See, the list tends to change.. so just 5 is a near impossible question! LOL...

In My Dreams With You... Ooooh, the whole thing is just gorgeous. But I am particularly taken with the part... (the bridge? I think.?. Music terminology is not my strong point! LOL...)
"Baby don't wake me
Let me take you on an endless journey
We touch
And the softest kiss explodes with lust
It's real...
You can't deny the heat you feel
And if I die before I wake baby that's all right"

D@mn! That just destroys me every time! Melts me down and floats at the same time. How can you not love that combination.?. :wink: :mrgreen:

Asian Sky... Powerful! An energy that gets me moving when I hear it. And I don't just hear it, I feel it, too. Good stuff, there. Really good stuff. 8)

Love Secrets... Same reasons I stated before. ...Patterns in the Chaos, Cosmic Beauty, a multi-layered piece of awesome that I just Love!

Gentle Ways... Oh, sooooo lovely. Inspires the poet in me when I listen.

Down Deep Into The Pain... An odd choice.?. Perhaps. But for me, it was very helpful. And it still is, from time to time. So it always has a special place in my life.

And the ones I already posted... :wink: And everything else! :mrgreen:

* Frank --- The Outro is just one of the best example of how creative vai's right hand is..

* Sisters --- volume control at its best ????

* Fire Garden Suite --- A whole session of orgasm for me !! LOL..

* K'm-Pee-Du-Wee --- Beauty...just a Beauty...

And of course,my all time fav vai tunes :

* The Riddle <--- the craziest vai tunes..i heard he blew up so many amps recording this song..and the reverse guitar part..INSANE !!
I could listen to The Riddle 20 times and it would sound different everytime...

I need to submit this,before i write a book about other vai tunes..
