    My favorite part of Van Halen songs is when Eddie, Alex, Mike, and Sam or Dave play on them.


    I miss Van Halen.

    So many, but highlights include:

    ATBL intro

    Mean Street intro

    Romeo Delight breakdown

    Unchained riff with flange, then Al & Mike jump in and it's like sex!

    The finale to "Bottom's up!" ending with the flanged pick scrape.

    Little Guitars intro with Ed, Al & Mike....just love that groove & the way it kinda twists around.

    HAIL intro
    Graver, Walking Ed, refugee from CVH & proud tone chaser...

    I love how both II and DD open with a cover and in each cover, it starts off with a muted quitar melody. Where Have All the Good times Gone sounds like waking up with a hang over and then a quick recovery and your grooving. You're No Good is an almost spooky build up to a slithering melody. Leave it to the confidence of VH to open these albums with covers and allow them to set the tone of the album.

    I love their background vocals that would make the Beatles and Beach Boys proud in songs like Feel Your Love Tonight, Dance The Night Away and In A Simple Rhyme.

    I forgot the fade-in & riff, to Where have all the good times gone.

    I love that riff & kinda bright tone.

    First of all...GROWTH. Period. Twenty seconds of all that makes Van Halen epic. Nothin' beats it.

    Mike's bass playing in PCTS.

    Intro to Mean Street. Duh.

    Alex's lead in to HFT.

    Dave's Black Oak vocals in Could This Be Magic.

    Ed's rhythm riffs in Secrets.

    Sam's lyrics in Mine all Mine.

    Little Guitars' transitions.

    Ed's Steinberger tone in Summer Nights.

    Mike and Ed's backing harmonies in HAIL, IASR, ITO, Bottoms Up, STIL, GGB, HB, MWM.

    Ed's rhythm riffs in Judgment Day.

    Ed's solo in Humans Being.

    Dave's screams in On Fire.

    Dave's lyrics in IASR.

    Good Enough as the opening track not only on 5150, but to the new Sam era as well.

    The Fairburn production on Balance.

    The monks' chanting intro in 7th Seal.

    Ed's tone in Cabo Wabo.



    Geez, I could go on all day. Van Halen rocks.

    Conversely, thereís the whole what parts of VH songs we donít like, which always makes folks squirmy. But fuck it, Iíll go...

    Of course, there is your aforementioned track, which still reigns as all time champ of VH sucktitude.

    Edís tone in all of VH3.

    The brick production in ADKOT.

    The lyrics of Ballot or the Bullet.

    The lyrics of Man on a Mission.

    The patchwork shitshow that is Pleasure Dome.

    The lyrics of Itís About Time.

    Daveís vox in CGTSNM.

    Bullethead. All of it.

    The lack of signature backing vox on ADKOT.

    The mud 80ís anthem ballad qualities of LWI and WIL.

    The sapped time and tone on Jamieís Cryin.

    The SOS chorals in LOC.

    Jump.

    Strung Out.

    CSLY.

    Not Enough.

    The solo in Big Fat Money.

    What do you mean by "mud"? WIL is a top 10 tune for me but I know I'm in the minority on that one.

    Love walks in has one of Edís better solos in it. And the keyboards in that song are fantastic.

    The chord progression and overall sound during the synth solo in Jump. Thee Oohhh and Aahhhs backing vocals in Judgement Day. The first pinch harmonic in the intro to Tatoo. Just trying to think of a couple not so obvious that I still love every time I hear them
