    Default Future in the Past is just EPIC

    I'm jamming this at work right now. What an awesome song.

    Best thing Sam's done since he left VH IMHO, might be one of the best things he's ever done period.

    this song alone makes that first cf disk a must have for me.

    This pops up on the iPod every now and again. It always seems like I just can't get it loud enough. (It needs to go to 11).

    Great song!

    I'd say it might be his best song ever outside of Van Halen. "Turnin' Left" ain't too far behind, either!

    I think that's probably why I'm so critical of him when I feel he puts out a stinker. I know he still has it in him( with help) to put out a great tune. Come Closer is another tune that I rank high on the list.

    I think you guys have lost your minds!


    I love Sammy and saw CF on both tours so I'm not here to bash. But to call this song his best outside of VH is quite a reach (in my humble opinion of course).



    Future is a solid tune but is it better than There's Only One Way To Rock? Not in a million years. Or Eagles Fly....Give To Live....High Hopes......and more.

    some of the stuff on MTM is close, I'm not talking about the stuff he did before vh or even when he was in VH (I never said goodbye or unboxed).

    Sorry, I was referring to what the other guy said ("it might be his best song ever outside of Van Halen")

    I actually do rate it up there with his whole musical catalog. Give To Live and Eagles Fly aren't a quarter of what FITP is DD. Are you on drugs? 😀

    I can dig that some think that TOOWTR is one of Sam's best but LWAN has destroyed the original and is all I can hear when that song is mentioned.

    I think you're high.


    I've just listened to Future again a couple times to try and see what you guys hear to rank it that high. It's a very good song but Eagles Fly destroys it.

    Yes it does. It's all I hear too. But the original is still a kick ass song.

    It's not a bad tune. Certainly not my favorite but good.
