2 Elysium

Epic song! The longest of Stratovarius... Perfect escalation of feelings, makes great images and I think it's completely underrated up to now

One of the best epics of all time, should be in top 5 - petrucci75hammet

Being a guy that is used to shorter songs I first doubted this song. And then I listed to it. Best. Decision. Ever.

Epic long and makes u feel like u travel through the song lyrics also awesome guitar solos and rhythms

The guitar at the same time with the strings at a crazy pace. this song is the best

10 The Kiss of Judas

Love this song

Ohh, THE KISS OF JUDAS, what can I say?
Yes, it's the opener of Visions, Stratovarius' best album.
But it's not just the best Stratovarius song, it's the best sounding song in power metal.
SO, Why is it so low?

What a song. Wow. Excellence at it's finest.

Best song!

The Contenders

Along with Black Diamond this one is Strato at their best!

It's a perfect example of the power metal genre it's disappointing to see this song so low on the list I mean it's the best song they have ever made and to see this song 23th come on this should be at least in a top 10 :v

Black Diamond is amazing... But this one tops them all

Perfect power metal anthem!

33 A Million Light years Away

Best song from Stratovarius. The feeling I get when I listen this is unexplainable. Musically flawless and incredible piece of art.

Can't believe there's only been over 100 votes on this list, the music industry is just plain messed up. Anyway, brilliant song love singing along to the chorus - wolphert

34 Dreamspace

This is a song that takes your breath away with it's dark atmosphere and shifting moods. Very powerful!

This song is just so awesome, eventhough it is so dark.

35 Learning to Fly

Best solo

36 Cold Winter Nights
37 Castles In the Air

I can't say what it is, but of all of their songs this is the one that always jumps out at me.

The best song of their new album "Nemesis".

Really love this song

38 Dreamweaver
39 Lord of the Wasteland
40 Infinity


Something about this song is just epic... It makes me want to listen to it again and again and afterwards I had to ask myself "where do I go from here? " Choosing a song to enjoy after that was very difficult :P

Probably my personal favorite. Pure nostalgia since I was around 10 years old and used to repeat the song over and over again

It's such an epic song that it always, and I mean always, gives you the hugest feels possible
