    House of Pain

    Yup, this riff he plays along with those infamous last words Dave speaks within the song seems to get me each time. Now, what I think he's saying about in that song is like he had "premenitions" about the break-up of =VH= and what would be cool is if they had a return intro reminicent to HOP to show that they had a subliminal message in that song. I'm prob wrong about the idea but it's still cool in a way to keep dreamin' that pipe dream right? Lol ...

    Pfff, got to disagree EOTN.

    As far as the best feel for an ending hand's down it's Top of the World. Couldn't have come up with a better way to wrap an entire album up than that right there.

    I don't know - hard to choose - "On Fire", "Beautiful Girls", "In A Simple Rhyme", "One Foot Out The Door", "Happy Trails" and "House Of Pain" are all perfect endings, but I'm gonna go with "One Foot Out The Door", I guess!

    In a Simple Rhyme. Not only the bset song to end an album but quite possible the best song VH ever recorded. Just my humble opinion.

    I'd have to agree with EOTN on this one. Top Of The World ends the album in a positive, feel good way. I don't think that another song could really follow that and have a similar effect. TOTW wraps everything up well. Beautiful Girls does too, but I think that TOTW is just a bit more uplifting.

    I hate to say it cuz I really don't care for Feelin' at all, but it does round out Balance well. Top Of The World is a great, upbeat ending to a fun album

    Damn, the outro solos to OFOTD are pimpin' and On Fire is cool too but OF wasn't the ending song if you had cassette? [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img] ... j/k a little I do have a point though. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]


    I'm still going with HOP ...

    Notables would have to be TOTW and Feelin' ...
