    This is such a cool song . Summer of 88 I lost my virginity to this song , oh man freshman year in high school . The solo by Ed is one of my favorites , the echo and all , it gives me goosebumps . All I know is when I first heard this song I was floored . It kind of reminds me of the band Cream , just the way it is played , about the only song off of ou812 where you can hear Mike's bass . great background vocals also . This tune should have been played on the 91 , 93 , 95 , and even the 98 tour . It kicks ass!!!All I know is I was screwing my brains out that summer and this song was playing in my head the whole time . I ended up loosing the girl but 2 years later we hooked up again

    My sentiments exactly ED!Kinda thought it was VERY underrated.Imagine how that whole album will sound if ED VH ever decides to remaster it huh?

    Ditto to Ed6150 & viking. Black And Blue is my favorite song off OU812. That and When It's Love are actually the only two songs I really like off that album.

    Black and Blue, very good song.

    Only problem with OU812 is someone thought it would be brilliant to list the songs in alphabetical order not chronological, so it usually gets lost when I dig albums out

    OU812 does need to be remastered. I actually have it in my cd player now, though I don't know why.

    I agree with the Homeunit on this one. Song is cool, but the lyrics drag it down IMO.

    The lyrics are CHEESY , but it's still a great song . Great 80's rock song . I even like the lyrics from Black&Blue better than those on Mine All Mine , there I said it

    I like it when Van Halen is less serious .
    The cheesier and rauchier the better . Fuck the philosopical shit , if I want to hear serious songs and lyrics I'll listen to STING

    I remember when this first came out, I hated it. Now I love it. The lyrics certainly aren't Shakespeare, but if they were I wouldn't understand them.

    I love this song man. Bad lyrics?? The whole song has a raunchy kind of nasty, dirty sex feel to it anyways. The lyrics just compliment the music in my mind. Hell, the guitar solo is the closest thing I have ever heard to musical orgasm I think the lyrics fit just fine. Its all about a sex session.

    Who the hell wants Shakespeare for lyrics? I like being able to understand what they're singing about on the first listen
