    Jamie's Crying is a album track off the first VH album from memory a song that I haven't heard for years.

    Fat Bottomed Girl's is a Queen song that I also haven't heard for a long'ish time either but it was a hit single in it's own right from from memory.

    Out of the two I'll go for Fat Bottomed Girl's.

    Fat Bottomed Girls, but I prefer the version that is on the Greatest Hits from 1981

    The reason being, is that I knew that version well before the original album version. To this day, i still much prefer it over the album version.

    Both bands were eclectic and could it off with panache. However, VH were so coool too. Huge love to May, Mercury et al. BUT VH in their prime (‘78 - ‘85) were untouchable. Jamie’s Cryin’ isn’t in my top five VH songs but it has lots of the ingredients that made VH such a classic band: Dave’s witty vocals which had that bittersweet Motownesque (apparently) contrast of ‘up’ music and unhappy lyrical narrative; Ed’s guitar (natch), Mike Anthony’s Beach Boys-style harmonies, and the tight Mike’n Al rhythm section thrusting the song forward. Virtuosity, great songwriting, spunky attitude and the coolest image - that was Van Halen in their prime.
