    What VH song sat on the shelf longest before it was ever released? (I'm looking for the answer -- I don't know it!)

    Lawchick I'm not certain but I know "Jump" was written in either 1980 or 1981 and so was "Right Now." As far as I know, "Right Now" was for about 10 years. "316" was also on the shelf for about 5-6 years, as it was in LWAN in '86. The main riff to "Take Me Back" dates back to 1979 with VHII from what I've seen in some interviews but don't know if I remember that correctly.

    That is a great question.

    I'm going to take a stab at House of Pain. Ed held on to that lick from take me back for quite a while, but I think for whole songs I'd say HOP.

    Let's hope the "two or three albums" of music Eddie claims to have now doesn't break these records! [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]

    Hang 'Em High was around in 1976 (when it was called Last Night). 6 years for that one.

    House of Pain sat "on the shelf" for 7 years, as did Right Now (the music to it was in the "Wild Life" score).

    The riff to Top of the World was played on tour as early as 1981-82 during Dance the Night Away. That's 9-10 years.

    If you don't count Stompin' 8H from the 1987 episode of SNL and Steve Lukather's Twist the Knife, the riff from the unreleased 1985 I Want Some Action wasn't on record until Dirty Water Dog -- 13 years.

    But the "winner" would be the intro to Take Me Back (Deva Vu), which was written in '75-76 as the intro to No More Waiting. So that's 18-19 years if you count that.

    I thought the Top Of The World riff was the outro to Jump. [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img]

    Strung Out (if you call it a song)
    that's 12 years from recording to release in it's actual original form rather than a mutation so to speak.... [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]
