Greatest Black Sabbath Songs
The Contenders: Page 5
Should be in the top 10. One of Tony's greatest riffs and some of Dio's strongest singing. The version from Live at Hammersmith is one of Sabbath's best live recordings ever.V 2 Comments
The best power-ballad ever! Underrated song, but... I can't find the word to describe this song... The bass intro, so deep... The power of the song is increasing to the final orgasm...
Incredible guitar performance from Brian May
How come this song isn't on this list, this list is absolutly rediculous especially considering there's bearing anything off of Cross Purposes on the list which just so happens to be their greatest album.
Awesome Song. Glenn Hughes vocals are very powerful. The riff is heartbreaking. Nice use of keyboards at the outro.
This monumental song shows the unbelievable high quality of heavy metal.
Its different structures make you think that this song is played by an orchestra.
No other track ever led your feelings better to some kind of perfection than "The Shining".
Try out and you will see it's true!
I can only believe that the reason this song is so low on the list is because it's not one that is ever played on the radio and people have just not experienced the awesomeness yet. Get on board, folks! This song is amazing. Groovy, heavy bass line, winding guitar, driving drum beats, emotional lyrics, and heartfelt vocals. This song is the complete package.
This is the Sabbath song that I come back to more than any other - Ozzy's singing is truly emotional, the bass riff is awesome and there's a cracking guitar solo to boot. Perhaps the only Sabbath song where lead guitar plays second fiddle to the bass, but it really works.
I don' t know why this album didn't sell. All my buddies in 1979 loved it... Especially Junior's Eyes. I thought it was the equivalent of Zep's In thru theOut Door... A band maturing, but still edgy.
Most underrated song on 13. Best song on 13.
If Children of the grave would be sex, this ist the part before.
Nice song it should be here
Great song why is it so low
Best short song ever
I think it should be in the top 10 songs its definitely the best one in my opinion, all these ratings are just a matter of preference, It makes me wonder if there really is such a thing as good songs verse bad songs, like biting into a pear it may have a different taste too each and everyone alive
I wont lie. I am pretty heartbroken that this is so low. It is very unique/different from the rest but still an amazing song.
110th? What the hell just happened here?
This is one of Geezers greatest Bass riffs.
Ozzy's last great vocal performance
