    Lightbulb Try this - Drop one song from the 6 pack

    With all the threads going around with what's the best song, which song exemplifies the classic VH sound, and all around song v song threads - I thought of this one.

    You have to drop one song from the Classic 6 Pack VH catalog. Here's the hard part - it can't be a Cover Song, Solo, Mini Tune (Under 2 min). Has to be an Original song longer than 2 min.

    For me it's going to be:

    House of Pain

    Love the song - just hate the placement of it in the entire catalog. It just never fit in to me on 1984. Felt like a Fair Warning tune and would have been a better closer to Fair Warning than One Foot out the Door.

    Don't get me wrong - love the song - just by the time I reach the end of 1984 - I'm out of energy and not listening as intently. If I kick my day off with HOP it's a different story. Just can't put the song as a top song as my 14 year old self won't let me even some 30 + years later.

    Hopefully this is a fun interesting thread. It was hard for me to even conceive of losing a song from the 6 best albums on the planet.
    Later.

    The six pack albums are not long enough to drop songs imo. The longest is 34 mins.

    I think he said it can't be a cover. Otherwise I'd agree. The one I would drop is Jamie's Cryin.

    Ahh. my bad!! I didn't read the whole post. That's a lot more difficult!

    Not a huge fan of Top Jimmy, and of course sick of hearing Jump and ATBL, though I understand their historical value. So I'd prob have to go with Top Jimmy (He's the King... OHHHHH JIMMY!)

    I was going to take it a step further and drop a song from each album of the six pack...but then I couldn't eliminate a song that matched the criteria from Fair Warning, so I wussed out of that idea.

    My one song to axe from the entire six pack though... Loss of Control

    I was going to go with that, but the drum track is just too insane to be dropped! One of Al's most underrated tracks!
    Song is definitely pretty silly lyrically.

    Loss Of Control. Musically its awesome but I'm not big on the vocals and that one. Lead and BV's
    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney

    If forced to pick I’d say Loss Of Control.

    Never cared for that one.
