    What I think the "best" song is or my "favorite?"

    Like, I think "Jamie's Cryin'" is a better song than "Hear About It Later" but I don't like it as much.

    I have to say that I am shocked that HoP gets... obliterated by Panama. I mean c'mon, HoP is sooo groovy.

    There are cool things in HOP, but itís just not really a complete song in my opinion. Itís just a bunch of cool riffs. They really arenít a lot of lyrics to it. The chorus isnít anything outstanding or that melodic. Panama is much more cohesive, and even though I really donít like Panama, I think itís a superior song.

    HOP just always sounded like filler to me.

    Possibly. The ending part of HoP, when the song fades out, is kind of self-indulgent, like the band, or brothers, play just for themselves. My favorite things about this song are: the main riff, this little guitar solo just before the "real" one, and this Dave-Ed dialogue near the ending (Ah-ah). I Love them. The main solo is a bit to weird for me even think about learning it. Too mamy notes or top jazzu - IDK. That said, I never really liked Panama. Good song for sure but just doesn't speak to me.

    I would love a whole album of such fillers. Could be my favorite VH album.

    Panama is fine, but I burned out on it decades ago. Iím just looking at it as a song versus House of Pain as a song.

    Jump is probably a better song as a whole too, but I canít bring myself to vote for Jump ever. I can live with voting for Panama.

    Jump, Panama and Hot For Teacher have been played to death over the years, much like Runnin' With The Devil, You Really Got Me and Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love have. That being said, I will always love all 6 (yes, even Jump) of those songs.
