"Somebody Get Me Doctor" but there were a few that could have took the top spot (DOA, Light Up The Sky). This is actually my favorite Van Halen album of them all. Sentimentality has a lot to do with it. I remember having an 8 track of this one in the late 80's (my Uncle had given it to me) and even though I had it on cassette, I played the 8 track more. My parents had one of those all in one giant entertainment centers in the living room and I played the shit out of this one there. Along with Back in Black and 2112.

I am surprised at all the votes "Doctor" is getting, I never expected that. Not that it's a bad song at all I just didn't expect it. I had a hard time choosing between "Women In Love...", "D.O.A." and "Outta Love Again" and finally went with "Women In Love..." cuz that was the first VH song I learned on guitar over 20 years ago. Can't play it now to save my live though. Thanks guys for voting!

Same here with regards to Doctor. I like it but never found it necessarily a standout track. But the same thing happened with Atomic Punk from the debut.

Almost went with the wonderfully crafted and rather different Women in Love, but had to show love for Dance the Night Away. That song simply sweats everything Los Angeles. In fact, I had it full blast driving down there this weekend before the Metal Church concert. It was a perfect pairing. And those wind chime-style tappings that Ed does before the last chorus is so beautiful.

I can understand the love for Doctor. It's a wild ride with a punchy riff. In fact, I believe it used to be my favorite at one point.

This is such a wonderful album through and through.

I always thought this was their first silly song....carefree...
and Van Halen could get silly - laugh during songs...like 'Unchained'
also those great vocal harmonies - that 'Feel Your Love' had...
I'm singing, I'm dancing, most every night....
come on, on , on, on , on, on baby, bottoms up.
They were drinkers too - lol
