    Default "Women in love.." - Is there a true story behind it?

    I cant remember ever reading if the lyrics to this song are influenced by a experience dave had or not. Its clearly saying Daves girlfreind is interested in another woman or having sex with another woman, while shes with dave. Has there been any interviews/info where they talk about this song?

    I've always thought the same thing. Kind of like VH's version of "Whole Lotta Rosie." Never heard a story told by the band though.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    There IS a story behind this song:

    It was co-written by Kim Fowley. Look him up - a total freak of LA Sunset Strip. He put together the Runaways (great movie of their story just came out and Kim Fowley was a FREAK)

    Also - in Slash's book - he talks about Kim Fowley a bit - I think also he is mentioned in The Dirt (Motely Crue)

    Also - you can see Kim Fowley talk about Van Halen in that DVD "Early Years"

    Yes - I am a bit of a VH histroy freak.

    As far as the actual song lyrics - i think if you read about Kim Fowley - you will get the song kind of... it's really a song about a girl leaving his man for another girl. Eddie mentions this quickly in the lost interviews from the Van Halen book In his Own Words (or something like that) - Or Guitar World book i think it is.

    Hope this helps
    Yes

    Default wait...i was wrong

    Sorry - it was NOT women in love co-written by Kim Fowley - i just double checked on his website.

    It was Young and Wild

    Okay - still a VH connection - but i was totally wrong

    But Eddie does mention it a bit in that lost interview

    Okay, I'm a stupid VH history freak - i make up my own histroy

    DAMN!

    Don't worry about it.

    Have you been to van-halen.com?

    They are making up their own band history as well.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

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

    Just give my two cents that this is one of my favorites off this album. Would love to hear it live in the 2011 tour!

    Kim Fowley co-wrote "King of the night time world" too with kiss.
