    Does anyone know what Dave is singing exactly in the middle part of GIRL GONE BAD? You know the part after Eddie's solo where he starts noodling on the main riff and you hear Dave crooning in the background for a few seconds and then he sings some line and then the song picks up again before it goes into the chorus one last time?

    It's my favorite part of the song, but I've never been able to understand what Dave is singing. Sounds great though.

    Something about "these streets......." then "I don't call them my home (possibly 'own')"

    That's all I've been able to figure out, and even that could be wrong. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    I figured he was just "skatting".

    Good question. I've never really tried to figure out what he's saying.

    I went to Van-Halen.com and they dont show any words there. (you guys probably already did that but I had to see for myself)

    I never really tried to figure them out as I could never make out what he says there, either.

    But right after that part is some killer, killer, music........the whols song is killer, killer !

    I've always thought that the words were, "These streets of passion, they callin' my name." Then again I could be wrong as usual. Thanks a lot Rikk for giving me a reason to study this album again. You bastard! Oh well, a little research never hurt anyone. Out.
