2The Piper Never Dies - Edguy

It's not my favorite song but I put it at #1 because it's an epic vocal performance. Some really tough stuff to sing. - Metal_Treasure

3Tears of a Mandrake - Edguy
4Nailed to the Wheel - Edguy

My fave song from him - vox in the intro and the chorus are just what I need to hear. And his sustain of about 13 seconds is awesome. - Metal_Treasure

5Flight Of Torek - Aina

Can you believe, Tobi sings jazz in the middle of a metal song and sounds amazing! (3:25-4:25).
By the way I know nothing about this band (Aina). I mean Tobi sang for many lesser known bands and people are not aware of his full vocal potential. - Metal_Treasure

6New Age Messiah - Edguy

Pleasure start to finish - Metal_Treasure

7Mysteria - Edguy

The intro sream is one of the best I've ever heard - long, powerful and beautiful. - Metal_Treasure

8The Scarecrow - Avantasia

A remarkable duet with Jorn Lande. - Metal_Treasure

9Defenders of the Crown - EdguyV1 Comment
10Vain Glory Opera - Edguy

A song with additional vocals from Hansi K├╝rsch (Blind Guardian). Tobi and Hansi singing together - can't get any better! - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11Golden Dawn - Edguy

Sustain: 14-15 seconds - Metal_Treasure

12The Eternal Wayfarer - Edguy
13Save Me - Edguy

Thanks for adding this, wolphert.
Tobias Sammet just doesn't have bad vocal performances and it was difficult to select only 10 songs. - Metal_Treasure

14Lay All Your Love On Me - Avantasia

This is an ABBA cover - it takes guts to do a song originally by the blonde songbird but Tobi sounds really really good. I like the cover in general - it's one of the best metal covers of pop songs - Metal_Treasure

15No More Foolin - Edguy
