Top 10 Greatest Songs from the Band Rainbow

The Top Ten
1 Stargazer

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.

Well, it's a good song. But I've always noticed it. Wasn't sure until I found another person thinks the same. It's that, this song's middle part's guitar solo and Led Zeppelin's Kashmir's ending keyboard solo sounds same.

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.

A song that combines all the qualities of a great song with a rate of 5 star for each. Just a perfect song. One of the very less perfect song in the world. Makes me go emotional, don't know why. Love it!

2 The Temple of the King

Dio was the best singer of Rainbow.
Dio is one of the best singers ever!

By far the best Rainbow song!

The very.. Very best song

This song should be 1st.

3 Man on the Silver Mountain

Can't help but always sing along to this one.

This is the best one in my opinion! Number 1!

Great.. They're smart musician...

Personal bias... but reminds me of times when talking to my dad was fine. Used to listen to rainbow in the car, and this was my fave as a kid. Brings flashbacks...

4 Catch the Rainbow

Wow this is just another great song from Rainbow.
One big mistake from Rainbow, DOWN TO EARTH album it just sucks.

Pure romance! Something to dream. Shows the variety of the band.

Just the most epic song in this world!
Dio stays the best forever.

Has always been my Rainbow's favorite song.

5 Gates of Babylon

My personal No. 1, makes me groove every time I listen to it, so powerful, so craftly-arranged, I love the lyrics especially the last lines.

Just love the melancholic, oriental feeling of this. An awesome track to dream yourself away to.

Easily the best song from Long Live. Amazing guitar and keyboard work on this track.

This song should be #1 for Blackmore's solo alone. Absolutely amazing.

6 A Light in the Black

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.

Seriously, Rainbow Eyes or any of the songs above for that matter, better than A Light in the Black? If you think so then you need your hearing tested. This song has no equal on Rising or any Rainbow album.

This needs to be number 2 right below Stargazer. What the hell is wrong with everyone here that it's only number 6?

This song is amazing and Blackmore was diabolic with his strat! Great music.

7 Rainbow Eyes

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.

The softest ballad you'll ever hear. If you hear a breeze, you'll miss it.

Haha, the song sample is wrong - it's not Rainbow Eyes, it's Stone Cold.

Just majestic to your ears.

8 Kill the King

Second best rainbow song. Solo is absolutely magical, each step getting faster and faster, more technical than the last.

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

Dio sang his ass off. The heart and soul of rainbow in my opinion. the greatest singer ever with the greatest band ever

This should be at least in the top 5.

9 Street of Dreams

As far as I'm concerned, after ronnie left rainbow, it ceased to be rainbow anymore, so anything that comes off any album released after 'long live rock 'n roll' should be on a separate list...

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.

Very romantic song. Impressive Dio's ability to keep the tones at the end of the lines. One of my favourites.

Those days gone but rainbow still rocking in my heart.

10 Long Live Rock 'N Roll

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!

I LOVE this song so much (it's basically my favorite song of all time! ) I love everything about this song, speically the singing by my man, Ronnie!

R.I.P Ronnie, I miss you everyday

Very underrated rock anthem. Most catchiest in my opinion among all the hard rock and metal anthems.

One of the best rock songs ever in my personal top 30! Jed -I.

The Contenders
11 Starstruck

Such a groovy funky song. It just makes you want to move and shake. One of the best off 'Rising'

12 Since You Been Gone

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!

Definitely the best song by rainbow. Great lyrics, great vocals, great guitar, great drums, great backing vocals, great everything.

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

Should be number 1. Reading all the comments confirms this. This song is far better than number 7.

13 L.A. Connection

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

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

My favorite performance by Dio. So amazing and powerful.

The last rainbow with dio single.

14 Lady of the Lake

Rock expression of love

15 Stone Cold

I can't explain it but this is my second favorite Rainbow song. The guitar solo is breif but powerful, and the song is sung in a way that strikes me. I suppose you have to have lost a relationship to know.

The begining of the song is so powerful. I play it every time I roll my funnycar out of the trailer at the drag strip! "POWER METAL"

We can't all make the "cool" choice. This was a hit for a reason.

One of my all time favorite songs!

16 Lost in Hollywood
17 Run with the Wolf

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

18 Can't Let You Go

This is gotta be in the top 10.
Come on guys, probably their best after stargazer!

Not even in the Top 10? What this is definitely top 3. Come on people!

Every time I listen to this song, I miss dio like hell.

That must be their best

19 All Night Long

Opening guitar chords and riff was hard rock in heaven fold me from the very first time I ever heard it, and the chorus is pumping. This song from Down To Earth was a hit single, and for me far better than Since You Been Gone. Classic!

Top 10 on a great album. If you aren't in the mood for warlocks and whatever else Dio sings about this is a great song (and album).

This is the perfect song... everything is perfect. You can't listen to this song and feel bad about anything

Why does the riff sound so similar to Burn by Deep Purple?

20 Tarot Woman

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?!

This is the best Rainbow song, as far as I'm concerned, and possibly the greatest opening track of all-time!

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!

21 Jealous Lover

Top five hands down!

22 Death Alley Driver

The guitar solo is awesome. Blackmore was so inspired and diabolic. Great song!

Great metal song with one of the best solos by R. Blackmore.

Guitar solo is crazy

23 Spotlight Kid

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.

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!

24 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.

25 I Surrender

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!
