    Default between the two of us- VH Song!

    between the two of us. I think this tune never got leaked out. But if It did, dose any one know for a fact if so (between the two of us) if itís out there?

    anyone.

    Not to my knowledge although, I believe I read somewhere that most of that tune ended up being "Learning To See"...

    And others say it ended up being "Year To The Day".

    Love to hear the original.

    Between Us Two was the title, and Sammy never really gave an indication that it had been recorded or in any way finished.

    That said, this is much better suited for the Songs forum.

    The way that Sammy Hagar raved about Between The Two Of Us, I would hope that it didn't end up as either Year To The Day or Learning To See. Neither one of those songs turned out to be anything to brag about.

    Well, I rememeber when MELODICROCK.COM broke the story about the VH reunion...about this time, two years ago!!!! WOW

    It was hinted that the song "Between us Two", was one of the reasons the band was reuniting, to get that song released.
    I almost think, it was described as Dreams, meets Unchained.
    So Learning to see, which they did not release as a single, surely is not that song...and no way is it year to the day.
    I wonder if "Once" is it, it could of been recorded much heavier with Hagar.

    It wasn't "Once" for sure.
    Hagar himself said in an Interview that this (the music to Once) was a leftover from the F.U.C.K. sessions, and that Ed was crazy about that song, but Sam never understood why that was because he didn't liek it, so it didn't end up on FUCK.
    If I remember right that was the same Interview in which Sam said that some parts of the music for between us two was indeed used on Year to the day.

    If this is true, between us two will never see the light of day.

    Man, just imagine if VH never split with Sammy. We could've possibly heard Between Us Two/Closer To You on the next studio album.

    Musically, some of the music is in Year To The Day.
    Lyrically, some of the words ended up in Returning of the Wish (Sammy solo song).

    Nothing note for note or word for word.

    This has been discussed several times before and I believe all this info was in interviews.

    And no, regardless of anything, the song never will see the light of day. I believe it was finished but the producer (Fairburn, I believe) wanted 1/3 of the writing credits as he stated it was just Ed, Sam and him in the studio when it was written and both Ed and Sam got pissy and said "no" and shelved it.

    Musically, correct. Lyrically, incorrect.

    I have no clue whatsoever where the song went lyrically, but Returning of the Wish is not it. That leftover from F.U.C.K. was titled The Wish and was brought over to Red Voodoo, re-worked by sam. He apparenly changed his mind about the track as time moved on. But Between Us Two lyrically, did not go to Returning of the Wish. Imagine the 5 songs off that VH album that shouldve come out in 1996 with Hagar:

    Humans Being
    Respect The Wind
    Between Us Two
    On The Other Hand
    Would You Do It For Free?

    Between Us Two was supposed to be Van Halen's 'Stairway To Heaven', Sam said in Guitar World once. He also said in one interview that On The Other Hand and Do It For Free, which ended up on Marching To Mars, were originially VH tunes.

    And as for The Wish, rumor has it that it was Returning of the Wish lyrically, Once musically. What a great tune that wouldve been!

    Do It For Free wasn't a VH song, it was a direct jab at Alex. They got into an argument over Unboxed and the money involved and Sammy asked Alex if he would do it for free. When he got fired/quit he wrote that for a slam.

    Also, I just posted what I read from interviews and other people. Vince G. had some info, I thought. I may be off on the song but Sammy did use some of the lyrics in a solo song (if not directly, then thematically). Of course, none of us will ever know for sure (shame too).

    I just listended to Year To The Day,followed by Dreams and Unchained. First off, if this song really was some kind of Unchained/Dreams hybrid, it would've been incredible. Year To The Day has decent parts, but failed miserably as a whole.
    As for Would You Do It For Free being a jab at Alex, I heard that too, same as Little White Lie being a jab at Eddie. They both deserved it to.

    Default BUT/CTY

    For what I read about, "Returning of the Wish" was a leftover from the Balance recording session and it became "Once" on Van Halen 3 with completely different lyrics. The one released on Hagar's solo record, Red Voodoo, has just the title in common.

    But IF "Between Us Two/Closer To You" became "Learning To See", how could they manage to call it "the Van Halen's Stairway to Heaven"?
