Best Songs On Ozzy Osbourne's Diary of a Madman

Diary of a Madman is a legendary album by the legendary rock star Ozzy Osbourne. There are only eight songs on it, but it deserves a list. So, here we go. Also, disclaimer; I have listened to Ozzy my entire life so there's no reason to say I don't know what I'm talking about. I may be alone here, I may not. Just putting it out there that I am experienced and that I love every Ozzy album and only a few songs of his I don't like. The rest I cherish greatly.

The Top Ten

1 Diary of a Madman

The title track doesn't necessarily pull the weight expected for a title track, but it's still great in all ways and should be played live a lot more often. - dannooo28

Every song on this album is awesome! Ozzy's best!

2 Over the Mountain

The beastly introduction to Diary has sweet drumming, Randy's chugging riff, and the tune that gets stuck in your head. The first half of Diary is simply phenomenal. - dannooo28

1) Over The Mountain
2) Flying High Again
3) S.A.T.O.
4) Diary Of A Madman
5) You Can't Kill Rock And Roll
6) Believer
7) Little Dolls
8) Tonight

3 Flying High Again

About Ozzy's re-emergence as a solo artist after being fired from Black Sabbath, this song kills it and should be among the best metal songs of all time. - dannooo28

4 You Can't Kill Rock and Roll

A juicy mix of acoustic verses and hard rocking choruses, You Can't Kill Rock and Roll pretty much describes Diary's ominous and amazing nature. - dannooo28

5 Believer

Another killer bassline from Bob. Another sick riff from Randy. And more heavy drumming from Lee. This is a cool song but it feels a little drab and that's why it's lower on the list. - dannooo28

6 S.A.T.O.

S.A.T.O. stands for Sharon Arden Thelma Osbourne, Sharon being his manager at the time and Thelma being his wife, I believe this was written for the most important women in his life at that moment. Epic song. - dannooo28

Originally to be called Strange Voyage - SoldierOfFortune

7 Tonight

Bob Daisley's bassline is the backbone of this song and the ballad sounds somewhat filler but is a necessary listen and don't get me started on how much I love the chorus. - dannooo28

8 Little Dolls

I like the drumming in the beginning but the rest is a little odd to me and though I like it, it just doesn't make me feel as happy as when I usually do while listening to Ozzy. - dannooo28
