This has probably been done before, but hey humour me!
What do you think Steve Vai's best ever song is (so far)?
I'm gonna go for Tender Surrender, although this changes on a daily basis. He has so many.

Impossible to pinpoint any song, really. But like, straight off the top of my mind, Touching Tongues. That's just a perfect song, isn't it? I mean, every single note is just like candy exploding in my ears.
And I mean that in a good way.

Sisters and Tender Surrender.....I like to mellow out
Best party/rockin' vai tune though has to be I'm The Hell Outta Here. That gets me so pumped. I think it also has to be one of the best rhythm riffs he's ever written since the DLR days. Simple and catchy, the ultimate thing a writer can achieve.

My favorite right now is "For the Love of God", but honorable mention goes out to "Juice" and "Answers". Peace.

I don't know what people see in Freak Show Excess. To me, it's one of his worst songs in recent years....but that's just me. I can't stand it, but most guys live it. Funny, eh?
Best song? The Animal.
End of discussion!

Man that's hard!! There are so many! My favorite now is "I'm Becomming", allthough I'm listening alot to Frangelica, Is It Over Yet, Gentle Ways and a few others from AH. Incantation, Freak Show Excess, Dying For Your Love are also great songs so it's very hard for me to say "Best Vai Song"! They all have a twist.

Tender Surrender, Windows to the Soul, or Whispering A Prayer.
