    Great topic. Such a hard time picking 1 from each category so I threw in a runner-up.

    I'll take:

    1. Space Station #5 (Runner Up: Rock the Nation)

    2. Red (Runner Up: 20th Century Man)

    3. Swept Away (Runner Up: There's Only 1 Way to Rock)

    4. The Seventh Seal (Runner Up: 5150)

    5. Amnesty is Granted (Runner Up: Both Sides Now)

    6. Red Voo Doo (Runner Up: Tropic of Capricorn)

    I don't have enough of Sam's solo albums to make a list and I don't like Montrose (I know, I just don't like them, can't explain why), but I really like Marching to Mars and 1013, I wish he would go back to making albums in a similar vein instead of Livin' It Up and Not For Sale. If iPod's could collect dust, those two would be completely covered, listened to them a couple of times and then that was it.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    I've got to admit, I was never a huge Sammy fan before VH and haven't paid much attention to his recent stuff. However, that being said, I thought all the Montrose stuff was top notch. I'll give "Bad Motor Scooter" my vote from that era if only because it has sentimental value. Pre VH solo would be "Three Lock Box" or "Heavy Metal", again, as much for sentimental reasons but I also dig the guitar tone Gary Pihl was getting. VH = 5150.

    People, please don't tell, I'm not really a Sammy Hagar fan, but the closest to a good song he got in Van Halen is definitely, "Humans Being".

    hmmm....


    Montrose-
    I Got the Fire....I love this song.

    Sammy-Capital Years-

    this one is rough cause I've been listening to alot of his capital era stuff for the last few months and I go back and forth alot. Probably This Planet's on Fire or Love or Money. I have REALLY, REALLY been digging Catch the Wind for awhile. I don't mind ballads and this is just a really cool song.

    Sammy-Geffen Era-

    All time fav is Can't get Loose...I love that song.

    VH-

    man....I'm a huge Van Hagar fan so this one is really, really hard...5150, summer nights, Love walks in from LWAN is awsome for the same reasons I love Catch the Wind and I think that's an incredible performance by Sammy aas far as vocals and guitar playing, mine all mine...all of FUCK...seventh seal...I can't say for sure what my favorite is.

    Post VH-

    sam did marching to mars pretty much by himself so I'll put this seperate from his other post VH stuff....Leaving the Warmth of the Womb is awsome, salvation on sandhill, LWL, Both Sides now....just a great album.

    with the wabos-

    prolly Returning of the Wish or Tropic of Capricorn

    I agree that Feels So Good is one of Sammy best Van Halen song. Has it ever been performed live?

    No, he hasn't. This is a great example of just how great the band could be when they did something "out of the box" during the Sammy years.

    here's a couple of honarable mentions that I haven't seen mentioned....

    Reckless from the capital years-this is just a bad ass song.

    Judgement Day from the VH years and I don't know what era you'd put it in but I really have been digging Vertigo that Sam and Mike did in Planet Us....there's always In For the Kill from the HSAS concert as well...

    "Swept away" is another one. That puts chills up my spine. The HSAS album is the only album I cant get into.

    "Baby its you" from "Standing hampton" is a classic too.
