Top Ten Best King Diamond Songs

I've just been introduced to an amazing group called King Diamond. If you've never heard of him... think Alice Cooper with satanic lyrics and heavier material.

The Top Ten

1 Abigail

This is a true classic by the King! Welcome Home is also really good and of course Cremation is one of the best instrumentals ever

2 Welcome Home

The all time greatest and coolest diamond song ever because I just can't get enough of GRAndma!

The best Song with the best Vocals

Great song here! Andy Laroque and King Diamond are unique! There ain't none as them

The best Song with the best Vocals, the best Solos and the best Mikkey Dee!

3 Give Me Your Soul
4 The Family Ghost

My Favorites:
1. Cremation
2. Abigail
3. Welcome Home
4. The Family Ghost
5. Arrival
Runner Up: Give Me Your Soul
I believe that King Diamond is superior to Mercyful Fate, despite the fact that Mercyful Fate is, for the most part, more liked than King Diamond's solo career. Cremation was already my favorite before the 1 minute mark when I first heard it...

It's almost Halloween and I am going to get up and start playing this. 6:24 AM
Every night to me, is Haaloweeen!
