Greatest Ozzy Osbourne Songs

See if you think an Ozzy song is better than a Sabbath song!

The Top Ten

1 Crazy Train

The greatest riff and solo of any of his songs by far, but most of the credit for that goes to Randy Rhoads. RR for ever! RR and OO were one of the best music duos ever.

OZZY is amazing and this one of my favorite solos so far I've heard so way to go ozzy he is kick ass man!

But its only the best because I don't think you should count Black Sabbath songs... They werent just his! - LadyLioness

This one is the best. - Camaro6

2 Mr. Crowley

Best solo ever! Randy Rhoads bring a live to this song, RIP Randy Rhoads! - aizuhakimi

Come on, the solos man, the solos. This is a real masterpiece

Solo is one of the greatest, also love the ending solo
RIP Randy Rhoads

RIP Randy Rhoads

3 No More Tears

Should be in the top 5 - really good guitar solo by Zakk Wylde - petrucci75hammet

"Crazy Train" is a good song, but not as complete as "No More Tears". This is Ozzy's "Stairway to Heaven", his "Free Bird", his "Won't Get Fooled Again", get my point. "No More Tears" is not just Ozzy's best song, but one of the best rock songs ever.

This is of course one of the best. The guitar riffs are superb

Great vocals, great guitar work - a complete heavy rocker. Terrific.

4 Bark at the Moon

It's just such a great song! Ozzy isn't a satanist by the way, you need to get your facts right. - patrickfitzpatrick

The 2nd best solo behind Mr. crowley :)
Great riff from jake e lee.. loves the pre-solo riff

Excellent song and video!

Great txt song how did he come up with it

5 Mama, I'm Coming Home

Some of the greatest lyrics ever conceived, Mama, I'm Coming Home is one of the most under-rated songs ever written. It's rare that you fine meaning this profound in a song. It's quite the feat writing a song as deep as this one, and Ozzy pulls it off as if it's nothing. This in my opinion, is his bests song. Songs like Crazy Train, while still featuring profound lyrics and meaning are simply nothing compared to songs such as Mama, I'm Coming Home and Changes.

this song gives me goosebumps.

Really Nice song..! One thing I would like to say is I don't understand songs like iron man and paranoid being on 3-4.. Either don't put them on ozzy's list or if they're there it should be on top of the list.. There is no comparison even between iron man and crazy train

Awesome best song ever

6 Diary of a Madman

Clearly the best song lyrically and musically and sabbath songs don't count! Even if they did id still pick this

I remember playing Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas on the original Xbox with my dad's User Track Player when I was little, and this was the song I heard the most, along with Waiting for Darkness, I by Black Sabbath, and Invisible by Dio. These became my childhood songs, but this was the one I liked most. And Ozzy said himself that this was his most favorite personal work of his solo band, and who is there to disagree?

Ozzy and Randy's partnership were one of a kind. They brought the best out of each other and it showed unfortunately ended all too early. Their music will live forever.

This song is just magic

7 I Don't Wanna Stop

He did this for WWE Judgement day 2007 Theme Song

This really gets through to me and really gets me pumped because this is one of the best songs iv'e ever heard in my entire life and the best song for both lyrics and the instruments

a great song, from a great artist

Madden 08 anyone? - TheManWithaPlan

8 Shot In the Dark

The Sabbath songs should not be on here, and this should be way higher.
Awesome song! Its one of my absolute favorite ozzy songs ever, I love the sound of this song in general!

Just have loved this song since the first moment I downloaded it - a super track! Very catchy indeed, memorable, excellent musically, very 80s, clever, great guitar with good bass and backing drums - it's a song that has it all and features Ozzy at his absolute best!

Shot in the dark is an absolute classic and had ozzy's best lineup with castillo, lee, and soussan!

Great song. It should be #1

9 Hellraiser

This song and crazy train is the best, they are both great. I favor this song though. I just wish perry mason would be higher

One of the best rhythm and chorus. It's a unforgetable song for listeners. One of the best rock songs ever made. It makes you remember the. Old days.

Grand Theft Auto San Andreas anyone?

I prefer the Motörhead version.

10 Let Me Hear You Scream

My personal favorite. I think it should be much higher on the list but its less popular than most of his music and there for less people vote for it even though it has awesome guitar and awesome vocals that make you want to rock out hard core!

Telling you that ozzy will not fade
and he's a legend
and then he said "Who The F is Justin Bieber? "
now that's what I called True legend!

This song kicks ass plain and simple. It one of the best metal songs ever it epitomizes ozzy's craziness and raw talent

This is the best song ever totally bad ass!

The Contenders

11 Over the Mountain

Should definitely be in the top ten. One of my favorite songs by Ozzy. Should be in the top ten if not the top five. Has an epic drum intro and chugging riff. The solo starts at 2:29 and is probably one most memorable solos by Randy Rhoads and is a epic opener for his final album with Ozzy. This song raps up with a final solo similar to the first but with a more concluding finish.

30 years later this one still rips. Long live Randy Rhoads!

Totally agree should be way higher. Such a great song

There is no reason why hellraiser should be ahead of Over The Mountain - Joshgbpack12

12 Flying High Again

Flying high again was awesome because it was 3 songs in one with all the riff change and randy is good on this

GOT A CRAZY FEELING! and I don't understand, why no one voted this higher.

One of Ozzy's true classic songs, with some excellent shredding from the late Randy Rhoads! - petrucci75hammet

Great song

13 See You on the Other Side

This song should be number one in my opinion this is the song of my life best son ever launched it really enters your head

It a great song

Sadness and hope all wrapped up in a beautiful sound

Do doubt one of the best classics

14 Dreamer

Don't understand why this one isn't in the top ten. Just listen to it and realize this song is awesome

One of ozzys best song... Should be on top 10...

I was born in 1999 and "dreamer" is the first song I can remember listening to with my dad in his car on cassette. We would listen to it over and over again so it has a really special meaning to me...

Best ozzie song ever.

15 Revelation (Mother Earth)

I love Ozzy and have listened to most of his material and I've got to say this would have to be my favorite song by him. Randy's guitar work and Ozzy's dramatic vocals in this track are what make it so great. Also keep in mind that this song was on "Blizzard of Ozz" which was his first solo album, he was extremely depressed around the time he was fired from Sabbath, Which would make making an album even harder.

I just have to say, this is my favorite Ozzy song. It is highly underrated and relatively unknown. Perry Mason is my second and then Killer of Giants. - ethany

My favourite Ozzy song ever. It's such a powerful song in terms of the melody, lyrics and unbelievable guitar work of Randy Rhoads. A masterpiece!

Love this song. Why? Its a guitar driven piece thru and thru. Listen to Randys guitar work here its just amazing.
Its the perfect blend of rock and classical.

16 Road to Nowhere

Best song! Hands down. Zakk on guitar and off of one of Ozzy's best albums No More Tears.

An epic masterpiece and it's based on Ozzy's own life.

Hands down. His best song. Love the guitar. It makes me very sad.

It’s pretty gay

17 Mr. Tinkertrain

Mr. Tinkertrain is definitely one of Ozzy Osbourne's best hits! It's got kick ass guitar riffs and although it's technically about a pedophile, it's just a great song! Plus, it warns you to be careful in the real world because you never know what people are really like. This song definitely deserves to be in the top 10!

This is my second comment, but it's just because I love this song. It's got killer guitar riffs and it warns us to be careful in the real world. This should be in the top ten. It totally deserves more credit than this.

Such a great song, it's my favorite by Ozzy!

18 I Don't Know

Since this was their first track it should rated in the top 10. Still and will continue to rock forever.

One of the best opening tracks on any albums, as well as one of the best metal songs ever in my opinion

What a way to kick off the Blizzard Of Ozz album!

It's literally the best Ozzy song, how is it so low.
1) I Don't Know
2) Over The Mountain

19 Goodbye to Romance

Why the hell is this song this low?! This song belongs to the top ten list!
The words are beautiful. The third best song by Ozzy Osbourne in my opinion!

Definitely on my top ten list... Beautiful song, there ain't anything like this out there... Love the kind of person Ozzy is.

No need for long explanation: melodic tunes, good lyrics and of course Randy Rhoads' great guitar solo. - gabegyebnar

This song cured my cancer

20 Bloodbath in Paradise

Great riff awesome singing and just gives yea goose bumps.

Super bad ass riffs and vocal melodies

This one is based on the serial killer Charles Manson and his follwers, when they played their part in the Sharon Tate murders.

21 Suicide Solution

What are you people crazy? One of the most memorable and controversial songs in all of Metal history and it is not even close to top ten? Perhaps there are too many Sabbath songs here. I thought this was a Ozzy solo top 10 list not a Ozzy/Sabbath list. These sabbath songs don't belong here because they spoil the songs he did as a solo artist that deserve to be in the top ten. Also did any one listen to "Facing Hell", don't see that one listed?

Whoa, this should be higher or maybe it's just cause anything by Ozzy will rock! "Now you live inside the bottle, The reapers traveling at full throttle.." This hits heavy, man, and strangely there's a sense of poetic beauty to the entire song.

This top ten list is a butchered atrocity to ozzy's heritage. Mercy on your fool souls

100% perfect song

22 I Just Want You

Just one of the greatest sounding songs that Ozzy did. It is both uplifting and depressing. A love song, a song about life. A true inspiration. It has never gotten the credit it truly deserves. Very powerful.

A "after thoughtful" and powerful song, with full of feelings.

All Ozzy songs are great but this one is at another level.

23 Thunder Underground

Should be in the top 5. one of the best hard rock songs from ozzy

24 Nightmare
25 Perry Mason

Ridiculous subject for a metal song, but this really is one of Ozzy's greatest tunes. Overblown keyboard intro and riff, catchy verse and possibly the biggest chorus in the world... Ever. Fat production and some swift noodling from old Zakk. WE NEED PERRY MASON!

Sheesh, this song wasn't even on the list. Oh well, it's the best song he's done.

Listening to Perry right now -- full volume. It's what metal is meant to sound like.

I love this song and it deserves to be in top Ten.from the intro till the end,pure awesome - Toucan

26 The Ultimate Sin
27 Gets Me Through

Great song with a fabulous intro and lyrics. This masterpiece has a very decent rhythm and a message to humanity. It talks about every artist having an image for stage.

Good intro and great song so under rated. Should see it live on budokan.

28 Lightning Strikes
29 S.A.T.O.

What an underrated song! Give it a listen, and you will probably agree.

Shouldn't be this far back not well known but still a great song

An under rated Ozzy masterpiece!

30 You Can't Kill Rock and Roll

Gee what a surprise, Crazy Train #1. Listen just because a song is over-played doesn't necessarily make it good. Yeah I thought Crazy Train was awesome too when I was like 15, but now that I've grown as a true music listener not to motion an Ozzy fan for the past 25 years I can tell you there is a lot of amazing Ozzy songs but the best of them all is You Can't Kill Rock n' Roll, try listening to it I mean really listening.

I like almost all of Ozzy's music and Crazy Train is one of my favorites. It has everything, great riff, verse, and solo. It is overplayed which makes hardcore fans dislike it. I am a hardcore fan and I like this song. Personally, Diary of a Madman is my favorite - Edgelord

There's a lot of great Ozzy songs but none greater than this one, just listen to it and you will see.

This song is so underrated! Thank you Ozzy for decades of keeping rock-n-roll alive!

Top 10 for me!

31 Miracle Man

How is this so low?

Can't believe his best solo song is so low. - truckturner

Unreal...Ozzy’s best list, and the first “No Rest for the Wicked” song is #42...?

Such an overlooked album!

32 Latimer's Mercy
33 Breakin' All the Rules

This should be at least at top 6 along with crazy train, I don't wanna stop, fly high again, I don't know and hellraiser.

Best guitar (Bass) and percussion. Needs to be higher on the list

Awesome song should be top 10.
This list needs: Thunder underground, hellraiser, suicide solution ("ENJOY life"), See you on the other side(great song), I don't wanna change the world(And I don't want the world to change me) also war pigs!

34 Trap Door

This is just the best song of him. This song should be at least the top 10. He sounds really evil.

35 The Almighty Dollar

Greatest Ozzy Osbourne song hands down. Reflecting on how screwed up the world is all because of money. Great lyrics and riffs.

36 Born to Be Wild
37 Secret Loser

This song is the best post-Randy Rhoads song and is a great driving songs.

38 Close My Eyes Forever

I know it's Lita Ford also but a very good song! Especially Ozzy's vocals!

39 Back on Earth

This is my favorite Ozzy song. I know it might not be the most popular but I thought it would be much higher. It had a music video and was fairly popular in the late 90's.

40 Killer of Giants

It might be pushing it a bit bit I think this song
Deserves a top 10 spot

Rockin' rock song of rockin' proportions! - ethany

41 Desire

Awesome song by the Prince of Darkness. And it's off of one of his best albums. I love this song. Should be in the top 5!

Amazing Zakk riff, vocals, melody, and solo. Amazing song.

For the love of Rock, no way this isn't top 10.

39... You've gotta be actually kidding me.

42 Waiting for Darkness

Underrated song from the "Bark At The Moon" album

Should be in first 10!

43 Let It Die

Badass song! Needs to be higher on the list!

It should be in the top 10 awesome lyrics!

44 Dee

You totally feel the soul of te legendary randy rhoads

45 No Bone Movies
46 Life Won't Wait

Masterpiece from the artist, could be suitable to publish in a 12 inch maxi version, but with the mind not to "destroy the song"

Amazing song that makes a perfect couple along with "Time" (equally underrated) from the same album.

An exceptional track - massively underrated!

Beatiful metalsong from Ozzy with good rhythm and a clear and pure singing voice, witch bring it to a masterpiece soundtrack

47 Tattooed Dancer

Kicks ass

48 11 Silver
49 Ghost Behind My Eyes

Cause it is you

I LOVE THIS SONG. Enough said

50 Facing Hell

Come on I can't believe this song is so under rated its one of the best and meaning full songs of ozzy
