      I don't much care for either, but I like the guitar parts for Psycho Man so that got my vote. That chorus is just unbearable though...

        Ditto..When i hear the chorus ... My mind starts fitting in the Village PPL..."Macho men" chorus in slow tempo...

        Also Ozzy singing that low in the verse ...doesnt cut it for me...

        Maybe Scary Dreams should also be up there...

            I think both songs are pretty good musically when stacked up against the rest of the Sabbath catalogue and suffer from shitty lyrical concepts. Had Geezer done the lyrics, methinks PM and SMS would be semi-classics! However, I find it ludicrous that a drum machine was used instead of Bill Ward, that's just ridiculous!! So I voted Psycho Man.

              I love both songs. I am always astounded by the hate of these two songs on this site. The riff in Psycho Man is absolutely amazing and the outro is to die for. I love that tune and I always love when Ozzy sings low. I think the Selling My Soul is very reminiscent of Iron Man in the Verses and I just love the chorus of that song. I thin Ozzy's lyrics in this one are great.

              I went with Psycho Man just because I think it is a tad stronger and all Bill is on the track.

                Psycho, a more complex composition, I think it's a very good song and indication of whay might have or could be. Ozzy even makes what is a pretty pedestrian song, Selling My Soul, sound good, the guy has a nack for melody doesn't he?

                  Selling My Soul easily...Psycho Man sounds more like an Ozzy solo song than a Sabbath song actually...

                    Every word, 100%. Well written.

                      Psycho Man! I love the eerieness of the guitar, bass, and vocals of the verses in that song. And the bridge riff is good too.

                        I picked Psycho Man. SMS sounds too generic for my tastes.
                        "The lover of life's not a sinner
                        The ending is just a beginner
                        The closer you get to the meaning
                        The sooner you know that you're dreaming..."

                          Psycho man for me. The song has all 4 original members.

                              I always enjoyed both tracks. I went with Psycho Man for the build up, bridge and solo. Ozzy's vocal melody on Selling My Soul is a favorite of mine too though.
