    What do you guys think???
    Excellent list. Here's mine:

    VH1 - Feel Your Love Tonight
    VH2 - Somebody Get Me A Doctor
    WACF - Take Your Whiskey Home
    Fair Warning - Hear About It Later
    Diver Down - Where Have All The Good Times Gone
    1984 - I'll Wait

    My list is more about radio airplay. While I've heard all of these now and then throughout the years, they're not nearly the radio staples they could be and SHOULD be. All of those songs, IMO, have exactly what a solid radio song should have....great guitar with catchy vocal hooks.

    Now, for the Sammy years:

    5150 - 5150
    OU812 - AFU
    Carnal Knowledge - Dream Is Over
    Balance - Deja Vu

    These songs aren't about radio airplay, I just think they're some of VH's best that only serious VH fans would know.
    .
    .
    .
    VH with Dave ('78-'84) - The best years....the "real" VH.
    VH with Sam ('86-'96) - Incredible era....."We have renamed this town 'New Halen!'.
    VH with Gary ('98) - Fucking disaster. WTF was that??
    VH with Wolf/Dave ('12-'15) - Amazing comeback. Smokin' album and tours.
