    Etch-a-sketch

    With the uprising of negative type threads in Main, I would like to make things a little fun around here.

    I would like to start a friendly discussion on what VH lyrics you may have misunderstood. All eras are free for discussion....

    I would like to start out with Little Guitars. Back in 5th grade a lot of us kids thought Dave was singing Etch-a-Sketch instead of Catch as Catch etc...

    Another thing that hasn't been discussed here in a while are the actual words that Dave sang during the screaming parts of Running With the Devil...ya know the parts during the chorus where NO ONE has actually documented what he is saying/screaming.

    Let's have some fun with this...what lyrics have you thought were different from the actual lyrics. Whether they sounded different to you, or they are not quite clear....post away.

    To this day i argue with a buddy of mine that during the breakdown of Hot For Teacher, I thought Dave is saying, "Oh man I think the clock is slow, I DON'T FEEL TURNING" (Like a clock turning) He said it's "I don't feel tardy". We could never prove who was right back in the late 80's. With internet technology we've figured out apparently I was wrong. I've listened to that song a million times, I still can't tell for sure.

    "GD woman I ain't gonna tell you one more time"...I think that is what Dave is shouting/screaming??

    Everybody Wants Some's 'moonbeam', much like Seenbad's sig and Dave's admitted uncertainty that even he doesn't quite remember what he was exactly saying, sort of takes the cake in terms of unintelligible Halen.

    Heh. My bud Steve SWORE it was Etch a Sketch for twenty years.

    I was six when 1984 came out, and my best friends older brother used to play "Hey - Hey MO!" all the time for us. When I was old enough to read, I figured out it was "panama". I still get shit to this day about it. What the hell did I Know, I was 6!!!

    Good stuff.

    At the very end of "Hear About It Later", the last line Dave sings I always thought he said, "I don't wanna feel like a fat kid...no, no, no, no, no babe."

    Here' the 8 second clip of what I'm talking about:

    VH with Sam ('86-'96) - Incredible era....."We have renamed this town 'New Halen!'.
    VH with Gary ('98) - Fucking disaster. WTF was that??
    VH with Wolf/Dave ('12-'15) - Amazing comeback. Smokin' album and tours.
