    Default Building the ultimate Van Halen Frankenalbum

    Take your favorite tracks (#1 though #12) from the 12 studio albums and build your ultimate Van Halen Frankenalbum. Track #1 must be the first song on one of the albums, track # 2 must be the second song on one of the albums, etc.

    Here is mine:

    (1) Mean Street
    (2) Everybody Wants Some!!
    (3) Somebody Get Me A Doctor
    (4) Hear About It Later
    (5) I'm The One
    (6) Light Up The Sky
    (7) Atomic Punk
    (8) Girl Gone Bad
    (9) In A Simple Rhyme
    (10) Beautiful Girls
    (11) On Fire
    (12) Big River

    I would switch Romeo in for HAIL (#4) and Ice Cream Man for Beautiful Girls (#10). I'm fine with the rest of your list.

    Tracks #4 (Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love, Bottoms Up!, Romeo Delight, Hear About It Later, Secrets and Top Jimmy) and #8 (Feel Your Love Tonight, D.O.A., Could This Be Magic?, Sunday Afternoon In The Park, Little Guitars and Girl Gone Bad) are probably the strongest in the VH catalog.

    Agree with you about 4's.

    9's are pretty good too (LD, WIL, IASR, OFOTD, LG, HOP).

    (Little Guitars intro is 8).

    I messed up my order (I just went off the cuff). Here we go for take 2:

    #1 - Mean Street
    #2 - Dirty Movies
    #3 - Somebody Get Me A Doctor
    #4 - Top Jimmy
    #5 Unchained
    #6 - Light Up the Sky
    #7 - Atomic Punk
    #8 - Girl Gone Bad
    #9 - Little Guitars
    #10 - Outta Space
    #11 - On Fire
    #12 - Big River

    I thought about doing this for about 45 seconds and gave up. Though I think jimmy's modifications to coulda's original list is pretty spot on.

    The only beef I might have with it is track 9 - which would make me choose between In A Simple Rhyme, So This is Love? and Right Now.
