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)

22 Do You Close Your Eyes
23 Vielleicht Das Nachste Mal (Maybe Next Time)

One of the most beautiful pieces I've ever heard. - Metal_Treasure

24 Shed (Subtle)
25 Lady of the Lake

Rock expression of love

26 Sixteenth Century Greensleeves

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...

27 Weiss Heim
28 Can't Happen Here

Great song should be top 10

29 Eyes of the World

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

30 Run with the Wolf

I love this song. It should be in the top 20

31 Snowman

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.

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.

Magical - takes you to another world. - Metal_Treasure

32 Tite Squeeze
33 Black Masquerade
34 Miss Mistreated

The bast maby a god on this earth

35 Tearin' Out My Heart
36 Hall of the Mountain King

Hall of the mountain king rocks, dude have you heard the guitar and the keyboard together, I reckon the drummer almost had a heart attack he was playing so fast

What the hell this has 0.5% percent of the vote that means this should be up at 20th at least. This song totally rocks man it's the fastest rainbow song by far!

Awesome song from stranger in us all and is one of the fastest.

Great metal song from the last Rainbow album (1995). - Metal_Treasure

37 Bad Girl
38 Difficult to Cure

Amazing - Beethoven went metal! - Metal_Treasure

39 Ariel

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

40 L.A. Connection

So slow but so powerful. Their best song with stargazer and kill the king.

It sounds like Ronnie James solo stuff it has a great guitar riff some of reminds me of Vivian Campbell days.

The last rainbow with dio single.
