    I'm not a singer biased fan of Van Halen. I like the songs. I actually really like VHIII. And I was wondering what peoples fav. song or songs off of that album are. I like From Afar, Once, Josephina, and Year To The Day. From Afar is nea,t especially the guitar solo. I can't tell what's going on there, but it's cool. I think its 2 guitars being faded L-R? The bridge is nicely put. Once has a really creepy vibe to it. A creepy, but happy one. The solo has a lot of soul to it. I like the chs. in Josephina. And that little run Eddie does on the guitar at the end of the...solo/breakdown? thing in cool. The beginning of Year To The Day sounds kind of, deserty. It reminds me of the Tucson Az. Desert at sundown. I like the clean guitar tone. Welp, thats my fav. songs off of VHIII. Anybody else like this album/have favorite songs?

    Welcome to VHForums BigB! [img]smile.gif[/img] My favorite song off of III is Dirty Water Dog. I also like Without You and One I Want. This topic should be in songs and albums so I will move it there.
    Right Now you're reading my post!

    I have to say I liked VHIII [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] though I have to admitt that it took time to grow on me because III was different than anything before (Dave or Sammy). I have a couple of fav's off that album: Once, Year to the Day has a kick-ass solo and Without You was right up there too (kind of off the wall). Too bad they put Gary's second VH album on the shelf because I was looking forward to hearing it. Saw them in '98 and thought VH had a potentially good singer with them. Boy was I wrong!!!

    Well, to be honest, VHIII wasn't what I expected (I expected a sound like Humans being, MWM .....) but I can't say that it's a bad album. I just don't listen to it as much as Balance, F.U.C.K. or 5150.

    I like From Afar, Once and Year to the day.

    I thought it was a pretty decent album and I was looking forward to bigger and better things with the follow up. Too bad it never saw the light of day.

    I also really like the guitar parts that start 4 minutes and 29 seconds into Fire In The Hole, especially the part that begins at 4 minutes, 59 seconds into the song. Fantastic! That riff could have been turned into another song.

    Thanks TyndellE !!! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    I really didn't know about it!
    Does anyone have a MP3 of this song?

    It's unbelievable that they had to drop it for Josephina
    "That's Why I Love You" sounds GREAT! [img]graemlins/bounce.gif[/img]

That's the way it's always been and that's the way it will always be. Because without the music, what is there? Nothing. There's nothing without the music. You can't even cop an attitude without the music (laughs).

    You can get an mp3 of it here. http://come.to/vanhalen/ Just click on "Sound Files" to the left of the page.

    I like VH3, it's not their best but it's not bad. There are a couple of tunes I could do without but most of it's pretty good.

    I thought I was the only one that found anything redeeming about How Many Say I. Ed's vocals aren't particularly good but the song does have a good message. I like the way Ed and Gary take turns with the chorus. It sounds pretty cool.

    Actually, I liked "How Many Say I" also. Eds vocals didn't really appeal to me, but I still like the song. The little break in it with the chello (?) is really pretty.
