The great thing about Van Halen is it's still Van Halen no matter who sings lead.
Co written by Michael McDonald from the Doobie Brothers.
did i suprise you?
Like always
Very .awesomest
And, are you effing serious!?!? Phil Collins? Every one of those people are hanging out together Bogart'n the doobage. If you're going to come out with some weird stuff like that, you have to at least share so we can try to get on that level...
ONE of my favorite VH tunes-Alex rocks!

Genesis and VH? Wtf
Song kicks a**..especia l l y the solo
You've got me captured I'm under your spell...love , love, love! The music gets me pumped when it starts off....fab! ❌⭕❌⭕
They need stop touring .
The bookend album to *early VH*. Van Hagar would come along 2 years later.
it may be kind of Genesis-ish, but it's still VH. It's the synths. It probably made sense at the time and I'm not going to knock them for experimentin g , but all those synths just aren't the Van Halen sound I like.
Great band with DLR
Great Song.
good tune.
I hear Roth is coming back to VH
again. love it. brings back memories.
Love it. Brings back memories.
Awesome song.

You know, I never made the Genesis comparison until I read below. There is *some* channeling going on :-)

House of Pain is the best song on 1984, but this one is great too
Great track, haunting melody of love denied.
Takes me back to summer of 1983, great album fo Sho'

If you know Rock there is no way you can mistake David Lee Roth for Phil Collins.

Good song but too much synth on this track
this is rock-n-roll
This song actually does have a Genesis feel to it (forgive me, but I actually originally mistook the vocals for those of Phil Collins!) Quite a departure from their classic sound, but I love it.
One of their top 5 songs IMHO.
van halen was much better with sammy hagar

Is there a bad note on 1984? This is a great song off a great album. It does have a "Prog-pop" feel. This song also demonstrates how good Van Halens' drums were.
Perhaps the most unique song from Van Halen's catalog. And further proof that Van Halen's last studio album was its best.
This song does have a Genesis feel to it! Good stuff...

Van Halen does their best to channel Genesis in this song. Very "Abacab"-esq u e .
