I dont care who writes the song or sings it, as long as it's good. Hell, Heart didn't even write most of their songs from their 80s AOR heyday...does that mean they weren't worthy?

Opinion I guess. Other than the title Me Wise Magic, I remember nothing about the song. I cannot even remember the title of the other one. Considering Van Halen was one of my favorite bands, that's sad.

They had hits with ballads. Their albums were full of rock. Guess you never really listened to them.

I never suggested it...I'm just not opposed to it.

Last July they recorded, what, 3 tunes? All that in 2-3 years! wow...what productivity! Fact is, nothing is a FACT until it happens. For all you know, they could dig up some unknown and create the greatest album ever. I'm not sure what your love affair is with Dave, but FACT is, Van Halen went miserably downhill after Fair Warning. Diver Down and 1984 sucked balls.

I feel bad...you are trying so hard to dismiss an entire genre of music and failing miserably. Why are you even hanging out here? The majority of people here happen to like this "cheese" stuff.
