    I know it's been done before, but I'm bored and plus we have a fair amount of new people here in the Forums and thought I would put this out here....

    What's your favorite Van Halen song of them all. Gotta pick just ONE, doesn't have to be the song that "defined" them, or "sold the most records" but rather it has to be your personal favorite Van Halen tune.

    Here's mine (though I'm sure it comes as no surprise to those who know me a bit)

    'Dirty Movies"

    I LOVE this f***in' tune! Right from the beginning drum parts in the intro that dance around, leading into that lightly squealing and moaning guitar work ...all the way through to the great "wolf whistles" Ed makes with his guitar, straight thru to that Funky bass line Mikey sets down, to the extraordinary down and dirty lyrics Dave lays out, it's got it all. Funk, guitar, attitude, a little sleaze, and a hilarious spoken bit towards the very end!

    Perhaps not the most driven song they ever wrote, far from being the fastest, certainly not the most angriest, but regardless, this sucker's got attitude and a style all it's own. That's why "Dirty Movies" is my all time Favorite Van Halen song and has been for a long, long time!

    I just wish somewhere out in bootleg-world I could find a live version of this sucker, but I dare say they never covered it live. And that's a damn shame.
