    Default "She's My Machine"

    I was listening to this tune before, and for some odd reason, it has always reminded me of Hagar-era VH if you can believe that. Not sure why...but it does. I wonder what Dave was going for musically at this point in his career? To me, this album is when it really started to go downhill for Dave as a solo artist. But I did like "She's My Machine."

    Well it does give a good idea of what a new DLR/Halen tune would sound like.....but it didn't bring Hagar to mind.

    Oh the other hand, "Yankee Rose" sounds suspiciously like "Dirty Water Dog".

    Hmm. Never thought of that before. Now that you mention it, there is an uncanny resemblance. "I Want Some Action" mixed with "Yankee Rose." I wonder if that was done on purpose.

    For a bit this September/October I started to get big into DLR's solo songs. But after time, they become very boring and dull. Songs like California Girls Velvet Rose Going Crazy Sensible Shoe and She's my Machine seemed amazing to me, I played them over and over on my iTunes. But as I soon grew tired and moved onto different songs to obsesse over, I find it funny whenever I run into a DLR song it's hard to listen. Aside from classic's like California Girls most of the songs bring back bad memories of my ex girlfriend who I was dating when I first found the gold mine of songs. I'll prefer Sammy Hagar Give to Live over any DLR solo song to this day.

    "She's My Machine" was probably the best song off of a weak album. I saw DLR on that tour and it sounded great live.

    I used to have the world premier radio broadcast for YFLM and Dave did a short live set at the end. Big Train was great, lots of energy and I was really excited to get that song on cd but when I bought it it just didn't come across the same, never really dug "machine" that much and never really got into the rest of the disk...

    I was listening to the radio tonight and a Phil Collins song came on. She's My Machine came to mind because in that song, Dave's timbre sounds somewhat like Phil's, IMO.

    I remember watching the video on Beavis and Butthead.

    Pretty good song, except I could have done without Dave yelping during the solo.

    Funny how people hear different things. This is maybe my least favorite song on the disc, I always skip it.

    Hated YFLM when it first came out, I still preferred my music on the harder side without much acceptance of anything else. As I have gotten older I pretty much like everything (except hip hop) and have really come to like this album and Dave's solo work in entirety a lot more.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

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