    Say you were approached by a youngster who never heard a VH tune and wanted to know of one song to download that would sum up the spirit of VH, what would it be? One song, no differential between VH, Van Hagar and Van Gay.

    I have to go with Unchained.

    That's a tough one.

    I say a toss up between "Unchained" and "And the cradle will rock"

    Well, I would say, Drop Dead Legs....
    Outstanding guitar work, Excellent background vocals, and Dave speaking of what he knows....

    Or Sammy singing his ass off on 5150 with another excellent piece of guitar work.....

    Fuck....I'd love to hear either live just once....

    UNCHAINED all the way [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] Eddies best guitar riff. Dave at his tongue-in-cheek best. Al and Mike slam on the groove(which features that killer odd-time pre-chorus) and then the catchy as hell chorus itself. Thee definitive VH tune.

    Unchained is a good choice. Poundcake would be decent as well, but Unchained would be tops in my book.
    If it will rock we will roll.

    It would have to be "On Fire". Classic lyrics, riffs, solo...it is all Van Halen. Powerful intro, guitar trickery, the Roth scream (w/Mikey), a true rock n roll song. IMHO, there is nothing that Hagar did that stands anywhere close to this gem. However, Humans Being was a good one. Too bad Sam was packin his bags at this point.

    I like "UNCHAINED" as the VH cherry buster, but I would go with "YOU REALLY GOT ME", only because it was the first Halen tune I ever heard, and of course I would have to tell the story. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    The virgin tour for VH can't be done in a single song... I start with:

    Eruption
    And the Cradle Will Rock
    Dirty Movies
    Where Have All the Good Times Gone
    Drop Dead Legs
    Summer Nights
    Spanked
    316
    Seventh Seal
    Doin Time/Baluchitherium
    Humans Being
    Year to the Day

    If outta this they can't find something to wet their whistle... then they be hopeless and send them back to the factory for warranty work or the Britney Spears zone... yikes!!
    Woke up this mornin, got Blue Moon in your eyes...
