Wow that's rocksV 10 Comments
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.
Jump is the obvious choice here but Panama is where it's really at!V 26 Comments

I've had a few hot teachers over the years - Ajkloth
Nothing beats this intro. - ert1timmV 14 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!
First album and first somg, still my favorite - Joshgbpack12V 10 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"? - somekindofaguyV 10 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.
The best guitar solo
Best guitar solo to start a song ever in the history of rock. Eddie Van Halen--enough said.V 14 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
Definition of a perfect song. Amazing lyrics. Sammys vocal range. Amazing Keyboard. Shredding Guitar. True Rock fans recognize this song as one of Van Halens best.V 16 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
I am surprised that Why Can't This Be Love is this high, but I'm glad. This is a very nice (also pretty catchy) song from Van Halen. Even though I love all their other songs as well, I always find myself coming back to this song. - Element119V 6 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...V 8 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
In my opinion, this song is the crown Jewel of the Sammy Hagar era, and it VASTLY outshines Can't Stop Loving You and Don't Tell Me (What Love Can Do). While those are both fine songs in their own right, I don't understand why they're often rated higher than The Seventh Seal. The riff in this track is absolutely superb, one of the best Van Halen has ever done. I could listen to Eddie's guitar on this song alone for hours and not get tired of it. Sammy's vocals are top-notch, with the "Mother earth's soul" and "Found my mother lode" lines being some of my favorite singing performances he's ever done. Mikey's bass is great, it adds a deeper sounding undertone to the whole song that really helps it shine in the long run. And of course, Alex's percussions are very on-point as usual, his drumming and cymbals sounding very clear and crisp to me. The lyrics allude heavily to the Bible passages of revelation and haunting apocalyptic visions, which is territory I never ...more
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.
Can't believe Jump is No. 1 currently and Dance the Night Away is No. 11. How is that even possible. This is undoubtedly Top 5.V 6 Comments
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..
Best VH song of all 3 periodsV 6 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
Have you seen Junior's Grades?
Hands down best song off of "Women and Children First"
AND THE CRADLE WILL ROCK ROCK ON!
How is this song all the way back here. It should be in the top 5
Highly underrated song
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.. !
Amazing, great song. Beautiful!V 1 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.V 7 Comments
Awesome song, you should listen to it
One of Van Halen's best ballads
Awesome song. Should be way higher. Better than any DLR stuff.
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 song is energizing and fun. Should be higher.
Great song that highlights their debut album. A bit underrated, and deserves to be in the top 10, definitely. - The_Acid_Queen
Love ice cream and this song
Simply perfect... Idiots those who don't voto for this song
Another brill song that should be in the top 10 songs
Deserves top ten
This song should be in the top 10 instead of poundcake
