    Here's a link to a couple of versions. If you have access to the ripping software programs mentioned around here (such as this one: http://www.dvdvideosoft.com/products...-Converter.htm ), you can merely separate it from the video.

    Good riff and guitar work in this song. A polished version would have been sweet. Since it didn't make the cut with 5150 I'm surprised it didn't resurface on a later VH record like OU812.

    Yeah right.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

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

    Isn't the main guitar riff on this the same as the "Stompin at 8H" that Ed played on Sat Night Live in '87 with GE Smith?
    ...and in the end, on dreams we will depend...

    Listen close to Dirty Water Dog on III for that riff's final resting place. I Want Some Action rocks and deserves a better fate than collecting dust in the vault.

    Let me ask a potentially dumb question but, how do people get a hold of these tunes? I mean originally? Do they get "leaked" some how????

    Thanks for the link chefcraig, always nice to hear something "new", even if it is a bit, well... average.

    Not surprised it didn't make it onto 5150.

    Thanks all the same though. It's because of people such as yourself that I got to hear "Crossing over" for the first time.
