This song has to be one of the original VH lineup's
most underrated songs. It's a great song and I
don't think it ever got the fan's full attention.
Anyone agree/disagree?

Great tune.

A rather complex pop arrangement for them among the early stuff (it would not sound out of place on DD, for instance). Multi-layered big time, Mike's backing vocals are supreme, Ed has the coolest "restrained" noodling in and out in just the right spots and of course Dave's lyrics are killer.

I think its about the same chick that inspired Jamie's Cryin', too.

Now no one's talkin' 'bout those
Crazy days gone by
No one talks about the
Times you cried

I love Little dreamer one of their best songs.

Have you heard it on Live in Argentina '83? Sublime guitar solo and Dave improvising lyrics it seems. Great stuff.

:cool:

Little Dreamer is a highly underrated VH rock classic for some reason even though it's a ballsy ballad.

It's definitely one CVH tune he's never gonna have trouble pulling off for as long as he keeps touring.

Then they went and they voted you "Least likely to succeed"...
