    Okay, I just wanna ask what everybody thinks the best song off of 1984 is. It's my favorite VH album because I think it covers the most bases and Dave is amazing.

    I picked Girl Gone Bad. It seems too easy to pick one of the hits, and GGB rocks, from the cool intro on through to the end.

    I did end up picking PANAMA, Glenn. But I agree, GIRL GONE BAD is unbelievable. Just one of the most creative and energetic songs I've ever heard. And Dave is amazing. The solo is one of Eddie's best.

    I agree with HOT FOR TEACHER too. It's an unbelievable confident piece of work.

    This whole album swings!

    Damn, this is tough. I pretty much love the entire album. I could probably narrow my favorite song down to Panama, Top Jimmy, or Girl Gone Bad. I guess I'll give it to Top Jimmy for Ed's awesome solo. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
    "One of the reasons I left Sabbath was because Van Halen was blowing us off the stage every night. It was embarrassing." -Ozzy Osbourne

    "When I first heard "Runnin' With The Devil" on the radio, I was stunned and found myself dizzy, walking through my high school hallways thinking, "What was THAT?!"
    Eddie Van Halen was so innovative and kicked so much ass, and David Lee Roth was for a time indisputably the Greatest Man in America.
    If aliens came down and challenged us to a Battle of the Bands to decide the fate of Planet Earth, I would feel very confident putting early Van Halen forward as our champion." -Tom Morello

    I had to go with Panama. I know it was trendy, and I hate that, but imagine listening to that song and just pretend for a minute that you havnt' heard it about a zillion times. .....it just fuckin rocks.

    Hot For Teacher. One of Ed's best solos and the song is quite the funny tune. I always wished he'd have used the V in the video instead of the Kramer. Just to be different and since it's the guitar he used to record it with.

    Shit, I didn't know that Kenyon. You learn something new every day.

    Still a great video, even with the wrong guitar.

    "Girl Gone Bad" does it for me. I also like "House of Pain" and "Panama", but only when I haven't heard it on the radio for about 4 weeks.

    "Top Jimmy" for me. But I also love DDL and the outro of "House of Pain" is brilliant. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
