Best Savatage Songs


The Top Ten

1 Morphine Child

One of the greatest songs ever made.

Sleep beneath my dreams, safe within my hands, every tear betrays.

2 Chance Chance
3 Hall of the Mountain King Hall of the Mountain King

Incredible music odyssey!

This should be at least top 5 - Metal_Treasure

4 Christmas Eve (Sarajevo 12/24)
5 Gutter Ballet

Despite that ripoff-y riff I like this song a lot and it should be at number 1

Great riff, great solos, great chorus. Great band, and great song!

One of the riffs in this song sounds like some crap ripoff of Iron Maiden's "Hallowed Be Thy Name". How about we put this lower on the list.

I'm listening to this song right now. It's amazing.

6 Believe

Raw, beautiful and life changeing.

Best ever Savatage song!

7 Handful of Rain
8 The Unholy
9 Hounds
10 Sirens

The Contenders

11 When the Crowds Are Gone

Close your eyes and listen.
#My funeral song!

First time I ever heard this, I listened to it like 10 times in a row. Still blows me away

This is definitely their best song. It encaptures so much emotion; especially the second half. Jon Oliva sounds so fantastic here - the blend between the clean vocals and the gritty vocals. - Phyralis

12 Dead Winter Dead
13 Scream Murder
14 Edge of Thorns

Love this song, and that solo... R.I.P Criss

15 Power of the Night
16 Commissar
17 Ghost In the Ruins

I added this song years ago, and it still needs to be higher!

Can't believe this song wasn't on here yet. Definite highlight from their best album, with a fantastic vocal performance from Jon and exquisite guitar work by Criss.

This song is bad ass

18 Not What You See
19 The Hourglass
20 One Child
21 Summer's Rain

One of the best

22 Jesus Saves

Maybe should be higher than #29 - Metal_Treasure

23 Strange Wings

Really anything from the album Hall of the Mountain King. One of the best albums from the eighties.

24 Streets
25 All that I Bleed
26 Sleep
27 If I Go Away
28 Of Rage and War


29 The Dungeons Are Calling

This should be higher. On their very first EP they were already forging their unique sound signature, thanks, in large part, to the Oliva brothers' talents. An absolute classic.

30 Surrender
31 Anymore
32 Castles Burning

Very good vocal line.

33 Alone You Breathe
34 The Wake of Magellan
35 Legions

Perfect combination or power and melody, amazing solo by Criss. Their best song, followed by Strange Wings and Hall of the Mountain King.

I like this song, too. Maybe top 10-15, or even top 10. - Metal_Treasure

36 I Am

Should be in Top 5

37 Thorazine Shuffle
38 Somewhere in Time
39 Welcome
40 Prelude to Madness
41 Follow Me
42 Sarajevo
43 Mozart and Madness
44 Silk and Steel
45 24 Hrs. Ago
46 Taunting Cobras
47 Paragons of Innocence
48 Washed Out
49 Doesn't Matter Anyway
50 Watching You Fall
