    Default From Afar

    best song on that whole record musically. (lyrically.... i dunno, but the music is freakin right on).

    that whole intro then the buildup and ed's got the delay happening.
    amazing song. if this was instrumental, i bet you 3 haters would even say this was musically one of their coolest songs.

    I have to agree...this song is the best on the album, and if Dave or Sammy had been singing it, it would have been an instant hit.

    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    I like this song sometimes...when I am in the mood. It's a mood song IMO. Just like when you want to listen to something like Pantera, Mr. Big, Extreme or Damn Yankees. It's not a balls to the wall rocking tune...it is different. Like what EVH said, it has to grow on you.

    Ya know, sometimes my mood calls for the Great White tune "Wasted Rock Ranger". Ya know what I mean.


    I will Love You From Afar is not in my mood right now. Classic is.

    Somebody Get Me a Doctor is in right now.
    Just go for it!

    Very strange song. My favorite part is the harmonies. Gave it a VH feel.

    I always liked this song... a departure from the norm for them. I'm not a big fan of the solo section though. It is different and kinda cool, but I feel something else would have worked better.

    Amazing song. Like the majority of VH3....Once, Without You, One I Want, Dirty Water Dog and Year To The Day.

    How the HELL can people even dare say Van Halen 3 is not a good, no AMAZING, album??????? Your not real Van Halen fans. Its that simple.

    Dude, chill out. We're all Van Halen fans, but we can have our own opinion. Balance is one of my favorite VH albums and I've heard people say it's their worst. But I think it's generally agreed by most VH fans that III is their weakest album.
