Van Halen fans didn't connect with the lyrics or lead vocals on this track, but Eddie Van Halen's guitar work was still on point. He didn't play a lot of slide guitar, but did on this one, showing just how versatile he was on the instrument. "There's a fantastic slide guitar solo on that song," Brad Tolinski, author of Eruption: Conversations with Eddie Van Halen
, told Songfacts
. "It almost makes you feel that Ed could have been playing slide guitar half of the time – it's just so good and so competent. For a guy who didn't play slide guitar that much, it's an amazing piece of work."
