Finally, we are kicking off Round 2 of music from The Wild Life!
These are all Van Halen News Desk exclusives. Here’s what we call “Peeping Tom,” written and performed by Eddie Van Halen in 1983. This track is part of the musical score from the movie The Wild Life. Eddie wrote the entire musical score for the movie, playing guitar along with his electronic drum machine.
The director wanted this short piece of music to be used when Eileen was undressing in her bedroom while Tom spied on her from her bedroom window. Now, for the first time, VH fans can hear the full track!
Much More on the way! The Van Halen News Desk will be releasing all of Ed’s music from The Wild Life score throughout the coming weeks, via our Van Halen Vault youtube channel (subscribe here). These will all be the full, raw tracks that Eddie recorded, before they were edited for use in the movie. So stay tuned, track #6 is coming soon! (Others we released so far were “Out The Window,“ “Top Down,” “Back To School,” “(Nearly) Good Enough” and “”All Fired Up.”
