    Same routine as the polls for the previous 9 albums: list in order from most favorite to least favorite all the songs on 'Van Halen III'. Not what you think are the BEST songs, just your FAVORITES. If you don't have a take on everything on 'III', then I'd humbly request a minimum of 5 songs.

    Thanx in advance to all that vote, and have a great week.

    The Real Deal

    PS: I honestly do not have any strong favorites on this album; here's the track listing...

    Neworld
    Without You
    One I Want
    From Afar
    Dirty Water Dog
    Once
    Fire In The Hole
    Josephina
    Year To The Day
    Primary
    Ballot Or The Bullet
    How Many Say I
    <a href="http://www.the-real-deal.com/index.htm" target="_blank">The Real Deal</a> does old VH better than any other band in the SF Bay Area. Hearing is believing...

    Might as well start posting somewhere, so I figure why not here, since nobody seems to care about Van Halen 3.

    My "favorites" as far as Van Halen 3 songs go are:

    1. Without You (actually a pretty good song that I grew to like)
    2. Dirty Water Dog (Not half as good as Without You, but a decent song)
    3. From Afar (Cherone being a Dave-wannabee, the music is nice)
    4. Josephina (overall a half-way decent song)

    Those are the only songs I really know enough about to comment on, but really, I did like "Without You". I recently made a 2 cd set called the "Ultimate Van Halen Collection" featuring the 20-so best of the eras. The first cd is primarily Roth, while the second is all Hagar along with "Without You" and "From Afar". I was basically just too cheap to get "Best of".
    How do I know when its love?<br />I can't tell you but it lasts forever.<br />How do I know when its love?<br />Its just somethin you feel together.

    I don't even listen to these cuts
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett

    Sure I'll get blasted, but I don't like a single song on the album. No matter how good the music on a song is I need to like the vocals (except on instrumentals of course) or I won't like the song. The whole album sounds like Extreme to me, and I wasn't very fond of Extreme. The songs seem to ramble without a real structure and sense of when to end the song. For example, "The One I Want", cool guitar riff, but the song doesn't flow, the chorus is God-Awful and it sounds like Extreme.

    I remember ALex doing a promotional interview for the album when it came out for a local station in Baltimore, 98 Rock. The DJs were saying how they really didn't like it, and Alex responded that it was his least favorite album but that Gary came in with a whole album of lyrics already written so they wrote the music to the lyrics instead of lyrics to the music as they had always done prior.
