    Which are the best/favorite back to back tracks?

    So, out of all the albums, which do you consider to be the best back to back tracks? (in track listing order)

    Im tempted to cheat a bit since Eruption-You Really Got Me always get played together so i'd vote for Running with the Devil + Eruption/YRGM but if we count Eruption as a seperate track then i'd vote for HAIL+Unchained

    HAIL and Unchained by far for me. Killer 1-2 punch. ATBL and I'm the One is great as well. And I'm digging Stay Frosty/Big River.

    I guess i'm thinking of them in terms of their original vinyl & tape formats.
    I don't think of HAIL & UNCHAINED as back to backs, 'cus you had to flip the album over.

    So, with that mindset, i will say:

    Fools/Romeo Delight

    (runner up)
    Hang 'em high/Cathedral (hang' has THE coolest ending ever, and i love the volume
    swells that open Cathedral...just a nice contrast).

    I like Fools/Romeo Delight.

    Or maybe ATBL/I'm the One

    Somebody get me a doctor/Bottom's up!

    That was the first big "one-two punch" for me, as a kid.
    Those two songs tore my head off, and made me think, "VH is the ONLY band for me."

    There are so many. Right now for me its Girl Gone Bad - House of Pain.

    I've been listening to 1984 a lot lately. I'd compare it to a fine wine...it has gotten better with age.
    Woke up in life to find I almost missed it

    1984....not so much.

    I hate the first two songs.
    Panama & HFT & JUMP, are played to death (were cool at the time, except Jump).
    Top Jimmy is okay, good solo.
    Drop dead legs & House of pain, just sound kinda messy & half-baked.
    Girl gone bad is brilliant.
    I'll Wait is a great song.

    I'd take DD over '84 any day of the week, but nothing compares to the first four.
