    Default Best Dave Lyric

    No, no, not his bippity bop scattin' stuff like 'Hey remember when that girl was prom queen?" or "hey man that suit is you" or "look i'll pay ya for it what the fuck?" I mean, an actual one-two line lyric - official part of the song deal. One line that just makes you go, "Yeah, fucking Van Halen."

    I've picked the top ten leading blurb candidates. Vote away or add your own. I gotta go with Shadow...Dirty Movies is such a BITCHIN' song.

    Now Who's That Babe With The Fabulous Shadow?

    Nobody Rules These Streets At Night But Me, The Atomic Punk!

    Well Ain't Life Grand When Ya Finally Hit It, I'm Always a Sucker for A Real Good Time.

    I Found the Simple life ain’t so Simple, When I Jumped Out on that Road.

    Can't Crow Before I'm Outta the Woods But There's Exceptions to the Rule, Senorita Do Ya Need a Friend I'm in Love With You.

    I Think of All The Education that I Missed, But Then My Homework Was Never Quite Like This.

    What a Snappy Little Mammy Gonna Keep Her Pappy Happy and Accompany Me, To the Ends of the Earth, Aw Yeah.

    Non-Stop Talker, What a Rocker, Blue-Eyed Murder in a Size Five Dress.

    Could This Be the One That Got Away, I Get the Message, Guess I knew It All Along 'Cause You're a Stranger Here In Paradise You Fool.

    Lemme Show You, Babe, How to Make the Best of What You Hold In Hand.


    You gotta hand it to Dave...when he was on, he was fuckin' on.

    Great list. My own personal fav. also comes from Dirty Movies...

    "Now show biz is so thrilling, the camera rolls, she's willing"

    "They found a dirty faced kid in a garbage can"

    "Drop dead legs, pretty smile, hurts my head, gets me wild"

    "Come see your children, they're lighting up the skies, won't recognize them anymore"

    and of course,

    "Thought you'd never miss me till I got a fat city address"

    I would have to go with Secrets or Well Ain't Life Grand When Ya Finally Hit It, I'm Always a Sucker for A Real Good Time. That entire tune has great lyrics.

    Another good one, but it's solo Dave:

    Was vaccinated with a phonograph needle One summer break; and then I kissed her On her daddy's boat and shot accross the lake

    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"

    Wanna see my ID, try to clip my wings
    Don't have to show you proof of anything
    I know the law friend
    At the eleventh hour I'm goin' back outside
    Give it a try
    I'm your last loose end

    Love that!!!! Best verse!

    That's my second choice.

    A little Zen
    Headed your way
    You'll get it
    Halfway down the interstate
    Four days from now
    It all goes clear
    A Buddhist riff
    For your inner ear
    If it's BROWN, flush it DOWN.

    GO STEELERS!
