    Default Favorite track from 5150!

    Since I'm still celebrating 5150's 20th anniversary, I thought I'd find out what everyone's #1 favorite track from this legendary album is! 11 years after I first heard it, I still think "Dreams" is the album's best moment! Runners up:

    Why Can't This Be Love
    Love Walks In
    Good Enough
    Get Up
    When you're Van Hagar, you're Van Hagar 4 life! BOO YAH!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is a tough one, but whenever best of both worlds starts and by the time it's over, i think it's top 3 songs they ever did. How can you not start singing it.

    I had to go with "Why Can This Be Love?" mainly because it was the first song that was available for us/me to listen to after that huge "1984" success.

    It was total pleasure for me to hear those keyboards sounds, Alex's classic "Brown Sound" snare..., and then that "Woah Oh! Here it comes..." by Sammy.

    That was magical.

    It's one of the best tracks on there without a doubt.

    Summer Nights baby , 5150 in 2nd. I think both of those tunes on LWAN blow away the studio versions.

    I voted for "5150", I jammed that on the way to work today. That's gotta be one of the greatest songs they ever did. Great vocals, great guitar, great drums..everything is there. Notice I didn't mention "lyrics", I'm so sick of lyrics, lyrics, lyrics..if the tune has a good vibe and it sounds good it's good!!!

    The title track, without a doubt...

    One of the most KICK ASS tunes ever recorded in my book...

    My advice is to go for the alien abduction story. Look bemused, dishevelled and on the verge of tears as you recount your story of intrusive and degrading medical tests.
    Worked for me anyway. I still have colleagues asking me what it is like to fuck a green womanoid with seventeen breasts.
    Alternatively just walk in and inform everyone that alcoholism is indeed a disease and that they should be less judgemental and perhaps a little more supportive."

    Definitely "5150." Dreams is a close second though.

    Whilst I love this entire album, the song I listen to most is 5150, followed by Dreams.

    Great polling idea, results are interesting.

    I think DREAMS is the best song followed by 5150 then BOBW. Dreams is just an incredible song......I don't care how un-Van Halen-like it is, it's just an epic tune in my books.
    .
    .
    .
    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.
