    Unchained

    After listening to unchained all these years and it's probably my favorite songs even though I like every song. I still don't know what in the hell they are talking about or what they mean? Is this just me, or is it the mistique of the song?

    I think it means your not chained down anymore, hit the ground running. Maybe that's why they opened with it a lot.

    I think that Dave is talking about how before VH was signed, there were alot of people that did not want to have anything to do with the band (I guess they had a bad reputation ). However, after the signing of the band and VH's continued success, all these people suddenly became friendly and wanted to jump on the bandwagon of the success of the band.

    I think that Unchained is about something to that effect.

    I never really thought about it. I just assume it's about changing, as the lyrics would indicate - "change, nothing stays the same..."
    .

    .
    VH with Dave ('78-'84) - The best years....the "real" VH.
    VH with Sam ('86-'96) - Incredible era....."We have renamed this town 'New Halen!'.
    VH with Gary ('98) - Fucking disaster. WTF was that??
    VH with Wolf/Dave ('12-'15) - Amazing comeback. Smokin' album and tours.

    Most of Dave's lyrics are quite different, yet very fitting. Somehow they work.....
    Reading the lyrics ya posted ,I assume he had a few lines and a half bottle of J.D. in him at the time.....

    Until they (VH) had a Fat City address, nobody gave them (VH) "the time of day." Dave is talking about people in the music business being two-faced. Maybe about people, in general!!

    I dunno. It sound good, though.

    I'm sure there is some meaning behind it. Just like Muff said in an earlier post, I also listen to VH mainly for Ed's guitar playing.

    More than likely a talkative, petite woman who spurned Dave's advances.
