    We've all discussed favorite riffs, favorite songs & favorite albums natch. But what are your favorite moments? You know that little something that gives you goosebumps? Allow me to demonstrate...

    1) Dave's scream at the start of "Hear about it later"

    2) Eddies transtrem riff at the end of the solo on 'Get Up' (especially the live without a net version)

    3) Al's comedy 'drum solo' on "Outta Love again"

    4) the picking behind the bridge at the start of "Running with the Devil"

    ...get the picture? So what are YOUR favorites?

    1. The scream Dave does at 1.45 of On Fire.

    2. Could This Be Magic? when Dave says "Edward, thank you".

    3. Bottom's Up when Dave laughs during the sing along part.

    4. 1984-First time I put on a VH record, this is what I heard, and it still resonates with me.

    5. The scream Sammy does on the song 5150 starting at 5.28

    6. The drill intro of Poundcake

    7. The intro of Feelin

    There's 'Hey wait a minute where you goin?' from the end of "Beautiful Girls" too, showed me what Dave was all about.

    And that laugh in "Bottoms Up", yup, for sure!

    Yeah, I was gonna put the intro of Feelin' on my list too, but I got sidetracked by w**k and forgot. Duh.


    Cool stuff Glenn...

    Another awesome moment is the live Oakland video for Unchained. The guys jamming, the spotlight hitting Dave, "everybody up", the jump off the drum riser. Makes you glad to be alive.

    Also the intro of So This Is Love? at the US Festival. Dave's got on the big sunglasses and Eddie has on the ball cap. I love when Dave puts his hand on Eds' shoulder because I love the personal interaction between bands on stage.

    Some good stuff here, and some stuff I'm not aware of. I'm not gonna repeat, but here's some more:
    The car horn intro that announces Van Halen's arrival on "Running With The Devil"
    That brief moment of quiet during "Eruption", and again before "You Really Got Me"
    The a capella section in "I'm The One"
    "Ice Cream Man"
    "Dance The Night Away" - first song (in my neck of the woods anyway) that got heavy airplay
    Segue from "Spanish Fly" to the opening note(s) of "D.O.A."
    Kiss at the end of "Beautiful Girls"
    "Look, I'll pay you for it, what the f..."
    "Could This Be Magic?"
    Intro to "Mean Street"
    Spoken section of "Unchained"
    "Sunday Afternoon In The Park"
    "(Oh) Pretty Woman" video (what I know of it, anyway)
    "Happy Trails"
    "1984"
    "Jump"
    1984 videos (especiall Dave's grin at the end of "Jump" and that smirk he does after "Class dismissed!!" in "Hot For Teacher")
    Intro to "Why Can't This Be Love"
    Alex sportin' a chrome-dome!
    Rotating platform/stage in "Runaround" video
    "Right Now" video (even though I don't particularly care for it)
    Ed's appearance in "Can't Stop Loving You" video
    New songs in '96
    Reunion with DLR (TBA)

    This is an awesome topic, full of the positivity that Van Halen deserves. Others that keep coming to mind;

    Each of the guys swinging on the cables in the Panama video.

    Also in the Panama video, when Dave runs up onto the riser on Mikeys' side of the stage and pumps his arms in the air. I love that, probably because I never got to see the original VH live.

    Mikey in the Pretty Woman video, he's hilarious.

    Hell yeah that's what I'm talking about! Great topic.

    1. The scream at the start of Unchained. Still gives goosebumps.
    2. The last solo in the Live Oakland vids in So this is Love. That last minute or so is the band hitting on all four cylinders.
    3. Big Al during the live version of DTNA. He is just beating the hell out of those drums at the end.
    4. Many more, but I would take forever to mention them all.
    Out.

    Oh yeah! "Hey man, that suit is you!". The drummer in my first band looked like Eddie VH, and I remember him smiling his head off as he mimed along with that bit when he played Unchained to me for the first time! So many moments....

    "Play it boys!" in Ice Cream Man...

    any more?

    The last two minutes or so of Me Wise Magic are amazing. When Eddie is using that sustain it makes my arm hair rise.

    I think every song has their magical moment or moments in Van Halen's longevity. I am going to list my "Greatest Moments for Van Halen" in my lifetime based on exciting achievements:


    1) Agreeing to open up the 1991 MTV VMA's with "Poundcake" and tearing the house down with a stellar performance.

    2) When Van Halen beat out Metallica's Black album and Guns N Roses "Use Your illusion I" albums for Best Rock\Metal album at the 1992 American Music Awards.

    3) When Edward performed and acted on SNL in 1987.

    4) When FUCK won the Grammy in 1991

    5) When "Right Now" beat out overrated Nirvana and the Red Hot Silly Peppers for Video of the Year at the 1992 VMA's.

    6) When Guitar World Magazine listed Eddie Van Halen as the "Greatest Guitar Player of all time" in the 1996 edition of the "100 Greatest Guitar Players."

    7) When Eddie Van Halen performed and then jammed with guitar greats on the "Les Paul and Freinds" special from 1988 in Brooklyn, NY.

    8) When Eddie was voted Greatest Rock Guitar Player of all time on VH-1's "Rock Show" this year.

    9) The creation of VHLinks a year ago. Where the real VH fans go!

    10) Their album sales and number one albums. Putting them currently at 13th of all time in US Sales. (But one reunion album would easily put them in the top ten.)
