"When It's Love" by Van Halen (OU812, 1988)

Just Go and Kiss Something: Digital Art by Shawn Michel de Montaigne





When It's Love

Van Halen



~~*~~



Everybody's lookin' for somethin'

Somethin' to fill in the holes

We think a lot but don't talk much about it

Till things get out of control


How do I know when it's love?

I can't tell you but it lasts forever

How does it feel when it's love?

It's just somethin' you feel together

When it's love


You look at every face in a crowd

Some shine and some keep you guessin'

Waitin' for someone to come into focus

Teach you your final love lesson


How do I know when it's love?

I can't tell you but it lasts forever

How does it feel when it's love?

It's just somethin' you feel together


Oh, when it's love

You can feel it, yeah

Nothin's missin', yeah


Yeah, you can feel it

Oh, when it's love

When nothin's missin'


How do I know when it's love?

I can't tell you but it lasts forever

How does it feel when it's love?

It's just somethin' you feel together


How do I know when it's love?

I can't tell you but it lasts forever

When it's love

When it's love

Hey, it'll last forever


When it's love ...

You and I

We're gonna feel this thing together

When it's love

When it's love, baby

You can feel it, yeah!

We'll make it last forever

When it's love

I never understood the folks that took sides:

you were either for David Lee Roth or Sammy Hagar,

but you couldn't be for both.

It's churlish and breathtakingly immature.

I thought the particular hosers who engaged in such

tribal stupidity were one-offs and relatively rare.


And then the Internet came along and proved me vastly wrong.


I believe this gem belongs under the category

of "power ballad."

I don't know.

I don't think it actually matters.

There is an uplift to this song,

one distinctly Beatles-like in its innocence

and lyrics.

I very much appreciate that.

I've never been a huge, huge Van Halen fan,

but I can say they produced some fantastic music,

more of which will appear on this playlist.

I love Diamond Dave and Sammy.

Deal with it, hosers.
