    Love em both, but I'll go with Balucitherium. Al's drums sound HUGE on it, and it's a treat to hear Ed do his jungle animal sounds on a studio album.

    I never really warmed to Baluchitherium, so I'll go with 1984. 1984 was simplistic, yet ominous. It was a great intro to Jump and to Van Halen's more prominent use of keyboards.

    Ed and Trevor are friends, so I'm sure you're right, and he let Ed borrow the riff.

    Yeah- Baluthicherium is longer and has guitar, bass, & drums so it gets my vote.

    But- Supposedly 1984 was initially 45 minutes long so if the full length version appears in the future I might then have to change my vote.
