    It's an alright song, nothing special. I think way more gets made of it than should be.
    .

    .
    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've always dug that song. Totally wish that was on Balance (like the Japanese version) instead of Strung Out and/or Doing Time.

    If you really crank this up on a good stereo and go with it, this song is powerful. Taking into account, the subject matter and history of the song makes it even better.

    One of my all time favorite VH tunes. It makes me wonder what the next album after balance would have sounded like. Oh, and for some reason this song has always kinda reminded me of Space Dye Vest by Dream Theater, don't know why.

    That is great work on the video. Captured Eddie looking very happy and healthy...as well the rest of the band.

    Honestly, if you don't get this song, you don't get the band. This song is one of their best. I do agree that you have to listen to it very loud or with headphones or you will miss some of the subtlties of the track. For example, the left and right channels have different lyrics as the main vocal track is played. Simply a good solid tune. It never gets old.

    Always loved this song. Thought it should have been on Balance as well. Between Crossing Over and Humans Being, who knows what another Sammy fronted album could have brought. :hmm:

    I love this song and this video is cool too.
    I think this would be a hard song to do live though.

    It should be pointed out that this is another effort by sphen5150, the fellow that did some splendid work on a couple of other VH vids. You can view some of this other work here:

    Love the little middle eastern influenced soloing by Ed. Sounded like they were really going in a different direction. Humans Being was just the beginning.
