21 This is Your Life - Dio
22 Gypsy - Dio

From the holy diver album

23 Wonderworld - Elf

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.

24 Catch the Rainbow - Rainbow

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

25 Neon Knights - Black Sabbath

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.

26 The Sign of the Southern Cross - Black Sabbath

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.

27 Stars - Hear 'n Aid

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

28 Dixie Lee Junction - Elf
29 Long Live Rock 'N' Roll - Rainbow
30 Starstruck - Rainbow
31 We Rock - Dio

Fast, anthemic, awesome.. The perfect metal song in my opinion done by the Man on the Silver Mountain

32 I - Black Sabbath

How was this song not even included in the list? It's easily in the top twenty.

33 My Eyes - Dio
34 The Mob Rules - Black Sabbath
35 The Temple of the King - Rainbow

Wow. This is top ten!

Very touching song...Need to stay more?

I suggest the Scopions cover of this song... Very impressing

36 Follow the Tears - Heaven & Hell
37 All the Fools Sailed Away - Dio

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.

38 Die Young - Black Sabbath

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

39 Caught in the Middle - Dio
40 Kill the King - Rainbow

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
