    What Van Halen songs would you send into space?

    Ok, Ok, Ok...this sounds like a silly post but stay with me now.
    Last year while studying the famous space probes from history, my class dicovered that Voyager 1 had a gold record in the space craft. On the record it was recorded greetings in all the major languages of the world, sounds of nature and great music items. (Mozart got the gig..) Anyway this got me thinking and I asked my diehard Van Halen students what 5 songs would they send into space on board a new space probe. Lets call in "Vhlinks 1". What 5 songs (or maybe less) represent the true and wonderful nature of Van Halen? (Imagine what aliens would make of them...)

    So here are my 5.
    1. Eruption
    2. On Fire
    3. Unchained
    4. Runaround
    5. Seventh Seal

    Lets see little ET get his antennae round those!

    maybe we should send "LOVE WALKS IN", it's about aliens, they will understand.

    Actually Eddie was asked once about this and said, he would put JUMP, because it's the most popular tune, the one that has touched the most people.
    "I could call it anything, but the only word I can think of is Brown. It's just a warm sound. Warm, big, majestic" - Eddie Van Halen on his Tone

    "Van Halen is definitely a ladies band, and I´ve got the Polaroids to prove it". - David Lee Roth

    WOLFGANG did the IMPOSSIBLE, he brought back VAN HALEN, DEAL WITH IT.

    Edward was recently asked by a disc jockey whether he checks out the various Van Halen message boards where hardcore fans have supported Van Halen over the past 5 years of silence. Edward's response? "No, I don't . . . because I have a life."
