Over the Mountain (4:31)

Cover of Diary of a Madman

From Diary of a Madman and 27 other releases

“Over the Mountain” is the lead track of heavy metal musician Ozzy Osbourne’s album Diary of a Madman. It’s one of Ozzy’s most well known songs, and easily recognized by its drum introduction. This song has been released on several compilation albums.

# The song has been covered by heavy metal band Fozzy (fronted by professional wrestler Chris Jericho) on their debut album.

# At 2:30 the “Black Sabbath” tritone riff can be heard. Osbourne has since stated that guitarist Randy Rhoads never even realized that he copied it. “There’s a riff in Randy’s solo that he lifted from the song “Black Sabbath”. I don’t think that Randy ever realized it until I pointed it out to him later.”

Over the mountain take me across the sky
Something in my vision, something deep inside
Where did I wander, where d'ya think I wandered to
I've seen life's magic astral plane I travel through.
