    Default favorite 10 songs from the Ozzy Era

    When I was first introduced to Black Sabbath, I only listened to some of their classic songs and they were good but not great. Recently after having revisisted Sabbath and having listened so far to their first 6 albums, I can honestly say Sabbath is fucking awesome

    I'm a newbie on this forum as I guess I'm a new "fan" of Sabbath but I was just interested to see what the more veteran fans had to say on the subject of Sabbath's best 10 songs of their early work.

    Here's my list:
    1. Snowblind
    2. Suppernaut
    3. War Pigs
    4. Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
    5. Solitude
    6. Into the Void
    7. N.I.B.
    8. Sweet Leaf
    9. Hole in the Sky
    10. Paranoid

    I'm usually good for a list, and as a "veteran" Sabbath fan (since 1980) I can say my tastes have evolved over the years, but my favourites have almost all been there through out.

    In alphabetical order :

    Air Dance
    Fairies Wear Boots
    Hole In The Sky
    Juniors Eyes
    NIB
    Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
    Spiral Architect
    Symptom Of The Universe
    War Pigs
    You Won't Change Me


    If this was stretched to a top 20 there would be an MOR track and several VOL 4 tracks in there, but those albums just don't get any in the top 10 (Wheels of Confusion is probably at 11).

    In no order:

    1. Black Sabbath (Ozzman Cometh version)
    2. War Pigs (both Ozmman Cometh and Paranoid versions)
    3. Into the Void
    4. Sleeping Village/Warning (I know these are two different songs, but the American release has them as one track, and they blend together so perfectly)
    5. Planet Caravan
    6. Shock Wave
    7. Air Dance
    8. Symptom of the Universe
    9. Solitude
    10. Iron Man

    Picking numbers 8-10 was pretty hard.

    Do you believe a word what the good book says?
    Or is it just a holy fairytale and God is Dead?
