    Interesting opinion!

    Here's my list:

    Jamie's Cryin'
    I love this fucking song. I always picture Dave smoking a joint and eating a cheeseburger outside before singing it.

    Feel Your Love Tonight
    The only negative about this song is that the title likely made them change Show Your Love to I'm the One.

    Little Dreamer
    Underrated gem. Love the vocal. Love everything about it.

    Ice Cream Man
    An electric upgrade of a 25 year old song still stands up almost 40 years later.

    Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love
    This would be the best song on just about any other album. It's the borderline Magnum opus of VH from lyrics to style.

    You Really Got Me
    Another song that many would consider the Magnum opus of the band.

    Atomic Punk
    Holy awesomeness.

    On Fire
    Holy fucking awesomeness.

    Eruption
    Another fucking potential Magnum opus.

    Runnin' with the Devil
    Perhaps the actual Magnum opus of VH. What album has 4-5 songs that stand out like this? None.

    I'm the One
    Holy fucking awesomeness of all awesomeness.

    Good night.

    There's not a damn thing wrong with the album.
    Nothing.

    I'd probably stick Atomic Punk between ATBL and ICM. But it's hard to rank awesomeness.

    Was listening to a live show from 1978 last night in the car and noticed they began the show with the 4th and 3rd "worst" songs on the album.

    VHI is an eleven song tie.

    It's only negative is that it has been overplayed. But every once in a while I throw it on and just bask in the greatness.

    It's a just push play hard rock album, not many of those made, by any band.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    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!

    Well said. If I had to pick my least favorite track, it would probably be Little Dreamer. That is sort of the equivalent of choosing my least favorite Victoria's Secret model.

    All songs on VH1 are tied for first...

    Brilliant album.

    There is no worst. Favorite to least favorite. Ha. 20 years ago, 2 years ago, some of them might be in a different order, but I'm The One has always been at the top, Eruption, ATBL and On Fire near the top and Jamie has always been my least favorite.

    IMO, this is not only the most underrated track on the first Van Halen album, but quite possibly the most underrated track in the entire VH catalog ...
