After going back and forth thinking about this for awhile, I realized it's best not to overthink it. I'm going to vote for Heaven and Hell. It's always been a special song for me.

Both are basically awesome 10/10 songs for me, so whatever differences are going to be small. And actually I have some other sentimental favourite tracks by Rainbow that I'd rank ahead of Stargazer. But Heaven and Hell is my favourite Sabbath song of all time.

Man, this was tough. Quite possibly if you were to ask me on another day then I might give a different answer, but I'm going to go for Stargazer.

I love Stargazer, but Heaven and Hell is HEAVEN AND HELL. A song quintessential in shaping what metal means to me, as well as articulating Dio's philosophy of every human possessing within them the capacity for good or evil. You've gotta bleed for the dancer, man.

And this portion of the song:

"They say that life's a carousel
Spinning fast, you've got to ride it well
The world is full of Kings and Queens
Who blind your eyes and steal your dreams
It's Heaven and Hell, oh well
And they'll tell you black is really white
The moon is just the sun at night
And when you walk in golden halls
You get to keep the gold that falls"

That is some freakin' poetry right there.

Stargazer narrowly beat Heaven and Hell by a single vote 6-5. Thanks for taking part!

I didn't think this was a continuous format. But why not if there is interest.

I guess we need a well-known band with a large back catalog and no obvious winner. Saxon?

I have an idea for one, which I don't mind running. I'll need to put the lists of songs together, which hopefully I can do this week.

Go for it. You can also simply ask for nominations. Or have a larger bracket.

I agree with the suggestion of Saxon. Not saying we have to do all of these, but I would suggest Maiden, Accept, Helloween, and Metal Church.

I wouldn't know enough about Metal Church or Accept to take part. I have one and two CDs by each band, respectively.
