    I love VH instrumentals like the next guy but I can't bring myself to put any of them above an actual song--except for "Eruption," but then again it was only #8 on my list for VH1. "1984" might be the only other exception.

    Even though Little Dreamer was voted "least likely to succeed", it is still a great song.

    Like most polls, that one is wrong. The correct answer is:

    I'm The One
    Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love
    Feel Your Love Tonight
    Eruption
    You Really Got Me
    On Fire
    Ice Cream Man
    Jamie's Cryin'
    Runnin' With the Devil
    Little Dreamer
    Atomic Punk

    Tccchhh.....any majority segment of fans that ranks On Fire that low on the debut...with tracks like JC or RWTD above it....are under a spell of mass delusion.

    Radio fans.

    I think ATBL deserves number 1.

    I'm the one, shoulda been 2.

    I also think Atomic Punk is vastly under rated.

    On Fire would have made a great opening track.

    Such a basic ranking.

    RWTD and ATBL at the top?

    Really?

    Too hard to rank from top to bottom, but I'm surprised Ice Cream Man is so low in the poll. It's so "Van Halen!" Just like all the others, I suppose...

    Agreed! And I must add that On Fire used to be the 1st song the band played during their 1st and 4th World Tours.

    Also used as an opener on some of their club dates in 77. Still my favorite tune on the debut.

    Maybe DLR's finest vocal performance …
