Van Halen – Sammy Hagar – Why Can’t This Be Love? ft Kayla Reeves

By September 3, 2021No Comments

The lyrics to “Why Can’t This Can’t Be Love” showed Sammy Hagar had a more sentimental streak and marked Van Halen taking a more mature, melodic direction, which proved to be commercially successful.

The song helped take Hagar’s first album with the band to the number one slot on the Billboard albums chart which was a first for Van Halen. What was your favorite Van Halen album of all-time? Please share with me in the comments!

The track apparently was written by Eddie Van Halen on an Oberheim OB-8 keyboard and he gave permission to Sammy to follow his keyboard melody.

The song also holds the honor of containing the eighth worst lyric of all time according to the Daily Telegraph for the lyric “Only time will tell if we stand the test of time”.

We hope you enjoy Kayla’s version of this classic!
