Off the top of my head, and in no apparent order:

Lady in Black
Easy Livin'
Gypsy  
July Morning
Look At Yourself
Sunrise
Tears in My Eyes
Traveller In Time
The Wizard
Circle of Hands

...a vigorous circular motion hitherto unknown to the people of this area, but destined
to take the place of the mud shark in your mythology...

That's okay/ I would have done a Uriah Heep songs poll eventually because I'm a fan of Ken Hensley & co too, although it would have been a Top 5 list, not a Top 10, as a Top 10 songs list can be  a bit of a headache when it's finally time to add up the points. Smile

Sorry! I forgot that you tally the points in order to post a cumulative list! (I was not intending to do this. I just wanted to see other people's choices.)

^^ My Uriah Heep Top 10 is pretty much every song that's in everyone else's list, with the addition of "Come Away Melinda" Smile

Going through the albums I have of UH, and compiling the top-10 list, Iíve just noticed how much this band means to me. I mean, theyíve often been relegated to the back-burner for me, bar Magicianís Birthday (which just floors me for some reason), but they have many quality releases.

I can't believe no one has mentioned "Stealing" yet!  Great tune!  Otherwise, my list is much like the others. 

RIP Gary Thain, who was a big influence on my own bass style, and David Byron, one of the premier rock front-men.
