    Default He said the reason the song was a hit was because he was better looking than me

    I didnít realize this was a Sammy Hagar Song first.

    I always thought Sammy sounded like he was reading the lyrics for the first time when they recorded this. Very E-NUN-SEE-ATE-Y.

    That's why the other version is better.

    I'm used to Rick's version, I like it better. Nothing wrong with Sam's, it has the benefit of being the original.

    Rick Springfieldís version just has a better flow to it.

    I notice Sammy definitely got his teeth fixed in the years later.

    I believe Sammy's anger more - good song, as always when Sam gets angry.

    Sammy's teeth can drive 55 - they each got their own red car.

    It's been a minute. Five years?

    I remember reading something from Sam about it.

    the main reason this song died with Sam was because Capitol had no idea what to do with him. there wasn't even a studio version of this song until Capitol started to repackage Sam's stuff after he left for Geffen (it's on the compilation Rematch). The only version before then was a live version he did for All Night Long. Capitol just dropped the ball with this. it might not have big as big as Springfield's as I believe he was already pretty famous at this time while Sam was still unknown to the general public.
