A Peek Into Ozzy’s Brain

Hi this is Leslie Harris, and Ozzy Osbourne’s been around for a long time. He has influenced hundreds, if not thousands of other musicians, like Soundgarden, Ratt and Motley Crüe. Some of Ozzy’s and Black Sabbath’s influences include Cream, The Kinks, Led Zeppelin, and yes, even the Beatles.

Recently, Ozzy shared his list of his favorite 10 favorite songs of all time. Some of these might surprise you. In no particular order:

Goodbye Yellow Brick Road from Elton John

Imagine from John Lennon

Money from Pink Floyd

Yesterday from the Beatles

Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood from the Animals

Dazed and Confused from Led Zeppelin

Live and Let Die from Paul McCartney

Mississippi Queen from Mountain

A Day in the Life from the Beatles

And Hey Jude, also from the Beatles.

Half of those songs are from the Beatles, or solo works! That surprised me! I think Ozzy would enjoy The River, don’t you?

What surprised you about this list? Let me know in the comments.
