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.

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...

The bookend album to *early VH*. Van Hagar would come along 2 years later.
Report as inappropriate
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.

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
Report as inappropriate
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.
Report as inappropriate
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.
Report as inappropriate
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 .
