    Default Favorite song from 5150

    The best album from the Sammy era (IMO) turned 33 years old yesterday, 3/24/19. What is your favorite song from 5150?

    Summer nights. Hands down. Loved it the first time I heard it. Even more so upon learning the opening riff.

    I like Summer Nights and 5150 live better than on record. I went with Dreams. Just think it's a great, great song.

    Summer nights is definitely better on Live Without A Net. So is Best Of Both Worlds. 5150 (maybe my favorite song from the Sammy era) is great on the studio album and LWAN.

    5150, easily.

    The only thing that could've made that song better was real drums (the '93 live version is my favorite) and better production. The song itself is perfect. And it's a motherfucker to play correctly on guitar. I can half ass my way through it, but doing it correctly literally hurts my hand.

    5150 hands down. One of the best Sam Era songs imo.

    Good Enough. As strange as it sounds, I like that breakdown stuff with the 'Rack a what? Well, I'll have some of thaaaaaaaaaaaaat!'. And the guitar riff is amazing, so is the guitar solo. I think the band scored it well by putting Good Enough as the 1st tune of 5150.

    Pretty easy with the title track but for me, Summer Nights and BOBW are close behind.

    "5150" for sure. But I love both Summer Nights and Good Enough.

    My favorite version of "5150" is the Tokyo Dome 89 version. Al's real drums sound great on it and I love how he changed up that main tom fill and incorporated double bass into it. Too bad the Tokyo video cuts out Ed's extended solo with the Cathedral stuff. I have that Tokyo show on audio cassette somewhere and it's the full show, and sure enough, Ed did the extended solo that he did on LWAN. Knowing that, it's actually pretty easy to see the cut in the video version.

    Love Walks In. That song, like the album, is just pure magic.

    Oooh. Nice call.

    Still grinds my gears on occasion that I was unable to land access to that gig. If I'd known about it that morning instead of that afternoon, I could've got in. What a blast that would've been.
