    I agree, but we're in a minority here dude

    Sammy: Hey, Eddie. I've done the ones about a chick being a piece of meat, unrequited love, and fighting the bastards. What about following our dreams, 'world turns black and white'

    Eddie: Whatever, maybe you can set it to this really 'rocking' keyboard riff.

    Sammy: Run,run, run away. Like a train runnin of the tracks.

    Eddie: Sammy, dude. I don't care -do what you have to. I won't listen to the lyrics for 10 years anyway.

    Sammy: I guess you don't want to hear about loving aliens then?

    Mike: Don't forget the airplanes!

    There are only about 6 sammyera songs that I REALLY can't stand

    But I remember when my friends and I first heard Dreams, we laughed our asses off!

    We were going around singing "the sun will come up tommorrow, bet your bottom dollar that tommorrow there'll be sun"

    I wrote an album review for my school newspaper when 5150 came out, and I remember commenting on how that song sounded like something from 'Little Orphan Annie"

    but the part that KILLED me is when Van Halen did the secret gig in LA and shot that video for this song---I was throwing up! all the people there rockin' to it like it was "Whole lotta Love" or something! Then people started wandering around saying "man that Dreams song is KILLAH!!"

    How do you go from songs like 'Hang em High' and 'Automic Punk' to "we'll get higher and higher leave it all behind"????

    I'm not trying to insult the intelligence of some of the fans because I know that if you had a choice between 'Mean Street' and 'Dreams' , you would pick 'Mean Street'.

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

    Just six!!! Damn you Sammy freaks I count about 8, and they put most of them on BOV1

    Let's see:
    WCTBL - First song I heard from 5150, almost puked.
    Dreams
    Love Walks In - I agree with ddregs on this one
    When it's Love - though it's pretty cool live
    Right Now
    Spanked
    Top of The World
    Can't Stop Loving You

    I kinda like some of the Sammy songs that are much maligned though. Inside, Runaround and Amsterdam are all cool with me for example.

    I agree that most of the Sammy stuff they put on BOV1 was a sappy love-ballad cheese-fest, but what are they supposed to do? Those were the biggest hits.

    I think "Dreams" can rock. I've always been disappointed that it's not on LWAN.

    True, though it was called Best Of and not Greatest Hits But the content of BOV1 is pretty much what I would have expected, I tend to skip from Panama to Human's Being, sometimes stopping off at Poundcake. Anyway I burnt my own 'best of Sam Halen' disc a while back, 74 minutes just about covers everything I really like from Van Hagar.

    Oh yeah I forgot Feels So Good. Add that to my original list

    I enjoy a good ass-kickin song like
    'Mean Street' or 'Unchained' like the next fan but I also really enjoy the music that was made from 1986-1995. It was a different brand of Van Halen. Most of the music in general from the '80s was very popish sounding. I always thought 'Dreams' was a great tune. It had two good solos and Sammy 's singing was right on the money.

    May the Phoenix that is Van Halen rise again!

    The Van Halen official encyclopedia states that Dreams was written by Ed, Sam, and MICK JONES.

    It's not my favorite, but I can get into listening to "Dreams" once in a while. I really like the music during the verses.
