    If I HAD to cut it to 12 for an "album", this is what I'd go with. I'm not necessarily picking my 12 favorites, but 12 songs that would make a perfect album.

    SIDE 1
    Unchained (Fair Warning)
    Panama (1984)
    D.O.A. (VH II)
    Secrets (Diver Down)
    You and Your Blues (Different Kind of Truth)
    Dance The Night Away (VH II)

    SIDE 2
    Runnin' With The Devil (VH)
    Hot For Teacher (1984)
    Everybody Wants Some!! (Woman and Children First)
    Where Have All The Good Times Gone (Diver Down)
    Beautiful Girls (VH II)
    Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love (VH)

    Yet another pointless post from someone not invited to the party.
    Who cares about your opinion?
