    Default Favorite Song Poll

    Sorry if this has been posted before in the past. It seems like it would have been but I've been here since this place started and don't remember ever seeing a big one with everyone or most people involved. Not trying to do a free post or whatever, but I am seriously very interested in seeing a Top 25 list of VH's biggest online fan base's favorite songs. Especially after ADKOT. And I only posted it in main because if it were to happen, obviously this is where most people would see it and vote.

    I don't know how to do polls, so if someone else wants to start one (if this post isn't annoying and people actually want to do this) that's be great.

    I remember "The Inside" doing this back in the old days and I believe the winner was "Unchained," and "Dreams" was the runner-up. I forget who rounded out the Top 3 but I could check. And I think it was one of those things were you had to pick three or something--I can't recall.

    Anyways, if this happens, my vote is "Dreams."

    The runner's up if it needs to be done that way are "Blood and Fire" and "Jump." "Jump," yeah that's right.

    Sorry if this was schmucky, but I don't think it is.

    With Dance the Night Away popping up in so many movies lately, I've really started to understand just how much I love that song. The guitar riff swings and is fun to play, Eddie's "solo" sounds so "pretty" and "restrained"...and I love the way it swells at the end to go back to the chorus, the drums might be my favorite thing Al ever did, Dave came up with an awesome melody, and the chorus just swells up gloriously with those patented VH harmonies.

    I guess that's my "favorite"...but of course there are many others which are right there with it.

    my sidebar says Mine all Mine and 5150....that's pretty accurate but there's really about 10 tunes that could rotate in and out at just about any time.

    Mine All Mine is probably my all time favorite song by any artist. I can listen to it almost every day and never get tired of it. Dreams is up there...Summer Nights, DDL, MWM, Seventh Seal, good enough...judgement day..

    I could keep going for along time I guess.

    Mean Street is the best Van Halen song, period. Light Up the Sky and Girl Gone Bad share and alternate for second and the rest is just subjective and depends on your mood and when you were born.

    Please close this thread, it's all settled.

    Wow this is so weird. I watched Argo the other day and that song is in the movie and I thought many of the same things. Al's playing is so awesome in that song with the little fills he does. Very restrained but everything fits. He does this one easy "fill" around 2:46 in the song that does it for me.

    I have to say I never get sick of the song even as poppy it is. The chorus is butter and it just has this happy vibe throughout. A song to ride out the 70's

    Funny that I never heard that swell before the last chorus!!!
