This killer song is little-known because it’s not on any Van Halen album. It was only released as a bonus track on the Japanese Balance CD. It features Eddie singing, along with Sammy, and also Eddie doing some of the drumming!
This video was made by Youtube user “sphen5150”. He says, “This is the first video I ever made. It’s a Van halen b-side called “Crossing Over”. I made it in class about 2 or 3 years ago.”
“Me Wise Magic”:
Great song that was released on Van Halen’s Best Of, Vol. 1 CD, featuring David Lee Roth back on vocals for the first time since 1984!
This video was made by Youtube user “RRJackson”. He writes: “This is a video I made for “Me Wise Magic” using fan footage from the 2007 tour over clips from the 1931 John Barrymore (Drew Barrymore’s grandfather’s) film, “Svengali.”‘
“House of Pain”:
This heavy song is on Van Halen’s 1984 CD. The footage used here, filmed in 1983, is from Van Halen’s archives and remains officially unreleased.
This classic song and video from 1984 was used by youtube user “mbknowstheway” to create this video.
He says, “I shot my own version of the “Panama” video with a Super 8 camera at age 14 in 1984 with my junior high friends. Here it is remixed with the original Van Halen video.”
