    Humans Being. By a country mile.

    Everybody busts ropes for 5150. Aside from the LWAN performance of the song (which indeed includes an epic solo from Eddie), I don't get it.

    To this day, I think I've only ever listened to the recorded track all the way through once. Always came off to me as very disjointed. Kind of like they took two/three song ideas and put them into one song...

    "5150"

    Dreams is a great rock anthem, but NO WAY, there are way better Van Hagar GUITAR tunes. "5150" being one of them.

    Well damn. I still say all the keyboard tunes are the best. That being said, just look at my favorite album and guess which song gets my vote.
    5150!!!!

    I'm in the camp that thinks Humans Being is overrated. "5150" is a far better crafted composition and all around song.

    "5150" is a much better song with a lot more energy and dynamics, but Humans Being is still probably a top 10 Hagar era tune to me.

    But unfortunately with the way the matchups worked, AFU, The Dream Is Over, and Summer Nights I'd all take over both Dreams and HB.

    Could be. Iím certainly not gonna argue that 5150 is a bad song, thatís for sure. Just doesnít do it for me.

    One is a beef tenderloin and the other is a bone-in ribeye.

    Wonít say which...
