High noon, oh, I'd sell my soul for water
Nine years' worth of breakin' my back
There's no sun in the shadow of the wizard
See how he glides, why he's lighter than air

    I have seen this masterpiece live back in 1998. Dio is simply the greatest.

    This epic song about a wizard reaching for the stars could also be seen as a representation of the artist himself – as his ambitious fire paved the way for an influential brand of mighty metal. Everything comes together here in this Rainbow number. The vocal performance is impressive in its range and flexibility, the guitar solo by Ritchie Blackmore is mesmerizing and the drumming by Cozy Powell is absolutely powerful. Add the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra and some larger-than-life lyrics, and you’ve got the ultimate Dio track...watchmojo
