From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Finish What Ya Started" is a song by Van Halen taken from their 1988 album OU812. The song is quite different from the usual style of Van Halen and is influenced by American country music. Eddie Van Halen recorded his guitar part on a Teisco Del Rey ET-220 using a clean sound with lots of reverb which is not a tone he is famous for using. The track also featured additional guitar from the band's vocalist of the time, Sammy Hagar. The music video for the song features the band playing against a plain white background with quick cuts to women dancing. On their 2004 compilation The Best of Both Worlds the track is ironically given a sudden stop mid-way through the outro (not finishing what was started) as opposed to the fade out on the OU812 version. On the Live: Right Here, Right Now concert footage Hagar introduces the song as being about sex, about being about females who don't carry on intercourse until their male partner's climax.
