    Unchained vs Hot For Teacher - I'm stepping over

    Girl Gone Bad vs Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love <--really good match-up. Easy for a good girl to go bad. Oops that was Rihanna GGB lyrics. Lazy eyes in the summer heat. GGB for the guitar.

    Mean Street vs Light Up The Sky - the end is dead ahead

    Hear About It Later vs I'm The One - it's a major violation

    ^---I look at this and ask what Sammy vh songs could hold up to these songs in the elite 8. 5150, humans being, crossing over.

    A good matchup will be mean street vs HAIL next round. Which one will lose to unchained?

    Unchained vs HFT was the toughest one. Decided it on Al's stellar drums on HFT.

    I vote for the 2nd track on all four of those match ups.

    I feel I should like GGB more than I do but there is just something about it that has never quite clicked for me, to this day. almost like there's too much going on

    Girl Gone Bad vs Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love - ATBL - I love GGB, but the HEY HEY HEY's are just too much fun

    Mean Street vs Light Up The Sky - Mean Street

    Hear About It Later vs I'm The One - HAIL
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Interesting to see many songs that are "deep cuts" make it this far, shows the depth of the calalogue
