    One of VH's strengths is the creative and infectious introductions they put on most of their songs. My votes for the best intros in no specific order:

    1) Dream is Over
    2) Runnin' With the Devil
    3) Poundcake
    4) Everybody Wants Some

    There are too many to list! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Excellent topic!!! Eddie is a legend in my mind when it comes to intros. They are almost better than the songs sometimes. Some of my favorites include (one off each album):

    Atomic Punk
    Women In Love
    In A Simple Rhyme
    Mean Street
    Little Guitars
    Girl Gone Bad
    5150
    Cabo Wabo
    Poundcake
    Aftershock
    One I Want
    Me Wise Magic

    There are so many to choose from. It's being a kid in a candy store.

    I can't believe that nobody has mentioned Ed's most rip-ass intro ever: I'm The One! The first time I heard it (followed by the rest of the song), my reaction was simply this: [img]smilies/scared.gif[/img]

    His all-time best round out like this, IMO (and in no particular order):
    Atomic Punk
    Women In Love
    Fools
    Romeo Delight
    In A Simple Rhyme
    Mean Street (goes without saying)
    Dirty Movies
    Little Guitars
    Girl Gone Bad
    Me Wise Magic

    Summer Nights
    Aftershock

    Without You (I'm not really a big fan of the song as a whole, but that "scratching" effect he did on the intro WAS pretty cool)
    "One of the reasons I left Sabbath was because Van Halen was blowing us off the stage every night. It was embarrassing." -Ozzy Osbourne

    "When I first heard "Runnin' With The Devil" on the radio, I was stunned and found myself dizzy, walking through my high school hallways thinking, "What was THAT?!"
    Eddie Van Halen was so innovative and kicked so much ass, and David Lee Roth was for a time indisputably the Greatest Man in America.
    If aliens came down and challenged us to a Battle of the Bands to decide the fate of Planet Earth, I would feel very confident putting early Van Halen forward as our champion." -Tom Morello

    i can't list them all, he's amazing with intros.
    obviously women in love because you can't forget that one.
    also the piano in right now gives me goosebumps. if i played the piano, that song would be why.

    Best Intro?

    Claudio Zampoli:
    "Eddie meet Sammy Hagar"

    Edward Van Halen:
    "Hey Sam, Wanna Jam??"

    You thought Ed and Sam meeting was a great "intro", yet your favorite VH album is 1984, and your favorite song is Hear About It Later?? [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img] hmmmm ... [img]smilies/devil.gif[/img]
