The Top Ten
1 I Like to Rock

Great song. Great guitar and drums. I love the homage to The Beatles and The Rolling Stones at the end with the Day Tripper and Satisfaction riffs. April Wine knows how to rock.

The "Day Tripper" and "Satisfaction" riffs at the end were obviously an intentional homage to two of the biggest rock bands of all time. Ingenious.

Love the Beatles' guitar riff toward the end of the song.

2 Roller

This song is very tight and features the best musicianship of any April Wine song, particularly the lead guitar. Great lyrics, great recording, great song.

The first April Wine song I remember hearing on the radio. Maybe my favorite.

3 Tonight Is a Wonderful Time to Fall In Love

Best April Wine song of all time. I saw them five times in 18 months back in the '70s, and I'm going to see them again tonight, Sept. 17, 2016, in Calgary, AB. I'm a little older, but so are they, so we'll all be better behaved! Haha!

4 Sign of the Gypsy Queen

Great song, strong lead guitar, and perfect lyrics.

5 Just Between You and Me

The song that had me thinking of my wife when we were in eighth grade.

A classic. This and "I Wouldn't Want to Lose Your Love" are great soft rock.

Every other song by this band pales in comparison to this one. No doubt this is the best.

6 You Could've Been a Lady

Roller and this song are the best. Why isn't it on here? Anyway, it doesn't matter. Great song.

7 Say Hello
8 Enough is Enough
9 Future Tense
10 Rock Myself to Sleep
The Contenders
11 Shotdown
12 Oowatanite

The intro is great, and this is such a rockin' song!

13 Weeping Widow

Listen to this song live and then tell me where it belongs on this list!

This used to be my favorite when it first came out.

14 You Won't Dance with Me

A classic rock ballad. Just as good today as the first time I listened in 1977. Myles Goodwyn at his romantic best.

I've always liked this song since I first heard it as a teen.

15 Like a Lover, Like a Song
16 I Wouldn't Want to Lose Your Love

Myles Goodwyn recently retired, and it's sad because of all he and April Wine have meant to my family! This song is wonderful!

One of the best "sing-along" songs that April Wine ever recorded.

17 All Over Town

A great non-hit and a fine example of why they can't be judged by radio songs alone. My favorite band! "Roller" is amazing as well, but they're an album band. "Harder...Faster," "Nature of the Beast," "First Glance," "Electric Jewels," and "Stand Back" are all worth listening to. Each album is different from the others. "Attitude" is underrated too.

18 Bad Side of the Moon

Easily one of the greatest songs of all time, or at least one of the catchiest!

This was originally Elton John's, just so you know, people!

19 Anything You Want, You Got It
20 Rock N' Roll Is a Vicious Game

Hard to believe this song doesn't have more votes.

21 If You See Kay
22 Doin' It Right
23 Cum Hear the Band

Awesome tune off Stand Back. Best Canadian band ever.

24 Coming Right Down on Top of Me

This is a song that everyone should be able to relate to. Meaningful and powerful writing!

25 Wings of Love

A hidden jewel, in my opinion. Another complex song that is so amazing to listen to at any volume. Myles scored a 10 on this one.
