those people who have just voted for jump are really suckers. just listen to this song and vote it
This song really rocks out! Combining Dave's Vocals and Eddie's kickass guitar technique we got one word... Panama
doesn't have the best riff or solo, but it's just incredible to listen to and sing along to.
Panama is slightly better than Jump.V25 Comments

I've had a few hot teachers over the years - Ajkloth
Double Kick Drum and an Eddie Van Halen guitar solo to intro... doesn't get any better than that.V11 Comments
This is easily my favorite Van Halen song, great lyrics, perfect guitar, well done
yeah the greatest intro of all time - richie4life
This should be their BEST song, the solo is the best one Eddie Van Halen has.
Why all of the top 3 is from the album "1984"? - somekindofaguyV10 Comments
By far there best song I don't know why it's so low on the list
Such a cathy song should be in the top 5 at least Best Van Helen
Great bass, great intro, perfect song. My favourite song from Van Halen. No doubt about it. EDDIE Van Halen IS GOD!
Jump is overrated, this should be number 1. It's easily one of the best Hard rock songs of all time.V7 Comments
This song really shows what Eddie Van Halen is capable of doing... This guitar solo is pure magic - fidelcanojr
The best solo ever by the best guitarist ever.
Isn't the guitar solo something like 120 notes per second? - Ajkloth
Best guitar solo to start a song ever in the history of rock. Eddie Van Halen--enough said.V14 Comments
My favourite song of all time. This feels less like a piece of pop-metal and more like Sammy Hagar trying to convert an audience of Roth purists to the Hagar side. And with inspiring lyrics like these and an amazing energy that pulsates from every chord, he makes a brilliant case.
Has everything: screaming innovative Eddie signature guitar work, gorgeous melody, killer Mike bass, excellent synthesizer, superb Sammy singing, profound meaningful lyrics which are extremely upbeat to the point of being spiritual and inspiring without being overly religious or dogmatic or pretentious, great hook with 'higher and higher'
This is a beautiful song. And I think that sammy hagar is better vocalist than David lee roth. Dreams is more like a ballad than jump that is more like pop
If there was ever one song that showed Eddie could take his song writing up a notch it is Dreams. It sounds like it could have been written for a whole orchestra. Sammy's lyrics are simply inspired. It might not be Van Halen's most popular song but I do think it's them at their finest.V16 Comments
Wow I'm not the only one. I mean I used to listen to Panama and Jump and to me they were just good songs but this one was the one that really got me in Van Halen and made love many others of their songs
The one that got me into Van Hale. This song is just epic.. The vocals are great and so is the music. I'm happy that this is in the top 10. For me, should be in the top 5.
I love that noise that is in the intro and chorus it is awesome! And a great peice of music great lyrics
This song took Van Halen to another level.V2 Comments
Jump will always win a popularity contest, and it IS a great pop song. But its not what VH are all about - raw, energetic and THAT guitar. Unchained is the perfect example.
Love the opening on this song. One of my true all time favorites. Never overplayed.
My favorite Van Halen song. Starts off with absolutely ripping guitar and DLR is at his finest on vocals and lyrics.
This Song Is The Best of Van Halen...V8 Comments
Private parts howard stern turning point of the movie what song do they play? This one baby. Why? Cause the riff hits you hard and roth kills it
Great rift, awesome how it starts right after Eruption. Fantastic album!
Amazing, I love so much this song
This is actually a cover song, originally by The Kinks and known for its riff. So I guess The Kinks should get most of the credits. - Metal_Treasure
Yes, please. Thanks for pointing that out. Van Halen's fine in their own right but the comments did seem to be praising them for what Ray Davies and The Kinks created and which I'm sure Van Halen did as a tribute to a favorite influence - Billyv
Beautiful song that makes you think about all that happens while we are busy doing something else... Not their best from the musical perspective but sure shows their talent with lyrics.
One of the best! Video is meaningful.
Just amazing! No words right now..
What a great band!V3 Comments
How is this so low?! Eddie's guitar sounds better that it ever has on this song. It has a different more sophisticated feel to it and its hands down the best song on the best Van Halen album.
There's no way that this should be all the way down here... Such a classy song and extremely catchy
This song came on during school once. It was during the only class I had with the girl I liked. This song reminded me so much of her, and I believe it is their best.
This, Panama, Jamie's Cryin, Take Your Whiskey Home, and Runnin With The Devil should be the top 5, and anyone who has ears should know that Jump shouldn't even rank near the top 10.V5 Comments
I chose this one cause it has a vary good solo and the bass drums and the singer tie it in so well that is speaks to me
Hands down best song off of "Women and Children First"V2 Comments
This song is amazing, not their best but easily in the top 5's... The tittle and the synth intro make you think it's going to be a ballad, but after the intro you hear those kickass guitar chords that you can "headbang" to... Then the singing starts and its still heavy, but then the chorus catches you by a surprise since it's so beautiful, emotional and it sounds like a ballad... Such a masterpiece! The guitar solo is also pretty good... Great song! - fidelcanojr
Reminds me the most beautiful moments of my life.
Truly great song better than Jump believe Me.. !V1 Comment
People who listened to more than three Van Halen songs know the entire Fair Warning album is the best material the band has released so far. "Mean Street" is a song with actual meaning, made to express emotions and not necessarily appeal to the masses.
This is beyond me that any true fan who can really appreciate the best guitar playing of eddie van halen can not realize how "mean Streets" was Eddie at his peak. Mean Streets is the best song of fair warning and fair warning is the least in the top 3 of van halen's best albums so how on earth can it be ranked at 15. Jesus christ Eddie van halen genuis is his guitar playing and jump is his synthesizer. Where are the true fans of van halen.
yeah really great underrated song should be higher - sUx2Bu
Obviously not the best Van Halen song but it definitely deserves more recognition than it gets. Just listen to the first minute and you'll see what I mean.V7 Comments
Awesome song, you should listen to it
One of Van Halen's best balladsV1 Comment
How is this song all the way back here. It should be in the top 5V1 Comment
Great song that highlights their debut album. A bit underrated, and deserves to be in the top 10, definitely. - The_Acid_QueenV2 Comments
What the heck is this?! Sure it's not the best but it sure needs to be higher! Really catchy song that really puts you in a positive mood. Van Halen for the win!
This is slightly better than jump and Panama. I know all three songs but the intro in this song is the icing on the cake
All the Little Van Halen songs Rock!
