    Default What Are The Most Underrated AND Overrated Tracks From Each VH Album?

    Probably been done before, but oh well. Only one track for each from each album, please. And this is from us diehards' point of view, not the perception of the casual public, so

    Cool list, but is Love Walks In really overrated? I would say it's a pretty forgotten track on 5150 due to Dreams.

    Lol, you should see how many times in the last few months people have gushed what a "well written" tune it is on here. I don't think it's forgotten by a lot of people on here.

    I stand corrected. I typically see people talk about Dreams and Summer Nights - never Love Walks In.

    It still gets play on classic rock and 80's pop radio, as well.

    That's the only time I listen to it. Even though it's been at least a year since I listened to 5150, it and WCTBL are automatic skips every time.

    LOL. Skippers for me too.

    I won't say they aren't crafted well. I just don't like them much.

    FW-

    ** come on... this was VH's gateway back to big commercial success after Fair Warning. And setup for 1984 crossover ;-)

    1984-
    Underrated- Top Jimmy

    5150-
    Underrated- Good Enough
    Overrated- Dreams
    ** I know it's a well-written pop song with nifty solo. But a little too straight forward to get so much praise. not to mention lyrics.

    OU812
    Underrated- Feels So Good
    ** oh no i didn't! Well it goes against or with my argument for Dreams. If Dreams is such a great well-written song.. then FSG is right in there too and should get equal love ;-)

    BOV1
    Overrated- Humans Being
    ** never liked it much. Sounds a bit disjointed. Heavy-ish riff/verse into syrupy melodic chorus.

    I agree about "Humans Being."

    It starts off cool, but then the rest of it sounds half baked.
    There's potential, but then it deflates.
    And that chorus is 100 percent VH mach II, imo.

    Again, two very different bands.

    I've always dug Humans Being. I agree the chorus is a bit too much, and many songs were ruined for me once the chorus kicked in, but this one didn't turn me off.

    The beginning is amazing! He totally nailed the whole "storm is coming" vibe. I like the heavy sound, the guitar interlude, breakdown, solo...

    It is disjointed and muddy , but for some reason it works for me.

    I don't think Van Halen has very many overrated songs, but I'll take a shot at it. O = overrated and U = underrated.

    VH: O - Little Dreamer / U - Feel Your Love Tonight
    VH II: O - Women In Love / U - Outta Love Again
    WACF: O - And The Cradle Will Rock / U - In A Simple Rhyme
    FW: O - Push Comes To Shove / U - Sinner's Swing
    DD: O - Pretty Woman / U - The Full Bug
    1984: O - Jump / U - Top Jimmy
    5150: O - Why Can't This Be Love? / U - Good Enough
    OU812: O - Finish What Ya' Started / U - Black And Blue
    FUCK: O - Right Now / U - The Dream Is Over
    Balance: O - Don't Tell Me (What Love Can Do) / U - Amsterdam
    VH III: O - Dirty Water Dog / U - Fire In The Hole
    ADKOT: O - Tattoo / U - You And Your Blues

    Regarding your FW choice for Overrated. I don't think you can really have an overrated track from FW. Most regular Rock fans don't even know about "Push Comes to Shove". Hell, it is probably underrated for the majority of mainstream VH fans out there. Probably only known by superfans like here at this site.

    Also the guitar solo on Push Comes to Shove is enough badassery that it would be tough to overrated it....haha...
