    2 Sammy pop/rock powerhouses. I think my 2 fav songs by him.

    There's Only One Way To Rock vs I Can't Drive 55
    Both are pretty cheesy... but 55 is unredeemable.

    ----

    Dave Bracket:

    Goin' Crazy vs She's My Machine

    Just Like Paradise vs A Little Ain't Enough
    2 of his most pop songs.

    Hina vs Damn Good
    ahhhh 2 of the best DLR solo songs. But Hina has always been a top fav.

    Yankee Rose vs It's Showtime

    Broham, there are some Sammy songs from the 70s, like "This Planet's On Fire" or "Red" that are among his best. There are some tunes from Marching to Mars, like Who Has The Right and others that could be among his best. A few Dave tunes post VH (not many). That's all I'm saying, compadre.

    If that is the best their solo careers delivered...I mean damn, when you put it that way....
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    I thought something similar but realize because it is his name in the thread title they are some of his favorites. Not necessarily representative of their best overall but just a subjective personal favorite listing.

    Black Sand is my #1 favorite DLR solo tune. There are several others.

    Plain Jane & Shack A Doobie are a couple Sammy tunes I like.
