    How many beers did it take for Eddie to think "How Many Say I" wasn't a total joke? I mean honestly... I've been listening to this song lately trying to see if I'm missing something here. I was beginning to wonder if the song is really as bad as I think it is. I've now come to the conclusion after listening to it 10 times that I was right to begin with - It sucks!!

    Maybe he didn't drink enough beers.

    Musically, I think it's a nice work.

    Lyrically, I think it's a 'piece of work'.

    Vocally, I think it didn't work.

    But I don't think it's a joke, coz jokes makes me laugh, and I didn't laugh at the song. I wasn't moved by it either.

    Yep I gotta say that it's not one of my fav's. Although I think this belongs in the opinions gig, not in the 101 masterpiece. I came hear tonight looking for answers, not How many say I. LOL.

    I originally posted in the "101" forum not by accident but because I figured that the VH Encyclopedia might have the answer to my question. I don't own the VHE so I was figuring someone here could tell me but I figure the answer is somewhere around 12-15 beers.

    Musically, I like the song. As for Eddie's vocals, well enough has been said about that. I think they should have put this song on a B-side to either 'Without You' or 'Fire In the Hole'. Kinda like 'Apolitical Blues' from OU812.

    I'd like to hear this song with all the vocals pulled off of it. I like the music, I don't even mind the chorus, and I could forgive the vocal performance from Eddie, but the lyrics are just horrendous. Sounds like they were written by a child.

    Agreed Glenn. The first thing I thought when I heard those lyrics was:


    "Did Wolfie write these lyrics?????"


    I mean, please! The lyrics are SO sophmoric in nature....

    The lyrics remind me of Oasis lyrics - When you hear the first verse, you immediately can guess what the second verse is. Then when you hear the third verse, you immediately can guess what the fourth verse is. This is obviously due to a pathetic use of cliches and used-up lyrical ideas. As bad as the lyrics are on "How Many Say I", I still think the worst part is the singing and those utterly terrible vocal "harmonies." Wait... were those even harmonies? Half of the time when there were two voices it sounded way off key and out of tune. Like I said earlier though, it's a good one for a laugh. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] I think the title should have been "HOW MANY SAY THIS SONG IS THE ICING ON THE CAKE FOR VH'S WORST ALBUM EVER." The whole world would have said "I!"

    BTW, Why does Eddie have this obsession with trying to be deep now in a "Pink Floyd vibe?" He said that a few times in interviews and his Rogers Waters imitation of "Mother" on this song only proves that this formula WILL NOT work with Van Halen.

    I know a lot of people out there aren't EVH PURISTS but I am, and I am glad to know that he has shed the idea that he needs a seperate singer when he could always look within and find one at the very core. Obviously, everything this man touches turns to gold, and he has proved it once again. Death to the disbelievers, but this is the age of the singer/songwriter, and EVH proves he needs no one nicely.

It is I, the bacon in her eggs, the man for whom she begs, and the face between her legs. The Quintessential and original Studmuffin and a good lord, have mercy, Goddamn handsome man.
