    Yeah...they are all so close though! If I went to 20, it would probably be the entire Fair Warning album.

    Hmmmmm - in no order
    Me Wise Magic; just because it was a return to 'classic VH' and the song fucking rips.
    Humans Being; I love the guitar solo!
    Panama
    Unchained
    Hot for teacher
    Don't Tell Me
    Right Now - love the meaning behind it
    Stay Frosty; just classic fun. It's tragic they didn't promote this song more
    Eruption
    Top of the World - played that song at our wedding, it just means a lot to me for that reason
    Winners come and go; legends are forever.

    Drop Dead Legs. - tied with DC's Back In Black for most badass, monster guitar riff of all time
    Good Enough. - any questions that Van Hagar might not work are put to rest within 20 seconds. one of the best opening tracks to any album.
    Pleasure Dome. - a deeper more expansive VH we never saw too much of sadly. loads of great sections, twists and turns. epic
    Jamie's Cryin. - one of the most perfect pop songs ever written? even the lack of a solo can't lessen its greatness
    Secrets. - chilled and more sensitive (*spit*) side of DLR. amazing songwriting and harmonies plus one of the most killer solos Ed's done
    Light Up The Sky. - nasty, brooding, uncompromising. cryptic. in fact wtf is it even about? but yeah.
    Feel Your Love Tonight. - a bit cheesy but in the best possible way. undeniable tune
    AFU (Naturally Wired). - powerhouse of a song, ridiculous guitar solo. the track that got me into vh
    Sinner's Swing. - ultra cool riff, and maybe THE best evh solo
    joint 10th place = all the tracks I forgot

    Default Tabulating the results so far...

    Really fascinating so far...

    63 songs got votes, not counting "honorable mentions".

    30 songs got at least two votes.

    2 songs were ranked by 6 people - Unchained and Panama.

    Giving 10 points to a 1st place vote and 1 point to a 10th place vote, I have tabulated the results. Those that did not rank, I assigned "5.5" points to each song (the mean of 1 through 10). So pardon the .5 scores on some songs.

    Here are the top 10 (actually 11) so far...

    Tied for 9th: Right Now - 17.5 points
    Tied for 9th: Summer Nights - 17.5 points
    Tied for 9th: Feel Your Love Tonight - 17.5 points
    8: Top of the World - 18 points
    7: Romeo Delight - 19 points
    6: Dreams - 20 points
    5: Little Guitars - 23 points
    4: Jump - 26 points
    3: Panama - 31 points
    2: Hot for Teacher - 33.5 points

    and the #1 VH song so far...

    1: Unchained - 44 points

    Keep the votes coming and I will keep tabulating!

    Okay, as near as I can come up with (including Live Versions)

    10: Feel your love tonight - The riff just gets me, especially after the guitar solo. Nasty

    9: Poundcake - Between the overall vibe and the video, it has always stuck with me

    8: The Full Bug - Good little rocker that brings back the bar days of my life

    7: Little Guitars - Just love the way the song is played and I gotta admit, the little Les Paul is one I want to see used again!

    6: The Dream is Over - A pocket classic for me, period. Maybe because it was NOT mainstream, I just like the song

    5: She's the Woman - Love the overall club feel of the song. Redone version SO much better than the original one (thank God)

    4: Light Up the Sky - Song just flat out kicks ass

    3. Eruption - No matter how many times live or studio recorded I hear this, it just gets the blood pumping (Lets be honest, then comes You really Got me, and that is a great precursor)

    2. 5150 - Once I heard the live version from LWAN, I was hooked. That song just flat rocks!

    1. Unchained - Hands down, one of the baddest opening riffs ever. Just pumps me right up
    It is what it is

    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.

    I narrowed it down to 18, and this is, essentially, a random list of 10 of those in no particular order:

    * You Really Got Me -- My introduction to Van Halen -- a hard-driving, in-your-face cover -- hit me like a punch square in the kisser

    * Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love -- A mean intro, mean rhythm, mean lyrics -- usually my go to when I fire up the music player

    * Dance The Night Away -- All encompassing, gorgeous pop -- fills the senses

    * Romeo Delight -- Rebellious, in-your-face -- the music and the lyrics say "Don't screw with me."

    * Sinner's Swing! -- Kerouac's frantic On The Road set to music

    * Girl Gone Bad -- Gritty, dirty music, yet melodic

    * 5150 -- Sweeping, soaring

    * Don't Tell Me (What Love Can Do) -- Heavy, dark, like a bad breakup

    * Me Wise Magic -- Captivating tone -- starts at a trot and picks up to a full gallop

    * Honeybabysweetiedoll -- I count As Is & Honeybabysweetiedoll as one song, but to be technically correct, it's not, and although the lyrics are a little creepy, the music is overwhelming

    1. 5150- My all time fav. Complete song all the way around. Sick sick shit
    2. Push Comes to Shove- great bass line, great lyrics, AMAZING solo
    3. Feels So Good- cheesy as hell but i LOVE this song. Probably my favorite solo by Eddie ever
    4. On Fire- Hard as f***. That is all
    5. Cabo Wabo- I know many probably find this song super cheesy but I love the lyrics...this song always makes me think of the beach.
    6. House of Pain- Crunch crunch, punch in the face
    7. Poundcake- The song that pretty much started it all for me. Heard this for the first time in 1993 when i was 12. That was it.
    8. Atomic Punk- Absolutely love this song...the groove, the pic scratching opening...great stuff
    9. Cant Get This Stuff No More- Surprised? I'm not. One of their best...totally underrated
    10. Once- Never get tired of Ed's playing on this song. Love where he goes with it
    WHOAOH! Hey you! Who said that? Baby how you been?

    This is an ever-changing list and always hard to whittle down to 10. I like the Sam and Dave eras nearly equally.

    10) Beautiful Girls - The song just screams "summer" and "good times".
    9) Top of the World - An upbeat, feeling good song. Everytime I go hiking in the mountains and get to an overlook, I think of this song.
    8) Panama - Great guitar riff, perfect for driving down country roads on a hot summer's day.
    7) Judgement Day - Arguably the heaviest song of the Hagar era, this song just fucking rocks.
    6) Summer Nights - Another song that screams "summer". Probably my favorite opening to any Van Halen song (and that is saying a lot).
    5) Girl Gone Bad - Just a badass tune
    4) Me Wise Magic - Great song all around. Everything Van Halen could have and should have been following Sammy's departure.
    3) Best of Both Worlds - "You don't have to die and go to heaven or hang around to be born again, just tune in to what this place has got to offer 'cause we may never be here again"...pretty much sums up my philosophy on life. This song embodies enjoying the moment and in 1986, Van Halen was having fun.
    2) I'm The One - Classic Van Halen at it's best. Cocky, hard-rocking, and having a good time.
    1) The Inside - Just kidding. 5150 - Great opening and riff, great vocals by Sam. I could listen to this everyday and never get tired of it.
