    And the defending champion — indeed, one of the all-time favourite Maidenfans songs — slots in at number five.

    I blame tactical voting. I've been doing my best to get Heaven, Children, Gates, Die Young, and Kill the King into the top ten and thus often skipping a vote for Stargazer. Seems many people have done the same considering there is no way ever that Falling Off the Edge of the World is a better track :innocent:

    Objectively Stargazer is a better track.
    But I'm voting subjectively, so :p

    But seriously, I think we are seeing the difference in the Survivor format of voting for favourites instead of least favourites.

    Absolutely. I'd love to do this with Maiden, as I think we'd see the same thing.

    Tactical voting for sure.

    Stargazer is surely better than other Rainbow material.

    Unknown One This is fine.

    Stargazer is simply by far the best song that Dio was apart of. Sure there are other great great songs (and the remaining 4 songs are quite worthy), but Stargazer trounces them all.

    Heaven and Hell is the only other Dio song that I'd mention in the same breath as Stargazer.

    Edge wins the tiebreaker over Children and settles into third.

    Will the champion be Heaven and Hell, or Gates of Babylon?

    And the new champion is crowned: Heaven and Hell.
    Four new top 10 songs and some decent shuffling from last time.

    The new format may have played a role. I liked it enough to try again.
    Thanks to all who played.

    Thanks for hosting, @mckindog! I really loved this format and would love to see it continue in future survivors.

    Interesting to see that only ONE solo Dio song made the top 10 this time versus four last time.

    Thanks for hosting! Pretty interesting way to do it. The Iron Maiden survivor will be done in a similar vein to this next year.
