    Default Your "Desert Island" VH Album ...

    If you could only have one song from each VH album to listen to while you were stuck on a desert album, which ones would you choose?

    Here are mine ...

    "I'm The One"
    "Somebody Get Me A Doctor"
    "Everybody Wants Some!"
    "Hear About It Later"
    "Little Guitars"
    "Girl Gone Bad"
    "5150"
    "Black And Blue"
    "Runaround"
    "Aftershock"
    "Fire In The Hole"
    "She's The Woman"
    "It's so lonely at the top because it's so crowded at the bottom" - Diamond David Lee Roth

    "If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving is not for you"

    "Be careful what you wish for because you just might lose what you already have"

    "Women and Children First ... The REAL Van Halen III"

    Default Desert Island Concept

    I was just thinking to myself how, in a real desert island scenario, you'd never be able to cherry pick a greatest hits CDR ahead of time. It'd have to be whatever album you got stuck with, and this thread would be the only chance you ever got to choose it on purpose. Otherwise it's just like, a choose-your-VH-playlist-if-you-can't-actually-afford-the-technology-to-simply-have-the-catalog-at-your-disposal-while-you're-on-a-weekend-holiday type of thread. Which requires a renaming process, and that's dicey with thread titles sometimes.

    So I got to thinkin, which album would be best to only ever hear?

    I started thinking it'd be 1984, since it's my favorite VH album. But then I'm like, oh that'd be f'n maddening man. After the thousandth play, and the 15th year in, or whatever, I'd start hating it, and mocking it and shit. And I'd be longing for the day I could actually hear ANY other VH album at all, even VH 3.

    So then I thought, let's pick one I *like*, but that wouldn't completely ruin my whole VH experience. Like, say OU812. Love that album. But I'd rather get sick to hell of OU812 from overexposure than to ruin, say, 5150 or 1984, or Fair Warning or something.

    So I'd have to go with something I wouldn't regret growing to have a twisted love/hate relationship with, like OU812 or FUCK, or VH2 maybe.

    Actually, the debut album already gives me that insane desert island maniac feeling from too much exposure! I just need a sunburn and a bad diet & I'm there.

    I'd take this in a slightly different direction...I think I'd pick songs that I barely ever listen to now, so that it would be a newer experience for me...like the above said, if I'm stuck, I don't want to play stuff that I play all of the time at home...

    Little Dreamer
    You're No Good
    Loss of Control
    One Foot Out the Door
    Big Bad Bill
    House of Pain
    The Inside
    Apolital Blues
    Spanked
    In and Out (Live)
    Amsterdam
    Can't Get This Stuff No More
    Ballot or the Bullet
    It's About Time
    Bullethead


    EEEKKKKSSSS...Hopefully the CD grows on me. Ha!

    Mostly for me would be tunes that are just not worn out to me.


    Atomic Punk
    Bottoms Up!
    Romeo Delight
    Dirty Movies
    Little Guitars (with intro Bitches!)
    Drop Dead Legs
    5150
    Mine All Mine
    Runaround
    Seventh Seal
    Humans Being (Soundtrack)
    Me Wise Magic (BOV1)
    That's Why I Love You (Yeah I know, "B" Side single, only thing I can stomach off of III)
    Up for Breakfast (as much as I hate it, it at least has a good groove, and you'll need the laughs while on a deserted island, so you always have the lyrics to get a good belly chuckle from)
    She's The Woman
    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

    Hurricane Halen - Let's all gingery touch our sword tips!!!

    DONATE TO THE LINKS YA CHEAP BASTARDS!!!!
