    Default Sinner's Swing Vs. Black and Blue... with a twist!

    Inspired by the other song threads of "A" vs "B", I decided to put this one up.

    However, to prevent the obvious bias of the sammy vs. dave debate, you can only answer if the song you prefer is in fact the singer you don't prefer... if that makes sense.

    In this case I'm a Sammy fan but I would say I prefer Sinner's Swing by an inch.

    Sorry, I made the wrong assumption that most people on here would have a preference, even if it was a only a slight preference of one over the other, and I did this in order to prevent bias... but yeah if you have no preference, obviously you can answer.

    "Sinner's Swing" is actually my least favorite song on Fair Warning. I love its energy and jam like the rest of FW, but it does it for me less than the rest of the album.

    With that said, "Black and Blue" wins by a hair. (It's one of my favorite "pick up my guitar" warm-up songs.)

    I would say Sinner's Swing by miles. I think it's pretty much the epitome of the Van Halen sound..

    haha, thats actually why I picked the two, because I thought they were both great "pick up my guitar" warm-up songs.
