My Top 10 Favorite Songs by Judas Priest

.…as played on Mostly Metal, 103.1FM, Valparaiso, IN the week of Sun Apr 04, 2021.

Now here’s the thing about this particular Top 10 List. Unlike many other bands, I need to designate two entirely different top 10 lists for Priest. If I was going to come up with my top 10 high energy songs that I firmly expect to be in a concert set-list, things like Painkiller and Freewheel Burning would surely be in it. Some “famous” songs like Living After Midnight would be there, too. This is not that list. Instead, this is a list of songs from Priest that I want to hear when I’m home, alone, with headphones on, just chilling out. So it has a lot of the more grandiose offerings from Priest, maybe with some songs that I don’t expect they’ play live anymore – if ever. There are a couple of tunes that would appear on both lists, and maybe some day, I’ll make that other list. But for now, here you go: Ken’s Oddball Judas Priest list.
