Best Ronnie James Dio SongsIn Memory Of One Of The Greatest Legends In Metal Music 1942-2010. Here's The Top 10 Songs with Ronnie James Dio Singing Vocals.
The Top Ten
2- heaven and hell
3- holy diver
4- falling of the edge of the world
5- neon knites
6- don't talk to strangers
7- man on the silver mountain
8- rainbow in the dark
9- sign of the southern cross
10- die young
I completely agree with the top five, just not with the order, but I suppose its all just personal preference though.
Got to be honest though, his voice is probably my favourite out of any rock singer, and this song and the lyrics are the reason
A Metal-Masterpiece in every sense of the word. This song combines several elements found in nearly all metal tracks to date, and even in some non-metal songs. His voice is so powerful he can level mountains. Not only the best performance in Dio's career but perhaps one of the genres' best songs ever created.
Just try copying his sing and you'll know its one of the toughest song to sing
Just wow... not only great vocals but great lyrics.
the shift in the slow solo to the fast solo is the best part of the song... never get bored of it! also has wonderful meaning..
just awesome the perfect voice of Ronnie James Dio mixed on the sabbath's style of music. Awesome!
When the vocals come back after the solo and smacks you in the face- it's one of the best moments in metal.
1. Holy Diver - Dio
2. Stargazer - Rainbow
3. Rainbow In The Dark - Dio
4. Don't Talk To Strangers - Dio
5. Heaven And Hell - Black Sabbath (I like Dio, and I like Black Sabbath alot, but not as much together. Still pretty good though. )
The perfect song. Listened to this song hundreds of times and it never gets old.
lovely lovely riff and awesome solo - sharm7064
Beautiful song. Dio does it great. I love how it starts of slowly then it start to REALLY rock. His style is absolutely incredible. When the guitar solo comes, I imagine Dio riding a tiger. Crazy good song. - reddy4u2
Vocals, lyrics and the keyboard riff. Rainbow in the Dark is an epitome of a hard rock/heavy metal track with such obscure yet beautiful lyrics.
Rainbow in the dark is the BEST song ever it was a big hit for ronnie james dio by the way RIP Dio you will be in our hearts forever - rocknrollhorselover
I love this song its one of my top favorites of all time - rocknrollhorselover
A beautiful song that soon will be in my arm forever!
Awesome tune on an awesome lp!
The best, as so many are of Dio/early Rainbow songs were
Cutting edge, and as usual, Blackmore started that style of rock, and Ronnie was the perfect fit, and he put Ronnie on the "map" to be seen...
A stand out track.
Just listen to it and you'll understand completely why this is my choice.
Great track from rainbow rising awesome vocals by ronnie james dio
Ritchie and Ronnie are a perfect duo for metal. Nothing comes close, not even Hetfield and Hammett. - bighercules
No, no, Either this one or Rainbow in The Dark should be #1, MAYBE children of The sea, not some Rainbow song boi
After Heaven and Hell this is the next best song!
So Good, Can't stop Listening to this song!
Best dio song on any formation
Amazing song. But the first time I heard this song my big brother was playing it, and he passed away nearly fourteen years ago. That might weigh heavily on my opinion.
Its totally a kick ass song. love the vocals of ronnie I guess this is one of Black Sabbath's epic rock song
Great song on an epic album. Lady Evil should be here as well...
One of my favourite songs ever.
Best song I have ever heard of RJD!
Another that I am shocked it is not here. Great song to open up Heaven and Hell, Black Sabbath's second best album, behind Paranoid of course.
Dio at his absolute best with Sabbath. Awesome tempo and it really deserves to be up there in the top ten along with We Rock and Stand Up and Shout
This one is legendary. That's all I can say.
Appeared on the last dio album that went Gold in the states.
The vocals in this song were unbelievably beautiful. So high at the beginning, yet so powerful towards the end.
Dio at his best
Ronnie James Dio is the greatest rock singer that has ever lived on the planet earth since the beginning of time... Plain and simple... And for some one to be better then him your above god... When he passed I cryed badly... I have all his cd's and movie's of him... He is a legend... If life lasts another million years how will he ever be beaten...
Great performance on this fun track. From the Butterfly Ball and the Grasshoppers Feast concept album, and later on deep purple's live at the royal albert hall. Was well received in the Netherlands and Australia.
A stand out track.
Great track off of the Trying To Burn The Sun release. Produced by Roger Glover who also did the Judas Priest sin after sin release.
"I'm a fire, burning higher, trying to burn the sun." Great.
"fade away, fade away, vanish into smoke, fade away, fade away, break the crystal ball" a really heavy song by black Sabbath. It's so beautiful. Deserves to be at least the second best Dio song.
Iommi's beautiful acoustic intro followed by a bad-ass riff and Dio's amazing voice and fantastical lyrics at their best. The dichotomy between gentle and powerful both musically and vocally make this a very special song.
Wonderful melody, Ronnie sings so good.. love this song
The word 'magical' describes best this tune. - Metal_Treasure
I don't believe it is not in the top of the list... Perfect song...
This song was insanely fast for the 70s and it was/is one of the most influential metal songs. It was covered by many bands:
Heathen, Metallica, Candlemass, Jorn, Primal Fear, Adrenaline Mob, Liege Lord, Grave Digger, and several more. - Metal_Treasure
I LOVE this song, it's one of my favorite Ronnie James Dio songs, I listen to it almost all the time.
Rock on, Ronnie, We miss you :(
How the hell is this not on the list? Brilliant opener to Holy Diver!
One of heaviest Dio songs, worse than Stargazer, but still one of the best!
Song to be listened closely by all religious extremists
Song Comes in mind when I hear News about is and that
It is here at number 10! Are you mad? This is one of the sweetest songs of RJD.
Fast, anthemic, awesome.. The perfect metal song in my opinion done by the Man on the Silver Mountain
From the holy diver album
I think this is worth being mentioned. Although there was a bunch of others singing besides him, it was completely his initiative. The song is awesome! - sumit
Great song for a great cause
This song and title is just amazing. Listening to it from "On Stage" live album is just breathtaking and awesome. What a performer and performance
Wow. This is top ten!
Very touching song...Need to stay more?
I suggest the Scopions cover of this song... Very impressing
This song should be in top 5!
One of dio's best songs.
Also the riff maker, Sir tony iommi did a great job.
One of the best songs! It should be on the top five
I love this Song so much!
It's a typical Dio Song...
The Feelings in this Song are so awesome and it still Rocks!
R.I. P Ronnie James Dio,
We will never forget you
How is this not on here? This and Shame on the Night are my favorite songs by Dio.
How was this song not even included in the list? It's easily in the top twenty.
The most powerful singing by the voice of metal, in my opinion, the best dio song, followed by stargazer, rainbow eyes, don't talk to strangers, etc.
The first true heavy metal song
Last song he wrote before he passed away..
"good time music is coming back today." RJD
Very good song, must be on the top 10
One of my favorites.
