    Default Rank the First Singles

    Not sure if this has been discussed already but I thought I'd throw it out there....Since there has been so much backlash against Tattoo as the first single, I was wondering where it would rank amongst the other first singles from the first 6 VH albums. Interestingly, almost all of them fall into the middle of the pack at best in regards to their individual albums. Here's my ratings:
    1. Cradle Will Rock- Great song and among the best on the album
    2. So This is Love- Good song but in the middle of the pack for the rest of FW
    3. Your Really Got Me- Good cover but again not among the cream of the crop from the first record
    4. Tattoo- I don't mind this song nearly as much as some do, but again middle of the pack for ADKOT
    5. Pretty Woman- Again, middle of the pack at best on a relatively weak album.
    6. Dance the Night Away- One of the weakest songs on VHII
    7. Jump- Worst song on 1984.

    It seems like there is a pattern here...what do you all think?

    IMO, the only great first singles VH have ever released were Don't Tell Me & Humans Being.

    1. Cradle - one of the worst on WACF
    2. STIL - one of the best of FW
    3. YRGM - one of the worst on VH1
    4. Tattoo - bottom 3 of ADKOT
    5. PW - Middle at best
    6. DTNA - up at the top of VH2, Light up the Sky is the only song possibly better IMO
    7. Jump - top 3 songs on 1984....which I always thought was 1 of the weakest albums of VH with DLR (Still better than all of the Van Hagar albums)
    Right here I say....

    "Me Wise Magic," is, imo, the best, first Van Halen single ever released. Great song with great production. "Humans Being" is a close second.
    Springfield, MASS. - Hartford, CONN. =VH= Fans UNITE!
