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.
