    Hey Loons...

    I don't disagree with you very often, but this is one song that I thought Dave could do without.

    I love when Dave gets blusey, but I didn't care much for the content of this tune.

    Always your pal,

    Rocket

    I didn't care too much for this one. I don't hate it but there are other songs on the album that really rock that enjoy more.

    I always liked this song. Post VH I really prefer Dave when he tries to go the bluesy route. It suits his voice better and I think it fits his personna.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

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