    Hagar

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

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

    Big Fat Money
    - intro solo, cool lick at 2:19 and outro solo 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.

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

    Roth

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


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

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

    Eruption but if instrumental are excluded I would go with

    House of Pain
    - another simple but cool riff, nice interlude and awesome outro with Dave and Ed dialogue
    "If you ever speak to me like that again, you better be wearing a cup" - EVH, 1996

    "Stupid neighbors called the cops/Now the party's over/Angry housewife wants my name/Tell her it's 'Ben Dover"

    Sammy Hagar made Van Halen even better. Deal with it.

    Hot For teacher
    Beautiful Girls
    There are about 20 songs I could put for number 4. I've been really digging Top Jimmy over the last couple of months .

    Sam-

    Cabo Wabo
    One Way to Rock- I know it's a Sam song but Ed owns that song live!!!
    Humans Being
    Not as many songs fighting for that number 4 spot here but... Summer Nights

    Beatiful Girls, Cabo Wabo, and Summer Nights all have that VH fun party vibe.

    These sets of 4 tunes aren't even aligned with what I'd call my favorite VH tunes, but if I'm picking 4 songs to represent each era then it's gonna be these 4.

    Roth Era
    1. Eruption
    2. Unchained
    3. Hot For Teacher
    4. Me Wise magic

    Hagar Era
    1. Dreams
    2. Right Now
    3. Amsterdam
    4. Humans Being

    Beauty is life when life unveils
    her holy face.

    But you are life and you
    are the veil.

    Beauty is eternity gazing at itself
    in a mirror.

    But you are eternity
    and you are the mirror.

    -Kahil Gibran
