    Definately going with Ice Cream Man on this one. I love the way Dave sings the slower parts in this song. It sounds like he is trying to sing a little like Elvis Presley. Great song, one of my favorites.

    These two are so close and two of my favorites...Sinner's has a slight edge...

    Gotta go with the Ice Cream Man, because it has my favorite EVH guitar solo in it.

    Ice Cream Man. One of the absolute best solos by Ed.

    Sinner's Swing for sure. Ice Cream Man is pretty good, but it's a cover song and SS is so fast and has so much energy in it.

    Gawd! I even had to think about it?

    Well, SS sounds 110% better remastered so that's the only reason I would consider that one on the other hand ICM is just like an old pair of shoes that you never can throw away.

    I like it live back in the day with DLR ice cream bar guitar n' shit but what it came down to is EVH's trademark classic solo's that will forever be inspiring for the rest of mankind.

    ICM by a mile ...

    Both great songs but I gotta go with Sinner's Swing. Ice Cream Man is another song that the radio stations in Chicago play all the time. The only time I can hear SS is when I pop the old cd in.

    I'd have to go with Sinner's Swing, but it's close.

    Sinner's Swing is faster and has more energy behind it.

    Ice Cream Man has got a great guitar solo though.
