Greatest Tesla Songs


The Top Ten

1 Love Song

Tesla showing they write classic ballads with guitar rock solo. Quality

This isn't just the best song from them but the most amazing song I have ever heard from them. The video is so awesome!

I forgot about this song until I saw it on iTunes, and immediately bought it! Introducing a whole new generation to good ole Rock and Role, as our sons do not like the new stuff on the radio, they want to listen to mom and dad's great music! Lol thanks Tesla for such a great song!

So glad I discovered this song

2 What You Give

The heartfelt lyrics and emotionally driven melody makes this an amazing song. My wife and I would leave each other notes with the lyrics to this song when we were dating. Every time I hear this song I think of her.

This song just makes me think about who I really am and what I want in life!

I haven't listen all their song yet but whatever I did, this is absolutely their best for me..that smooth, heart warming and catchy guitar strumming, lively vocal, deeply moving lyrics.. Everything is it from the first time I listened to!

Love this song!

Song and emotion is one team as great hits even though most of their songs kick ass!

Song rocks

This should be #1! R.I.P. Steve "Steamin" Clark

10 Caught in a Dream

The Contenders

11 Flight to Nowhere

One of the biggest hidden gems in the whole Tesla catalog. If you aren't a big fan, you won't even notice it tucked away on Great Radio Controversy. How it wasn't bigger, I have no idea.

An absolute cracker of an album track. All great albums have them. For GRC, this is it.

12 Rock Me to the Top

The ENERGY in this song

13 Mama's Fool

Whenever I hear these guys go from acoustic to electric in the beginning of this song I get goosebumps, so good

Yeah, the sound of that guitar is amazing... the groove is awesome

I agree with the comment below - love this song. I love all Tesla songs.

14 Call It What You Want

One of their best! Its definitely under rated

Awesome! I love this song!

Should be in the top 5

15 Little Suzi

Love this song. The 80's version of "Over the Hills And Far Away" - Led Zeppelin, which is about the greatest compliment you could give to a song. Should be at least in the top 10 at least.

Love the beginning acoustic

Should be in top ten, definitely!

Best song in my opinion from Tesla but all their songs have a different sound and it makes people wanna come back for more.. TLW

Freedom slaves is another gem from tesla!

Can't you see were just a slave!

Wicked tune!

17 Changes

Awesome song, reminds me of the style of Loverboy!

Best Tesla song

18 Edison's Medicine

This song definitely describes the battle between the great inventor and electrician vs edison

Edison's medicine is another rocking, kick ass tune, they sure have a lot of gems in their collection of hits

This is a rocking' track from start to finish, definitely my favourite from the band

Even the title is amazing, top 5 for sure
