    Default What Van Halen song should I do for a talent show?

    I was gonna have a poll but no one would explain how to get one set up on the boards. So any way, out of these songs, which do you think we should do for the school talent show next March?

    The Seventh Seal
    Jump
    Panama
    Light Up The Sky
    Little Guitars
    Runaround
    Runnin' With The Devil
    Unchained(Really don't want to do this one though)
    Finish What Ya Started
    Other

    I just want to see what the Vh fans would like to hear. Obviously if we enter our parents would film and then I'd be able to show you guys eventually. I'm leaning more towards Light Up The Sky, Panama, and The Seventh Seal actually.

    Seventh Seal or Little Guitars. Can't go wrong with either.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    Panama. Safe, well known, most everybody should recognize it--and it still kicks ass 21 years later.

    Panama, Light up the Sky, Jump.

    I'm not crazy about the Dave era, but of the songs you listed, those would be perfect if you nail em'. Good luck with that

    We we're thinkin' Panama, but it might be outta our league(solo wise), still we could nail it if we tried hard enough. Still want more opinions though. 7th seal would be cool because the chanting straigh into kicking everyones faces with a guitar.

    Panama would definently be worth it, and theres not much to the solo anyways. Just about 10 seconds of some simple bending, tapping, and a little speed picking. If you guys can do seventh seal (which you should do if you know it well enough) then you shouldn't have a problem with panama besides the speed picking, which you could totally BS and no one would notice.

    Would you seriously consider Runnin With The Devil? Wouldn't parents get upset with the supposed implied "Devil" suggestions?

    Thanks you guys for the suggestions and stuff. Panama's starting to sound pretty good. I can play most of all the songs I listed (all of 7th Seal,FWYS,Jump) but I definitely think we're gonna go with Panama. Still if you have anymore suggestions or comments keep 'em comin'!

    Panama would be an ideal choice. Its a great song, plus it was recently featured on Gran Turismo 4, so anyone in the audience who might not know who Van Halen is, might recognize the song from GT4. Just a thought

    I reckon you should go with 'Little Guitars'. Beautiful song both musically and lyrically. I'm sure the romantic types will enjoy it.
