Both are kind of repetitive, tbo.  Paranoid's aged better, though.

Paranoid, by a wide margin.

Great timing for this as I happen to be re-reading John Michael's autobio, I Am Ozzy.

I'm a much bigger Sabbath fan, but I'd take Paint it Black easily here.
Paranoid is a very ordinary song to me. Paint it Black is not ordinary at all, it's really special.

I was about to post something similar. I would take Sabbath over the Stones but Paranoid is a rather ordinary and straightforward song. Paint It Black isn't and is very unique in its composition. Which is a bit of a role reversal here since Sabbath were more of an outside the box band than the Stones were.

Paranoid's one of those, "I'm a real fan so I hate it," songs.  I love it.  Paint it Black's great too.  But there's a good reason both Live Evil and Speak of the Devil close with Paranoid.

I like Paranoid as much as the next guy, but The Stones were first for me, specifically the early Stones. Besides, that bass line in Paint It Black? Demonic.

Wyman is very underrated as bass player IMO.

I feel the need to pick "Paint It Black".  I listen to "the Rolling Stones" more.
