Greatest Tesla Songs

The Top Ten
1 Love Song

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!

I've heard this song so many times on the radio, without knowing the name of it or even the band! This song brings back great memories.

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!

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.

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!

The ending riff where the chords are being slowly strummed and jeff is sort of whispering "what you give" literally saved my life. Tesla will always be the greatest ever.

3 Modern Day Cowboy

This song captures everything that tesla is as a band. The solo is very memorible. The hook is unmatched by any of thier other songs. This is the song you hear on the radio and say...hell yea Tesla kicks ass. Modern Day Cowboy IS Tesla

Modern day cowboy holds up to todays standards of what a kick ass get your ass in gear rock song is all about! Wow!

This is Teslas best song by far. If all there songs were half this good they'd be the headliner, not Def Leppard.

4 Signs

This was the first song I had ever heard by Tesla, and man, what a great tune. It never gets old, it's point hits home, and you can't NOT sing along!

My parents brought us kids up on all 70's and 80's rock band, hair and metal music!. Tesla is one of my favorite and this song is my #1!

Love since the early 90's and will never forget. Saw you open up Skynard in Chicago back in the dY!

5 Ez Come Ez Go

A hard driving tune, with a real message in the lyrics that flows from beginning to end.

6 Paradise

Love the methodical approach... Start slow, finish fast! Good rock ballad!

Should be right behind love song in the #2 slot.

This should be top 3! Great power ballad!

7 Song and Emotion

A masterpiece... from the masterful guitars, the HEAVY transition, and the great lyrics... there is so much in this song to listen to over and over for decade after decade.

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

8 Need Your Lovin'
9 Cumin' Atcha Live

Awesome hard rocker. Should be in Top 5 at least.

10 Call It What You Want

One of their best! Its definitely under rated

The Contenders
11 Caught in a Dream

Grest song songs, my vote is an underdog vote. Tesla has lot of great songs

12 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.

Darien Lake, NY, summer 1989, pouring rain, lightning flashing and this song being played live at an outdoor concert. It doesn't get much better.

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

13 Mama's Fool

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

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

14 Rock Me to the Top
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.

Should be in top ten, definitely!

16 Freedom Slaves

Another criminally underrated Tesla tune.

Freedom slaves is another gem from tesla!

17 Changes

How is this not in the Top 10 -- Seriously. This is their best song period. What the...

Awesome song, reminds me of the style of Loverboy!

18 Edison's Medicine

There are other Tesla songs as good, but I defy you to find one better!

Criminally underrated, should be at top 5.

Are you people deaf? This is a top 5 song

19 Hang Tough

This one must just not be popular because it's the best Tesla song and should at least be top three.

One of the most underrated songs from Tesla. Give it a listen, you won't regret it!

Took a shot to the chin... From the very first line, this is top notch.

20 Before My Eyes

Very underrated song! Nice to see it get some respect!

One of there best slow songs and that is saying a lot.

21 Heaven's Trail (No Way Out)

One of there best ass kicking songs! Listen to it and you will say the same!

My personal number 1. Slide guitar so awesome.

22 Alot to Lose

Aside from the grammatically incorrect a lot, versus A Lot, this is a great song from an underrated album.

I think it was the best of tesla song why not in the top 5?

23 Can't Stop
24 The Way It Is

Wonder why this great song didn't at least reach the top-10.
