cool ass noises and it would get loud Loud and LOUDER and he would even have a can of beer against the strings . BTW , DIVER DOWN is a bad ass CD IMO .

    These days Eddie should probably just stick to a pop can.

    People that dislike Diver Down for it's covers should at least dig it for great stuff like Intruder, Cathedral, Secrets and Little Guitars.

    BTW, though Diver Down and VH II are probably my least favorite DLR era albums, they are the ones I'm most looking forward to hearing remastered. They are the two that I think are most in need of being beefed up.

    Besides it being a kick ass tune it has one bad ass title. Where the hell does Eddie come up with the titles to the instrumentals?

    I'm with you on this one Ed6150. Actually,
    the could've opened up the MTV VMA's with your idea. The place would have went nuts since it would have been a complete surprise.

    The intresting thing 'bout "Intruder" was that it wasn't even originally written for Diver Down. After they shot the "Pretty Women" video, they realized it was too long for the actual music. In true Hollywood director fashion, Dave refused to edit the video, so Ed and Al went back in the studio and created soundtrack music for the video.

    "Intruder" is a mini-gem.

    A great lead-in to Pretty Woamn, too.

    I was talking to Lead Synth just the other day about this. I told her that the sound of Eddie sliding the beer can across the strings sounds like Charlie Brown's momma, you know?

    And you know what Synth said?

    She never saw the old Charlie Brown cartoons.

    You guys know what I'm talking about?

    Think of eddie's guitar in "Intruder and then think of Charlie Brown's momma...

    Charlie Brown's Momma : "Woch woch woch... Wach wach woch woch woch..."

    (Jesus Christ, I hope someone out there knows what I'm talking about. LOL. I GUARANTEE you that track 5 knows of what I speak... )

    I don't remember Charlie Browns' mother speaking, but did she sound like the teacher speaking? I remember that.

    Anyway, I gotta go. Lucy is holding the football for me to kick.
