    Why Can't This Be Love vs. When It's Love

    I love both songs, and they both get me emotionally stirred up about ex-girlfriends. Why Can't This Be Love was their first # 1 hit with Sammy, it's fantastic LIVE (especially on LWAN DVD, where Sammy plays the guitar the whole song and sings, which really shows Sammy's musicianship, and Eddie takes keyboard responsibilities! Who wrote the guitar parts in WCTBL? Was it all Sammy? Part Sammy, part Eddie?).
    However, I think that When It's Love is better, IMO. Fantastic keyboard intro that starts off slow and soothing (which is even BETTER when Eddie does the same intro, LIVE, on the guitar), then the song kicks into a higher gear, amazing lyrics, amazing chorus (where the band asks Sammy the questions, and SAMMY ANSWERS them, how original and different! Also, let's not forget the "Nah, nah, nah-nah, nah, nah..."), and of course, very memorable guitar solo (I love how in the video, Eddie scratches and rubs his hair after the first note of the solo with the pause, and then SHREDS! Sometimes, when I hear that song, I can't resist to do that rub on my head! I've even got a couple of gf's to do that!).
    What do you guys think?

    First of all, Why Can't This Be Love? did not go to #1. The only =VH= song that went to the top was Jump. I believe that WCTBL did reach #3 though.

    Anyway, both of these songs are great. I love the way the keys sound in WCTBL. When It's Love is an awesome song, but I'd have to go with Why Can't This Be Love.

    When it's Love. Especially live.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    I was never a fan of When it's Love, brings back some bad memories. I think WCTBL has it beat by a long shot.

    For me...WCTBL is gonna win against any song you put it up against primarily because I still remember those golden minutes when I heard my first VH song with Sam on vocals. It was surreal. I knew it was coming any day now, and my mind tried to give me an idea of what putting VH's sound with Sam's voice would sound like for months.

    I was blown away that morning. The helicopter thump of the synth, the odd twang that starts off the band, Alex's signature sound, Ed's grinding, and then Sam just busts open...."WHOA...here it comes!"

    Yup.....here it comes.

    WCTBL, it has just grown on me over the years, I like it way better now then when it came out, and I still can't believe the response it gets live.

    Why Can't This Be Love takes the cake. My second favorite VH song. Although live I hate the thumping if it sounds all keyboardish. It's gotta sound like a chopper for maximum effectiveness.
