    Default Top 5 Eddie "Synth" songs

    We talk a lot about Eddie on guitar, but what about when he is on the Keys?

    I'd like to do a list where people rank their top 5 Van Halen songs featuring Ed on the Synth. I'll start:

    1) I'll Wait
    2) When It's Love
    3) Jump
    4) Dreams
    5) Dancin' In The Street

    1984/Jump. (I always thought these segued together nicely, and were meant to be joined at the hip - ala Intruder/Pretty Woman).
    I'll Wait.
    Love Walks In.
    Dreams.
    When it's Love.

    Honorable mention? Once.

    I always wanted to hear what Eddie had in mind for Dancin' in the Streets. He says it was music he came up with and Ted decided it was perfect for that song. Would have loved to hear an original work crafted out of it.

    Also love the rhythm keys in "And the Cradle will Rock"
    and of course the intro to "Right Now".

    I heard that too... Can't recall where, but I'm sure I read it somewhere.

    ^^^ Major kudos on the Mine All Mine, Cradle, and Wild Life soundtrack choices!!!

    I purposely didn't include stuff like Right Now or Not Enough, as they were piano compositions, as opposed to the "synth" label noted in the thread title...
    These kinds of lists are often hard. With so much great music, how do you narrow it down to just a few choices? LOL.

    Yeah, that was the idea. I wanted to focus on the Synth, and not his piano stuff. No love for Sunday Afternoon In The Park yet? Hmmm. I thought somebody would have said it by now.
