  • What songs did Ozzy write Lyrics to?

    I know he wrote Looking For Today said he was eating breakfast reading the paper and was inspired... AM I GOING INSANE (WAS THE TITLE TRACK TO A SOLO ALBUM NEVER COMPLETED OR RELEASED) Who Are You also I think... does anyone know others?

      The only ones I'm certain about (where Ozzy contributed a large portion of the lyrics, if not all) are:
      Who Are You?
      Psycho Man
      Selling My Soul
      Methademic

      Never heard about Looking For Today.
      I've read that Am I Going Insane (Radio) was supposedly for a Ozzy solo album, so it would make sense that he would have written it. However, he also didn't like the song on Sabotage whether it was the song itself or just it's inclusion on the album, I don't know.
      I don't think he wrote Junior's Eyes. Mainly he just didn't want to sing the version written when Dave Walker was in the band.

          Yes, it's about the death of his father. But that doesn't necessarily mean he wrote the song.

            I've read that Ozzy (also) wrote the lyrics for the songs Black Sabbath and Fairies Wear Boots.
