    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    I wonder- the title "Sunday Afternoon In The Park" is somewhat similar to "Saturday In The Park" by Chicago.

    The title to the VH instrumental is very specific. I don't recall Ed being at all into Chicago. I don't think there's a connection between these two songs at all. Am I wrong?

    What is the reference to?

    Well, it's just Dave being Dave:

    He wrote the lyrics to OFOTD first, and he matched the language patterns of the 2 titles to merge the songs as a related adjoining pair.

    ...in the park
    ...out the door
    (Similar lengths language wise)

    AND... at the same time, he established a nice visual contrast. The couple has a nice day in the park, followed by the boyfriend returning, and the subsequent needed quick escape to avoid a painful beatdown.

    BTW, All the song titles on FW are fucking genius.
