Could we don't we don't advise on looking that? Did you put adisclaimer on the back of the sticker? I did not know then shut your filthymouth like away people like away look as much as you want, I guess Kids Yep,but this episode we're talking about a very particular song, called right nowby Van Halen, and this was off the album for unlawful carnal knowledge,which came ot N, one housand, nine...

...hundred and ninety one and the song waswritten by Van Halen, Samy Higar wrote the lyrics and Eddivan Hallan wrote themusic and Hegar said the lyrics he wrote for right now were the best heever wrote for Van Haylen Song, as he and Eddie wanted to get serious andtalk about world issues and I'll. Tell you what Wel we'll dig into the lyricsbut yeah they were pretty spot on, even even more so inthe video actually. But what are what are some of your memories of this SongDave? I got a couple really kind of stay on vibe with a video. I think everybody's seen that at leasta billion times, if you were alive or a young teenager or adult at that pointin time, and they kind of stole some stick frommy pals. A comedy troop out of Canada called the kids in the hall youfamiliar with the kids in the hall, an all drew. Yes, remember, the headcrusher, Oh yeah, Yep yeah. They pull that little stunt with Michael Anthony,an the video, and I go hey hope you guys are sending the kids in a hall acheck and then at this, when this song came out, theyalte did Itie in with Crystal Pepsi, which I had. This is very embarrassing by the way.So can we just keep this a secret amongst ourselves? Yeah? I won't tellanybody. Thank you. Thank you so much. I was like in love with this. This girl.You know when you're a kid you have that crush, and you think, Oh, my God,my life revolves around this person. Like you know, I'm in their orbit, Ican't escape and her name was crystal so when we didn't see eyed. I Iremember fleeing to the woods with a bottle of crystal pepsy in my pocketand I would sit on a rock all lonely in the middle of the woods runded by pinetrees and various shrubberies drink. My Crystal Pepsi and think of the WE LASHSWut. So was your disagreement about...

...whether they like the taste of crystalpepsy or not? No it it wasn't. I like the taste of it. I really enjoyed it atthe time. I drank crap loads of it, but I also drink a lot of jolt. So I don'tknow my taste bugs were probably fried. HMM, maybe yeah jot will do that to youMMM yeah yeah. I remember when this came out lots of radio play and was onMTV nonstop thanks to it's Awsome, video and also yeah, like you mentionedCrysla Pepsi. I also miss that and when that came out in the early S, Iremember some kid in my science class. Did a blind taste test to see if one,if people could tell the difference between CRYSTA pepsy and regular Pepsiand then also which one they preferred. I forget how many people could tell thedifference, because I think you can definitely tell the difference and also,I think, like seventy five percent SAI. They preferred the regular Pepsi toCrystol Pepsi. It was kind of a onslide yeah, but I personally I prefer CRYSTAPepsi, but I'm also weird but ye you true. I didn't mean to jump in front of youthere. Okay, I think I appall no well, maybe a little bit a little bit. I havebeen known to be a freight train, but listen. I'm only doing this episodebecause I want to talk about soda. That's the only reason why I'm heresure so you know music be damn so here's a question for you just remember:Oka, Soda, No, okay, this! This was A. I don't remember whoowned them. It might have even been coca coldar Os something else, but theyhad these really off. Beat labels to the cans and theyd had a hot line thatyou could call and when you call the hot line, there'd be a guy who'd say tohear a bird Chirp press one and you'd press one and there's just him goingchirp chip chip Shirp. It was this really off beat brand of humorassociated with the brand. So if you never an, it was pretty good too. It'slike this really mix of a bunch of different SODIS is hard to put yourfinger on what it exactly tasted like. But for sure it was definitely okay. Idon't know if it was...

...the the okay phone number, but Iremember d. This is probably like twenty years ago so, like lates ealy toOsand, there was a phone number and I forget what it was, but it was like ifyou want to hear a duck, quack press five and you ad to like press five, andthen you just hear quack like that was that was it and then it would hang upit as could have been the Samebe it might have been yeah. I don't know ifthat was Ornot, but so definitely go online check that out trust me Sanow. Ilove that stuff yeah. I wish Ey'd bring it back because they brought BatkCrystal Pepsi for a short bit to which I did not wave my nose at that nostalgia trail. Isaid you know what no I'm not doing it. It had its time. It's over, like thedinosaurs, is extinct, goodbye yeah now so here's the thing right, th and I yes,they brought it back. BTHIS is probably a couple years ago now I want to sayTena Sixteen or maybe thousand and seventeen I still so I didn't know they werebringing it back, but one day I was a think at target and they had like oneof those keyosks and they had all the Qui peps there. I was like no shit, soI bought a bottle of about a twenty oucz bottle. It's still sittingunopened in my closet in my bedroom, Totha, two reasons. Why there's tworeasons why one, I still believe CRYSLA pepsy's amazing.However, I haven't had it in like twenty five years. So what? If I don'tlike it anymore right, what if my taste buds have changed so drastically that Idon't like crystal Pepsi Anymore, that would crush part of my childhood right.Okay, so I that's part of the reason why I have not had it. The other reason:Inte twenty ounce bottle there'RS sixty nine grams of sugar. Oh that's insane!That's good for you! It's well! So here's the thing thatAmerican Health Association suggest an added sugar limit of no more thanthirty six grams of sugar for most men, yeah. So double it up. That's Yeah onedtwenty ounce bottle yeah double dipping on the sugar. Hey, you know, listen isa one time deal and then I I was...

...actually thinking like you were goingto sell it on Ebay or something you know, I'm going to wait another twentyyears and I'm going to put this son of a bitch on Ebay. But the whole thing about you like worryingabout you know not loving it anymore is it's kind of funny. To me be honest. Idon't know like that's a weird, irrational viure to have that's a Te.Well, I mean come on it's a syrup infuse with with salts or waterand you're afraid that H, the love will die. I might and that's why I'm tryingto ster cloalter from Hon happening, thank God for the sugar, then so don'tbitch about the sugar. When ask Yo one thing: Thir's, probably stopping youmore than anything else from dipping your tow back in the thelake known as crystal pepsy yeah, and by the way mountain do seventy sevengrams, O sugar and a twenty oncze bottle something else I don't drink. IUSS I used to love. I used to love mountain dew back yeah. I would drinkthat. Let's lie not talk about Van Halen and you just give us nutritionallabels for like every product in your house. I will, I will, did you everhave Jones Soda. I have not. I know I'm familiar with it, but I have not okay,I'm not a big Soda Guy. To be honest with you overall, because I do not care forcarbonation fair enough yeah yeah, I'm no, I'm also not a big Soda Guy. Iprobably I mean I would say the last, like maybe twelve thirteen years Ireally don't drink soda like at all, like I maybe I'll, have like a glans ofgingeral or Rubeer, maybe once or twice a year at most like if we're going outto get like a there's one place at the beach like to go to, they have pizzathere and for there I maybe I'll grab like a rube or something like that, butthat's about as crazy as I get with M with Soda. But when I was like in myearly ies, I would there's a a place right across the street from my Churchand they had Jones Soda there so ice to Ge ECAS. They have these like weirdflavors, so I always would always grab a bottle of Jon Soda. That was alwayspretty cool you're one of those guys like thet people who drink orbits. Lookit's got little bubbles in it. Go on...

...your throat to me it's like yourdrinking buggers, but whatever right now, I don't drink bookers. I hope. No,here's! So! Here's here's the big question arightget about Crystal Pepsi,O or pepsiav SR TI Pepsi allright. Here's he real quest right, we'retalking. Let's get back to van Hallen here, areour team Dave or team Sammywhor. I are you team, Gary, oh Jeez le who would be team Gary. Probably youright you be that one guy about new! No, this team, I think Gary, has his fairamount of Nutri sweit or equal to to entice you babe rather than real sirr,but I'm not a van Halen Guy. I've never been a big Van Halen Fan, I mean at all.But if I were to infact shoes I would have to go with Diamond Dave, a hundredand ten percent, because not being a true fan of their music, I'm going forthe personality and the Panash all the way, all right yeah. How about you, I'm Sammy, I'm a Hagar, I'M A HIGAR FAN!I like Dave too. I don't! I don't not like him, I I think just probably, and it'sprobably the because that I grew up with with Hagar. So my time I waslistening to like kind of rock music like that is probably like late mid to late s and that's when Sammy was the leadsinger so yeah it's like it kind of grew up with like songs like why can'tthis be love, you know that was one of their big ones. When its love flike,it's a lot of love, songs and then you get the you know for unlawful carinalknowledge, and you have you know, like we talked, were talking about right now,right now top of the world. So you know there 's that's kind of what I grew upwith. So I feel, like I kind of leaned towards you know, Sammy by I like DaveGary, I like Gary when he was with extreme. That was that was a good mix,but not so much the one album they did with Fan Halen but yeah. You know I'vealready made it pretty well known that...

I am not a verse to sugar, so I thinkif any Sammy Hagar van Halen Sung appealed to me at all more than any other, it might have tobe poundcake, hmm but yeah like w. When I start talking about the track listing like yeah, I don't know, I could ratleoff probably more songs that had davidly wroth on themother than Samy Hagar, and I remember I owned when David Leroth went on his own, Iowne skyscraper, Oh really, yeah. I had that on e o record yeah, so I was cool,yeah yeah. Lucky me, you are lucky. I know because I work with you. Damn Brigister, Mr Running Mikes, nosugar guy! That's right! That's Ri cool that AK. Let me let me cool it down a bit here,but let's heat it back up because we're going to talk about the hot one hundredShart see that's another good, another good segue, but yeah this song. Ithought this song actually peeked a little bit higher. This song actuallypeaked at number. Fifty five on the US billboard, hot one hundred back inMarch, one Thousad, nine hundred and ninety two and current Ly van Halen-has over twelve million monthly listeners on spotify, so a prettydecent following still, but let's get back to the hotone hundred the top fivestarted with save the best for last Byvanessa Williams and a top spot, it'skind of a guilty pleasure mine. I love that Song Tears in heaven by don't sayit by Eric Claptin was number two remember. The time by Michael Jacksonwas three to be with you by Mister. Bigg was four, and I'm too sexy byright said: Fred was number five. That's a great song, Yeah Yeah, some other Great Tus, on the charts,where I love your smile by Shanise at nine. That's such a great tune, beatingthe beast by Seleen deal in them. My boy, Pebo Bryson, was at fourteendiamonds and pearls by prince an a new power generation was twenty. One smellslike Teen Spirit by Nirvana was twenty six one by Youtwo was thirty Mama, I'mcoming home by Ozzi Osborne at thirty...

...five. I can't make you love you byBonny rate at forty two another great tune in Bohemian rhapsoty still kind ofhanging on from waines world was that forty nine o thee the kind of rebirthof Behean rhapsodies second time around, Oh yeah, so yeah it was big. So thatwas huge. I was that was the that was the chart. Now, how does this songcompare to other songs on the album nou? This was actually the first van Halenalbum I actually owned. I love this album. It starts off withtheir song poundcake, which you talked about before. That was the first singleon this album which, by the way forunlawful carnage, get it yeah Eramae out there get it AAn acked,together people yeah anyway, Pany Clever Act, SOM yeah,that's it is, it is, and then you listen to pound cake and you istenalyrics is like kind of makes sense at the song kicks the album off right,eddies using thei drill in the guitar, which is Pretty Damn cool, great ideaand has a really cool sound. The song musically is awesome, lyrically a kindof mediyocre with the lyrics, but the music. I absolutely love. I couldlisten to that song all day. Thet me get Judgment Day, which is a cool tune,a handful of other good songs on the album. But what I found interesting isthat theyre two biggest singles right now on top of the world ore. Actuallyon the back half of the album, not saying you can't do that, justinteresting that theire two singles were put towards the back or two oftheir singles ere put towards the back now three. Sixteen! I love that songand actually makes you a little teeryi now thee nd, sixteen, it's Wolf Gangvan Halen's birthday, that's Eddie Song and he wrote that for him, just alittle guitar Ode to his son- and I remember listening to that when it cameout- and I liked it and then I listened to it again when I became a dead andyou know I hit a little bit harder. You know a a little bit closer to home andnow with Eddi passing, you know it's on another level. Now you know it's such acool song, you know it's good stuff and then you have topof the world great tune. I feel like...

...they use this all the time for sportsteams winning championships in the early s, it's kind of the easy song toplay, but this is all around a good album. I think right now fits in nicelydefinitely stands out. That is very kind of like piano heavy, but theytried some new things on the Sablum, like the drill and the guitar andpoundcake in the beginning of the album and and this song, so I think it's agood fit, but how about you you, like any other songs on this, album besidespoundcake, I'm not no, I'm not a big fan of this album, but I do get to say this. You know for aguy who's, so afraid of drinking crystal pepsy because of the sugarcontent you're such a big softy, I'm afraid if we cut open one of your veins,pure cane sugar, which is pour out of it. That's not nice. Why would you wantto do? I know I'm just saying, though I mean come on you're just talking aboutthree sixty and listen. The sentiment is true, don't get you know. I agreewith you this a lovely thing, but even you said that you're getting teriidgetting a little misty over this kind of stuff, and we know you teddy bearthat's what you are drew yeah I mean, and I also like, listen to it right.You know not too long after Eddie passed away was that about a month ago.Now so I mean it was yeah hearing I and then you know knowing what it was foryeah, it's a yeah, don't cry now we're on Er be strong. You got an issue: here's atissue, H, Yep, but lyrically right getting back to right. Now I think terk.I think the lyrics are great. It's a ver motivational song. I feel like thishits even harder. Now, I'm forty when this came out, I was like eleven ortwelve Soi'm like Ya. I got time when you get a little older, you realize youdon't, so you need to seize every moment. You can and that's what thesongs pretty much about you know yeah what whatdy. Well? What would you liketo mention here? Dave? I guess I just think they're very simplistic, there'snot much to them. I, when I originally looked at thelyrics, I thought hey any thirteen year old kid and a garage man could havewritten this. It wasn't like an act of a wonderful or talentedlyricist, but I will admit this now.

We' talking about age, where I'm at inmy life, the lyrics make me feel like shit. Well, sometimes sometimes they make mefeel like crap yeah, I'm like what have I accomplished what Hav I done. Damn itno think drew give me that tissue. I man its a lot Sammy, make me questionmy life and all my choices to Keila Guslin bastard yeah, but but now I meanit's a lot. This is like grisss. Like Great Dad Advice. You know the songstarts off. You know, don't want to wait til tomorrow, Whi put it offanother day, one by one little problems build up and stand in our way. Likethat's like spot on advice, though I mean you right, it is, it is simplistic,but it's not wrong. It's this Tru! It's right now. Remember the PSAS fom. Whenwe were kids, it was like a one. I think it was is only local for megrowing up in Massachusetts, but it's these thieves. They were runn around alittle kidn youre like it to tell Wen lie. It leads to another. If you telllo two lies: Oh brother you're in trouble up to you ears, so like hearingthat in this to me, it's like this really simple. I don't know I'm notoverly impressed by it. I don't take a lot of meaning out of it. You know whatI mean: Jellybean, fine, okay, I'm sorry to be crapping on your paradehere, but I also I'm not I'm not overly impressed with these lyrics. Now. Allright so lyrics hit me her. Something Else H. Let let me hat you with thisnow: Okay, let's, let's change gears and let's talk about the video now thevideo actually rewatched it and I jotted down some of these the littlelike slogans that they had in there and I'll tell you what I'm going to read a handful of them off,because they are insanely pertinence to this day, especially right now we'rerecording this on November. Fourth, so we're still in the the midst of the theto thousand and twenty election here, but it's it's interesting, so I'm just going to rattle some of themoff right right now. Opportunity is passing youby right. Now you could be outside...

...right. Like we always talk about. Youknow people staring at screens, you know- and this, like I said this waswritten in the early s like thirty years ago. Almost and I feel like nowlike people definitely should be outsidlike get outside more right. Now, guilt is turning someoneinside out this. One right here really was like wow right now. Oil companiesand old men are in control, you're, not wrong and nothing's changed in thirtyyears right now. Nothing is more expensive than regret. That's that's pretty deep man. You know that'sat's great, that's a great littlestatement there right now was just a space between ice ages. That makes mefeel nice and insignificant right now. That truth is being obscured right now, science is building atbetter tomato. Now I do like science and theyre beyond Burgers, but butlet's, let's talk some health nutritional facts. Your guys just becareful. Okay, because they're, just because they're Vegan doesn't meanthey're healthy right. Those things have way less cholesterol than regularburgers, but they have a ton of sodium in them. So just keep that in mind.People Right, if you don't believe it just check, drews freezer. That's right! Right now, someone's working too hardfor minimum wage right. Now, your parents miss you right now, no one issafe from loneliness. This is an awere in a pandemic right, that's pretty spot on for right now, right now, timeis having its way with you, as it always does right now our government isdoing things. We think only other countries do right. Now you aren't doing what youmost wish. You were boy, I think about that, every day, from nine to five andright now as harder than it looks so yeah well. Well, I do have to saythis is I think, those little tidbits from the video are more impressive thanthe actual song lyrics. But what have we learned from any of these thingsover the past few decades? Nothing, nothing ithink! I nothing's changed. Soyou know we all had him flash before...

...our eyes way back when and we're likeyeah that's right. There are crussy old sons of pitches, running oil and doingthis and the government's upto no good. And yes, let it go all right. E thanks,Bein haling thanks yea we're just going to ignore that blisfully for the restof our lives. Yeah! Well, you know they're, calling it out they're doingtheir job theire, drawing attention to some things here, sookay. You knowright now. You know someone working too hard for minimum wage. Yeah, there's.Definitely people that are you know, kind of getting the shift so to speak. So, oh yeah,sure everybody yeah yeah past you baby. This song is but yeah. So H, Ean the songs,basically just kind of get off your rast and live your life and do thethings you need to do and Wat to do. Right? U Know, don't wait get after itor only here for a short time, even if he live to be a hundred, that's still ablip on the radar so get after it and which, based on everything I just readand everything I just said I feel like. I should take this advice and actuallyquit my day. Job But jo Peos have like no and how many of us have nine to fivejobs that we hate. You know how many of us are unhappy in a variety ofsituations like a bad relationship. We hang ut with people, we don'tnecessarily like you know. Sometimes you gotta Dea wit's right for you, YEPeverybody raising their hands right now, R, create enough wind to power all theearth's wind farms for the next century, clean energy man. I love it yeah. Soall of us who raise your raise your hands if you're sure we're sure we hateour jobs and yeah, and what have you yeah totally so now I feel miserable. Ifeel bad cheer me up. L This song is stragging me down man. Well, let's,let's, let's cheer that because twere at Red, our final verdict here, so allright, Dave right now by Van Helen Yeah that do you think, do you think thesong is a legit hit, or do you think this is a song gone wrong? Okay, so here I am with my opinions onthis. Is I've already stated everything before ther would lead you to believe?I'm going to say this is a song gone...

...wrong? However, it is a very wellcrafted. Little Ditty has quite an extreme amount of relisten ability,wherein is it something that I'm clamoring for no I mentioned before. Idon't care for Van Halen, but has it aged incredibly? Well, yes, do we heedany of the messaging that dreuw mentioned from the video? Absolutelynot, but if it came on the radio, I would not be prone to change the dial.It does have a lot of elements that a key for a hit song. So therefore I amgoing to say well. Crafted sounds good stands to test of time, so lengit hitbaby, all right drew yeah. So I think, right now by Vany Allen. The song isvery unique. You know it starts off with a guitar legend Parguly, one ofthe best guitars of all time, playing a beautiful piano, riff musically. Oncethe song gets going, everything blends inperfectly, I think, know Eddie'sguitar. Is there that's what he's known for right, but it's not overpoweringand sure he can take over a song with his guitar. But he's smartly knows whatsounds good. So you know yeah, there's a guitar and songther. He does have asolo in there, but he builds it in nicely. Sammy's, lyrics, they're good.You know arethy the best in the world, maybe not, but I do think they are good.You know it's not it's not wrong. It's you know like proper. I, like again, Itheu Tis kind of like proper dad advice that you would give your kids. You knowhis. I think his voice sounds great. The content is beyond perfect. Thisisn't your typical van Halen Song, but that's fine and these guys tryling alittle different, a little outside their comfoort zone, and you know whatI think they struk golds and and this song alone is perfection I think, and then, when you add in thevideo I haven't watched that probably since the mids- and I wish I hadwatched it since then- and before now, but holy Shit, the video as such agreat concept and they nailed the execution. You know right now, its thetotal package, great song, Amazing Video, hell, throw me a ball crystolPepsi right now, because the song is, I...

...legid hit you have one. I don't need tothrow. I You I don is up my clothand drinking. You go it's in your closet.Yeah just wait is calling out to you drink me. True pop the CAP. True I'lltell you what if Pepsi does bring it back, I will definitely buy a bottleand drink it right on the spot and we'll see whathappens God yeah andplease make it a talking soda. That's what it's going to take it's going toneed what I was just doing to you. The soda actually needs to, in fact, do thesame thing need to speak. Don't abandon me drew in your closet, Drem hold onI'm trinking, my crystal pipsy, taking to make sure it's not possessedall right so yeah. So we have. We have our verdict et. We both we both thinkit's a leget hit, but let's check and see what the fans have to say about it,because we care- and we want to hear what they have to say. You got thatright. All right. The fans have spoken andseventy four percent said this song is a legits hit. Huh thoughtthat would have been a little bit higher. To be honest with you like, I could see how you know. Maybethere's like some van Hamml fans out there that maybe aren't Samby fans- Idon't know. Maybe e would rather go with Dave, but I don't know, but we didget some feedback, which is pretty good. So at Ryn Bome said incredible: Song atj Bel in seventy two said no doubt really powered by that bad as video andan era in the early s of such change and optimismt really spoke to the Timesat Genjendifo said nothing about Van Halen is a hit, and I stand by thisforever. So thanks Jen at IM, polenike said legit great song. It's not just asong, it's an Anthom to get up and do it that thing that's been burninginside you don't wait till tomorrow. Do it right now and is catchy as heck andat Ravy Oli ier set. I love that video too. So that's what we got yeah rightand I'm going to beat a dead horse. I'm...

...going to ask you: Is this part of yourmotivation mix? It's not! I feel like. I need to add it, though. Okay, it'sdefinitely on. It's definitely on my es mix that I have a like a separate vanHalen mix and it's on there too. That's such cop out man, you keep giving methat excuse. It's O my s, but it's no! On my n from the S. I know I know Iknow I know, but like I've we've gone over this, that's why I called itbeating a dead horse about how you have a mix for everything. You're like goingto home depo mix correct. So you know I know I shot that Lens. Okay, I'm sorryfree plug for both of them. I suppose, as if they care, but still you knowwhat I mean like yeah, I'm going to go by. I don't even know ice mix, something Ijust the most random crap. I could imagine the tying my shoelacis mixcoming from you. You know what I mean, what of what? If people were of Velcro Watwhat, you wher did that come fromwhile You'r saying tying your shoelaces, but what Af some yeah delcro? Well, youprobably have that geared and ready to the I have velcro shoes mix or I wearflip flops with sox mix. I don't know, I just assume you have everything underthe Sun Ready to rock and roll. So when you say Oh sombody, my sthe s mix isjust such a broad thing. I need it yeah specific yeah. You know anyway. Okay, sorry about thatYyou, always you know hat you always like to you know bust my chops aboutplaylist, Hey, you love, I iyou know yeah. I don't think I have one you'vegot a billion at least yeah there's a bankes full of playlist. You be sittingon top of them like scrooge micduck swimming in Hem, spit them out likewatermelon seeds, but it Idid it I'll.

...and they should hire me as like thechair, the chair of playlist yeah, ere, emiial government position. There rightyour own little bureau right because I mean I feel, like I mean you know,trump was using some songs that I don't think he had the rights to you know andalso some of the words you know whether you like him or not. It was kind ofinteresting some of the song choices there I feel like he could use somebodyto help him out with that. You GOINTOACCEPT THOSE CEA. I ceasontoassist letters is that what you're there for? No? No? No, I would I wouldwe wouldn't even get to that point. I would be like listen, let's use thissong. Instead, this is appropriate.
