    Dreams, though it's close.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    Q: who was the biggest douche that you have worked with?

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    Now the new David-Lee-Roth-Van Halen album, “Tokyo Dome In Concert,” is available for purchase, and it’s super, super, super, super, super, super, crazy bad. - Doug Elfman

    Dreams! In my opinion this one is easy. Jump is awesome and really catchy, but Dreams has the makings of an all-time great song.

    Well, most regulars know what I think about Jump...


    So it'l be Dreams by a landslide...although Dreams is not one of my preferred Sammy trax either.

    Jump for me. Dreams is great, but only as a CD version, I can't stand it live.

    Edited (wasn't fast enough): ^ I've always though this one is their worst live song ever . Piano intro is way below week, and I don't like the way Sam goes down in chorus, unlike on the original version.

    Dreams for the guitar work alone, and a totally better structured song.

    DREAMS BY FAR! Don't get me wrong, I like Jump, but there's a million reasons why I like Dreams better. Lyrically, Dreams is a motivational song where Sammy pushes you to strive for your dreams, which makes it an optomistic song, while in Jump, DLR says to go jump off of a building to squander your dreams (pessimistic). (That may not be the meaning of the song, but Dave did say he got the idea of it after watching a guy consider committing suicide).I think I just summed up the differences in the two personas of Sammy and Dave. Also, Dreams is a better song, from start to finish. And it has TWO guitar solos (with the 2nd one being one of my all-time favorites!). Heck, dreams was even chosen as the official song of the Blue Angels! (It was even in a Power Rangers movie, yuck!). For so many reasons, Dreams is, to me, the QUINTESSENTIAL VH SONG!!!
