    Had this song on my mind a lot lately - nice rediscovery, really. Haven't really been one I've singled out in the past just was always there - my loss. Anyway, just wondering if anyone knows the origin of the title as at no time does Dave mention Romeo or the word delight. Anything ever been said?

    First of all, what a great song. In my top 3 with Unchained and MWM. Second of all some of it was lifted from the WB demo 'Get The Show on The Road' most notably the 'taking whiskey..' part.

    I always took the title to mean someone who lived for picking up chicks (Romeo) was going to be in their element at a party (delight) - but I'd like to here something more definitive.

    Is "Romeo Delight" 'Symptom of the Universe Part II'?

    Well the song title to me suggest some type of ladies man. So I think Dave was using it to present a mindset about the song....which is a dude trying to pick up girls. Just my guess.

    There are VERY few VH songs that don't mention the title in the song, I'd have to really think hard to find another. "Secrets" is another I just thought of.
