    aaaah, van halen's last great song... some may argue with Me Wise Magic, but not to me... HB was just an in your face, ass-kickin' tune that i havent heard from them since...

    I love that song. Edward's work was most excellent.

    Dead on! How ironic that it was arguably their best song (their last great one at the very least) that caused so much discord within the band and may have led to the end of the Sammy era part 1.

    it's just sad to hear that song (VH on top of their game) and then list to "It's about time" or another of those 3-songs they did... big difference... i understand that they hadnt played together in 8-years or something, but man, what a disappointment those 3-songs were...

    humans being story for ya....
    That song came out when i was in high school. One day i was late for the bus so my dad had to drive me to school. Since he worked second shift, he was sleeping and understandably pissed when i woke him up. Well, he basically yelled at me the whole way to school. We pulled up just one minute before school started, and humans being came on the radio. The song had just come out, and in a moment i'll never forget, i went to get out of the car and miss this great song. My dad told me to stay and listen to the song. We jammed out, made me late for school, then he apologized for being an ass. Parents are very cool sometimes.

    Yep, its a great song.
    After hearing Balance and not liking it at all, I thought VH were all but finished. Then I heard Humans Being and thought "They're back, bigtime!!!!" And then...well you know the rest.
