    Default Sammy's Space Opera

    I remember reading about the time that Sammy joined Van Halen that he had a song about outer space or aliens on every album.
    He said it was unfinished business that he had not put all these songs together and done his space opera.

    Admittedly, some of these "space" songs are horrific...but a part of me would love to see him do this.

    Utilizing the handy dandy notebook, we can go through every album and see an outerspace song on each of them, up until I believe VOA.

    Montrose-Space Station Number 5
    Paper Money-Spaceage Sacrifice
    9 on a 10 Scale-Silver Lights
    The Red Album-Little Star/Eclipse
    Musical Chairs-Someone Out There/Crack in the World
    Street Machine-This Planet's On Fire
    Danger Zone-In the Night (Entering the Danger Zone)
    Standing Hampton-Inside Looking In
    3 Lock Box-In the Room
    HSAS-Animation/Valley of the Kings/Giza
    VOA----Dick in the Dirt? LOL
    5150-Love Walks In
    Ou812-No fucking idea
    FUCK-Judgement Day/Pleasure Dome
    Balance-the 7th Seal
    I Never Said Goodbye-Returning Home
    Marching to Mars-marching to mars
    Red Voodoo-Returning of the Wish
    10-13----?
    Not 4 Sale-Not 4 Sale...(he alludes to believing in aliens)
    Livin It Up-?
    Cosmic Universal Fashion-Title Track?
    Chickenfoot-?
    Chickenfoot III-?

    Actually, now that I've written it out, it would either be spectacular or awful.

    Thoughts, comments.

    Quite a lot actually.

    Inside lookin in is about inner demons...

    In the room is about being closed in/isolated.

    I can't be bothered explaining the rest.
    What is understood need not be discussed

    I apologize if I made mistakes in my interpretations of what were space songs.

    I get your point. I think Sammy wants most of his pre-VH catalog left in the past. I've heard that there was some sort of conflict with his previous record company. That being said, I suspect that if there was such a project, he'd want to oversee it, but not directly be involved in it. Even the songs would probably be recorded by more contemporary singers. I think it would be a cool project, especially if Sammy were really involved in it and recorded all the music over again.

    Penis, not blaming you. I don't expect you to know much about space, except for the one between a girl's legs. I would NOT forgive you, though, if you couldn't figure out the meaning of "Dick In The Dirt."

    I'm sorry, I put LOL after dick in the dirt, meaning I couldn't figure out the space song on VOA. That song is ridiculously bad.

    I think "No Fucking Idea", was the working title for Source of Infection, they came up with that title when asked by Al and Mike what the hell they were thinking when they wrote those lyrics.
