    ^ not sure I have the energy to choose 1 of each

    But here are some lines I like & think are above most of Hagar's normal stuff. Yup...I'm bringing up "Feels So Good" here (in the positive), and I might be crazy..haha


    Mine All Mine - overall fine and interesting with a few cliches thrown in. Best lyrics on the album?


    Feels So Good - even Sam fans will diss this one

    "Everyday I watch the tide roll in << whatever
    Stay until it rolls away << whatever
    Though nothing's on the shore << pretty good line
    I'm running back for more << pretty good with previous line
    I'll send the message in a bottle << cliche, likely stolen from The Police song
    Pray for the mercy of the sea" << pretty good line


    Finish What You Started - overall pretty simple, trite lyrics but a couple clever lines

    "Mama, I can be both of them << meh
    I got the tools to satisfy << meh
    Just walk away, if I fall shy at all" << seems good, not cliche


    that covers ou812

    Man don't get the whole "bad lyrics" thing some peeps have with vh. Can't really even give any credibility to this if "the full bug" is getting dissed. Love that tune. Should be on all the greatest hits. Ok maybe "spanked". I'll bite on that one. I'll just vote for wondering who the hell decided "how many say I" over "that's why I love ya".

    "Tattoo" is one of the few times I think the lyric is better than the music.

    yeah pretty lazy that is

    dunno, tough one... I generally rate roth as an original lyricist because he seems to pull random phrases and references from out of nowhere, and generally don't rate sam lyrically because he's so formulaic and dull, but more important than that I don't listen to VH for the lyrics anyway

    I like what sam did on Pleasure Dome, went a bit out of the ordinary, out of his normal zone. whereas Roth is probably at his most autopilot on Jump. but still, lyrically roth > sam all day

    Yeah Pleasure Dome I think was cool in concept and he did a decent job. But those talking parts seem a bit forced and could be improved.

    I often wonder if Sammy wishes he would have come up with something besides, "Only time will tell if we stand the test of time" in "Why Can't This Be Love?" How about, "We'll just have to see if we stand the test of time"?

    "Jump", while, IMO, an incredibly catchy and well-crafted song, also contains some of Dave's lamest lyrics.

    So, in summary, two of VH's biggest hits contain some of their worst lyrics.

    You think the lyrics on "Judgment Day" are worse than the lyrics on "Spanked"? Are you trying to suck up to DIBS?!?

    Shhh, it was supposed to be a surprise!

    I never minded "Spanked" at all. To me it was just another fun Van Halen song. I've always dug "Judgement Day" too, but you asked us to make a list. LOL
