    First time poster here. [img]graemlins/bounce.gif[/img] Longtime lurker, but please excuse me if I ask a question or cover ground already worn out.

    I have heard that Dave dated Christy Turlington for a while back in the day. Is this true, and if so, are the lyrics to "I'll Wait" about her?
    Gotta say, if so then I would have to believe that that song touches on a far more personal note than Dave was ever known for.

    Anyway, looking forward to the conversation, I think my girlfriend is getting sick of me talking about this band!

    A lot of people don't like this song, but I love it... [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    It was ridin' high on the radio my senior year in high school; I remember one spring day in particular when it was just gorgeous outside; me and a buddy skipped that day and went down to the riverfront in my old truck to blast the stereo, look at the bikini's, turn up a few cold ones and light up some scerb! Every time I hear that tune, I think of that day, and what a great day it was [img]smile.gif[/img]

    I don't know if Dave ever dated Christy Turlington. I highly doubt the song was written about her. Christy was 14 in 1983 - the year the song was written. I don't even know if she was modeling yet. I always figured Dave was singing about a guy. Dave references the magazine "Heartbreakin' Motor Drive" in the song. That is an infamously gay magazine featuring naked dudes posing with muscle cars.

    Dave always said the song was about a Calvin Klein's model wearing mens' underwear.

    I alway loved this song. I love the sound of the keyboards and the solo. Another VH melodic rock tune that doesnt sound "wimpy", IMO. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    I really like this song too! Way underrated as is the album. I was 11 when the record came out and had heard about Van Halen and had seen posters of this badass group but hadn't really heard much of them. Maybe Runnin W/The Devil and Ain't Talkin Bout Love but nothing to any extent. This album introduced me to them and made me a fan for life went back and bought or traded for the rest of the back catalog. Still have it on vinyl too!

    Dude, those aren't the lyrics!!! Here are the lyrics.

    You can't imagine what your image means
    The pages come alive
    Your magic greets everyone who reads
    Heartbreak in overdrive

    That's how rumors get perpetuated. Please, be more careful in the future.

    Peace.

    Keep up the good work. Why is there no smiley smiley of an icon absolutely pissing itself with laughter? Inquiring minds ...etc
    A man could lose himself in a country like this.

    I know it's a huge stretch, but I'll Wait is Van Halen's Stairway to Heaven.

    I wish anyone who hates it could feel what I feel when I hear it.

    There's something enchanting and trance-like about that song.

    It's almost like the church organist rocking out.

    I think the songs about Phylis Diller.

    "I'll Wait" is such a cool song,its so new wavish and the lyrics made Dave sound like he really liked a girl rather than uh...showing her the best part of a man.That song sounds so Eighties that i love it,an underatted ditty.
    The question is not, "Does love exist?"
    But when she leaves, where she goes?
    I got the feelin' she don't know either
    Wait like the wind, watch where she blows
