    In A Simple Rhyme

    this song is so rockin', i think dave, ed and mike shine on this song and the harmonies are so soothing and angelic haha (didnt think id describe a van halen song like that) but anyways I think the thing that stands out most for me on this song is Alex, he totally tears this song up. the intro with the snare (awesome pattern) and his ride patterns with the snare like during the part where dave sings 'but i was young and i was far from lonely ect..' man thats a creative part just for a verse/going into chorus.
    haha sorry to rant i was just listening to it, and just had to give alex credit ( i play drums as well). I hate how Alex gets overshine by his bro, but both are greats of rock & roll, probably the best, yup definitly the best

    One of the top five Roth era songs, hands down.

    I threw that song a comp CD i made for my girlfriend (who already knew and liked the song). Her sister (who had no prior VH knowledge what-so-ever) liked it so much that she took the cd until I made her a cd with that song on it. So I put that one first and the rest was all CVH and now she totally loves CVH.

    Great tune!!! Love the harmonies. Glad that somebody else gives Ed props on harmonies. Everybody talks about Mike but for 4/5ths of the VH harmonies there was Ed singing the major or minor 3rd.

    Great guitar tone. But then when was there bad tone from Eddie?

    The song is a masterpiece, nicely hidden within the fine tuneage.
