    Default Favorite song from Women And Children First

    Thanks to our good buddy, Number 47 for the reminder that Women And Children First was released 39 years ago today. What is your favorite song from the album that will always be the REAL Van Halen III?

    P.S. Sorry, fudd.

    The album doesn’t get any better than the opening and closing tunes imo.

    Voted Cradle.

    I am torn between Everybody Wants Some!!, Romeo Delight and In A Simple Rhyme.

    Difficult choice for me. I remember when it came out, listening to Cradle over and over trying to figure out what and how Ed was doing to get that sound...it was so different but so r&r! Cradle and EWS are great anthem rockers, but Romeo Delight and IASR are 2 of the best songs VH ever recorded. I am trying to decide between those 2 (and I also love Whiskey).

    Romeo Delight for me. What a great opening song.

    Ed really rips on this song live.

    It's not even a close contest.

    IASR/Growth is simply the greatest VH track of all time, not just on this album. It's literally the perfect VH song. Epic intro with Ed and Al individually showcasing? Check. Dave's best harmonies? Check. Dave's best lyrics? Check. Mike's best backing vox? Check. Mike's showcased bass skills? Check. Ed's wicked solo? Check. Ed's best rhythm play? Check. Al's best time keeping and skin tone? Check. Greatest VH outro of all time with Growth? Check. Best harmonizing and most flowing synchronicity between the four piece players? Check.

    Their magnum opus. A true masterpiece of hard rock.

    So, you’re takin’ whiskey to the party tonight instead of takin’ your whiskey home. That might save you a whole lotta trouble.

    EWS is my all time favorite tune. But Romeo is #2, LOC is #3, and IASR is #5 so it's hard for me not to vote for any of those other 3.

    Take Your Whiskey Home has always been my favorite from it. I wish they played it live more.
    Right Now you're reading my post!
