    I've seen many threads about DLR-VH vs. SH-VH or even songs vs. songs. But how about if we take all the songs that VH ever done, Any era it doesn't matter and make a poll of which ones are Overrated and which are Underrated. and they have many to choose.
    This are my choices:

    Overrated
    Ice Cream Man
    Best of Both Worlds
    Dreams
    Can't get this stuff no more
    Sucker in a 3 piece


    Underrated
    Push comes to shove
    Once
    Light up the sky
    Me wise magic
    Secrets


    I know it's not the most exciting post here,
    but what else are we going to talk about today.??? [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img]
    Do you think we migth still have to wait anyway?

    This is a cool topic, but it's VH related. Can somebody throw this bad boy over to the Songs Forum?

    I'll meet you over there. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    I'm sorry, but I just don't consider any Van Halen songs to be overrated. I mean, even the songs that Sammy Hagar did that I don't care for, overrated would not be the word I'd use. Eddie is just too awesome.

    Aside from Eddie's coolness... [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    there/somewhere has to be a song from them that was way overhyped a didn't lived to his potential, or a song that you migth think wasn't their best work!
    Being a fan for a long time I'd say there are at least a couple [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img]

    Jump is the overrated song off the top of my head...it's played WAY too much at public events and is often the only VH played at 'em. People associate Van Halen with Jump and fail to realize there were 11 other studio albums besides 1984. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]
    I'm one of those crazies on your block.

    I have to agree with JWS_5150, Jump is over rated and has been played way to much IMHO. I usually skip over it because it was over played. As for underated, and I know I will get crap for this one, but I love I'll Wait. I love the groove and the solo. And then of course my fav VH song, Drop Dead Legs! Anything off of Fair Warning also.

    I agree JUMP is not overrated but overplayed!
    and I have to agree again on "5150" and "I'll Wait" at being underrated.
    Comes to mind now a question that I have always try to find an answer but have never gotten?
    Why the hell "Crossing Over" was left out of the Balance album? I have always seen that song between Deja Vu and Feelin' as a great way to finish that record. But someone at A&R decided to left it out as a B side to a single. [img]smilies/mad.gif[/img]
    and what about "Human Beings" [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img]
    Do you think we migth still have to wait anyway?

    I'd say Jump is over-rated just because it's the one song that any person who has ever heard the radio can point out as Van Halen.

    Studio wise, it's awesome, but live I would say that Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love is over rated. Having heard a few bootlegs, I think this is one song they could stand to remove from the setlist. Not that they don't play it well, I'm just tired of hearing it in every set list.

    Under-rated songs-There are so many. Even though they released singles all along, they were never a hit singles type band until 1984, so there's a ton of songs that I would consider under-rated. A few would be "Dirty Movies", Little Guitars, Secrets, Light Up the Sky, On Fire, Little Dreamer and In a Simple Rhyme.

    That's right Glenn---Glad that you recognized the importance of "Dirty Movies"

    I am constantly attempting to convince others that that song is the absolute best Van Halen number committed to wax!
