Okay, recently there was a favorite Judas Priest songs thread on here and it got me thinking about Scorpions. To me they've always been that "other" band of the time period. While Priest and Maiden are much and rightfully loved by the metal community, their German brothers also delivered some pretty nice tunes. Also, quite like Priest and Maiden, their darkest musical period is without a doubt the 90s. But in the 70s and 80s they really rocked. Not to mention they had one of the better 2000s catalogues for a 70s band. Then again, they didn't release a whole lot these past 12 years! Maybe I'm biased though. They've always been a favorite of mine. So, what are your favorite Scorpions songs?

In no particular order:

1. Animal Magnetism
2. He's A Woman, She's A Man
3. New Generation
4. Hour 1
5. The Cross
6. We'll Burn the Sky
7. Speedy's Coming
8. Make it Real
9. The Zoo
10. Black Out
11. Born to Touch Your Feelings
12. Holiday
13. Humanity
14. Pictured Life
15. Dark Lady
16. Catch Your Train
17. Alien Nation
18. Deep and Dark
19. The Game of Life
20. But the Best for You
21. Believe in Love
22. Wind of Change
23. Through My Eyes
24. We Were Born to Fly
25. Virgin Killer
26. No One Like You
27. Steamrock Fever
28. Loving You Sunday Morning
29. Don't Stop at the Top
30. Another Piece of Meat
31. When the Smoke is Going Down
32. Still Loving You
33. Rock You Like A Hurricane
34. Love Em' Or Leave Em'
35. Big City Nights
36. Send Me an Angel

You left off "Sails of Charon" and included the godawful "Born to Touch Your Feelings?"

Sorry, just love his vocals on that song. In fact, I know people that actually thought it was a chick singing. I like the whole album "Taken by Force" but I was trying to pick songs from every album for my list because with the exception of "Eye II Eye," I think every album they've done has shining moments. Besides it's all a matter of opinion right?

Favorite Scorpions album overall, for me, is "Lovedrive." Animal Magnetism and Black Out are close behind. Though most people despised Humanity Hour 1, I actually feel it's one of there more well-rounded discs as well.

In Trance, always been my favorite

Alien Nation, major guilty pleasure

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 25, 2012 9:34:17 PM PST
Totally, Richard, right on Rudolf, the unsung riff man in a sea of virtuosic guitarists that have been through the Scorps.

I had to bum a ride to work one day this week with a buddy who just happened to be on a Scorps kick. He had a couple of homemade compilation discs covering their whole career. I told him I always loved "I'm Leaving You" from Love at First Sting, but hadn't heard it in years. He fumbles around for like three seconds, and there it was, loud and clear! Great song.

Snob: I agree ("I'm Leaving You" is #12 on my list). It's an underrated gem with a great riff and a lot of energy that you never hear anymore.
