    Default Fair Balance: A Song Mix Challenge

    So I was bored today, and everyone always talks about Balance being The Hagar era's Fair Warning. So I made this play list. The point was to take all of the ass kicking rock songs and recreate a similar feel to Fair Warning using only 9 songs. Here's what I came up with

    1.The Seventh Seal (Mean Street)
    2.Amsterdam (Dirty Movies)
    3.Sinner's Swing (Big Fat Money)
    4.Feelin' (Hear About It Later)
    5.Human's Being (Unchained)
    6.Don't Tell Me What Love Can Do (Push Comes To Shove)
    7.After Shock (So This Is Love, had to put Aftershock somewhere)
    8.Baluchiterium (Sunday Afternoon In The Park)
    9.Crossing Over (I was going to put Big Fat Money here, but a terrible closer)

    So using these 14 songs, make your own 9 song Balance mix. Or don't lol.

    1.The Seventh Seal
    2.Can't Stop Loving You
    3.Don't Tell Me
    4.Amsterdam
    5.Big Fat Money
    6.Strung Out
    7.Not Enough
    8.Aftershock
    9.Doin' Time
    10.Baluchitherium
    11.Take Me Back
    12.Feelin
    13.Crossing Over
    14.Human's Being

    Humans Being wasn't on Balance. But you could sub in "Crossing Over" in its place easily!

    EDIT nvm you already listed it! lol

    I know, I just figured it fit the mood. It's arbitrary I know, lol but It hopefully makes a little sense.

    I like that you added Human Beings in there. It fits the mood for sure. I think if Balance included that song and Crossing Over and removed the crap, it could potentially be the best of the Hagar era – a photo negative of 5150.

    1.The Seventh Seal
    2.Don't Tell Me
    3.Amsterdam
    4.Not Enough
    5.Aftershock
    6.Baluchitherium
    7.Take Me Back
    8.Feelin
    9.Crossing Over
    10.Human's Being

    You've wracked my brain dude! I can't figure it out, I feel like not enough has to fit in there for emotion reasons somewhere.... Im thinking that either Humans being or Don't tell me or Seventh Seal is an Unchained but as far as H.A.I.L or Mean Street im lost!

    I love the music for Amsterdam. The lyrics just...bleah. What a bummer. The chorus had a great hook, though.

    Hahaha fair enough but does anyone really listen to Van Halen for the lyrics?

    If so I think they have a problem, I have never heard anybody go oh man those Van Halen lyrics are so deep and full of meaning! hahahaha but yes I get where you are coming from!

    I would move #5 up in front of Amsterdam (eww, the words) but outside of that good list

    I won't insult your intelligence by suggesting that you really believe what you just said

    I could tell that my parents hated me. My bath toys were a toaster and a radio.
