Top Ten Best Joe Satriani Songs

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Echo

I think I've listened to this tune pretty much every day since I first heard it in 1990. The superbly simple and repetitive bass riff, the shuffling background guitar, the haunting harmonics, the moody guitar intro, and the excellent saxophone-sounding lead. It's not a shred-fest, it's emotion embodied into five or so minutes of superb music. This is my number one Satch piece, and one of my favourite tunes of all time.

Very badly underrated

22 The Extremist

The extremist at number 17 are you kidding me... This should be up there

Surprised NOT to see this in the top 10

WHAT a RIFF man!
It will blow your hair away!... I'm now a permanent fan of Joe Satriani... Thanks to this song!

Great song

As the riff starts, you'll know a great song is gonna kick in. This is one of the greatest riffs I've heard from him. The solo jams through the song and you'll not be able to stop yourselves from jamming with it. My favorite from him. Joe is really a legendary guitarist.

24 Crowd Chant
25 A Train of Angels

This song is absolutely amazing. Starting with the acoustic guitar in the beginning with a slower tempo then a couple minutes in, shredding the electric guitar. By far my personal favorite song by Satch.

My personal favorite... The Spanish acoustic coupled with breathtaking electric guitar gives you a high that even weed cannot... Laugh out loud

The one of the two songs that he composed when thinkin' about Asik Veysel, the flamenco parts and th metal keep is really cool...

This is my seconed favorite Satch song. It is is extremely well played but flying in a blue dream is just a little better

A masterpiece, best song to wake up to all days!

29 Made of Tears

I have to agree that the live version is the best, first time I heard it live I could not stop replaying it, love the intro and I think its cool as hell watching him play part of the song with his teeth!

The best song ever made by Joe Satriani

Live is a much better version just blows me away

Outstanding, such a glider song!

Unique and beautiful. Can't believe Satch could still write music this amazing so long into his career. Most artists put out their best work in their first few albums, but Satriani is so consistent and in my opinion Musterion slightly edges anything he's put out in the past, balancing weirdness with elegance and beauty the way Joe only knows. I think as far as modern instrumentalists are concerned, Satriani has no rivals, just fans and students. Musterion should make that obvious if you are a slow learner.

Absoulute amazing song. My favourite solo of Joe Satriani.

What a race! Absolutely amazing song. Speechless.
I can't hold naming my other favorites (4): Dream song; Engines of creation; It�'s so good; and obviously If I could fly.
I should stop here because the list is to long!

34 Cool #9

This really should be in top ten. If I could have a personal theme song, id want this to be it because the main melody and solo are so cool, hence the title. Great song that I never get bored of and is a blast to play on guitar... Attempt I should say.

This is one of the best songs I have heard in a long time. The music lingers on your mind for a very long time. You can never forget its music.
