Best April Wine Songs

One of the few bands that doesn't already have a list, let's determine the best songs by April Wine.

The Top Ten

1 Tonight Is a Wonderful Time to Fall In Love

My favorite AW song...a lot of great memories

Best April Wine of all time. Saw them 5 times in 18months back in the 70's, going to see them again tonight Sept 17 2016 in Calgary, AB. I'm a little older, but then so are they, so we'll all be better behaved! haha!

The best song of April Wine

Going' on forever...

2 Roller

This song is very tight and features the best musicianship of ANY April Wine song, particularly the lead guitar. Great lyrics, great recording, great song.


3 I Like to Rock

Can totally hear the "daytripper" riff in there, but really cool song. -

The Day Tripper and Satisfaction riffs at the end were obviously an intentional homage to two of the biggest "Rock " bands of all time. Ingenius

Love the Beatles guitar riff toward the end of the song.

The title says it all.The wine rocks and they like it

4 Just Between You and Me

Every other song by this band sucks compared to this one, no doubt, this one is the best

The song that had me thinking of my wife when we were in the eighth grade.

Greatest song from them hands down plus I was born to this so it has to be #1

Great pop rock song.

Great song, strong lead guitar and perfect lyrics.

Best song best story behind the song

In the 80's I watched all the great bands in the local bar's streetheart/april wine/pump's
headpins in winnipeg. the recording of live after dark streetheart at the diamond club
winnipeg the best show ever!

6 You Could've Been a Lady

Roller and this song are the best. Why isn't it on here? Anyway, it doesn't matter. Great song fro

You could put Future Tense on list

7 Say Hello

Number 1 says this American boy

Best A W song

8 Like a Lover, Like a Song
9 Oowatanite

The intro is great and this is such a rocking' song!

10 Enough is Enough

The Contenders

Hidden Jewel in my opinion. Another complex song that is so amazing to listen to at any volume. Myles got a 10 on this one. - rzink

15 Shotdown

Extremely catchy, great edge and pace

16 You Won't Dance with Me

Always liked the song since I first heard it as a teen.

Wonderful Slow dance song - Curti2594

Classic Rock Ballad, Just as good today as the 1st time I listened in 1977. Myles Goodwyn at his romantic best.

17 Bad Side of the Moon

Easily one of the greatest songs of all time, or at least one of the catchiest!

This was originally Elton John's just so you know people!

18 I Wouldn't Want to Lose Your Love

One of the best "sing along" songs that April Wine ever recorded

Myles Goodwyn just Recently Retired and it's sad because of all He & April Wine has meant to my Family! This song is also wonderful! - Curti2594

19 Cum Hear the Band

Awesome tune off Stand Back, best Canadian band ever.

Very unique

Great song!

20 All Over Town

A great non hit and a fine example why they can't be judged for radio songs alone. My favorite band! Roller is amazing as well but they"re an album band. Harder faster, Nature Of The Beast, First Glance, Electric Jewels and Stand Back. Start with those ones. Each album is different from the other. Attitude is underrated too.

21 Anything You Want, You Got It
22 If You See Kay
23 Rock N' Roll Is a Vicious Game

Best song buy them for sure

Hard to believe this song doesn't have more votes...

All time favourite song

24 Doin' It Right
25 Coming Right Down on Top of Me

This is a song that everyone should be able to relate to. Meaningful and powerful writing!

Amazing. So heart felt.

Everyone can relate

26 I’m On Fire for You, Baby

The most underrated Rock Ballad of all times.

I have a love/hate relationship with this song based solely on its composition.

The first two verses are executed perfectly with a vocal performance that captures the innocence of a young love complete with the exuberance of anticipation.

From a composition standpoint, there is where the instrumental break should come in followed by a proper third verse.

It doesn't.

Instead we are treated bits and pieces of a third verse, a strong instrumental, and endless refrains of a whiny (albeit lazy) chorus until it fades.

So much promise but for me, it's a guilty pleasure regardless.

27 Drop Your Guns
28 Hot On the Wheels of Love
29 Silver Dollar

Better than bone jovie

30 Fast Train

Awesome guitar riffs throughout

31 Before the Dawn

They should do more like this one its great

32 This Could Be the Right One

First April Wine song I heard and loved. Brings back great memories

33 Crash and Burn
34 If I Was a Stranger

Great tune from post breakup era

35 Just Like That

This was my favorite song when it first came out and still is today

Still one of my favorite songs of all time

How could this not be in top 10

36 Electric Jewels

Just to show that they can write a complex song too

37 Tonite

Always loved Myles voice on this track

38 If You Believe in Me
39 Tellin' Me Lies
