    Is one of my favorite Van Halen songs off all time . When i first heard it ALONG time ago I thought Hmmm ....Mellow tune with a nice laid back intro .

    Then Alex kicks your ass with that drum roll and the song takes off from there . Excellent background vocals and Dave also sings the shit out of it .

    IMO , this is song reminds me a little of Zeppelin but much better . It simply blows Stairway to Heaven away .

    Another one of those awesome Van Halen songs that most music fans have probably never heard of. It would be a great one to hear live on the next tour, I bet it would confuse a lot of the people who pay to see a Dave/VH reunion concert.

    I think it's really good too! It would be great to hear it live on the next tour. It should have made it on The Best of instead of And The Cradle Will Rock.

    Yup, that song rocks! I think that song has the best bridge(songwriting term) in it and I think those words in that bridge are the best lyrics Dave has ever made!

    One of my favorite songs off one of my favorite VH albums! I especially love the breakdown in the middle: " ... and I heard bells ringin', I think I heard an angel sigh, and she'll say ..." Perfect song to end the album with.

    It's kind of like Van Halen's "Stairway To Heaven."
