Interesting facts and trivia about Jamie's Cryin' - 2015 Remaster. By Songfacts®.

This song is about a girl who has a one-night stand and lives to regret it. She wants a deeper relationship and feels used by the guys who hit it and quit. She considers writing him a letter asking him to call (remember, this is before texting), but she knows it will get her nowhere. David Lee Roth wrote the lyrics, which is a little ironic considering his many one-and-done conquests. In the early years of Van Halen, he would have a crew member make sure that some lovely ladies in the crowd were ushered backstage for his enjoyment.

A track from the first Van Halen album, "Jamie's Cryin'," was never released as a single, but it became a fan favorite and a concert mainstay during their David Lee Roth era.

Eddie Van Halen's guitar riff was sampled for Tone Loc's 1988 hit "Wild Thing."
