    LUTS but there are a bunch of tracks close to each other for the top spot. The only tune I love just a little less than the rest is Beautiful Girls.

    Some of Al's best drumming on this album. Really love the tuning of his toms on this album and that this is the first album to feature his Octobans that he bought while on the first world tour.

    Is that your vote or are you in trouble?! Either way, help is on the way. I voted for Somebody Get Me a Doctor, too. Maybe my all time favorite song they do live. Top 3 live anyway.

    This was the second album I ever owned of the six pack.

    At that point I owned 1984, 5150 and OU812 (most recent release at the time)

    So I have a soft spot for VH2.

    I think Roth has no better performance on album than this. This is also Michael Anthonyís finest hour.

    I can agree with this. Beautiful girls needs to be retired.

    DOA. Love that riff! Fucking raw and out of control!

    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    I will have to say Light Up the Sky. I have always loved Alís drum solo in the middle.

    What a great song to open a set list.

    Maybe from the live setlist, but Beautiful Girls is classic Van Halen.

    Totally disagree about leaving Beautiful Girls behind. Just because it may be overplayed for us doesn’t mean it’s not an iconic song by VH for the ages. Beautiful Girls is a stellar track on VH II just like all of the rest of the songs.

    Are we all talking about the same fantastic band here?

    My 2 favorites on VH II - DTNA (as someone else said, never get tired of it) and LUTS (the breakdown “ooh, mama see the firelights”) with Ed’s fantastic choppy rhythm, just stellar.

    The breakdown in LUTS is my favorite in the entire VH catalog, and they have several epic breakdowns.

    I hope they drop it on the next tour, the way they finally ditched Pretty Woman on the last.
