    For me a couple of songs that I really wasn't sure if I liked until I heard them a few times would be "Poundcake" and recently "So this is love" has been growing on me as well.

    Hmmmmmmm....that's a hard one. I guess it would have to be something off of III. Everything that came before that I knew right away whether I liked it or not and haven't changed my opinion much. But there are a few songs that I started out liking a lot and then got tired of....Jaime's Cryin', for example.

    Basically the whole Diver Down album grew on me. I had just about every Van Halen CD before I finally bought it, but didn't listen to it much. Then I started liking some of the very few original songs on it like Hang 'em High, Secrets, Little Guitars, and The Full Bug.

    Still my least favorite DLR-era album, but it's still pretty good.

    It took me quite a few listens to enjoy VH III, but now I love it. Finish What Ya Started is another one that I didn't like at first. Pleasure Dome as well.

    "Take Me Back."

    When I first listened to it, I thought it was complete cheese. (Now, I only see it as partial-cheese. ) The intro didn't move me until I heard it enough. Then I got an idea on where Eddie was going with it.

    And Alex's timing on it is cool, if you pay attention to it.

    Would have to be material from Sammy/Gary era because I was 9 when VH began and I was too young to understand why I liked VH so the music couldn't grow on me - anyway -
    Sammy era:
    Black and Blue - love it now
    Sucker in a Three Piece
    Get Up
    Big Fat Money
    From Afar

    VH II - You're No Good, Women in Love...
    Diver Down - Hang'em High, Dancing in the Streets
    1984 - Girl Gone Bad
    OU812 - Black and Blue
    FUCK - Pleasure Dome

    I would say most of the "3" album.

    It's not my favorite VH overall, but musically I think it deserves much credit!

    Songs that have grown on me...

    Josephina
    A Apolitical Blues
    and *drum roll*
    Hot for Teacher

    Okay, so I still don't fully like the last one, but the music to it kicks. Still can't get into Get Up off of 5150 though...

    Yikes! You don't like Hot For Teacher?!

    I finally thought of two that I didn't like at first, but now I do. "Won't Get Fooled Again" off of RHRN and Angel Eyes.

    Amsterdam - Gotta tone out some lame ass lyrics, but the music is awesome.

    Spanked - See previous remark

    From Afar - At first I thought this song was kinda goofy, now it's my favorite off the 3 album.

    Loss of Control - Never really liked it before, now I kinda dig it.
