For musicians, each song has a very special place in their hearts. They’ve been with that song since it was words on a page or notes hummed in the air. As a result, their views of their own songs are a bit different from listeners. Loved ones have favorites of their own, and Eddie Van Halen’s wife is no different. Recently, Janie Van Halen took to Twitter to reveal her own favorite Van Halen song.

The reveal came in a very creative way. She posted a clip of her in a dance video. She and her dance partner Louie Martinez danced while audio from the song played in the background. The caption humorously read, “For those who asked – this is my favorite Van Halen song. Who knew you could swing dance to it,” ending with a laughing face.

Fittingly, fans gave a very eager response to this information and the subsequent video. One user excitedly wrote, “OMG this is the greatest thing on the internet today!!! This makes me so happy, thank you @JanieVanHalen !!!” A big smiling face emphasizes his emotions. Meanwhile, others took her mention of swing dancing as a challenge. “How about swing dance to Josephina?” one user wrote. Others, however, assured this would be child’s play. One post reads, “I can’t think of a Van Halen song you CAN’T swing dance to. Maybe ‘I’m The One.'” Yet another explained, “David Lee Roth said he always tested the songs for danceability.”
