Greatest Songs From The Band Rainbow

Zezerex

The Top TenXW

1Stargazer

The ultimate epic rock track. Blackmore-Dio-Powell-Bain-Carey on top of their game. A masterpiece!

It is just epic. Stairway to heaven is supposed to be great... The lyrics are so complex, but so Brilliant. And his voice, oh my gosh. It is a real shame that Dio left, nothing after he left is as good.

What a song how does dio sing like that

What a brilliant songs!

3Catch the Rainbow

For me this is the best rainbow song, you know, the flow that has in it and the melody, it's just a classic kinda ballad song

Pure romance! Something to dream. Shows the variety of the band.

4Man On the Silver Mountain

great work from blackmore. intro looks like "smoke on the water" but it's still good

Come down with fire lift my spirit hire love it

Personal bias... but reminds me of times when talking to my dad was fine. Used to listen to rainbow in the car, and this was my fave as a kid. Brings flashbacks...

5Gates of Babylon

My personal No. 1, makes me groove every time I listen to it, so powerful, so craftly-arranged, I love the lyrics especially the last lines.

Just love the melancholic, oriental feeling of this. An awesome track to dream yourself away to.

This song should be #1 for Blackmore's solo alone. Absolutely amazing.

This melody from Ritchie is so beautiful and unique that is almost transcendental. It's like a music message from the center of the Universe. And Dio earned the nickname Mr. Golden Voice for a reason. - Metal_Treasure

7A Light In the Black

So this song is right after Stargazer on Rising so maybe that's why it's so underrated nut If Stargazer is number 1 then this should certainly be number 2

This song is amazing and Blackmore was diabolic with his strat! Great music.

There can never be a better band than rainbow for that era period

this is one of my favorites songs... Rock In Peace DIO! m/

Those days gone but rainbow still rocking in my heart.

Yes one of my great favorite song. They are forever.

9Kill the King

Dio sang his ass off. The heart and soul of rainbow in my opinion. the greatest singer ever with the greatest band ever

What? One of the best song in the history of rock should be 1st at least 2nd this solo rules and the last of the song is a masterpiece

Second best rainbow song. Solo is absolutely magical, each step getting faster and faster, more technical than the last.

This should be at least in the top 5.

The Contenders

11Long Live Rock 'n Roll

Very underrated rock anthem. Most catchiest in my opinion among all the hard rock and metal anthems.

I LOVE this song so much (it's basically my favorite song of all time! ) I love everything about this song, speically the singing by my man, Ronnie!

R.I.P Ronnie, I miss you everyday

The Rock hym it must be the best of all time the top 1. Just the best.

12Starstruck

Such a groovy funky song. It just makes you want to move and shake. One of the best off 'Rising' - Paragon_Pariah37

13Stone Cold

The begining of the song is so powerfull. I play it every time I roll my funnycar out of the trailer at the drag strip! "POWER METAL"

One of my all time favorite songs!

I fell in and out of love to this song

Stone cold is my favorite

16All Night Long

Fantastic song! Definitely top 10!

All Night Long at 28? Definitely deserves better!

Top 10 on a great album. If you aren't in the mood for warlocks and whatever else Dio sings about this is a great song (and album).

Great riff, simple but effective song.

18Spotlight Kid

This songs guitar riff was copied bye iron maiden in the song aces high but they got all the praise this song is awesome!

I agree the riff is a killer.
I'm not at all sure about 'Aces High' because I don't hear many similar things but here is an example of a very brutal rip off:
Dream Theater - Panic Attack, 2005 (intro and many times throughout the entire song).
Haha, the best part of this DT song is Ritchie's riff. - Metal_Treasure

Dudes whatever aces high panic attack
Alcatrazz's "Jet to Jet" (1983) that's what a TOTAL RIP OFF IS
(by the way it's sung by Graham Bonnet)

19I Surrender

Great song. This song need to be at least no. 10.
It's a beautiful song and people should vote for it because this song must to be in the top ten. This song is a pure classic from a pure band, and Ritchie Blackmore rules!
