One of my all-time favorite albums, and one of the best albums ever made of all time! The first track I heard from 5150 was "Good Enough" in Mel Brooks' comedy classic, "Spaceballs". But I wasn't aware that there was a Van Halen song (nor did I know) in it 'til 1999. The first track from 5150 I became really familiar with was "Dreams", which I first heard at the end of "Power Rangers The Movie". Last year marked the 20th Anniversary of this timeless album, and I celebrated whatever way I could! I have this album on CD, cassette and LP vinyl, and last year to show my loyalty, I bought the retail 7" singles of "Why Can't This Be Love", "Dreams", "Love Walks In" and "Best of Both Worlds". This album is in desperate need of a Mega Deluxe Edition! Disc 1 can be the whole album with unreleased bonus tracks, Disc 2 could be a bunch of demos, outtakes and live performances, and there can also be a DVD with a new documentary featuring interviews with VH, Mick Jones, Donn Landee, and some legendary rockers like Pete Townshend, Steve Winwood, Neal Schon and a couple of others, plus the music videos that were made for the album, retro live performances, interviews and other stuff. These are probably my Top 5 favorite tracks from 5150:

1.Dreams
2.Love Walks In
3.Good Enough
4.Get Up
5.Why Can't This Be Love

And now, here is the classic music video for "Dreams" featuring The Navy's "Blue Angels" fighter jets!:
