Top Ten Best Wishbone Ash Songs

The Top Ten

1 Throw Down the Sword

If heaven exists and I go there I want Andy on my left and Ted on my right playing the solos on this as I walk through the pearly gates.

Never get tired of hearing the twin guitar solo in this song.

That second between the end of the singing (... for an answer...) and the first note of the guitar solo (3:40-3:41), one of the most magical moments of the rock history. Tears - goose bumps

Almost 50 years on and it still makes me feel the same way xx

2 The King Will Come

Live Dates Version better than Argus, or?

Guitar work is phenomenal

Should be number 1

Great guitars

3 Phoenix

By far their best track. Truly awesome

Awesome song from my teen years!

Never surpassed. Their best.

It is a fire bird

4 Warrior

Great song and definitely one of my favorites.

5 Blowin' Free

Love it

6 Sometime World

This is a biggie. Everyone on here is great. Andy Powell's solo is awesome.

Amaaazing bass

7 Persephone

Amazing and beautiful song, which I've known by Polish Radio Trojka


8 Time Was

The first Wishbone Ash song I ever heard. The start of their best album obviously because all seven songs are in the top 10.

A long song, but worth every second.

9 Leaf and Stream

A great classic to be remembered for years to come.

10 No Easy Road

The Contenders

11 Errors of My Way

The best wishbone ash song

12 Sorrel

Counterpoint lead guitars with the bass line dancing behind them. Absolutely the best.

This is the stand out track on Wishbone four.

The best song

13 Lifeline
14 Rock N Roll Widow

Live Dates version is just flawless

my third favourite beside Phoenix and The King Will Come

15 Handy

The bass intro, the guitar solo, the drum solo, everything is perfect

My favourite Wishbone Ash song.

16 Stand and Deliver
17 Blowing Free
18 Cell of Fame

Nice song from a forgotten era along with people in motion.

19 Alone

Criminally shortened on the Pilgrimage album the six minute version is worth the price of the Distillation boxed set.

20 Everybody Needs a Friend
21 Lady Jay
22 Standing in the Rain

Great song and wonderful guitar work

23 Valediction
24 The Way of the World
25 Haunting Me
