    What tracks would you have added to each of the Classic Van Halen 6 pack?

    All of the 6 pack are relatively short albums.

    What songs would you have added to each album to give them a longer running time?


    Here's a few suggestions to get started with...

    I would have put Light up the sky on Van Halen I

    Angel Eyes and Bullet head and Hang 'em High on Van Halen II

    The expanded Growth on WACF, with a cover of the Sex Pistol's Pretty Vacant, and a possible Jam session from Eddie and Alex to end the record.

    This is way more fun.

    Van Halen I - Let's get rockin' (kicks off side two, followed by Jamie's Cryin')

    Van Halen II - Bullethead (right after "Women in Love")

    WACF - Summertime Blues

    Diver - Beer drinkers & Hell raisers (right after "Dancing in the street")

    FW - She's the woman (somewhere on the album, with that FW tone)

    1984 - Blood & Fire (with the original brown sound)

    "Eyes of the Night" "Piece of Mind" "Down in Flames" "Lets Get Rockin'" really should have been on the early albums.

    Yup .
