    As Is - Official Discussion Thread

    Talk about this song that sounds like way heavy for VH. Trying to make sure all the individual songs have their own threads. Might make for easier discussion.

    That means put EVERYTHING about this song in here, like the lyrics, etc.

    I mentioned this on another thread, but ďAs IsĒ is actually a riff Eddie jammed at NAMM. Here is a YouTube video link (check it out at 5:45):

    Most definitely - here's a link to the clip:

    "I've been rich and I've been poor and rich is better totally better."

    - The wit and wisdom of David Lee Roth, Esq. Volume 27.
    What once upon a time made Van Halen unique in the progression of metal and hard rock (besides Eddieís prowess as a guitarist) was its sense of fun, its willingness to be not just over the top, but weird.

    I mentioned in another thread that it sounds a lot like "Beatin Around the Bush" by AC/DC, 'cept in A instead of E. Not a bad thing, IMO.
    We train dogs for cattle and sheep herding. They're very different. Sheep are a lot like supermodels - they bunch together, they rattle very easily. Cattle are like drunks at a hockey game - two will want to fight: "Who are you and what's with your badge?"

    Two of them will be like: "Leave them alone, let's go see the game." Another one is lost: "Where'd you guys go?" The dog has to deal with all of that. You work them off a whistle. It's the original video game.

    Van Halen reminded us last night of why we loved them in the first place. They helped us to get past all the bullshit around us and remind us to have a little fucking fun in the midst of it all. - Reckless Fable

    Super Łber boogie from the VH brothers. Right in each others pockets.

    Love it.

    Was gonna start this one myself - my pick out of a strong litter. A nod to Beatin Around the Bush, but hyper-vanhalenized and the killing side if ever there was one. I also like that I haven't heard it before (really).

    I give As Is the coveted 5 headbangers rating:

    At NAMM, what Ed said about the "As Is" riff: "I wrote the most fucking wicked boogie man. So fast.": http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...dVM0o94#t=333s (hear him say it here)

    Cheers,

    Default Lyrics?

    (These lyrics don't make sense at all in some parts - just wrote down what it sounded like phonetically... any better ideas?)


    Yesterday I was a bum and broke
    Today I am a star and broke
    In this town, thatís called progress
    Thatís how we do biz
    Iíve been rich and Iíve been poor
    Rich is better, totally better
    Require a degree of acceptance
    Is must accept as is

    That noise ainít digital
    Drop, drop, got a mega pro
    And what the hell, it was, so
    That day is done, SO!
    Letís have some fun, SO!
    Yours very truly!
    As Is

    How expensive he was
    Or wuh cheap he was
    Ainít no brain struck fo
    It ain't no hearse

    That noise ainít digital
    Drop, drop, got a mega pro
    And what the hell, it was, so
    That day is done SOÖ
    Letís have some fun, SO!
    Yours very truly!
    As Is

    (This next part should really confuse things!
    Everybody, letís stay focused!)

    Flip the pass
    Lift Ďem up
    Every day down hereís a rainy day
    We donít shape up

    Lift Ďem up
    Every day down hereís a rainy day
    We donít shape up
    I think it's:

    How expensive he was
    Or what was he (it?) worth
    Ainít no bridge truck?
    Following no hearse

    and:

    Flip the path
    Lift Ďem up
