    Default Favorite song from Diver Down

    It looks like we missed the 37 year anniversary of the release of Diver Down yesteday. What is your favorite song from the 5th album in the VH catalog? I've combined Intruder with (Oh) Pretty Woman and the Little Guitars with its Intro because there are only 10 slots for the poll.

    love all of the originals on this record. Gotta go with The Full Bug. Has all the elements of a great VH tune. Cool riff, great background vocals, no clue what the fuck Dave is talking about but he sings it so cool that it doesn't matter. All boxes checked.

    Little Guitars is my favorite song. I have always liked Dancin in the Streets.

    Little Guitars.

    But I voted for BBB, didn't want it to feel lonely.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    LG is my fave, but voted for"Secrets" because it's so sexy & cool, but will get no votes.

    Full Bug & Hang, are also A++++++++

    Goodtimes Gone! is fucking stellar, as well, along with the gorgeous sonic tapestry that is
    "Cathedral."

    VH were so close to creating, possibly, their best album, but they got lazy.
    Big Trouble, She's the woman, the early seeds of Blood & Fire....

    They had it right there, written, so many options.

    But they took the easy option (a sign of things to come).

    I remember buying Diver on vinyl, and it was like total fucking blue balls.

    They'd tease you with Grade A originals, then take a dump on your sheets with filler
    bits like "Happy Trails," DITTS & BBB...

    Then it all ended in less than 30 minutes.

    I was like: WTF???!!! This is GREAT, BUT IT SUCKS!!! FUUCCCKKKK!!!

    I do love BBB now, but back then it just felt like a comedy skit or intermission.

    "Secrets" grabbed me right away, though.
    Soooooooo good, and that solo.....Damn.

    Technically "Pretty Woman" is my favorite song on the album. They did a great job on that one. That being said, I went with my favorite original, which was "Hang 'em High."

    This is tough... I really like the album. Lots of good nuggets on here. I went with DITS though... I've always loved the solo. I know it get's ragged on for the amount of covers, but VH always did killer covers.
