    The only other songs VH has listed at BMI are covers

    Dancing in the Street
    Ice Cream Man
    Pretty Woman
    Won't Get Fooled Again
    You Really Got Me

    ...since those songs were originally written by artists who published with BMI....whereas VH uses ASCAP... the writers are listed as

    Gene Garfin
    Andrew Gold

    ...they have no other credits at BMI that I could find??

    hmmmmmm... if so, that's news to me! And it may explain why they dumped it from III.

    I think you`re all wrong TWILY is not a cover
    Ed mentions in an interview around the release time of "3", I think its in the Inside.But I don`t have it to hand right now ,but he says he wrote a little pop tune when he first met Gary, and sent it to him on tape, Gary was in another city NYC or Boston I think and Gary wrote TWILY to it.

    Also I believe DLR also wrote lyrics to the tune, helped by Desmond Child, or possibly completly done by Des, which is rumored to be Blood From A Rock.

    You're right Van ricardo - I have definately read that Dave was pissed off that not only did he get kicked out of the band again but they were using a song that he had written during the BOV1 sessions. Maybe this is the reason TWILY was taken off the album so close to the release date.

    I'm pretty sure it's not a cover.

    I never knew that DLR wrote TWILY. IF he did, that's pretty cool.

    Dave may have written lyrics to the same music as TWILY, but I really, really doubt Gary sang Dave's lyrics.

    TWILY is a VH original. You should hear the Andrew Gold version. Total elevator music and totally different song.

    yeah, I didn't think it could be a cover but it's pretty weird what kind of stuff ends up listed for VH at the ASCAP and BMI sites. If Magic Carpet Ride and TWILY are typos then they are bizarre typos since they've ended up on the wrong publishing site. How does anyone ending up putting that kind of info in by mistake?

    It's almost like someone is playing with our minds....not that VH would have anything to do with that
