Top Ten Van Halen Songs With David Lee Roth


The Top TenXW

1Hot for Teacher

Jump was their only number one hit, and Panama is one of the best Party songs ever, but "Hot For Teacher" is without a doubt their most popular song ever. Not too mention it is a major stripper anthem to boot. They managed to wrap Blues, Metal, Jazz, and Hard rock sensibilities in this one song. Perfect!.

Insane solo, amazing drum intro, and it doesn't have Sammy Hagar

I'll wait should be on this list. Aside from the phenomenal lyrics and instrumentation, it's perhaps Eddie's best solo in that he didn't overpower the song, but rather created a flawless punchy work of art within a masterpiece of a song.

Insane solo created by Edward, epic drumming made by Alex, Talented bass by Michael, And look- Dave brought his pencil.

Great keyboard intro, Solo is one of his best, Keyboard solo is outstanding, the song is energetic and it makes you want to get up and dance, the chores is so creative and amazing that you will smile so hard and shake your head up and down and it doesn't have Sammy Hagar! VOTE JUMP!

A pure classic. Everyone knows this song, the keyboards on this song are outstanding, his solo is astounding, just hands down the best song with David Lee Roth.

Hands down, best Van Halen song of all time- besides Dance the night Away, but thats not on this list. A pure and instant classic.

How can you not love this song?! You immediately start singing as soon as you hear it

Riff is so catchy, I can't sit still while listening to it! Drum track is also great - fits perfectly to the song (and to the bass line), fills are just AWESOME (especially the first one)! All of this Lee Roth voice makes the best song ever! Van Halen have tons of great tunes, but this one is my favourite.

I digress here!.Jump,Running with the Devil,Hot for Teacher,Aint talkin About Love,and You really Got me are all Dave Era Classics,but to be honest PANAMA is the bands best Dave Vocal and Party Anthem from the worlds best Party Band,and they even play it in the Navy on board ships as they dock in PANAMA!

My personal favourite song by Van Halen it should be top on this lost hot for teacher is not bad but not their best this song is their best

Intro makes you want to twirl your mic stand...

Its one of the first things that come to mind when I think about Van Halen. The acoustic intro is nasty and the main guitar riff is something I am actually learning now.

When you listen to this song from a live 2007 concert it is one of the only songs Dave hits every note in and that is why the song diserves to be higher

12Light Up the Sky

Live recording of a great live band, wailing away. Excellent pictures being painted with words as only Dave can do, making the music more a musician, with your band, try to catch that stop and restart on the fly (twice! ) with half as much energy as the boys do on this song, and you will have pulled off one hell of a feat!

Great song... The ascending intro is unique and awesome and I think contains some of DLR's best vocal phrasing.

13Mean Street
14And the Cradle Will Rock...

Best song intro ever, even better than Atomic Punk (If that was possible)! Best use of an electric piano, also (into a cranked Marshall stack)

15Dance the Night Away

Oh Van Halen II, how you are extremely underrated. You bring us classics like this song has Eddie's best sound ever and awesome leading vocals that don't over do it, as well as awesome Michael Antony backing vocals and a smooth beat by Alex, and this is all this song gets. Such a shame...

16Romeo Delight
17On Fire

Almost as good as light up the sky
