    Default What is your Van Halen "Baker's Dozen" ...

    By song positions on the albums? For example, for track 1, choose between Runnin' With The Devil, You're No Good, And The Cradle Will Rock, Mean Street, Where Have All The Good Times Gone?, 1984, Good Enough, Mine All Mine, Poundcake, The Seventh Seal, Neworld and Tattoo. Instrumentals will count as stand alone songs. Some albums have as few as 9 songs (WACF, FW, 1984 and 5150) while ADKOT has a total of 13.

    Here we go ...

    (1) Mean Street
    (2) Everybody Wants Some!!
    (3) Somebody Get Me A Doctor
    (4) Hear About It Later (Barely over Romeo Delight)
    (5) I'm The One
    (6) Light Up The Sky
    (7) So This Is Love? (Barely over Atomic Punk and Take Your Whiskey Home)
    (8) Feel Your Love Tonight (Girl Gone Bad, 5150, Black And Blue, The Dream Is Over and Aftershock made this the toughest choice)
    (9) In A Simple Rhyme
    (10) Beautiful Girls
    (11) On Fire
    (12) Big River
    (13) Beats Workin' (In a blowout!)

    Damn! I totally forgot about Outta Space! I like it better than ICM, which is what I chose.

    Thank God (not Eddie, the REAL man upstairs) that we'll never REALLY have to make one of these desert island types of compilations. VH have too much great music, to limit it down to one album or a 12 song best of... LOL.

    Completely agree. A lot of great music to choose from 12 albums!

    More than 12 albums, if you want to include the extra tunes on the "Best Of Vol 1" cd!
    But yeah, more great music than we know what to do with. A true legacy.

    Like that sticker on Yngwie's guitar says - "PLAY LOUD!"

    Actually, we can include the two Live albums. And, believe it or not, I actually seem to like the three tunes they did with Sam in 2004 more than the Sam guys here do.

    Good Enough
    Judgement Day
    AFU (Naturally Wired)
    Secrets
    Pleasure Dome
    Hot For Teacher
    I'll Wait
    Feel Your Love Tonight
    Little Dreamer
    Beautiful Girls
    Take Me Back (Deja Vu)
    Feelin'
    Beats Workin'

    some tough choices. #5 was really hard. Drop Dead Legs + Summer Nights are 2 of the best VH tunes for me, but I'm coming to the opinion that Pleasure Dome might be the best VH tune ever, imo.

    not sure how I can justify having Take Me Back (deja Vu) over On Fire or The Full Bug, it's almost too cheesy in some ways to even work, but I just love it for some reason.

    Everyone here seems to think Little Dreamer is one of the weaker tracks on the debut, but I think it's one of the best.

    I think the only one I'd change from my original post is removing ICM from #10 and replacing it with Outta Space.
