Best Yngwie J. Malmsteen Songsrock2metal A natural shredder from Sweden. What are his best songs?
The Top Ten
this is a masterpiece of shredding, Yngwie is a master! - rock2metal
Beautiful... Absolutely beautiful... Such feeling and emotion and a perfect display of skill, technique and speed to compliment it. Such a splendid piece of music put together by Yngwie J. Malmsteen. A Neo-Classical masterpiece.
12 years old can play "far beyond the sun" but this masterpiece has amazingly complex alt picking downscales, and crazy sweeps here and there. Not only is this work of art hard to play its also so melodic. I'm sure Yngwie Malmsteen put lots of time into this composition and made his best.
What an underrated song. - DynastiNobleV 7 Comments
Black star is a beautiful song but far beyond the sun is just insane... Here's nothing else like it... Yngwie J Malmsteen is a brilliant shredder easily one of the best in the world right now... I'd also like to see I am a viking higher on the list
Black Star is a beautiful instrumental, I Am A Viking is beast, and Rising Force is a cool song, but Far Beyond The Sun is a masterpiece. #1 to me personally. Best solos. Such a crazy song. And one of the best instrumentals ever. Great guitarist Yngwie is.
CRAZY! crazy! CRAZY! crazy! CRAZY! crazy!
This is one hell of guitarrist.
Don't have so much fame as Metallica or Megadeth or Slash (who is better than Yngwie) but is one guy with a future on his HANDS and FINGERS! - joaocarvalho

This is the song that Blackmore would have been proud of -- sensational soloing in a great tune. The whole of this album is great, but this song kicks it off in amazing style
All Yngwie's qualities in one driving song - and none of his self-indulgence. Love this track - and album.
No mention of making love. I rate that as one of his best songs
This song has Yngwie at his Blackmore-esque best. Great tune, fantastic solo, not to forget soaring vocals by Joe Lynn Turner. Plenty of other great tracks on the album too.V 4 Comments
I am a viking is his greatest song. I have been a fan since 1984. GB
molto arpeggiosa 2nd!? I can think of more than 10 songs from YJM better than that one, like this one
Best overall song. Great solos with a super awesome riff to bang your head to.
The one that has more meaning for meV 1 Comment
It's Trilogy Suite Opus 5, it's the best there is to offer. While it's mostly a live track with the breaks in the song for Yngwie to absorb the glory, the solid chunks of it are the most iconic of all his intrumentals, and truly describes his style.
Gorgeous marriage of power and feeling. Up there with the Rising Force instrumentals.V 1 Comment
not better than the original Aerosmith version, but Yngwie and Dio can make good covers - rock2metal
Aerosmith original is an all time favorite of mine but I honestly think this cover version is better - better vox and guitars. - Metal_Treasure
Have you ever felt multiple emotions during a song?
Skill and Soul
Adiagno, such an amazing track; Yngwie relies on right here. Acoustic part is just INCREDIBLE!
One of the best and most beautiful ballads in the world. - Metal_TreasureV 1 Comment
Catchy chorus, great riffs, and the first section of the solo is one of the best melodies I have ever listened to.
Amazing.. amazing melodies.. I love this song the most
More interesting than most of his other instrumentals despite it's disastrous production... perhaps there are more than 10 other songs that are better than this one but I don't see them here...
this song isn't from this world, the guitar and bass shred! - rock2metal
Even when I play Counter Strike I remember this song because I always playing counter Strike along with listening this song when I was a child..
Most emotional song, just beautiful
The best guitar solo ever
Most underrated yngwie's instrumental ever! Yngwie at his finest.
Very beautiful and melodic song... Yngwie at his best.
I think this is the best and Trilogy suite Opus 5 would be second
Best of the Best. Accustic and Distortion awesomely mixed. Heart and Soul playing together. God and Malmsteen, Malmsteen as God.V 2 Comments
Come on, guys. This is obviously his best solo, and has some of the most kickass vocals I have ever heard. - bigherculesV 2 Comments
Yes, this is a Rainbow cover (Dio and Ritchie). Also check out the original - it's one of the top 3 Rainbow songs. - Metal_Treasure
That's Indian Intro I think. :D Nice Song by the way. Loved it.
Not Indian, Ritchie Blackmore used the so called Arabic scale. - Metal_Treasure
This song isn't from Yngwie Mamsteen, it's a cover he did on his album Inspiraion.V 2 Comments
"Into Valhalla" is way better its truly the work of a god.
This ones pretty good too though
Why did I have to add this!?!?! This is my favorite! Yngwie is a very talented man, and deserves much more recognition. I'm about to go see him in concert right now, and I can't wait! God Bless you, and may Yngwie soon be recognized as he deserves.
THE BEST HAIR SONG OF ALL TIME! ! ! ! ! !
I CANNOT STRESS THIS MORE! ! !
