    Default Fools vs Take Your Whiskey Home

    Which of these two often overlooked gems from the real Van Halen III do you prefer?
    "It's so lonely at the top because it's so crowded at the bottom" - Diamond David Lee Roth

    "The truth sounds like hate to those who hate the truth" - Todd Wagner

    After WACF came out then I'd call the local radio station every day to get them to play Fools on the air. They never did. Cowards.

    Fools or Whiskey? Tough call. If there was a knife at my throat then I suppose I'd pick Whiskey for it's more minimalist approach which I always found appealing in that song.

    Both are killer tunes. Fools was my favorite on that record for a long time, but I'm old and grey now and have a finer appreciation today for the simpler things, like Take Your Whiskey Home.

    Whiskey, it's a song where Roth's songwriting shines.

    Fools by a country mile, but LOVE them both since theyre on the Greatest Hard Rock Album ever.

    Fools has one of the best intros ever but then it also has one of the best outros and I love Al's fills throughout. Mike also gets to shine as well.

    Fools.

    One of the most overlooked guitar intros and riffs.

    Fools - everyone gets a chance to shine! If they ever around to a CVH reunion tour, I hope they play it. I think Dave could still pull it off if he stays within himself.

    Gawd, i love both tunes so damn much!

    "Fools" with the slight edge, yet i think both are absolute killers on one of
    my favorite albums of all time.

    The energy in both tunes is over the top, as is the whole album. I think that's what gets overlooked the most for this one.
