    Default Secrets

    beautiful song, immaculately constructed - vis-a-vis harmonies, songwriting, lyrics, overall composition etc...and amazing solo from ed.

    I just really really like this song. lesser bands could have built a career on it. don't think I've ever seen it mentioned on here. just gets buried in amongst the rest of DD, somehow...

    Totally agree!
    Secrets and Little Guitars are such great songs but they have been overlooked somewhat.

    Beautiful song. Everything about it is golden.

    I hear this song and wonder why the Hagar ballads get such a bad rap. Halen can do love songs with ANY singer.....without question. This song is an undisputed CLASSIC.

    I remember during the DD tour, the Diamond One talked about how he came across the words on a greeting card he found in New Mexico and decided to write a song about it using similar lyrics. Not sure if what he said was true but it sounded kewl at the time when he was explaining how he came up with the lyrics.

    Plus it's right before the masterpiece Intruder!!!

    Intruder has got to be the most underrated tune ever.

    She comes like the secret wind
    Shes as strong as the mountains,walks tall as a tree.
    She been there before,she'll never give in,
    She'll be gone tomorrow like the silent breeze.
    Ah,ah,ah
    She got rhythm,
    Got that rhythm,of the road
    Ah,ah,ah
    She get crazy,
    She get crazy if she cant go
    Ah but ah,she just looking good.
    You know how sometimes,you got to rush,
    You're running blind,but she jumps the gun.
    Question is,not does love exist,but when,she leaves,where she goes.
    I got a feeling she dont know either,
    Wait like the wind,watch where she blows.



    I know where she goes......she has found me.

    That song has really grown on me. The band has always done a good to great job performing that live- Dave's vocal abilities really come out on that live as well. I hope they do that this tour. That's still within Dave's range to sing.
    Wolfie is not Mike, but he's more than ok.
    Mike is gone, but not forgotten. They played some amazing shows from 2007-2015; some people are in denial about it.

    I agree, but I think it's because the CVH love tunes just have a different feel to them that some folks just relate too more than the Sam era ballads.

    To stay on topic, Secrets has always been a favorite of mine, and it's been neglected for far too long. Easily some of the best work that all of them have ever laid to tape. Great vocals, killer solo, awesome percussion by Al, and a bouncy bass geetar by Mikey. I love it.

    This is one of them tunes that I usually forget about for awhile until I manage to hear it,and I like it a lot. Really underrated,although not a typical "VH style" tune.

    Good tune.
    Good thing to know:
    Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
