    Default In A Simple Rhyme vs Hear About It Later

    An epic deep cut from Women and Children First vs an epic deep cut from Fair Warning. Two of my absolute all-time favorite Van Halen songs. Almost too close to call, but I'll give an incredibly slight edge to Hear About It Later due to the fact that it contains one of Eddie's very best solos.

    I thought for sure you were going to pick IASR.

    If we go mano a mano with each song off of all six CVH studio releases (61 songs), there are 3,660 different matchups, thus 3,660 threads.

    Pitting the songs off of the four Van Hagar (42) studio releases against each other would be 1,722 matchups/threads.

    If there's a real throwdown and we mix both eras together (103), CVH vs. CVH, CVH vs. Van Hagar, and Van Hagar vs. Van Hagar, we have 10,506 matchups/threads.

    Coulda, you've got work to do.

    Quintessential vh. No other songs from any era even come close.

    This is a tough one also. Hear about It Later by a nose, only because Dave's voice is slightly stronger on that track. Both pieces of music are epic.

    In A Simple Rhyme. That's an easy one. And Hear About It Later is great mind you. Put it this way, if VH had made a video for IASR and released it as their first single this wouldn't even be a question. Can you imagine a video for IASR along the lines of Oaklands HAIL video? Get out....

    Both enormous songs, but gotta go with "Rhyme" cause of the harmonies. mike was spot on.

    Both songs are in my all time top 10. On one hand, HAIL has perhaps my all time favorite solo by Ed. On the other IASR has some of the very best, powerful playing by Alex. Both have great performances and lyrics from Dave, and great harmonies by Mike. I like Mike's playing better on IASR.

    Gotta go with IASR by a hair. Al's drumming is the clincher
