    Default Take Two ...

    Now that another rumor of Van Halen doing something that would have made their fan base extremely happy has been debunked (naturally by someone who isn't a current member of the band), what is everyone's opinion on the following alternate take two of song two from Van Halen II?

    "It's so lonely at the top because it's so crowded at the bottom" - Diamond David Lee Roth

    "The truth sounds like hate to those who hate the truth" - Todd Wagner

    "Women and Children First ... The REAL Van Halen III"

    Iím a big fan of the alternate song takes.

    The 2015 remasters would have been so much better if they included songs like this.

    Similar to what Led Zep did with their most recent remastered albums.

    I really like this alternate version with the different vocal melodies.

    prefer the original release version, but this is cool.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    Original is preferred but would love to have expanded editions of albums with outtakes etc.

    I’d kill to hear the FUCK leftovers.

    This sounds off, vocally.

    The original is much better.

    Original, but I think the solo should've included one of Dave's "chi-ahs." Why? I'm not sure. Sounds cool and enhances the song. Just one though--don't wanna fuck with Eddie's harmonics.

    Atrocious... I love the version on VH II, yet this, while neat to 'have', stinks. IMO.
    Nothing to do with the backing vox or instruments. Not hard to see/hear why Templeman nixed this lead vocal performance.

    There are some pieces of this that are in the final version guys.

    I totally disagree. While the final version is superior, I dig this alternate take.

    In fact I think the entire second verse is the real verse. I havenít listened to it again but I think thatís what I got from it before.
