    Which song do you think features the best background vocals from Mike? I think Jamie's Cryin' is probably one of his best.

    Right off the top of my head I'd say Dance The Night Away and You're No Good.

    I have always loved Mike's background vocals. They really add to the signature VH sound.

    Actually my favorite Mike backin' vocal song is an unreleased song, "Put On The Lights". Love the parts "Fast Eddie...get it ready and "Sexy Sadie, sittin' waiting"

    Mike IS the shit no doubt. He vocal's on MWM are pretty burly as well as all the other tunes everone mentioned. Mikey is another reason why Van Halen is so original. We love ya Mikey! Out
