    Default Favorite Dave lyric

    Lots of great one liners from Dave on ADKOT. What's the best?

    I'll go for "No light at the end of the tunnel due to budget constraints" from Bullethead.

    I love how he sings "look at all of the people here tonight." It's a cool nod to the past but done in a fresh way.

    It's all happening downtown.

    Sounds so standard... like a community relations jingle. Then it kicks you in the nuts.

    Too many to wade through yet. One of the strengths of this album is that I think it's some of Dave's best lyric writing ever.

    I'm serious when I say this. That will be tits under a summer night star filled sky. I can already feel the warm outdoors from that song.

    This morning driving to work it was about 38 degrees out and I had the car heat on. This song came on and I swear it changed the whole vibe. I felt like I was listening to Diver Down on a summer day.

    Hard to choose as I think it is Daves best work to date .. In fact after 5 days of listening to this record I will go as far as to say best work to date by Van Halen ... simply stunning result ...

    but goosebumps always come up when I hear the lines

    Forgotten empires
    Lost victories long past
    Every time I bloomed again
    I thought it was the last
    And then something crazy happens and
    Boom!
    I'm doing the victory dance

    Told ya I was coming back
    Say you missed me
    Say it like ya mean it

    and then Ed kicks in with what seems like acknowledgement of what Dave has just sung ... Pure Van Halen brillinace

    A couple of gems from ADKOT that have been making me smile wider with each repeated listen:

    "God is love, but get it in writing."

    "God must love the lazy, shiftless & the lazy, he put so many in line."

    And maybe my favorite Dave line of all time:

    "When you turn on your stereo does it return the favor?"
