    I know it’s tempting to load these with non hits, but I’m not going to do it. I love some of the songs that many here might fond “cringeworthy”, but its my Best Of... So... It would look about like this:

    6. Mean Street

    7. So This Is Love?

    8. In a Simple Rhyme

    9. Jump

    10. Hot for Teacher

    11. I’ll Wait

    12. Where Have All The Good Times Gone?

    13. The Full Bug

    14. Sinners Swing

    15. Top Jimmy

    Van Halen Sammy:

    1. Best of Both Worlds

    2. 5150

    3. Why Can’t This Be Love?

    4. Sucker in a 3 Piece

    5. Mine All Mine

    6. Black and Blue

    7. Right Now

    8. Runaround

    9. Top of the World

    10. Don’t Tell Me (What Love Can Do!)

    11. Aftershock

    12. This Dream Is Over

    13. Source of Infection

    14. Finish What Ya Started

    16. The Seventh Seal

    17. Poundcake

    18. Feelin’

    19. Dreams

    20. AFU

    Nice touch, adding Bottoms Up from Tuscon 79. For me, I LOVE FYLT and YRGM from that show. Two of the greatest extended jams the band ever did on those songs that night.

    LOL. I almost went with FYLT instead of Bottoms Up!. It is indeed, amazing!
    It was between those two and LUTS.
