    Default Top 10 Most Popular VH songs

    Was thinking about this today, and I came up with:

    10. Why Can't This Be Love
    9. Dreams
    8. Dance the Night Away
    7. You Really Got Me
    6. Runnin' with the Devil
    5. Panama
    4. Hot for Teacher
    3. Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love
    2. Right Now
    1. Jump

    I'd say that's pretty accurate. "When It's Love" was #5 and all, but compared to the above it's staying power on the airwaves (in Pittsburgh at least) wasn't as strong. I guess "Eruption" could be on that list, too?

    Nah........Globally, their most popular songs are "Jump", "Dreams' and "Why cant this be love?". If anyone doesn't know VH but you sing 'em them songs, they go "Oh, I know that song"..
    I'd go
    1. Jump
    2. Dreams
    3. Why cant this be love
    4. Panama
    5. Aint talkin bout love
    6. You really got me
    7. Runnin with the devil
    8. When its love
    9. Right now
    10. Love walks in

    Here's Top 10 List from Spotify w millions of plays each. Pretty close and expected.



    Most EPIC looks good, depends on how you define epic I guess. I wouldn't include "Feel Your Love..." seems like more straight fwd rock/blues type. I'd go w most of the same ... ordering is hard though

    EPIC:
    1. Girl Gone Bad (relentless)
    2. Hear About It Later
    3. I'm The One [or: Atomic Punk]
    4. Mean Street
    5. Everybody Wants Some! [or: Fools, that intro is EPIC]
    6. Somebody Get Me A Doctor
    7. Romeo Delight
    8. Light Up The Sky
    9. In A Simple Rhyme
    10. Hot For Teacher

    I had 8 out of 10 without even looking it up! I forgot that Eruption almost always gets played right before You Really Got Me.

    Great minds think almost exactly alike on our "Most Epic" lists!

    Lot of people would know Top of the world if they go to any sporting event. They just wouldn't have a clue it's VH.

    The most "radio-friendly" CVH song is either RWTD or YRGM. But, even back in the day, those were never my favorite VH songs, from the first album. And, over time, they *have not* grown on me.

    Jump, otoh, has grown on me.

    I'd take 'Feel Your Love Tonight' and 'Little Dreamer' over RWTD and YRGM ...
    "There's too many people on this basketball that's floating around the sun, who are too afraid to allow themselves to FEEL" - Edward Van Halen
    "Van Halen was never about the singer..." - a very wise fan.
