I was never huge fan of the Sammy Hagar-fronted Van Halen; I was way more of a Diamond Dave sort of girl. I have to admit, though, that Sammy’s got some pipes. In fact, he has one of the best rock and roll voices of all time. Today’s Song Of The Day, “I Can’t Drive 55,” proves my point. As cheesy as the video seems now, (but really, there aren’t many videos from the eighties that don’t make us cringe when we watch them these days) you have to agree that Sammy gives a pretty great vocal performance. Today happens to be Sammy’s 62nd(!) birthday. No kidding! So enjoy a video flashback to a simpler time, but try to follow the speed limit.
