Best Dio Songs


The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Long Live Rock 'N' Roll
22Jesus, Mary and the Holy Ghost

This is from the Black Sabbath album The Dio Years. This is a great song. It's somewhat dark like Black Sabbath and it's got the killer voice of Ronnie James Dio. But overall, it's just a great song.R.I.P. Ronnie James Dio. We will miss you.

24King of Rock and Roll
25Night People
26As Long As Its Not About Love

The whole 'Magica' album is super underrated! Dio returned to form on this album and this is certainly a stand out song

30Caught In the Middle

I've always thought this was his best song. I got tired of Holy Diver and Rainbow in the dark buy never caught in the middle.

32Straight Through the Heart

I can't believe it's not in the top 5. In my opinion It is one of the best Ronnie James Dio songs

Most memorable melody and far too underrated. Should be higher.

33The Man Who Would Be King

This is definitely not my fave but come on! It's an epic masterpiece! Deserves to at least be at about no. 10


Good song. It should be in first 10.

The title is true!

35Dream On

Arguably the best cover ever made. It also has elite shredder Yngwie Malmsteen doing his work beautifully. They do this Aerosmith song in such a brilliant way that it tops the original

36I Speed at Night
37I Could Have Been a Dreamer
38Shame On the Night

One of my favorite songs on one of the best heavy metal albums of all time. Should be much higher. - DarkenedBrutality

39Strange Highways

Not a fan of the whole album however the doom of this song is so good! It has a dirty slow pace which just works so well for it

Come on, this has such a doomed-to-death feel to it, such a powerful song, the tempo, vocals, everything. Astounding song.

40Faces In the Window

Come on, guys, listen up this diamond of power metal! Especially the bass line. And Goldy's guitar. And Dio's vocal, of course.
