    Default VH Recorded Mistakes

    Since we have all listened to all of the VH songs a million times over the years, I thought it might be fun for us to point out all of the recorded mistakes that we have picked up after repeated listens—things the casual listener would not immediately notice. But things VH definitely were aware of but decided to leave in.

    I’ll point out one to start with. This one has bugged me for a long time and should have definitely been fixed. In 5150 the song after the solo break, I think (I haven’t listened to it for a while), Alex clearly falls out of time with the high hat and has trouble finding the beat again. Every time I listen to that, I cringe. Thinking, “How could they leave that in?”

    I've always wondered about "Everybody wants some" when Dave is interupted during the middle of the song when he starts with "I like" then Ed's guitar chimes in, then Dave says "I like the way the lines go up her stockings".
    If that was planned or not I wish I knew.

    Van Halen recorded mistakes? I'd say a little thing they titled III.

    On "When it's Love", when Sammy goes, "Ohhhh, when it's love... Ohhhhh, you can FEEEEEL it..." I don't know. I always thought that that note, even though it sorta works, wasn't meant to be. Sammy was reaching higher, and cracked.

    I noticed that on Feels So Good Alex misses a beat on the hi-hat during the intro of the song. He comes in fine but then one of the hi-hat hits is off, like he missed the hat totally. I used to think it was intentional but after further review with a drummer friend of mine we came to the conclusion that it was a happy accident!

    Not so much a subtle fuck up, but I've always thought the entire Loss Of Control sounds completely fucked up. I don't think the drums and guitar fit together at all. This song makes me cringe.

    There's actually a lot of them... Ed says that Where Have All The Good Times Gone during the solo you can hear he missed those harmonics at the end of the solo. Of course the biggest is Oh Pretty Woman they missed an entire section of that song.

    That's the cool thing about VH, they left imperfections on the record.

    He does the same thing in 3 of the bootlegs I have...so I think it was a mistake that was made out to be a "normal" thing.
    Just go for it!

    Isn't their a part in Bottom's Up where you can hear laughing? I think the song is cool because of it though.

    Who can forget the end of FWYS on the BOBW. Oh, wait that was on purpose. Everytime I listen to that song it still pisses me off. I asked Alex about it at the 5 star and he told me Ed just missed it because he was so busy. I mentioned Alex's comments here in my review of the show, and then a week later their is an explanation about the song on the official website that made me look like a damn liar. I still think they screwed up the ending of that song.
