Top 10 Rainbow (Joe Lynn Turner Era) Songs


The Top Ten

1 Death Alley Driver

A very fast song - I would say speed metal with an amazing solo from Ritchie Blackmore. - Metal_Treasure

2 Can't Let You Go

Brilliant intro, riff and chorus (Joe wailing that "I-i-i-i-i-i" is awesome). - Metal_Treasure

3 I Surrender

Such an explosive intro! - Metal_Treasure

4 Stranded

I absolutely love this song - the riff and chorus are very powerful. - Metal_Treasure

5 Midtown Tunnel Vision
6 Spotlight Kid

This song has a killer riff but it sounds too odd when you first hear it and you may not pay attention to it. This riff was copied, i.e. ripped off, by 7 metal bands - I know about 7 but can't say if there are more. Obviously there's something about this riff because the other most copied riff in metal is Raining Blood by Slayer.
The solo also sounds unusual but I like it. - Metal_Treasure

7 Eyes of Fire

Pretty epic feel here. - Metal_Treasure

8 Power
9 Desperate Heart
10 Difficult to Cure

This was the first neo-classical instrumental and it's a cover of Beethoven's Ode to Joy. Beethoven's Ode to Joy is the official anthem of the European Union and the Council of Europe, both of which refer to it as the European Anthem. - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 Tearin' Out My Heart
12 Jealous Lover
13 Snowman

Snowman, Anybody There, Maybe Next Time, and Weiss Heim are beautiful and magical instrumentals. Highly recommended. - Metal_Treasure

14 Miss Mistreated
15 Maybe Next Time
16 Anybody There
17 Fool for the Night
18 Weiss Heim
