In Reply To:Top 20 Dio Songs by John Frank
Ok, here's my list... only in chronological order, not a countdown list. One caveat... my list is heavily tilted towards the first 2 albums. Sure, that's not surprising in general, but it kinda is for me. For example, if I created a similar list for, say, Iron Maiden or Metallica... well, first off I probably wouldn't even be able to do it, but even if I did, those lists would contain a blasphemously large percentage of newer material right up there with the old stuff, heh. That said, I got into Dio in the mid 90s, and listened extensively to all the material released up to that point, then from 1996 forward, I got every album upon release, and again listened extensively. So I have a good history of listening to all of them many times, with no pesky newer albums to worry about whether I've listened to them enough yet. Given that, I can legitimately say there's at least 1 song from each album that deserves a spot in the top 20.
