KMA2830 RESULTS! Black Sabbath Poll: KMA Readers’ Choice Edition!

Only two records into it, and I’m already interrupting the LP Project. But there’s a good reason… you see…

All Apologies, Dear Readers, I got all excited about posting up a poll to determine your favourite Black Sabbath songs, waaaaay back on December 1, 2018! And then I never rounded up the results… hence the apologies.

So, let’s get to it! Most votes for any partcular song(s) was 8 votes, least was 0 (of course). I’d said we were looking 30 songs to make a set, so I’ll post those with the most votes (in order of votes received), and then below that I’ll post ALL of the results as they were received.

Ready? Of course you are. Go!

KMA READERS TOP 30 BLACK SABBATH SONGS:

War Pigs
Paranoid
Iron Man
Children Of The Grave
Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
Wasp/Behind The Wall Of Sleep/Bassically/N.I.B.
Electric Funeral
Sweet Leaf
Changes
Supernaut
Snowblind
Black Sabbath
The Wizard
Planet Caravan
Killing Yourself To Live
Heaven And Hell
After Forever (incl. The Elegy)
Into The Void
Neon Knights
The Mob Rules
God Is Dead?

Alright, that’s 21 tracks. Next batch of votes (below) takes us to 32 tracks, not 30, so remove 2 songs from the list above or the following few tracks (as you see fit) to make your 30! Or make it 32, that works too…

Wicked World
A Bit Of Finger/Sleeping Village/Warning
Lord Of This World
Sabbra Cadabra
Dirty Women
Never Say Die
Children Of The Sea
Lady Evil
The Sign Of The Southern Cross
I
End Of The Beginning

***

THOUGHTS:

I have to say, that’s an epic collection of tunes! Definitely 30 tracks anyone could call a fantastic Sabbath collection. For those in the know, there’ll likely be agreement (for the most part) with this list. For those not quite so immersed in the Sabbath world (yet!), this list would make a great primer of tunes to get you started! \m/  \m/

  2. I am just starting to really dive into them and I can already tell you this is a solid list. Call Sabbath and tell them we need another Greatest Hits album and these are the songs…write out check to KMA!!

  3. I’m not familiar with all the tunes that made the winning 32. I think I’ll save this post and do some searching on Spotify.

  7. Fake news! ‘Fairies Wear Boots’ is by far their best track, now if I’d actually gotten around to voting instead of just thinking about it …

  8. There is some serious Sabbath going on here!

  9. Aw mannn how did I miss this?? This is the sort of reason I need to go on WordPress more. A solid list of songs, but for me a lack of Lord of this World and Hand of Doom in the top 20 is criminal!!
