    Anybody have any idea how to pronounce this word? Is it possible (by way of typing) to explain the pronounciation of this word?

    I've never heard it spoken (or even heard the song), but my guess would be bal(rhymes with val)-oo-chit(rhymes with chip)-theri(rhymes with theory)-um(rhymes with bum). One other posibility I think of is the "oo" sounding like "you", but I doubt it.

    hey,

    i'm a portuguese speaker and it's pretty close to latim... it's spoken like this:

    ba-loo-key-te-rioom

    the strong part is the "te"... it's not spoken like tea... it's cut like referee... if we replace r to t teferee... the "te" will sound like that

    the "ba", sounds like the begining of ball, just cut the ll.

    here is the word boys!!!

    ------------------
    maybe i'm crazy,
    or just too high...

    i can't argue w/that ncle ted, since its close to the language you speak. i got my pronunciation from some kids discovery show on saturday mornings....i just happened to catch the word when i was flipping through the channels. the archaeologist said it like bal-oo-ki(short i sound)-theory-um. he may be right or wrong....who knows.

    billy007: You should definitely give it a listen. It's a great instrumental from Ed & the boys!

    Yeah, I gotta get the Sammy albums, 'cause even though I much, much prefer Dave, what people say - the worst Van Halen is still better than a lot of other bands - is right. And I gotta hear that "Summer Nights" song that everyone raves about!

    Yeah, I'm more of a Dave-era fan myself, but there's definitely some Sam stuff worth having (all of this is just my own personal opinion, of course). Without a doubt, I'd recommend 5150 and Balance. I wasn't too crazy about OU812 or FUCK. And yes, Summer Nights off 5150 is a great tune. Ed rips it up pretty good on that one. Balance also has some killer guitar work from the man on it. If you haven't heard Humans Being from the movie Twister (or BOV1), that's another great song with Sammy.

    Bah-luch-e-ter-e-um is the correct pronounciation. My Paleontological skills (I knew my major would come in handy on here sooner or later...) tell me that it was the largest land animal that has ever lived until the recent discovery of a new species that is perhaps two times its size. Damn, I feel smart! Oh wait, Val already told everybody the story of Baluchitherium on VHML didn't she? Damn, now I feel dumb again.

    The lyrics to "Summer Nights" are so so, but man Billy, just for the intro it's worth it!

    I always thought it was:

    Ba-loo-se-ther-rum

    But, I've been wrong before.
