Greatest Songs From The Band RainbowZezerex
The Top Ten
The ultimate epic rock track. Blackmore-Dio-Powell-Bain-Carey on top of their game. A masterpiece!
This song is just so epic and RJD vocals are just out of this world best I heard from him.
This song is so very good not just because of Dio and Blackmore's solo, but especially because of Powell's Drum intro and his drum over all. so this song should be dedicated to him first. not Dio or Blackmore because we all know that both always the front ones in the band.
It is just epic. Stairway to heaven is supposed to be great... The lyrics are so complex, but so Brilliant. And his voice, oh my gosh. It is a real shame that Dio left, nothing after he left is as good.39 Comments
C'mon man this songs got to be on the list... I mean its an incredible song
This song is nc, w/ their song of heavy metal/hard rock
This song makes me feel like I'm in a fairy tale
Dio was the best singer of Rainbow.
Dio is one of the best singers ever!
Simply a great piece of art..the first time I heard it, got fkn stunned..my favorite Rainbow song, along with Stargazer..but this, in my opinion, is a little bit more spectacular
The guitar solo, second to none.
great song jeje one of my personal top ten
A stand out track from Long Live Rock and Roll.10 Comments
It made me what I am today a millionaire thank you Richie and the guys p
great work from blackmore. intro looks like "smoke on the water" but it's still good
Can’t help but always sing along to this one. - Userguy44
Come down with fire lift my spirit hire love it7 Comments
amazing song... it just takes you away
undisputed - bulutsuzluk
Pure romance! Something to dream. Shows the variety of the band.
Great solo of Blackmore8 Comments
Nest track on the best Rainbow album. Cozy Powell’s drum performance is relentless!
So this song is right after Stargazer on Rising so maybe that's why it's so underrated nut If Stargazer is number 1 then this should certainly be number 2
This song is amazing and Blackmore was diabolic with his strat! Great music.
Stargazer gets all the plaudits but A Light in the Black is the best song on Rising and by Rainbow by far. This is the track everyone wants to hear should Ritchie do any other shows with Rainbow in 2017. We can but dream.6 Comments
This is the best song I've ever heard in my life
Long live Dio, RIP
This melody from Ritchie is so beautiful and unique that is almost transcendental. It's like a music message from the center of the Universe. And Dio earned the nickname Mr. Golden Voice for a reason. - Metal_Treasure
Haha, the song sample is wrong - it's not Rainbow Eyes, it's Stone Cold. - Metal_Treasure
Just majestic to your ears.3 Comments
Dio sang his ass off. The heart and soul of rainbow in my opinion. the greatest singer ever with the greatest band ever
What? One of the best song in the history of rock should be 1st at least 2nd this solo rules and the last of the song is a masterpiece
Ahh I could never go that fast
Second best rainbow song. Solo is absolutely magical, each step getting faster and faster, more technical than the last.1 Comment
Love this one. Especially singing by dio and the great riffs that are in there. Also love starstruck and the 1977 munich edition of man on a silver mountain. Great rock band with all top of their league musicians!
Very underrated rock anthem. Most catchiest in my opinion among all the hard rock and metal anthems.
It's an anthem! You just want to scream the chorus out
One of the best rock songs ever in my personal top 30! Jed -I.3 Comments
Such a groovy funky song. It just makes you want to move and shake. One of the best off 'Rising' - Paragon_Pariah37
Excellent song I love it
By far their best song
The begining of the song is so powerfull. I play it every time I roll my funnycar out of the trailer at the drag strip! "POWER METAL"
One of my all time favorite songs!7 Comments
Why the hell is this at number 50? The amazing keyboard intro to one of the best albums of all time, followed by a catchy riff and awesome lyrics and one hell of an underrated guitar solo. SURELY in the top 10?!
Epic intro, epic song. Of the same album as Stargazer,
Which is the best album by far.
What the hell is this epic song AT LAST? Come on guys!
No 17? Should be top 5. A stonker!1 Comment
So slow but so powerful. Their best song with stargazer and kill the king.
The last rainbow with dio single.
It sounds like Ronnie James solo stuff it has a great guitar riff some of reminds me of Vivian Campbell days.
Why does the riff sound so similar to Burn by Deep Purple? - Userguy44
All Night Long at 28? Definitely deserves better!
Fantastic song! Definitely top 10!7 Comments
I love this song - makes me feel so good
Incredible song and the list itself is really good. This is the first list of top ten that is almost perfect. I would probably just change the orders a bit. - metalmaiden
Those days gone but rainbow still rocking in my heart.
One of the Best songs ever by this band.9 Comments
Very underrated song like all the songs on llrnr
Rock expression of love
The best Rainbow song by a street mile
The best rainbow song ever
Top five hands down!
Great song, top 10 for sure
The guitar solo is awesome. Blackmore was so inspired and diabolic. Great song!
Guitar solo is crazy
Great metal song with one of the best solos by R. Blackmore. - Metal_Treasure
Can't believe it's the 33rd. it is the best. yes of course not dio on the vocals but it's still sounds real wild. in a posetive way. and both the guitar and keyboard solo are hellla crazy. oh yeah!
This songs guitar riff was copied bye iron maiden in the song aces high but they got all the praise this song is awesome!
The solo is neoclassical at its best! - RalphSaad
I agree the riff is a killer.
I'm not at all sure about 'Aces High' because I don't hear many similar things but here is an example of a very brutal rip off:
Dream Theater - Panic Attack, 2005 (intro and many times throughout the entire song).
Haha, the best part of this DT song is Ritchie's riff. - Metal_Treasure
Dudes whatever aces high panic attack
Alcatrazz's "Jet to Jet" (1983) that's what a TOTAL RIP OFF IS
(by the way it's sung by Graham Bonnet)
This is the first symphonic power metal song - no symphonic orchestra but symphonic vibe from start to finish. Amazing epic song. - Metal_Treasure
Simply the best song of rainbow this will be the numeber 1
Stargazer -best,then babylone,then eyes of the world-one of greatest song ever written in rock
Definitely the best song by rainbow. Great lyrics, great vocals, great guitar, great drums, great backing vocals, great everything.
Great song, one of the 6 best by Rainbow in my opinion, especially good chorus and catchy guitar riff and keyboards. Definitely the best song not by Dio era Rainbow. I love it, makes me sing along every time I'm listening!
Come on! This song should be number 1 not number 9 great singing guitar drums bass really good tune the drums and guitar before the main singing is amazing
Needs to be number 1 so good it's there best song by miles should not be way done at 10 great guitar and durms16 Comments
Insanely good song. You feel dio’s and blackmores passion on the matter. Maybe the greatest song they made.
Love the epic sound and the general feel of the 70's that this song brings.
The live version is great. The studio version is good too. It's only been an hour...
I love this song. It should be in the top 20
This is a fantastic and highly underrated song. I believe it should have more airplay and certainly be higher on this list. I think u should listen to it again and move it higher up the list. Ok?
Great song should be top 10
Not even in the Top 10? What this is definitely top 3. Come on people!
That must be their best
GREAT SONG WITH THIS ROCK BAND
Every time I listen to this song, I miss dio like hell.2 Comments
I have no idea why or how this song is so low down, down, down, down! The smooth groove and brilliance of this song are criminally underrated - gravy
A melodic metal song that sounds pretty epic (1982). - Metal_Treasure
Is this true? Stargazer one and this 44?
One reason. If Deep Purple did not refuse to record this, Blackmore would never have gone into the studio with Dio to do so.
This one song, started it all.
The bast maby a god on this earth
Great song. This song need to be at least no. 10.
It's a beautiful song and people should vote for it because this song must to be in the top ten. This song is a pure classic from a pure band, and Ritchie Blackmore rules!
Never mind 10th how about 5th
This is my no. 12 Comments
This song is pure power metal before Heloween! - Metal_Treasure
Great power ballad - heavy and melodic at the same time. The riff itself is a metal riff. Doogie White - great vocals (very underrated singer). - Metal_Treasure
One of my favorites ;) Top 5 easily - Fakol
Amazing - Beethoven went metal! - Metal_Treasure
Just listen to this song on the "On stage" album and you'll be pleased, if not surprised! With that lyrics it's undoubtedly Rainbow's top-3!
One of the top 5 at least!
It may be Mellow, but a song doesn't have to be crazy, fast, with yells & screams to be good, hell my Neighbors can do that, and THEY're not on here. Heavy metal is great at loud, fast pounding music, but they are also masters at the other end as well - time to appreciate it. Everything needs balance.
WHAT THE HELL IS THIS DOING HERE?!?! I BET no one's really listened to this. Without a doubt one of the most underrated song of not only rainbow but of all time. This song takes me away to a completely different world. Amazing song and even more amazing that it's so underrated. I guarantee when you listen to this song you'll agree with me.
Magical - takes you to another world. - Metal_Treasure
One of the most beautiful pieces I've ever heard. - Metal_Treasure
Very underrated slow-burning bluesy number with great vocals and Blackmore as masterful as ever
