Best Scorpions Songs from the 70s

I think the early Scorpions albums are a bit underrated, so I made this list for everyone who loves the albums from the 70s as much as I. Please vote or add your own favourites.

The Top Ten

1 We'll Burn the Sky

An amazing song from their 5th album 'Taken by force'. Starts as a ballad, but leads into a hard rocking, but still melodic part. It's a very complex song and the guitar work of Uli Roth is amazing, expecially in the live version. - DarkSideOfDragons

2 Holiday

One of the greatest Scorpions songs ever and from their 6th studio album 'Lovedrive'. The melody is so beautiful and the guitar solo at the end is superb. I also like the rocking part in the middle. One of the big Scorpions classics. - DarkSideOfDragons

3 In Trance

Another great Scorpions song and from their 3rd album 'In Trance'. And I think I'm not the only one who loves this song. - DarkSideOfDragons

4 Fly to the Rainbow

Progressive rock masterpiece from their 2nd album 'Fly to the rainbow' and 10 minutes long. Amazing guitar work by both Schenker and Roth and a stunning final. - DarkSideOfDragons

5 The Sails of Charon

A song written by Uli and also from 'Taken by force'. On this one he shows that he is a wizard on the guitar.. his best song in my opinion. - DarkSideOfDragons

6 Pictured Life

A rocker from their 4th album 'Virgin Killer' (one of my favourite Scorpions album). It's just a perfect rocker and the Scorpions should play it live more often. - DarkSideOfDragons

7 Lovedrive

One of the best rockers of the Scorpions and from their 6th album 'Lovedrive'. Nothing more to say, I think... - DarkSideOfDragons

8 He's a Woman, She's a Man

Their heavy metal anthem from the 5th album 'Taken by force'. The live version is even better, I think. Klaus Meine sounds great on this one (okay.. he sounds great on every song - DarkSideOfDragons
