    man - tough to get down to one.

    when I think Van Halen, probably "Runnin' with the Devil" comes to mind first

    Top Jimmy, Ain't Talkin' Bout Love, Simple Rhyme, Little Dreamer, and dozens more all in contention

    "Panama" was the first tune I ever learned completely from front to back/. I haven't played it in years, but I still rock out to it whenever I hear it.

    Normally I'd go with "Drop Dead Legs" but I'm going to throw out a rarer track from Diver Down..."Secrets".

    "Mean Street"

    That opening completely broadsides you, then the riff starts and your head gets ripped off.

    Smack him twice for me.

    I keep going back and forth between "Dirty Movies" and "The Full Bug" but I'll jus pick the first VH tune I ever heard, "So This Is Love" but not the version on Fair Warning. This one is the ****! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jo-V7gMdCbQ
    Ed's on fire and anyone who says Mike added nothing to VH can kiss my ass. I get off more watching this clip than I did seeing them live last year.

    That is a great song ..... I love the unique solos he does .... it's like he did stuff back then that he never repeated later. :love:
