"Van Hagar songs that you want to hear David Lee Roth sing"
On this new/old Van Halen tour, are there any songs from the Van Hagar years that you (a) want to hear them perform and (b) would be a good fit for DLR's voice & personality?
Here are two that I'd like to see them try:
1. Finish What Ya Started "C'mon Baby! Ow. ... Just walk away if I fall shy at all..." This always seemed like a good fit for DLR to me.
2. Why Can't This Be Love "Whoa, here it comes, that funny feeling again..." This might be a stretch, but it's one of the more fun Van Hagar hits. I like when they used to sing "Ed's got what it takes" sometimes.

Van Hagar had more in common musically with one-armed drummer Def Leppard (in the sense that they were a pretty cheesy LOUD pop rawk band) than Van Halen with Roth which was just always classic So-Cal ROCK.
But I would like to hear VH play schitt like "Shy Boy","Elephant Gun","Big Trouble"
Eat 'Em And Smile was more enjoyable than every Van Hagar album combined.

The *two*-armed drummer Def Leppard did some really good stuff and, yes, "On throught the night" in particular; songs like "Rock brigade" and "wasted" seriously kick ass in a "boys night out"/beer-drinking way...
