I really have nothing to say about this song. I woke up with the chorus stuck in my head. As far as ’80s hair metal ballads go, this Whitesnake song is relatively inoffensive. I’m not reading too much into the lyrics and my subconsciousness (if anything it wasn’t love and I was dreaming). I’m an emo bastard, but I’m not this cheesy.
Some fun facts about this band, song, and video:
- The band is probably named after David Coverdale’s penis.
- Coverdale originally wrote the song for Tina Turner.
- After finishing this album, dude fired his entire band. Everyone appearing in the video did not play on the record except for Coverdale.
- The woman in the video is Coverdale’s then-girlfriend Tawny Kitaen, star of hit movies such as Bachelor Party and The Perils of Gwendoline in the Land of the Yik-Yak.
