Van Halen - Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love



"Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love" is about casual sex, something David Lee Roth was known for. He had the roadies give out backstage passes to beautiful women at Van Halen's concerts and offered a $100 reward if the roadie sent one back he slept with.

Van Halen played this at many of their early shows before they got a record deal. They included it on a demo Gene Simmons produced for them in 1977.

This song gets at least as much radio play now as when it first came out. Van Halen took a few years to get a big following, so many of their early songs are now Classic Rock staples because they were never overplayed when they first came out.


Lyrics


I heard the news baby, all about your disease

Yeah you may have all you want, baby, but I got somethin' you need

Oh yeah, ain't talkin' 'bout love

My love is rotten to the core

Ain't talkin' 'bout love

Just like I told you before, yeah before

You know you're semi-good lookin', and on the streets again

Oh yeah you think you're really cookin' baby, you better find yourself a friend

My friend, ain't talkin' 'bout love

My love is rotten to the core

Ain't talkin' 'bout love

Just like I told you before, uh before, uh before, before

Ain't talkin' 'bout love

Babe it's rotten to the core

Ain't talkin' 'bout love

Just like I told you before, uh before

I been to the edge, an' there I stood an' looked down

You know I lost a lot of friends there baby, I got no time to mess around

Mmmm, so if you want it got to bleed for it baby

Yeah, got to got to bleed baby

Mmmm, you got to got to bleed baby

Hey, got to got to bleed baby

Ain't talkin' 'bout love

My love is rotten to the core

Ain't talkin' 'bout love

Just like I told you before, before, before

Ain't talkin' 'bout love

Don't wanna talk about love

Don't need to talk about love

Ain't gonna talk about love, no more, no more, ah

Hey Hey Hey

Hey Hey Hey
