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 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 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 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 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 Pictured Life 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

6 Lovedrive Lovedrive

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

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

8 The Sails of Charon 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

9 Evening Wind Evening Wind
10 Speedy's Coming Speedy's Coming

The first hard rocking song by the Scorpions from 'Fly to the rainbow'. - DarkSideOfDragons

The Contenders

11 Loving You Sunday Morning Loving You Sunday Morning
12 Catch Your Train Catch Your Train

A song from 'Virgin killer' and full of energy. It was also played on the latest Scorpions tour. - DarkSideOfDragons
