    Default CSLY Cover

    The cover of "Can't Stop Loving You" in this video is pretty darn good. It starts around the 5:00 point.

    Meh. I couldn't even get past 20 seconds but I don't like that kind of music anyway...
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    I liked it, because they took the song and did their own spin on it.

    Too many band do these kinds of things and then try to sound just like the original artist. There's a time and place for that (obvious pun!), yet I also appreciate hearing tunes done with a different take and vibe.

    Now I agree with this, at least they did it their own way. Just didn't like their way.

    There's really a wide variety of opinions among VH fans, and that's cool, in a way. I just don't know what other song, in either era, prepared you to like "CSLY." Even on previous Sammy-fronted VH records, there was no song like CSLY. Also the placement of that song on "Balance" is quasi criminal. After the incredible momentum of "Seventh Seal," they ruin everything with CSLY. If they had just replaced "CSLY" by "Crossing Over," it might have been the best VH record in a long, long time. It's not just Sammy. Ed has so many great riffs, and chooses to record this? What? The music is worse than anything on VHIII.

    Lol. I think that's where it starts and stops for me. nothing prepared you for this one. It's like aliens took over their body and recorded this song.

    Still.... hard to deny it's a fine pop/rock song (technically speaking) and EVH adds some special flair only EVH can add (Damn Ed). Solo section is pretty cool and how they come out of it.

    The middle pre-chorus includes maybe the most pick slides in a row (at 1:50)... wow...never noticed that ;-)

    I don't understand the hate for CSLY. It is an absolutely awesome Van Halen pop song.
