    Everybody Wants Some!!
    Romeo Delight
    In A Simple Rhyme
    Mean Street
    Hear About It Later

    All guitar-driven songs with great riffs, killer breakdowns and no keyboards/synthesizers.

    Your turn.
    I"ll give you my top 12 VH songs and top 17 songs from all bands.

    1 Good Enough
    - I like everything about it, the solo, licks, especially: harmonic licks at 0:37 and 0:45, and the outro starting at 3:45

    2 Ain't Talkin' 'bout Love
    - the intro riff is one of the coolest ever written, plus one of the simplest VH tunes

    3 Judgement Day
    - this is just straightforward rock; plus the "Mad Pianist" Solo.

    4 House of Pain
    - another simple but cool riff, nice interlude and awesome outro with Dave and Ed dialogue

    5 Big Fat Money
    - intro solo, unusual jazz inspiration for the main solo, Little Feat/Nazareth inspiration (Teenage Nervous Break down) when it comes to the music and lyrics, lick at 2:19, and outro from 3:31, the tap and bend at 3rd and 11th fret A string (intro solo) reminds me the very end of Good Enough outro solo, plus the lick right after the solo reminds me Judgement Day-style tapping interlude.

    6 AFU - mainly due to tap harmonic intro.

    7 Hot for Teacher
    - intro plus Hot for Teacher style big band crash ending (two-handed slides, tremolo picking wown the fretboard etc).

    8 Girl Gone Bad
    - this one just grooves, plus those lead vocals ad lib after the solo are spot on.

    9 And The Cradle Will Rock
    - one of the finest solos by Ed.

    10 Eruption
    - enough said.

    11 Summer Nights
    - intro and awesome vocals from Sam, harmonic outro at 4:36.

    12 Push Comes To Shove
    - Eddie thinking outside the box, plus awesome solo.


    Now, al bands inluded:

    1 Van Halen - Good Enough



    2 Van Halen - Ain't Talkin' 'bout Love



    3 Van Halen - Judgement Day



    4 Divlje Jagode - Ciganka

    Ex-Yugo band. Galloping "Maiden" rhythm, tapping solo, whammy bar etc.


    5 Divlje Jagode - Motori

    Motorbike whammy bar sounds, Paranoid-like riff


    6 PRL - Koledzy

    Polish band. The first guitar solo I actually learned.


    7 PRL - Ona kocha ten sport

    Great riff, quite cool and quite complicated solo.


    8 Krokus - Ballroom Blitz
    Tapping solo, which basicaly is the same notes as the solo in AC/DC "Baby please don't go" , whammy bar dives, pinch harmonics, screams - this is spinal tap. I like the lick with harmonics at 3:50 mark


    9 Nazareth - Razamanaz

    Their take on Speed King, plus I like the blues-influenced outro played live. In this clip Manny uses some bent and tapped nites in the solo plus engages DD-2 BOSS delay in hold mode to get this sound just like when your engine crancks but won't start or run. Just to add a modern touch to the very traditional blues ending lick.


    10 Judas Priest - Breaking the Law
    The riff.


    11 Nazareth - Somebody to Roll

    Classic blues-influenced hard rock.


    12 Divlje Jagode - Hopa Cupa

    Great, infectious chorus riff


    13 Deep Purple - Son of Alerik

    Great instrumental


    14 Van Halen - House of Pain



    15 Krzak - Tajemniczy Świat Mariana

    Polish band. Great instrumental.


    16 Van Halen - Big Fat Money



    17 Satriani - The Snake

    All good songs. If I had to pick my favorite it would be Mean Street followed by Romeo. My least fav. would be IASR.

    I suppose it's a unique situation, for me. My dad was jammin' Motown all the time in the 70's. I always dug DITS. Flash forward to '82 and I loved it. As usual, they made it better.
    A must have for the summer playlist.

    OK, I refined and updated the list. The common denominator is that there is a lot of deep cuts on both of 'em.

    My top ten:

    1 Good Enough (86)

    2 Ain't Talkin' 'bout Love (78)

    3 Judgement Day (91)

    4 Big Fat Money (95)

    5 House of Pain (84)

    6 AFU (88)

    7 Hot for Teacher (84)

    8 Girl Gone Bad (84)

    9 And The Cradle Will Rock (80)

    10 Eruption (78)

    Head to head:

    I'm The One --- Good Enough
    Feel Your Love Tonight --- Ain't Talkin' 'bout Love
    On Fire --- Judgement Day
    Somebody Get Me A Doctor --- Big Fat Money
    Light Up The Sky --- House of Pain
    Everybody Wants Some!! --- AFU
    Romeo Delight --- Hot for Teacher
    In A Simple Rhyme --- Girl Gone Bad
    Mean Street --- And The Cradle Will Rock
    Hear About It Later --- Eruption

    I think that my list pretty much holds its own versus the competition . On Fire, Romeo, and Mean Street are in my top 20 for sure.

    You may notice that my list features two songs with keyboards but the point is that I have nothing against Hammonds/keys/pianos when used with taste or not overshadowing the guitar. The MXR flanger electric piano in ATCWR is a very cool, guitar-like, sound, which can be pretty much played using a guitar.

    Not the best Cradle cover but you get the idea:



    As for Big Fat Money, just like in the case of Good Enough, some people don't realize there’s so much guitar work goin' on in this song:

    "If it sounds good, it is good" - Eddie Van Halen, 1981

    "If you ever speak to me like that again, you better be wearing a cup" - EVH, 1996

    Badass. Indeed truer words have never been spoken. Gospel.

    You said it right except should be stated in Big Block letters. Big Bad Bill is BADASS. To the bone.

    VH fans on the net that don't dig it are oblivious to the sheer bombastic sonic bliss of exlemption personafied in cataclysmic multitutes but without electric guitars. Funny that.

    VH TO THE MAX.
