    Or does DLR laugh in "dance the night away" ?

    You know the part right near the start when he sings, "I can feel herrrrr, from a-CROOSSSSS th-haha room"

    something like that. It's really cool, I don't know if it's planned or not, but it almost seems like he surprises himself at how high he says ACROSS and has to chuckle...

    I don't know if this is common knowledge or if there's a story behind it, but I just got a new pair of speakers and can really hear it. It makes me laugh everytime now.

    I don't know if he's laughing, but DLR was the coolest guy on the planet for many years. His style of singing will never be matched

    Honestly guys, take out your copy of VH2 and listen, I swear he's laughing right after he says ACROSS, right near the start of the song...

    Trust me.

    I always thought he was laughing too. It's just so cool how he does that!!!

    I think he hit that high yelp and then was like, "Oh yeah, I fuckin' rule!" So he just chuckled a bit....

    Anyway, it's just totally cool! [img]graemlins/bounce.gif[/img]

    It's more like a chuckle, but Roth tossed off screams like that in his sleep back then so I don't think it was out of amazement - more likely he was laughing at something someone was doing while he recorded the part. They were probably making faces at him or something.

    Dance the Night Away is a classic example of howthe tune where Dave shows Van Halen fans that he can write catchy pop that matches any of the numerous Hagar period songs in this style.

    Yes, deffinatly, i think he does laugh cause his voice is really high in that song.

    I always thought it was a laugh too! There's another song, too, where he totally laughs! I can't remember! If anyone remembers, please post. It may be "Everybody Wants Some", I'm not sure.
