    I don't know if this belongs in Main, so Mod's feel free to move. I was watching VH1 Classic last night and they played that early 80's teenybopper Rick Springfield's "I've done everything for you". It sounds exactly like a Sammy Hagar song, lyrics and everything. I think that I remember reading in these forums that those two are good friends and that Hagar wrote it for him. Is this really true?

    Yep, It's Sammy's song alright. There is a kick ass version on his first live album.

    Rick Springfield VH related sidenote, from a recent interview with the St Louis Riverfront Times, from the Night and Day section:

    Riverfront Times: Who's better, Sammy Hagar (Springfield covers Hagar's "I've Done Everything For You) or David Lee Roth?

    Rick Springfield: Both are good for different things. Sammy's got a great voice and is a great writer. I love Dave's attitude.

    Just remembered reading this and thought I'd add it to the post. No, I'm not a closet Springfield fan.

    And underneath the arch, it turned into a march,

    We are down the road! I Can Dig It! Can You?

    Sam didnt write it for Rick, in fact I remember Sam doing a live version where he said, "This is how this song should be done"
    It's good to be the King or at least know him.

    If I remember right the list of songs Hagar performed at Cabo this year at B-day bash included this song.

    Sam wrote and recorded the song for himself. He felt it could have been a hit at the time even though it bombed. When Rick Springfield asked to do it, he let him, and it's success vindicated (in his eyes) Sammy's view that Capitol dropped the ball with the song.

    Sam didn't care, he got all the residuals for it.

    Roll your eyes all you want but it's true! Check out the writing credits on The Rose. Sam had a big hand in that project, wrote some great songs for it. Maybe he ought to explore the idea of doing movie soundtracks?

    Shit, I thought everyone was joking when they said he wrote music for Bette Midler (because they look the same) but he actually did !? I quite liked Rick Springfields version of "Ive done everything for you" I never realized Sam wrote this.

    Well, from what I've been able to find, she only covered his song "Red", which he also released that same year, 1977...

    Now can you guess who's singing here, her or him? <LOL>
