    Default "Up for Breakfast" discovery

    I have no clue on whether this has been discussed, so sorry if I'm rehashing here (search indicates not).

    Anyway, I was listening to a compilation tape of VH boots that a customer made for me when I was selling guitars back in the day. One of the songs on the tape is called "Act Like it Hurts." Not a bad tune, but I noticed at the very end of the song, the outro is EXACTLY like the outro in "Up for Breakfast." It's a bit shorter, but it's the same riff. Just thought that was kind of neat.

    You'll find that Eddie borrows from himself on many occasions, most notable example being the end of "Jump" and the main riff from "Top of the World".

    Eddie uses the same outro riff from UFB in Cabo Wabo too. Only its slower in Cabo Wabo.

    The end of "Black and Blue" is very similiar to "This Planet's on Fire" by Sammy. I think it's almost identical.

    Ed also uses the same D to E transition on the outro for One Foot Out The Door. He's also been in love with that C# to E transition since back in the day.
