    Eddie was writing the music for another song, it was still in development when Ted Templeman and DLR hijacked it for Dancing In The Streets.

    I like the music more than the song itself.

    Maybe Eddie should revisit it, finish the tune he was originally working on, and include it on the new record.

    I too found the keyboard sound on DITS interesting, and Ed's solo is a nice one. But the song itself, is so overrated and over recorded. Ed had a right to be pissed that Ted took that keyboard riff for that cover.

    Aside from the wimpy backing vocals (which is a problem on a few other tracks on DD), I don't know what people are complaining about. I think Alex complaining about it just gives people a chance to cut it down, and bitch about Roth and TT. Which is really why Alex bitched... "Oh, look what Roth and Ted made us do", because it's an easy target, and so many VH fans are meddleheds. Roth and his black dance music...

    They seemed to dig it when it was released, and EVH sounded enthused "off the record" with Obrecht (where he didn't hesitate to speak his mind).

    Compared to some of the Hags stuff, DitS is heavy.

    I've never liked the song period, no matter who it was that was recording it. Kinda like Pretty Woman. I never understand why that song gets such a huge reaction at every VH concert I've ever been too. It sucks because it pretty much guarantees that VH will always play that damn song. Even the Roy Orbison version isn't THAT great.

    But I agree that DITS is better than "Feels So Good" or "Love Walks In" or "Not Enough" as examples.

    Indeed.

    I'm not ecstatic about it, but they were rushed and just had a big hit with a cover tune, so I understand how it came to be, and maybe what Templeman was thinking.

    I would rather they never played any of the covers they have put on the records live. I do like hearing other covers though, just as a surprise.

    I feel the same, although YRGM was somewhat redeemed on the last leg of the ADKOT tour with the extended jams. But I'd love to see them do surprise covers, like "Heartbreak Hotel" or my personal live fav, "Summertime Blues". Would also love to see them do some classic blues tune. Dave would be great tackling some Muddy Waters, Howlin Wolf or John Lee Hooker...

    yeah I love that 82 interview where Eddie defends and gushes about DD and the songs.
    i've never had a problem w any of it. it is refreshing to here that interview from the time. Instead of years later when everyone was pissed and could use DD as an easy target.

    I always found Where Have all the Good Times Gone to be far preferable to DitS.
    I always thought that it was the track that deerved more airplay than DitS.
    Where Have all the Good Times Gone is more Van Haleny to my ears.
    I suppose it's because DitS was a bigger hit originally to begin with.

    On WHatGTG, Alexs' snare has a nice thwack, and I like some things about Roths vocals - like the inflection he puts on "boyyza!"
