    Default Dave and Sam's best vocal?

    I wanted to get everyone's opinion on what the best vocal Sam and Dave ever did in your opinion. There is no right and wrong answer and please don't argue about Sam and Dave being better than the other.

    Just list Your top two songs for each Singer. and a description of why if you want.

    Dave:

    "I'll Wait" - absolutely love his Melody and hook on the song. Plus he sings in his higher register, and it's right in his high range and not much rasp.

    "Little Dreamer"
    - once again love his melody, he just sings so well in the pocket in the song. Also, he keeps it mellow and you really get to hear the clearness of his voice with great enunciation.

    Sammy:

    "Dreams" - the difficulty and pitch of this song is incredible, and he does it the entire song. Sam was in his absolute prime during the song. Later records he definitely got a lot more raspy as he lost some high pitch and clarity. Amazing song!

    "Love Walks In" - by far my favorite Van Halen ballad. I just love Sammy's vocal melody and how clean his voice sounds when he sings high. Just awesome

    Dave - live version of Secrets from Caracus or Largo in 83/82 respectively. he's not doing back flips on stage for once and he has a chance to breath and sing. Shows his range that I think he had back then. The end of the song where he belts out a scream that ranges from very low to very high is pretty damn cool on this song live.

    Sam - 5150. I like that he's not always screeching in this one. He has a chance to show the softer melodic side of his voice, which I wish he did/had done more. The screeching voice grinds on me after a while. 5150 has an awesome balance of both that enables me to love both styles in the song. And I really really like the melody.

    Hell, I'll play.

    DLR: I'll Wait. My mom was (I guess still is!) a musician, and I can remember her once walking by my room when I was growing up and saying "is that Van Halen? hmm, he's in tune for once" Things you remember! I think it is a great vocal melody and DLR nails it.

    Sam: Dreams. I mean, c'mon. The vocals on this song are freakish. I wasn't sure about Sam in Van Halen, but after hearing this and 5150, how could you not go "wow".
    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

    Sammy - DREAMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Dave - I actually can't think of one where I've classed his singing as exceptional, but he does have an incredible voice.

    Dave: In A Simple Rhyme or Dance The Night Away...I can't explain why, i just love the feeling he sings those songs with...It's more carefree than difficult and Dave was/is a master of that.

    Sammy: either Dreams or Don't Tell Me...the pitch of both of those songs is hard for any singer but Sam nails both of them with feeling.

    I'll play:

    Sam: Dreams (hands down)
    Dave: Me Wise Magic (I know I'll be in the minority here but I LOVE his vocal there)

    "20 minutes (late to work)? Shit. Last year I woke up three weeks too late.
    My advice is to go for the alien abduction story. Look bemused, dishevelled and on the verge of tears as you recount your story of intrusive and degrading medical tests.
    Worked for me anyway. I still have colleagues asking me what it is like to fuck a green womanoid with seventeen breasts.
    Alternatively just walk in and inform everyone that alcoholism is indeed a disease and that they should be less judgemental and perhaps a little more supportive."
    - graeme on the addiction to this place.

    Both Sammy songs I agree with but Hear about it later and Mean street are Dave's to me.
