I just noticed I have every Van Halen album on my compy -- I must have ripped my brother's albums -- so I'm gonna take all the suggestions here, and make a compilation.

Damn near the same for me! If ever we ended up on a road trip together at least I know the tunes would great.

 

A few changes I'd make are swapping I'll Wait for Little Guitars, So This Is Love for Sinner's Swing, Runnin'... for In A Simple Rhyme.

 

On the Van Hagar side I'd swap Enough for Love Walks In...I also need to have Mine All Mine on that list somewhere.

 

But I love all your picks! And your favorite tunes from each era are also my favorite tunes from each one.

You consider 'The dream is over' an inspiro rocker? Ha, to each their own and their own interpretation, I guess. I never got an inspiro vibe at all... if anything, a slightly melancholy/"darker" vibe. Great song, either way.

lol, I think you're grasping at straws with this one. ;) "dream another dream," (happy, inspirational if you want to be positive) "this dream is over" (oh, sadness. Weep, weep cry).

All right here it goes - Tattoo, She's The Woman, Big River..... hahahaha joking guys :D

 

Top ten Van Halen songs for me:

 

Mean Street

Hear About It Later

Jamie's Cryin

Feel Your Love Tonight

Ice Cream Man

Panama

I'll Wait

Women In Love

You're No Good

You Really Got Me

House of Pain (forgot this one, shame on me! so it's 11 tracks screw it)

 

 

Some tracks were AMAZING live judging from old videos (like Romeo Delight and Dance The Night Away) but not that great on record so I didn't include them. And I do like the Sammy Hagar era, it's just that I don't like the best Hagar songs as much as I like the best DLR songs so there ya go
