    If I was to choose one song and say that it represented Van Halen my pick would be IN A SIMPLE RHYME. The way the song is arranged is genius . Dave's best vocal performance . The words to the song kick STAIRWAY TO HEAVENS ass! Al,Ed,&Mike tear that song up. If Van Halen returns with DIAMOND I would shit a brick if they would play this song live . I think it's the best Van Halen song ever released.

    "In A Simple Rhyme" is a great song. Does it represent VH, in my opinion it could but there are some other songs as well.
    "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love", "Hot For Teacher", "Unchained", "Jump" all fit in that category. Picking one is too tough.

    WACF is my least fav VH record, but that tune is one of my favorites. I think it's one of Dave best vocal performances. Especially the break part just before Ed's solo.

    Yup, killer tune. Awesome background vocals too. Doesn't Ed play a 12 string on this one?

    Perfect ending song, on one of my favorite VH albums. In A Simple Rhyme is a classic ...

    Definitely a great song as it attempts to answer the question "How many times can a band change directions in a song?"

    I think I heard an angel sigh.

    I would agree. In A Simple Rhyme, just simply kicks ass. From the angel like beginning, to Dave's great: "She made the mountains sing, birds against an icy sky..." part. Always been my favorite song that most people do not know, especially non-VH fans.

    I thought that I was in the minority. I always thought that most VH fans didn't like this song.

    It has always been my favorite song hands down. Glad to see that so many other VH fans think that it is a great song.

    I have always liked VH songs that have such a change of pace in the songs. ie - Ice Cream Man.
