    I don't think Angel Eyes should be on an album, just doesn't fit. Maybe they could have released it as a stand alone single, or a B side to something, like LZ did with Hey Hey What Can I Do.

    Sometimes I wonder how good they could've been with a real, proper manager running the band for their entire tenure.

    Agree to disagree. Its a great song.

    And even though they never demo'd it, Summertime Blues shouldve been on DD instead of both DITS and PW. Their version destroyed all others. Yes, it obliterates even the Who's version.

    For my $, Hey Hey What Can I Do is the greatest B side ever recorded.

    First and foremost, it's gotta be We Die Bold. I'd probably throw We Die Bold in there too, and last but not least, We Die Bold.
    Why do old men wake so early? Is it to have one longer day?

    Default Five demos that should be on a VAN HALEN album!

    Iíll go on record as saying I never liked Angel Eyes. At all. Yep Iím the guy. Plus itís just Dave right? It wasnít really a Van Halen song.

    Itís hard to think which of those songs would be good on an album because I listen to them now and some of them sound really dated so itís like I donít know.

    I think if I had to pick five that didnít make it to an album in some form Iíd go with these. Let it be known that I donít like any of the redone demos that are on ADKOT except for Sheís The Woman, but I wonít count those original demos in my list. Iím also not counting songs that have parts taken from them for other songs, like Voodoo Queen or Get The Show On The Road.

    Show No Mercy
    Babe Donít Leave Me Alone
    We Die Bold
    Light In The Sky
    Woman In Love

    Well honestly there arenít that many that havenít had pieces of them taken for other songs now, or that arenít covers, I tried to not use those. Like Young and Wild was not a Van Halen song, it was a cover. So if you take those songs out of the mix, there arenít a huge amount left that are complete songs that we know of. And technically Show No Mercyís intro was used on Take Me Back, but itís such an inconsequential part of the whole song that I didnít count that one.
