    Default Love Walks In vs When It's Love

    Which one of these ballads, from 5150 and OU812 respectively, do you prefer?

    I have a feeling I might be in the minority on this one, but I have to go with Love Walks In. Eddie's two awesome solos give it the nod over When It's Love.

    Check 'em out and weigh in with your thoughts. Don't be the one who finds a way to turn this into yet another Sammy vs Dave thread ...




    Or?

    Never liked LWI.

    For me it's not even a contest. When It's Love with a 2nd round TKO.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    I love both songs. I really do.
    LWI has those two gorgeous solos, and the melodies they're based off of. WIL has a more direct impact, plus Ed's "Clapton-esque" solo..

    Hmmmm.
    Again, love them both. I'll go with "When It's Love" for the win.

    Not a fan of ballads, surprise, but When It's Love by a landslide.

    When its love is a more complex song, however, I was 16 when Love walks in came out and I was in love with my high school sweetheart at the time. So, I have to go with Love walks in.

    My mangina likes them both. But When It's Love really makes it moist.

    I can see how one would consider LWI a ballad. However, I don't view WIL as a ballad. LWI is a really good song. Melody/harmony is great. Excellent Ed solo. Liked that the song was about aliens. Great Sammy vocal performance.

    Still, I'd have to pick WIL. Like how the tune picks up. Love the chorus. Very Beatles. Love the outro. Catchy tune. Another fantastic Ed solo. He seems to do that a lot, make awesome, song appropriate solos that just always feel right.

    Always did like Alex's playing on WIL, I really like the sound of his toms on OU812, especially compared to 5150.

    I also like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain.

    And....

    Full Disclosure: I was hoping the bros would ask Helen Reddy when Dave quit/ was fired from the band.

    Gawd, this thread is so therapeutic!
