    Default The Best of Classic Van Halen

    If you were to make a compilation CD with your favorite 3 songs from each album from the Classic 6-Pack, which songs would you choose? Here's my CD I recently put together.

    I'm The One
    Somebody Get Me A Doctor
    Everybody Wants Some!
    Hear About It Later
    Hang 'Em High
    Panama
    Feel Your Love Tonight
    Light Up The Sky
    Romeo Delight
    Dirty Movies!
    Little Guitars (With Intro)
    Girl Gone Bad
    On Fire
    D.O.A.
    In A Simple Rhyme
    Unchained
    The Full Bug
    Hot For Teacher
    "It's so lonely at the top because it's so crowded at the bottom" - Diamond David Lee Roth

    "If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving is not for you"

    "Be careful what you wish for because you just might lose what you already have"

    "Women and Children First ... The REAL Van Halen III"

    I'm going to take a few hours to ponder so I do not rush my answers. I'll get back to this thread when the beers start tonight.

    I'd need 6 discs to make this list.

    Couldn't pick just 3 songs off any of them...
    “And what we have at our fingertips is arguably one of the greatest high tenor voices ever – that was in Michael Anthony. In our tiny little corner of the universe, that voice is as identifiable as the high voice in Earth, Wind & Fire, as identifiable as the high voice in the Beach Boys. Van Halen is an indelicate house blend of both – that’s intentionally. So I would always look forward to that reunion.” - David Lee Roth

    ATOMIC PUNK
    LITTLE DREAMER

    SGMAD

    I would wish that for the sake of this thread question, that you guys would at least group each 3 songs by album. It's very hard to compare when you list them out of order....

    I got the impression that the thread starter wanted us to list our favorite three songs as they would appear on our own compilations. Sure, it would be easier to just list your three from each album, but I don't think he was wanting that necessarily. I could be wrong though.

    Mine would never make it through Warner Brothers, as certain songs in the six pack, though great, I am absolutely sick of:

    I'm the One
    One Fire
    Ice Cream Man

    Beautiful Girls
    Women in Love
    Light Up the Sky

    Romeo Delight
    Simple Rhyme
    Take Your Whiskey (can't believe I am leaving off Fools, but you said three!)

    Dirty Movies
    Unchained
    Hear About it Later

    Full Bug
    Little Guitars
    Hang'em High

    Drop Dead Legs
    House of Pain
    Panama (I know it is sacrilege to say, but I don't like much from 1984 anymore, so overplayed)
    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!

    Preferred pronouns: he/him/his

    Hurricane Halen - Let's all gingery touch our sword tips!!!

    DONATE TO THE LINKS YA CHEAP BASTARDS!!!!

    Neither one of the songs is on the classic 6-pack. I did, however include "Me Wise Magic" at the end of my complilation CD.
