    Song Question

    How come on "I'm the One" the band is not doing the "shoo-be-do-wa part in the middle of the song. Mohegan they just added some words.

    Anybody?

    Was at Charlotte and they did do it - was at Toronto 10/12 and they didn't. Don't know why - like it better when they do include it.

    I agree on this one. I listened to the Charlotte boot and the "shoo-be-do-wahs" are there and they sound great. I was disappointed (slightly, but not too much) that they didn't do them in Chicago the other night. Otherwise, it's a stellar show. Not too much to whine about, really.

    Dave says something like, "Well it only took us 20 years to get this fucking far" and then the song kicks back in without the 'bop bada's'.
    I gotta be honest here, I didn't think that part sounded so good from the Charlotte show. I love that part of the song but live and without Mikey, I think it may be a wise choice to skip that part.

    I thought I had closure when Dave got back with VH. But since they aren't doing the shoobeedoowahs, I no longer have closure.

    Its one of the most challenging vocals part in the Van Halen catalog. Its also tune #2 so I'm sure it was putting Wolfie under a lot of pressure.

    I sure wish the y would play Light Up The Sky instead!
