    The problem is that they're not deep cuts to us.

    But, for the majority, i'd say "Girl Gone Bad," and "In a simple Rhyme."

    Brilliant song.

    I would add I'm The One, Light Up The Sky and Hear About It Later. For starters.

    I hear Hail & I'm the one, on regular classic rock radio rotation.

    LUTS is a good pick, though.

    HAIL isnt really a deep cut. I mean, to the mainstream, after Jump Panama HFT YRGM ATBL RWTD Dreams Right Now WIL Poundcake....everything to Joe Blow is a deep cut.

    To the diehard base?

    For Dave, its a tossup between OF, Fools, PCTS, Secrets, and Top Jimmy.

    For Sam, its gotta be Crossing Over and HB, Id think.

    I think Bottoms Up! surmises perfectly what VH would eventually become. It's a party time anthem that would lead to more songs of the same flavor. And pave the direction of what it meant to see a VH show in the future. One big party. Bottoms Up! every night!.

    Still surprised this song never got radio play. Thought in the last dozen years classic radio might start playing it. They've dun that with some other deep stuff.

    You're No Good

    This song has everything, yea its a cover, but only the vocals. Cool bass intro, followed by guitar volume swells, heavy riffage, Dave hitting some seriously high notes during the chorus, backing vocals harmonies, great tapping/bending solo (Ed pulls out a little bit of everything from his bag of tricks).

    What else defines a kick ass VH song?

    Take Your Whiskey Home, from the recorded and released Dave era.
    I worded it that way as Get the Show on the Road and No More Waiting are
    pretty cool demos from pre '78, in my opinion.

    Pleasure Dome, from the Sammy era.

    A Year to the Day, from Gary's month in the band.

    I Want Some Action, for Sam demos.

    HB was in a hugely successful movie, so millions who might not be VH fans have heard it.
