    Default Weirdest VH track

    What do yall thank is the weirdest track VH ever recorded musically or otherwise? And ladies, HMSI does not count.

    I vote for Get Up, weird/jittery riff, intro, AND licks(listen to 0:29). Just all around weird, through to MA's last window shaddering scream. But I love it.

    I wouldn't call them "weird", but one of my favorite things about the DLR era was that the band could go and do a song like "Could This Be Magic!?", and then turn around and rip out something like "Hang 'em High" and STILL sound like the same band. It showed balls, depth, and originality. Can't get THAT stuff no more. Some other great "weird" tracks....

    Crossing Over, I think that's the name. It was the "B" side to Feels So Good I believe.

    Man, I really liked Crossing Over. A seriously under-rated Sammy era tune. Could've easily been a single on the Balance CD. That should've been track 2 and Can't stop lovin' you dumped from the recording.

    1984/Jump will always be weird to me. Not my idea of Van Halen.

    From Afar is weird, but in a good way. Not every one's Van Halen.

    This next part could really confuse things. Let's stay focused. #asis

    Sammy discusses that song in his unreleased book if I remember correctly, I'll have to re-read it.

    The idea that a bunch of grown men sat around and all agreed that it was worthy of it's own spot on the album is just flat-out fucked up to me. It makes zero fucking sense to me how that could have happened.

    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.

    I believe Bruce Fairburn did that. The original tape was over an hour and he or Ed edited it down to that and Bruce used it as the intro to Not Enough. That's how I remember it.

    Blasphemer, Can't Stop Loving You is a decent tune. Kick out Bacabullshit or Feelings off of Balance. Crossing Over is a good song. But if you believe interviews, the music and lyrics were written by EVH.
    I don't have a cool signature. Deal with it!
