We think this beautiful Van Halen instrumental would be an appropriate song for today. It’s a ballad that could easily appeal to everyone in the family as you gather together on Thanksgiving.
Enjoy this ballad from Balance without vocals & lyrics for the first time. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
We’ll release a new instrumental every Monday and Thursday for the next several weeks. Some fans are wondering why we’re featuring these now. Simply put, it’s because we just gained access to them. To be clear, these are not official releases of any sort.
We’re as excited to share these gems as you are to hear them!
Now, no doubt that most people prefer their rock and roll with someone singing. Vocals and lyrics sure do complete the songs and give them mass appeal. They turn them into the classics we know and love.
But these instrumentals let us appreciate the songs in a totally different way. Now we can enjoy the brilliant instrumental compositions themselves, before the lyrical themes were added. And of course, all those great vocals couldn’t help but cover up the music in parts. Now, we can hear occasional nuances that were hidden by the vocals, making the listening experience FRESH again!
These make us appreciate Edward’s compositional skills, and the musicianship of the band, even more. (We thought that wasn’t possible)!
As for what’s coming up, we have a number of songs from both the David Lee Roth and Sammy Hagar eras of the band. But we don’t have everything. Some of the Dave era we’ll be featuring has circulated before. But none of the Sammy era instrumentals that are on deck have been heard anywhere! So get ready!
