    Default What’s Your Favorite Dave Fronted and Sammy Fronted Van Halen Songs?

    What is your favorite studio Van Halen song featuring Dave and Sam and why?

    Dave - Push Comes to Shove
    I think this song really shows Dave's best vocal range in the studio. The intro, Dave has that cool/swagger (anything left in that bottle stuff) the vibrato he has in the beginning of the song after the spoken part is great, and that note he hits at the end are fantastic.

    Sammy - Big Fat Money
    I really think this song is Sammy’s best in the studio (performance/writing) with VH. He really has that Big Rock vibe here. The intro's “Oh Yeah!” is awesome. He really has a presence and command of the song on this one. Sammy definitely on his “A” Game on this track. The high notes he hits are incredible.

    What say you?

    Dave - I'm The One. Its got it all, virtuoso guitar work, great backing harmonies, the patented Al double bass shuffle and a barber shop quartet breakdown in the middle of a hard rock song. The epitome of Van Halen IMO.

    Sam - Runaround. I like Sam's vocal delivery, the drumming is excellent. Listen to some of Al's double bass work during the guitar solo and in the outro. More harmonies, a cool riff, and I thought the video was cool. That's the song that got me into Van Halen my sophomore year of high school.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.
