Hmm given all the info would have to say Dressed in white off Fatal portrait very emotion producing sound in the guitars Kings vocals peak but not too over powering and mikkey rock solid and steady as always.

Alot of my friends in the 80s were into the same style of music as i was and this was typical yet all the girls we hung out with that listened to King Diamond all seemed to like Fatal portrait in Particular dressed in white.

Aside from that in my opinion its often good to let a person hear early meterial to give them a sense of how original and talented the band truly is and what they could do in the future so yeah i do suggest some Fatal portrait maybe even some Mercyful Fate such as At the sound of the demon bell.


Have fun and stay heavy ! \m/

What about Melissa (the song)? It's the first of Mercyful Fate that I ever heard.

For MF I'd suggest "Evil" or "Dangerous Meeting" for first timers

I think, it would be a good idea that she listen an intro and the first song of any disc, so, then she will want to listen  the complete album to know what happen with the history...
I recommend you: Abigail or Them album \m/

I think "The Curse" would be a good introduction cause of the mix of high and lower vocals. Plus its just flat out awesome.

For Mercyful Fate I'd recommend "The Bell Witch", "Into the Coven", or "Shadows"

In the shadows would indeed be a good start for her.

Amon belongs to them would be a good one too.

I always play "Arrival" or "Charon"

Arrival is just an amazing song and it shows how king tells a story and charon is good because everyone knows that story and can relate and understand what king does

So what's the verdict? Have you chosen a song yet? Did you play it for her?  What's happening? The suspence is killing me.....well, not really, but tell us more!

Hey all, I decided to send her Eye Of The Witch, A Visit From The Dead, and Black Horsemen.  Haven't heard back yet, but I will definately post her reaction when the time comes.   \m/

At the Graves is very good. It was my first song what I heard and I got hooked for the band.

I would play A Dangerous Meeting, it was the first song where I heard King's voice. When I got the DBtO album, at first I repeatedly listened to that song 'cause of  it's dark and eerie feeling. It's a bit different when compared to the rest of the album, or at least I somehow feel like that.

When I was at the home of one of my female friend, she played some Tchaikovsky to me. Well, I had Unholy's album The Second Ring Of Power with me in my walkman, so I played Serious Personality Disturbance And Deep Anxiety to her. I wonder why she didn't like it O_O

I love "The Candle".  It was first KD song I ever heard.  Sleepless nights is great, too.  My girlfriend thinks King is nuts but even she knows that song when it's playing.

The Candle, its a catchy tune.  I was listening to it one day and the next thing I knew my mother was humming the song.  LOL \m/  She couldn't believe it.  I can just imagine my mom banging her head to King.  I'm a bad influence  :D:
