Ok, this may have been started elsewhere (to lazy to invest the time to see), but, your ten favorite VH songs (any era). I'm talking, stuck on a desert island and can only take 10 songs.
Mine (in no particular order):

1. Dreams
2. When it's love
3. Eruption
4. Dance the night away
5. Take your whiskey home
6. Panama
7. Hot for Teacher
8. Unchained
9. Mean Streets
10. Ain't talking 'bout love

Thanks for the reply. God, "I'll Wait". How could I have forgotten that one. Maybe I should have said top 15. Guess I could trade "Take your Whiskey Home" for "I'll Wait". Could live without "Don't tell me...", great song though. "Love Walks In", another great song, but could live w/o. I guess there's just so many classic songs from all the VH eras.
BTW, love your choices.

No problem. I wanted to mix in the two vocalists...Roth and Hagar, and some ballads in with the harder stuff. Pretty difficult for only 10 songs, as they have a lot in their cataloge. I don't know...I guess I'm more a Roth fan, than Hagar...but not by much. The Roth era was more "Let's party and score with chicks, as opposed to Hagar's...lets get sentimental and speak on intelligent subjects. Don't tell me...has a dark theme to it. Too bad it doesn't get a whole lotta airplay. Each their cheezy songs, each their awesome ones. But I enjoy both eras. VHIII I omitted...could never really get into that album, though "Without You is a good track". But not comparable to earlier Van Halen. I had forgotten about this thread, I was browsing through Van Halen reviews and I came across this thread here.

Thanks for the compliment.
